Westwood Village – Recent Real Estate Activity:
Up to the middle of 2008, Danbury seemed to be immune for the economic slowdown and housing crisis. Danbury historically does better than most of the country due to proximity to NYC, major secondary employment markets near by, large economic base in Danbury and affordability compared to lower Fairfield County and Westchester County,NY. But in this market, there is a correction. 1 bedroom units prices have declined about 15% since 2007, which is about typical for the entire marketplace. Prices of 2 bedroom units have fallen dramatically about 29% since 2007. Three bedroom units have only experienced a slight decline, due to lack available inventory of 3 bedroom units in the development.
*Westwood Village offers different floor plans 1 and 2 bedroom units offering different amount of spaces. Sometimes if a couple smaller ones sell, it has a much larger negative effect on the prices. For further detailed sales information, please contact me.

Not only are prices favorable, interest rates are Buyers should be get on the train because this combination might not come back for a very long time. Most of time, with rents rising, you can be homeowner for almost much money as you would be paying in rent on top of getting all the benefits of owning a home.
