Following up to the market stats on condos in Danbury. there are several things to consider when looking to purchase a condo or townhouse in the Danbury area. On top of the things buyers should be looking at for a single family home (like layout and mechincal systems), there are things that are unique to note when looking for a condo: Is the community located in a neighborhood that you would feel comfortable living in?

Danbury Connecticut Condos - 03/27/08 09:36 AM
Condos are good an attractive option for first time homeowners since they are generally more affordable than single family homes of similar square footage. Another benefit is the monthly homeowner's associations dues cover exterior maintaince such as gardening & snow removal. They are also attractive to people looking to enjoy community amenities and don't have the personal funds or time to maintain things, such as a pool & tennis courts found at many condo & townhome communities in the Greater Danbury area.

Short Sales and Bank Owned Real Estate - 03/04/08 03:08 PM
As many of you have read in the local paper and seen on the news, there is a 'short short and bank owned' real estate phenomenium across the country. The City of Danbury is not immune from this national problem, but the problem is the area is not as far fledged as others in the country.

The seller put together papers for the bank and were filled (0 comments)
