What Property Information Is Available On A Home in Danbury,CT Area

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

You can get a lot of property information for a variety of sources for your real estate needs in the Greater Danbury area. When I present with a home buyer or seller, I typically start by reviewing any of the prior multiple listing entries to see whether the home was on the market at some point in time. If the owner tried to sell within the last few years, I could possibly even have access to the property disclosure forms if the sellers agent had attached the documents to the listing. 

After that as a real estate professional, I obtain a copy of the property tax records from the MLS. That page would display any sales information from many years ago, any old mortgages or liens filed on the house. The next source is the town's tax records, which is found online & shows the size and property details that are on file for the house. When I represent a home owner, I typically try to get a copy of the permit file at the town hall, as well from the health department to get any records for a well or septic. In some towns, you can also view any mapping information by googling. You can also find out information on the sellers by googling them or checking the CT court system site. 

I recommend that home buyers and sellers go to the municipal departments to see what kind of paperwork is on the records for the property that they wish to purchase or have owned for years which they are considering selling. Check with the respective departments and see if they are missing anything or information does not appear accurate.
