As your real estate agent, I am not involved one bit in your finances when you would be buying a home. Your loan officer or mortgage broker, on the other hand, will be knee deep in your finances. I only need to know that you qualify for a mortgage, how much down you would be planning no downing on the house and that's it. I would also need to know if it is a conventional mortgage or fha. We would need to get that upfront before we go house hunting, as  When we find the right home, the offer does get accompanied with your pre-approval or pre-qualification letter with the offer, so the home sellers know based on the information you have provided to the lender that you have been determined at this point that you can qualify for a mortgage.When are you selling your home, I don't get to know...

When you are purchasing a townhome in CT, there is a standard contingency. In addition to the normal stuff a home buyer would ask need, including a satisfactory building inspection, getting a mortgage, clean title & formal contract of sale and the house appraising, the sale is also contingent of the buyers review & approval of the by-laws and resale package. This is paperwork given to us that is ordered by the attorney's office from the property management company. It is typically ordered once the building inspection is complete and after right the formal contracts have been signed. It is never ordered from the offer is submitted by the home buyer.This is different than the condo questionnaire that your lender does need as part of the mortgage process.The by-laws and resale package tell...

Each individual property and home owner determines the way showings are handed for the sale of their home in the Greater Danbury & Candlewood Lake area of Western Connecticut. There are some basics that I keep doing for all my the properties that I have represented over the years:-Each home must have a lockbox on. It does not have to be out all the time if you are not comfortable with it. Only licensed agents can use it and it is not a combination that can be possibly broken into. Agents can only access the unit with their registered & secured program on their cell phone.  -The sellers, if still living in the house, will only be contacted me for all showings. They will not get calls or text messages from other agents for notifications of showings, the inspections, bank appraisal coming ...

As a real estate agent serving the Greater Danbury area, it is my goal to help my home buyer clients purchase their next home My clients ultimately decide on which property they would like to purchase, and how much they would like their offer to be on a home. It depends on how much you want the house.Most homes are generally selling between 97-98% of their final asking price. To prove to sellers that you are serious about their home, I would recommend home buyers start their offers at about 90% to kind of feel the sellers out, based on my experience. However, before making the offer, I prepare a formal market analysis on the home to see about where the home should sell for. I also examine the tax record of the home and review the property history. We would need to take more about a stra...

There are still some distress properties in the Greater Danbury & Candlewood Lake area. Distress properties means a bank owned foreclosure or a short sale. In both cases,the home is being sold in 'as is' condition. This means the home buyer does have the right to perform their inspections, but the home seller is not going to be fix anything. In a short sale situation, the buyer typically has to perform their inspections prior to the sellers attorney submitting their short sale package into the bank. You might be possibly able to negotiate a little bit of money of the purchase price  on the short sale with the home seller if there are items that concern you but are reasonable(submit to the lien-holders approving the sales price), which we can talk about after the inspection.  In a short ...
