Why Own a Condo or Townhome in Danbury,CT?



Purchasing a condo or townhome in Danbury makes sense for many people, from first time buyers to empty nesters to investors. You are typically only have to maintain for the inside your unit, which means no gutters to clean, no driveway to shovel or maintain, no yard work to do nor roof & siding to worry about.

Frist time buyers can afford to own their own home at a much more favorable price point than a single family home.First time buyers shouldn't have to worry about major repairs. Most condos on the market are in pretty good shape so you don't have put any work into before you move in but you can improve them over time with any upgrades you wish to do in terms of flooring,paint, applicances and fixtures. The major systems you should check is the hot water heater, furnace, cooling and electrical panel. There are many affordable options to choose from in the area, including one bedroom & two bedroom options, with one, two or three levels depending on your needs. Some places even have a garage. I do work with a number of first time buyers. You still can make some changes turning the unit into your home & enjoy the tax benefits of owning. In several scenarios, owning can be more affordable than rent.Please contact me at 203-417-0523 or danburyrealestate@gmail.com to see how I can help you get your first place.

Condos or townhome can work well for empty nesters or busy professionals that are looking for the space of a single family home, but with a maintenance free lifestyle. You can find well appointed, fairly modern units, with sizes from 1300 to over 3000 square feet above grade. There are some smaller options available. Some units have a garage accessed from the main level & main level master suites. There are some ranch units available in the area, but most units are two or three levels, but there are some ranch units are available. Some of these spacious may be larger than some single family homes in the area, but without the required upkeep and maintenance. After owning and maintaining a single family home, going into a townhome or condo in Danbury would give you more time to pursue for leisurely activity. I welcome inquires for clients seeking this types of properties as well.

I have even heard of buyers looking to own condos as vacation homes, or snowbirds that spend half of the year here & the other half of the year in other parts of the country. With a condo, you can just turn off the power, turn off the water & winterize the unit and lock up, so you shouldn't have to worry about any problems happening.You can come and go at your leaisure.If you need help finding a great Danbury townhome to call home, please contact me at 203-417-0523 or jhall@danbury-condos.com    .

I have some clients which have purchased condos as an investment property. Landlords do not have worry about much potential things breaking by tenants, compared to a single family home or multi family home. Landlords need to educate the tenant on some of the rules, so they won't get in trouble by the condo board.  Condo fees cover all the exterior maintenance, but landlords need to watch the fees and property taxes because they can eat about some of the profit. Certain communities have regulations on making properties rented. For information on investment properties, please contact me.
