Just Purchased, 5 Cel Bret Drive Danbury, CT

CelBret 

Jonathan Hall of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Greater Danbury Brokerage represented the buyer of this 4 bedroom colonial on a  in Western Danbury. Located at 5 Cel Bret Drive, this 2152 square foot home offers hardwood floors (waiting to be refinished), a newer roof, vinyl replacement windows and sits on a level 1 acre lot with scenic hillside views. This home sits on the a cul de sac of quality homes along the Ridgefield line in the Miry Brook district of Danbury, only minutes to New York State, the Danbury Mall, I-84 and Route 7.

This home was just what my clients were looking for. A home that has been maintained over the years, but could use some updating in some areas. Once I took over the transaction for my clients, the home was closed in less than 45 days from the date the home took the deposit. It would have been less if it wasn’t for dealing with some unexpected red tape that the sellers had no idea about at Danbury City Hall. Luckily for my clients and the homeowners, we are able to reach a happy conclusion for all parties.

This was a very in demand property, and my clients won out on the multiple offers. If you know a home in the Miry Brook area of Danbury and are considering a move in the future, please contact me.

Relocating From Greater Danbury Because of Weather?

If you are sick of seeing the photo below and you live in the Greater Danbury area of Connecticut, please continue reading.
snow
This does not have to be the way you live. The  New England and Danbury does offer many benefits, however it does have a  snowy winter. Some years are better than the rest. It seems like this is the worst year I have seen in terms of amount of snowfall, days where the town basically has to shut down because of the snow, and  it feels like spring is not going to be coming for months. If you are sick of dealing with the snow, you are not alone.

If you have reached a point in your life where you feel it is time to move on, the first step is getting a professional opinion of value of your largest asset, your home. This will give you the information that you need to make a decision.  Once you feel comfortable after reviewing the information, we can come with up with a strategy to get the house sold.

Research areas you are considering relocated to. Perhaps a visit to a couple of areas would help in your decision making process. Once you have made a decision on where you like to move to, I can connect you with one of our experienced real estate professionals through our affiliated brokerage firms. They will assist you on the home buying process by providing things such as neighborhood and community information. 

As soon as you want to start the process going by listing your home, the sooner you get to sit back and enjoy life.

Your Danbury,CT Area Home Purchase and Commute

Like most people, if you live in the area, you have to work for a living. A great thing about Danbury is that it has the lowest unemployment rate in the state.

IMG_20130817_110644_872 
In Danbury, there are number of large employers, such as Cartus, the Danbury Hospital, Boehringer Ingelheim and more. Within an hour, there are is a lot of employment opportunities at Somers, Stamford, Norwalk, White Plains, Greenwich, Tarrytown, Hartford, and New York City.

Due to the lower costs of real estate and property taxes, the Greater Danbury and Candlewood Lake area is a natural fit for buyers looking for a place to call home.

IMG_20130817_104522_695 How does this effect the real estate market? Because of the large employment base in Danbury as well as as large regional employment centers within commuting distance, there are no wild changes in the economy.  On the national level, the Danbury area is historically the last area effected by a downturn and one of the first areas on the economic growth.  

Typically,the further away from New York City you go, the more affordable homes are due to the increase of time you would spend commuting. However, there are expectations to a rule and as an experienced real estate profession, I can help you navigate the market and help identify the right property for your families needs. There is not a vast amount of inventory in certain price ranges, but there are still some short sales and foreclosure properties.

The real estate market is dynamic. The Danbury area offers all types of the real estate, so the market is not dominated by one type of buyer (such as luxury, second home,etc). It is a fairly good sized market, with people always going in and leaving, yet there is a still large amount of people who have been living in the area for years.

For determing a commute, I always suggest buyers plug in any perspective new address into goggle maps, and with the traffic field, see how long it would take to get their place of employment. There are some local tips and shortcuts to save time for your commute . You can always get a satellite or street view of the neighborhood. If you feel the property is too far away or you don’t like the neighborhood, we don’t have to arrange for a viewing.  Your budget and commute tolerance does determine the type of property that you would be purchasing.

Parking and Your Danbury,CT Area Townhome

IMG_20130812_092904_293

Parking does matter in addition in to price, location and condition. Most buyers when they come home from a day’s work or out doing errands that there is a nearby parking spot waiting from them, if their unit does not have a garage.  In most cases, parking is pretty close by. Having parking far away can be a pain for you, but then is good exercise. I have seen some properties in the area where there is a large slope up or down the unit. 
IMG_20130812_093858_090
Guest parking is important to most buyers looking for a condo in the Danbury area.  Having a space where  visitors to park safely, without danger of being towed,can weigh into buyers decisions whether they decide they want to purchase your place or not. 

 IMG_20130812_093008_434
Granted, you might not care about parking , but the next buyer might see issues with you. As a condo owner, there is generally nothing that you can do to change the parking situation.With properties that have a large slope, your condo may miss a good portion of the buyers (couples or singles with young children & seniors).  When  it is time to sell your property, the buyer for your home is most likely going to be someone like you who wants to live the neighborhood who finds the home just perfect for them.Also price can be a factor to, in terms of purchase price and monthly homeowner association dues .For properties that are parking challenged, you may be able to purchase the property for a less than other units in the area, but you do make it up on the back end when its time to sell.
IMG_20130812_094218_223
Look over your rules. Typically parking rules include things like you can only use your assigned space, can’t park on the street, guest space use and  you’re not used to be working on your car . Often, additional regulations restrict unregistered or cars and inoperable vehicles, the use of spaces for cars only and parking of recreational vehicles .
