    If you feel that you can not afford a home now, but are renting you may really be missing the boat. There are plenty of opportunities and types of mortgages that may fit your budget, in fact it may be cheaper to buy than to rent! CHFA mortgages are bouncing around 4.2% with as little as 3.5% down payment. Another words with $6300 down you would be able to purchase a $180000 home, if you met other qualifications related to the loan, such as income levels,debt and credit history.

  • Pricing a Home to sell in West Haven, CT

    When your agent puts your home on the market, how long are willing to wait before it sells. (If it sells!) Most action comes within the first two weeks when a house goes on the market. But you do not want to give it away, so where should your selling price be?
    Much research should go into this question, such as the current market conditions in your area, what homes have  sold for recently and what homes have been on for a long time. What is your competition? Information that a real estate agent has at their fingertips. Just pricing your house according to what you wish to get for it might be a costly mistake. You may price it too high and be stuck with it going"stale" when you have to come down later on or you may go too low , thereby short changing yourself on extra profit.
    Talk to a real estate agent to get the right price.
     In West Haven and surrounding areas I will give a free estimate so that you will get full market value for your home.
