“Proper Planning is Everything” The insurance agent was having quite an easy time selling Mrs. Heller insurance on her husband's life. In fact he thought it was too easy.When all the details were finalized Mrs. Heller casually asked, "Now if my husband should die tomorrow what would I get?""That would depend entirely," the insurance man replied, "on how the evidence is presented to the jury."

Prospect  CT First Quarter 2021 Real Estate Market AnalysisThe year 2020 was an unusual year for so many reasons.  With the pronouncement of the pandemic back in mid February of the year, the world watched in disbelief as the virus spread at an incredibly fast pace and affected all ages all over the  world.In the world of real estate, the exuberance of the business that had started in 2019 started to slow as people became wary of venturing into homes not knowing who was there or their state of health. Likewise, sellers were wary of having people come into their homes and possibly bringing in a bacterial issue that would infect their families.For the year 2020, the market sales or absorption rate was almost 10 sales per month, with an average sales value of $272,069 and average days on m...

“Yes, We Can Do Your Mortgage!?Hi Joe, Steve XXXXXXXX recommended me to you saying you are the best in CT, haha. Before I go through the process of applying and providing documents for everything, may I ask a question, as I do not want to waste your time as I assume my question will be a "no, you can’t do that" as I seem to keep finding out... But here goes... I got a quote from Steve to build a garage of my dreams for my business for 150k.. I bought my house back in 2013 for roughly 160k... and I owe approx. 126k left, my house is worth 208k as of this year...... so there is not much equity I can pull from the house... maybe 30-40k?? if that.....so I know I cannot use equity to build what I need. My question is this... is there ANYWAY SOMEHOW SOMEWAY.... that I can refinance my current...

Real estate  in Danbury,CT is not just purchases and listings.  As  exprienced real estate professional,  I also have helped a lot of clients lease and secure rental properties.  How is this different?Renting is a less of a renting term commitment. It allows flexibility for the tenant. It can also be helpful if you are coming into the area and want time to shop around. It also requires less money up front. Tenants can also benefit as there may be less competition to rent than to purchase. Renting for landlords can be used for a long-wealth wealth building strategy.  Sometimes landlords also might not have enough time to go from listed to closing, even in today's active resale market. Other landlord clients might not also like the market price of the home. Other landlords just like the i...

“Local Bank Can’t do Our Mortgage” Mr. Petrowsky, Your name was given to me by a real estate agent. I have a contract for the purchase of an oceanfront home and have been denied by a local bank. They indicated that they reached the 7% limit, any idea what the hell that mean? The purchase price for the property $1,625,000 and we are putting 50% down, can you help us? By the way the list agent gave my agent your information. You apparently did a mortgage right up the street that the agent was also involved. In advance, thank you, Jerry We will be hearing more of these type of stories from lenders when it comes to second homes and investment properties.  This 7% rule that was mentioned is specific to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. As thing stand right now, these two want to limit their exposu...

“An FHA 203K Can be a Great Solution!” Mr. Petrowsky,Your name was given to me by a Realtor. I have been pre-qualified by my bank for an FHA mortgage, but they don’t do 203K renovation loans. The Realtor indicated you do them all the time, is that the case?I was just wondering, because most houses are over 200K with at 5 to 6k on taxes.  So, I was thinking I have a 203K maybe I can buy something less expense then fixed it up. At your earliest convenience, communicate back so that we can discuss further. As competitive as the real estate market is these day, looking at homes that need repairs and renovations may be a great solution. Sure, everyone want to purchase the perfect home, but with renovation you can make that perfect home.

A Feeder For Two PleaseThis past week as I was looking out the window I saw a very large female cardinal picking at seeds in the feeder. I saw a bit of movement from the other side and went to a different window to get a peek. Could it just be that papa knows to give space to an irritable mother to be and decided to just stay out of the way?A Feeder For Two Please

“Patience is a Requirement” Hi Joe,Thank you for being so patient with the both of us and excuse us for emailing you so much while we look for a home. Since Terry and I are both in a situation where we don’t really have to leave my parents’ home immediately, I do have the option of working on both of our credit scores to something higher where the goal is to possibly qualify back into that conventional loan?I want the best for my family and I don’t want to keep rushing and feeling defeated every time we place an offer on a home that we feel is within our budget BUT a fight for a home with the rest of the world too. I want to gain more confidence with my credit score and know that the next home I buy, I can truly afford it because both my husband will have a great credit score and full p...
