I have helped several clients that have been long distance property owners over the years. Being an absentee owner means that you no longer live in the Danbury,CT area but have retained real estate in the area. I can either them with the lease of their property, or a sale if they no longer wish to retain real estate in the Greater Danbury area. When they have decided to sell, I've been able to present acceptable offers in timely manner with minimal stress. Whether they lived in the home and then moved locally or out of the area, or purchased real estate in the Danbury area specifically for investment properties or other reasons, my clients have trusted me to handle the sale of one their largest assets, a home. I have done so by working hard, telling it like it is in terms of property condition & market conditions and going to work by doing what I say. Whether you are looking to lease your property currently or sell in the future, or have no plans on selling down the road, I still welcome your interest & would like the opportunity to partner with you.
There are some advantages of selling your property that you might consider. They would include having the equity available to pursue other investments closer to your home, becoming more liquid for long-term financial planning, additional financial considerations or you have been grown tired over the years of dealing with tenants. It also can be stressful managing a property that you do not occupy. It can also be challenging if tenants are complaining about property condition or slow/late to pay their rent. Stress may occur when it is near the end of the lease, the current tenants plan on vacating and the unit may need work before renting it again. There currently is a shortage of available properties so you may be able to deposit quickly if you decide to list. It also be can frustrating if there is a vacancy in your property and you are not getting qualified applicants to take it. I would be more than happy to help you rent if you decide that's the better option, learn more here!
. Even if you are not considering selling in the near future, I can give you a quick market opinion of value for your financial planning or if you'd want to do a home equity line or refinance. We could also try selling it and then put the property up for rent if we are not getting the results that you would like.
After viewing your home, I can evaluate the homes condition for the current market & provide to you a recommended price range for selling. I can also give a generally idea of the investment to freshen up, and provide an opinion of value once work has been completed. I am very honest and upfront & don't like to see clients spend money on things the house might not need. However, I am not afraid to tell you something is wrong is I feel it would be an issue for the market. I love to talk about presentation & prep work as well along with pricing strategy. If you need maintenance to be completed at the property to prepare it for sale or a new tenant, I can help you arrange for services such as painting, cleaning or general handyman repairs. I can also supply vendor recommendations for appliance replacement, flooring, HVAC or more if we determine these items need to be addressed to bring up the market standards.I I send a lot of pictures and can do zoom tours of your property so you can see the condition the unit is in.It is ultimately the sellers responsible to hire, determine scope of work and discuss payment with each service provider. When selling or leasing the home vacant, it is the owners responsibility to keep heat, air conditioning in the summer months, power & water on, as well as insure the property, and should have someone go through and clean before listing the home. Buyers are generally willing to pay more for a property that is move in ready vs those that have items near the end of their service life. We can talk more about that once I see your property.
I am ready to work and will take care of all the paperwork for you to get the home on the market. I can also make recommendation of area legal firms that you would hire for the closing when we get a buyer. I'll be happy to explain the process of getting the house from pre-listing stages to the closing table. If you are not ready to sell at this point, I also service landlord clients by representing them on leasing. I can keep you updated on the local market & point you in the right direction with any questions that you may have along the way. I look forward to hearing from you.
