A 3 Bedroom Home in zip code 06708 in Waterbury CT and seller and buyers all very happy.Picking up a listing that has expired can be a challenge as the exposure that it would have received could work against the seller.  This 3 bedroom split level home had a lot to offer with over 1,200 sq ft of living space, brand new gas boiler, hardwood flooring,  newer roof and replacement windows. Pricing was a challenge as there was not a lot of room for the seller to move.Photos were taken to display the property in it's best possible condition.  Some minor cosmetic work was done by the seller to make it show better and we even priced it at a slight higher value than it's last exposure.After 30 days on market, we received a full price offer from a seller that also had their own home under contrac...

New HUD Disclosures Will Make Closing More Challenging after Aug 1 The new CFPB rules regarding the buyer loan process will take effect on Aug 1, and there will be a lot of angst created because of them.  The purpose is to make the closings more buyer friendly and are intended to allow the Borrower, who will now be called the Consumer, to get a more competitive loan.  Our local Board hosted a breakfast this week with representatives from Fidelity Title to discuss the new rules and forms. A lawyer was also present, as all closings in CT are done through attorneys. It should be mentioned first, that any loans started prior to Aug 1 can proceed under the old rules and forms. All loans initiated after Aug 1 must follow the new guidelines and use the new forms.   Loan Estimate:  New Consumer...

Waterbury CT Foreclosures for Sale - April 2015 Currently there are 54 Active Foreclosure Listings in the Waterbury CT area, and shown on the Statewide MLS system. Prices range from $22,900 to $179,900. Bank owned foreclosures can be a good deal for home buyers provided they have the patience for them and can qualify for some of the special financing sometimes needed to make the purchase.  Not many foreclosures can qualify for an FHA or even some conventional mortgages. Therefore, unless the buyer has a large cash reserve they should get pre-qualified for a rehab loan. Getting pre-approved is even better as it could mean the difference in a tight multiple bidding situation as banks are always looking for the buyer that can close the soonest with the least number of contingencies. Some C...
