Clients ask what is the best condo development for them in the area of Danbury,CT. There are several things to consider when deciding on where you should a condo in Danbury,CT.
-Location of Unit & Complex:
The location of in the complex does make a difference.Danbury itself is a midsized city, of 85,000 residents. There is 42 square miles of land. There are approximately eight interstate exits. It is at the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, approximately 65 miles northeast from Times Square. There is an urban core, plus a number of outlying more suburban areas. There are condos and townhome scattered throughout most of the city.
The location inside of the complex itself matters too!In one complex, some units back up to a main road and have been more difficult to sell & have sold more less than similar properties. Some buyers may prefer that possible negative, such as being too close to the pool. Some buyers may prefer being further to their job, as they like to think and reflect on the days on their commute. Others may not like the ideal of living right next to the community pool, where others see it as a good thing especially in the summer months.
With condos, you can not change the floor plan. Ask yourself when you are looking at units, is the space set up for you? Do you like how the kitchen is designed? Do you like having a lower level, with or without a walkout lower level, or does that not matter to do? Is the garage and laundry at a convenient location for you? How many square feet to do feel is right? Is the space functional to accommodate your possessions and lifestyle?
I have had some clients that didn’t even want to paint, and others that are willing to take on a basically a full blown top to bottom renovation. However, most condos are in generally good condition. Of course, most clients would like to make a few changes to personalize the home. My personal taste and style does not impact my professional opinion and valuing properties as a Realtor in the Danbury,CT Area. Also be observant on how the home owners association is maintaining the exterior of the complex and any amenities.

-Comparison of value:
You as the buyer determine the value. Is it worth it for you to pay more for a turn key unit, rather than to invest your own TLC to update the unit to your standards. Is the extra space worth it to you? Is being a few minutes further from the New York State border with it if you can save on the purchase price? Do you feel the whole package, being the layout, location and complex, is worth you investing in purchasing this property? Is it the best condo for you?
