Great Deals For First Time Buyers~Many Danbury CT Condos For Sale!

Many of the first time buyers that I am working with in Danbury are looking for condos. They choose to look at condos because they don’t have to worry about maintaining the exterior, typically get more square feet compared to similarly priced single family homes, and get to enjoy community amenities.

With a larger supply of units available (currently 130 units under $275,000 per CMLS 2/5/09), there are plenty of units to choose from, so you can be picky on the complex, location in the complex and on the condition of units. In addition to the large supply, historically low interest rates as well as homebuyer tax credit, I would find it hard to resist looking for your first home if you have a stable job & having some funds to put as your down payment.

There are many great buys in some of the sought after complexs, such as Westwood Village, Arrowood, Covered Bridge, Birchwood, Park Ridge & Shepherd Hill.

See all of the Danbury Condos Under $275,000!

Why You Don’t See For Sale Signs in Condo Communities

Often, I get calls from people saying they went into ‘xyz community’ located here, and they want to know more information about it & wonder what it is for sale. To there surprise, there are several units for sale in some of the luxury townhome communities in Danbury, such as Woodland Hills, Kensington Woods and Arlington Woods.

 

All condo & townhouse communities have restrictions written in to the homeowner’s association rules saying what they can and can’t do with the exterior. One of those things is about ‘for sale’ signs. Almost all of the townhome and condo communities do not allow them because they don’t want those units to stand out from the others. Also, they don’t want people driving around in the communities without a reason to be there (visiting friends or looking at property with an agent).

However, if you do decide to drive in to a complex and want more information on what is for sale or to arrange showings to units for sale, please send me an email.
