2nd step shoud be choosing a competent and local Realtor that knows Norwalk to work with.
Ask friends and family for referrals. You should interview both before choosing one.
Did I mention that I was a competent and local Realtor?
Flax Hill is a main road that runs from the end of Darien through to South Norwalk.
There is a diversity in the style of homes, single family and multi-family as well as condos on Flax Hill Rd.
The other above mentioned streets are mostly single family homes with a variety of architectural styles.
With respect to short sales we are also finding motivated sellers who are not necessarily underwater with their mortgages, but are aware of the short sale effect on their properties. This helps the buyer negotiate a better price as a result of the owners wanting to sell. With interest rates still at a historical low, there are exceptional deals out there. You just need to have a Realtor who is looking out for your best interests!
Good luck in your search.

I would be happy to register you on the home finding service from the local MLS called "Listingbook" that covers Norwalk so that you could see all the real estate activity that agents are able to.
There is no cost to register and use the service. My clients really like all the features which include: new listings, the property's history, price changes, and Open House times.
Please, feel free to contact me with your e-mail address so that I can set you up on the system.
