Purchasing a house is not an easy task. There will be lots of problem that you need to cope up to buy a good house. For first time buyer, it is essential to remember certain factors. So, here are the points that you should follow before the purchase of the house.
1. Can you afford the house? Do you have enough money to purchase the house? Ask these questions to yourself and then take the step. It will give you satisfaction on the right choice of the house. What have you decided to do next?
2. If you desire buying a house in Connecticut, you should know about the selling price in that particular area. It saves you from fraud service and there is no looking back if everything goes well.
3. Determine the settlement cost of the house. It will assure you about the actual price of the house. You need to focus on tax rate, registration charge, and many other charges.
4. Do not only trust on the pictures of the house. You should go that place and see the house on your own eyes. It will double assure you about the property. Check the house properly and then take decision on investment.
5. Before buying a house in Connecticut, you should talk with real estate agents. They can guide you in all possible manners. You will get all genuine information from them. They are always here to guide you on the best deal of the house.

Call Eric Schuell or Camille of Re/Max in Milford. They are great agents! Let them know that I referred you. A Realtor referring another Realtor is a rare thing. I think that highly of them both. Thanks ... more

Hi Sherry,
Why are you waiting for an Open House? Are you a ready, willing, and able buyer or just looking? If you are ready to purchase, you should hire a REALTOR to represent you in your transaction, and get in there if you are interested. This time of year its almost rediculous to hold an Open House, people are busy with the holidays, and the serious buyers are working with a REALTOR looking at homes for sale. Besides, the listing agent has full fiduciary responsibility to the seller and has no loyalty to an unrepresented buyer, or someone who shows up at an Open House. The listing agent cannot represent you AND the seller fairly. I hear this kind of thing from buyers all the time, and it makes me laugh when a buyer says that they don't want to pay someone to take them to homes for sale that they can find online. While it is true that the information is out there, it's not just about having the key to open the door. If you would like more information, contact me. By the way, the cost to the buyer to hire an agent is $0.00. Hope to hear from you, if not, best of luck.... ... more

I am not in real estate thus this is not a sales pitch.
I moved from from the Gould Manor area of Fairfield approx. 30 years ago and have not regreted it for one minute. I live in the Woodmont area of Milford two blocks from beautiful Anchor Beach. Milford's Schools are great especially East Shore Middle where teachers actually care for their students.
Depending on your budget and your Family situation start your search for homes in Woodmont, you can't go wrong.
Be well.

Financing may be tough for a condo complex that has not been completed yet, but Total Mortgage is a national lender, who happens to be right here in Milford. We have access to a wide variety of lending partners, so we may be able to help you get financing on a unit if you choose to purchase one.

If you're a first-time homebuyer, you're also eligible for up to $8,000 in a federal tax credit. Current mortgage rates are still historically low, so now's the time to buy. I hope this information helps.

Check out our web site and give us a call. One of our licensed mortgage professionals would be happy to answer any of your questions.

Best of luck!
