litchfield county: What is your home worth? Click my new toy and find out! - 11/10/16 08:06 AM
Finding out what your home may be worth in Connecticut is on most homeowner's minds. And I just got a brand new toy that makes it so easy! Of course it will give you an idea what it may be worth. No computer generated program has ever actually seen your home, or seen the comps that it pulls up. But my company just gave me a brand spankin new toy to use, and it seems to be fairly good! It is a start for the curious home owner who wants to find out what their home may be worth.

litchfield county: I have just seen the most beautiful home ever, Litchfield County - 10/27/16 05:51 AM
I went out yesterday with my office leader to look at a few homes, one was just because we both just had to see it. A home for a very discriminating buyer in Litchfield County, someone who wants privacy, who appreciates only the best in a home. I wish I could show you photos, but I can't. Photos wouldn't do it justice anyway. 
I have seen many homes over the years, all sizes and prices. From the smallest of homes to palatial mansions, but I have never, ever seen a home that was as well designed and well built as this home. Not a … (6 comments)

litchfield county: The colors of New England - 10/21/16 10:04 AM

Another magnificent show, who needs TV when you can walk outside and see this? I don't think there is anything quite like fall in New England. I had thought to get out and take photos all around the area, but never quite made it that far. I really only walked about 150 steps to get this shot the other morning. 
It doesn't get much better than this. It really, really doesn't! All is certainly right with the world.

litchfield county: I know you need a little New Milford CT in your life right now - 06/13/16 07:37 AM
I have said it before and I will continue to say it. I am blessed in my life. Location, location, location, it is so important in life. I see photos from all around the United States from my real estate buddies and for a moment I am a bit jealous. For a moment. That would be because I am sitting at my computer when reading, not outside looking at what is right outside my back door. (I am blessed by more than location, but for this moment in time, location is a big deal to me!)
My husband and I got to … (7 comments)

litchfield county: Spotlight New Milford, CT. Our beautiful village center. - 06/04/16 01:20 AM
Litchfield County Connecticut, Spotlight on New Milford Downtown Area.
I love New Milford at any time of year. I am not sure which part of New Milford makes it so special, I think it is all the parts as a whole. But I am particularly fond of the downtown area. The phrase "quintessential New England" comes to mind! I have read that it is perhaps the most beautiful Village Green in Connecticut. I venture to say all of New England! I could be bragging, but I doubt it. 
We use our Village Green! It's not just for show. 
The local downtown business community has … (10 comments)

litchfield county: The real low down, New Milford, CT real estate values - 06/03/16 03:52 AM
So, how is the real estate market in New Milford, CT? Good news first. The number of sales for May 2016 were up over April. But down from May 2015.
May 2015: 30 single family home sold May 2016: 25 single family home sold April 2016: 19 single family home sold Currently there are 237 single family homes for sale on the MLS. That puts the absorption rate at 10 months. What that means is we need 10 months to sell our current inventory, given no other homes come on the market. 
The days on market are also creeping up, currently it is standing … (3 comments)

litchfield county: What a way to end the hot, hot day - 05/28/16 11:05 AM
Sometimes you just have to stop and say... nothing. Just stop and be thankful for the beauty that is around us every day. Sometimes it is in a quiet way, a few puffy white clouds passing by set against a brilliant blue sky, a brook meandering though lush green banks, sometimes it feels as if the earth may be coming to an end with lightening streaking across the sky. Tonight it was dramatic, a stop you dead in your tracks type of moment. This one certainly caused me to run for my camera! 
I am truly blessed. I live at one of … (28 comments)

litchfield county: Who doesn't love laying in the grass on a beautiful spring day? - 04/30/16 10:11 PM
I am blessed that I get to take my dog for long walks through beautiful farmland, corn fields and hay fields all surrounded by woods, birds, deer, and who knows what else. It is cathartic, quiets my mind and is just fun! I take my camera and half way through I sit patiently and wait, camera at the ready, to capture something wonderful. 
The other day I caught something wonderful alright! My dear Georgia was fully enjoying our time out. Dogs really are in the moment. Of course just after this photo was shot she heard something and was off like a … (17 comments)

litchfield county: Sunrise Over the Corn - 09/26/15 10:15 PM
I love the fall in New England. I am mesmerized with the colors! Of course the crisp air feels fantastic. Putting it all together energizes me, and my camera is never far away from me, even when walking the dog in the morning. This morning did not let me down. Now how lucky am I that I get to see this every morning while walking the dog?

litchfield county: Good, bad, or ugly? New Milford CT year end real estate market report. - 02/24/15 03:51 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.
We are still moving through distressed sales, both foreclosure and short sales. In 2014,  21% … (6 comments)

litchfield county: Why DIY septic repairs may not be the best idea - 10/07/14 07:55 PM
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)
