Hi Jackie,

There are several nice areas in Bethel that may be of interest to you. Gabriella Court is Bethel's Newest Luxurious Subdivision and it's in a superb location. Starr Lane is also very nice. Have you considered Newtown at all? There are several areas of new construction there, as well. Please contact me if you would like to discuss the many opportunities available. My name is Diane and you can reach me at 203-942-8099 ... more

You're attempting to buy a home that is listed on the MLS by a real estate agent. Knowing that, I assume you also have a real estate agent representing you?
You need to discuss this with YOUR agent and/or your attorney. This is what you hired them for.

For any of us to tell you what to do would be interfering with your agent's agency relationship.

Confused with your question. Do you mean where are the new construction homes?

Have your buyers agent assist you

I always find it funny how people come up with answers to this issue. I'm a firm believer in just leaving the oil in whatever amount there is in the tank. Funny how the following is ignored:

1. Water in the hot water heater/furnace, it's gone through the meter, should that be reimbursed? Final water read is usually several days prior to closing, has the seller recieved benefit for that unimpeded use?

2. Gas in the gas lines, gone through a meter, should that be reimbursed also?

3. Pro-rate a security/alarm system contract?

I think it's one of those situations that is nit-pickey. What about the difference in oil tank levels between offer to purchase/purchase & sales contract & closing? How to account for sludge in tank? What if the buye tells the seller to take the oil with them, oil removal is usually more expensive than delivery?

Sorry for posting this question twice, but I'm trying to ask about a Bethel VT property, not a Bethel CT property and the system keeps on defaulting to CT.

Hi Cheryl,

Bethel, Vermont. For some reason Trulia decided to post this question in Connecticut!

Yeah - If its not 'in contract' that is an actual signed contract by both parties. That said, in 15 years I have only heard of buyer and seller agreeing to a price and seller backing out. I read about a guy in Ridgefield, CT - I think the house was on Highview, but am not sure. I think it has since been sold. The seller(s) twice agreed with buyer on a price and twice asked for a higher price, but that was before contract. Still I can't imagine any seller doing this in this market. Though in 15 years of transactional real estate I could never imagine such behaviour regardless. ... more
