Your Home in Danbury,CT Is Used

Real Estate Agent with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty CT RES.0783448

Unless you are buying new construction in the Danbury area, the place you purchase and decide to call home is used. I know that sounds pretty bad, but it is the truth. The home that you have purchased has been maintained and upgraded over the years, but might not be completely new up  not built to today's standard. However, just like you would when you would be purchasing a used car, you would have it inspected as part of your decision making process after you reach an agreement with the seller.  I only recommended buyers to ask for any credit, repair or allowance for any health and safety issue, one that you can't tell by just looking at the home when you come through to look at it.  For example, we would ask for an electrical issue or plumbing issue, nothing cosmetic such as a nail pop or loose switch plate. Just because something is the house is old, like the furnace, but is maintained regularly, it doesn't mean you should or can go back to the home seller looking for a new furnace if the inspector says it it still working.

So what do you suggest for a home buyer or home seller in the Greater Danbury & Candlewood Lake area of Connecticut? Look at the house objectively and realize over the next few years, that you will have some work to doing addition to any possible cosmetic changes.See what the most important issues would be. If the buyer comes back after the inspection with their list of requests ,the seller don't fix anything and then buyer walks away, home sellers would have to update their property disclosures & any new buyer might come back looking for the same repairs.  In addition, home buyers should understand that the negotiated sales price usually takes in to consideration the property being in good condition.Always ask your trusted real estate agent for their opinion, on what should be addressed or not, but it always your call.
