In case anybody out there is wondering, I don't only do townhome and condo sellers and buyers. I am also quite experienced with working with clients that need to purchase or sell a more traditional single family home. If you currently own a townhome and feel a single family home would be a better fit your lifestyle, I have the knowledge and experience to make your transition and moving process as stress free as possible. In the other side, if you currently own a single family home in the Greater Danbury area and realize it is time to move into a condominium, we can partner to insure a quick sale & make your sure your purchase is just perfect for you, not settling. I look forward to hearing from you.
You look at a unit differently when you are going to be renting it out for an investment than you would if you were to move in. As a full time real estate professional in the Danbury area, I can evalute a property you are considering purchasing. I can provide an estimate monthly rent, repairs or upgrades to be done prior to the marketing for lease, and anything else I feel you should be concerned about, both positives and negatives. When you are investing and leasing real estate, depending on the price range, a home does not have to be perfect. The most important things are a working furnace, cooling, and hot water heater. Applicances should be in working order. The windows, doors and garage should be working. There should be no large holes in the walls. Flooring should be clean. There should be no leakings or clogged plumbing.
I recommend all buyers work with a professional agent when they are looking for a new home. This should stay particularly true even when you are looking new construction opportunities.I have heard several first hand accounts of people who have purchased new homes directly from the builder. They have paid, in opinion, much higher than an existing resale property. On-site builders representations are hired and trained to get the highest price and most favorable terms & conditions for the builder. They are not allowed to talk about resale listings in the community, and they can not show you the resale units. I have recently worked with a client purchase a new home after marketing and selling their current home. Since time was important for them, as their sale was secure, we went out and viewed several existing units in the area. They focused in one on community, and we toured all available lightly used resale homes. Many of the units we toured were great, but not quite what the client wanted for another of reasons. We decided then, they wanted to explore custom building, so we went back to sales office. We reviewed what that site were available, and the various floor plans. We decided on a site with the appropriate floor plan. We negotiated the base price, which was a little higher than the market value. I then accompanied then to the design center to pick out cosmetic features (flooring,cabinets,appliances,counters,etc) and a few structural changes (vents, overhead lighting, garage,etc). I made sure the cost for the upgrades would add value for resale as well as make the unit ideal for the purchaser. I was able to check the progress of the construction several times, since the purchaser was out for town for most of the time the unit was completed. When the buyer’s lender dropped the ball (the mortgage broker the buyer came in with,), I was able to connect the buyer with a professional that I work with on a regular basis who was able to come in, save the day, and get the unit closed!

What does it take to sell a house!
-Have your home listed on the market and marketed to attract a qualified buyer. -Buyer falls in love with home, or sees the potential at the right price, and decides to place on offer on the home-Come to a meeting of the minds on the finds over sale price, terms and conditions. -Buyer performs home inspection on the property-Buyer applies for financing with bank-Contracts are signed with the attorneys-Buyer’s bank does appraisal on property, buyer works on securing financing and obtains financing.-Closing!
It isn’t rocket science! If it was so difficult and a long drawn out process, no one would never be moving.
My philosophy is to take on everything and do it right. That includes buying a home. How do you be good homebuyer?-Be qualified by a reputable local lender before wanting to view homes!-Give plenty of notice before waiting to view a home. It takes time to set up showings and sellers need to know ahead of time so they can prepare for your visit.-Show up on time showing appointments!-Don’t sweat the same stuff on finding the your dream home. That includes paint choice, flooring, choice of bath or kitchen fixtures. That can be changed to meet your needs. That would help make the house into your home.-Offer a reasonable price based on the sales! -Follow up diligently with your closing attorney and mortgage broker. It is very common that banks want your whole life story before they issue a clear to close.
