real estate: Just how many frogs am I going to have to kiss? - 04/22/16 07:31 PM
If you want to sell your house in New Milford, you are going to have to kiss quite a few of those suckers.
One comment I hear over and over again from sellers (many of whom are not on their first go round) is that they only want serious buyers to come look. I know it is difficult to get the house ready for a showing. And it is so disappointing when those frogs don't like it, for whatever reason. The neighborhood, the colors inside the house (yes they can paint, no they don't want to), it's too close to whatever, it's … (52 comments)

real estate: We deal with people every day, what's the big deal? - 04/22/16 03:29 PM
I was inspired by a featured post written by Tammy Lankford  titled Ask an Ambassador: do you really
want to send consumers away?  Tammy explained how we need to uncheck the little box on YouTube when we get an embed code that stops that annoying ending where they "suggest" other videos, which can suggest those all important readers right off your site. 
Thank you Tammy! I just spent the last 2 days doing videos and placing them all over the place! I suffer from justclickandrun syndrome, I never bothered to read the fine print! 
But that brings me to my point. Sometimes it takes … (13 comments)

real estate: Selling vs. renting, it's not like buying vs. renting! - 06/25/15 03:10 PM
To sell or to rent, that is the question. Sometimes a seller feels like their is no choice, if they can't sell in a very timely fashion then they feel pressure to rent. 
Maybe you have already purchased another home, or are relocating out of the area, or you are trying to sell to get out from under a mortgage you can no longer afford. 
There are pro's and con's, just like buying vs. renting. But the brunt of the con's fall to the would be seller turned landlord. 
In New Milford, CT over the past few years some sellers felt forced to rent. The … (18 comments)

real estate: “Clients that Don’t Heed the Advice of a Home Inspector” - 03/14/15 05:13 AM
AKA: You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, and when to run away screaming like a little girl! 
Joe Petrowsky wrote a great post about how a buyer can get in so deep they don't realize that it's time to run screaming like a little girl! 
As a real estate agent in Southern Litchfield County CT, I have seen this happen before. I have tried to move clients on as the deal becomes so twisted that even Houdini couldn't untie the knots in it. Getting caught up with the end result no matter what will … (6 comments)

real estate: Good, bad, or ugly? New Milford CT year end real estate market report. - 02/24/15 11:51 AM
Sales in New Milford, CT have not been robust for the past few months, some are blaming the weather, but even before the cold and snow, things had started to slow down. 
The good, the bad and the potentially ugly, New Milford CT real estate market. 
2013 saw higher average sales price over 2014. 2014 saw one more single family home sell over 2013. 2013 and 2014 were both better years for the real estate market than 2012. Here is how it looks on paper.

real estate: Why DIY septic repairs may not be the best idea - 10/08/14 02:55 AM
Southern Litchfield County Real Estate, getting your house ready to sell.
The majority of homes here in Southern Litchfield County have septic systems. Many of the older homes have the original systems which can pose problems. They are not "for life", they do need upkeep, repairs, and yes even sometimes they need to be replaced.
Don't DIY it on the septic systems or you could be knee deep in stinky sludge!
I can't say that I am a big proponent of DIY septic repairs. Although they don't have many "moving parts", they require knowledge of how a system works and they … (12 comments)

real estate: How much is my house worth? aka here comes the kiss of death - 10/06/14 03:44 PM
Southern Litchfield County Real Estate. 
Connecticut real estate has not yet caught up with the rest of the country despite what the national news says. I am sure there are some markets around the country that are doing well, and there are many that are like we are here in Connecticut. And yet there are some places in Connecticut that I hear are doing better than we are here in Southern Litchfield County. 
The bottom line is, real estate is hyper local. Because of that, our local market might not be living up to the national news. Your house may not … (34 comments)
