I live in a condo in Bristol with 3 small children and I am very happy with my location and neighborhood. My neighborhood is safe, but that is not true for all of Bristol. It varies greatly. I second the opinion to check with the Police and hang/ take walks in the neighborhood. Ask people walking their dogs. Their response will also give you an idea of the friendliness of your potential neighbors.... more
Hello Ricki_128: I always like Mack's answers, philosophical and at the same time practical. That said, I would still do a little analysis, as in how the re-sale market is for condos right now. That may help you make your decision because if you do not plan to stay in it very long, then you would want an exit strategy. Good luck in your quest and in your upcoming marriage, too!... more
If the house was listed with a realtor and you are being represented by a realtor, contact your realtor, put it together and have your realtor present the offer! If the owner has already accepted another purchase contract, consider making a back-up offer. Often buyers who do not understand the complexities of our financing environment are receiving pre-approval letters from lenders who end up turning them down for a variety of reasons---causing houses to come back on the market. If anyone wants a list of 5 easy steps to reducing stress in the mortgage process from a real estate agent with over 20 years of experience in Connecticut, send me a short email....... more

In my Buyer's instance, there have been occasions where they definitely needed me 110% in their corner negotiating aggressively on their behalf, something that the Listing Agent couldn't have done as a Dual Agent (meaning he would have been representing both the Bank and the Buyer).
If I can be of any further assistance to you I'm licensed in CT and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.... more
