Barkhanstec is not correct. The school in Falls Village is Lee H. Kellogg School. It is a K-8 school, which is run by a local school board. We have a regional high school, Housatonic Valley Regional which is located in our town also. ... more

Sorry this home is not for sale, it is just listed as an existing public record. when it was last sold...
If you are interested in the purchase of a property, you need to connect with a buyers Agent, a Realtor who likes and works with Buyers, so many advantages for you the buyer, especially that all that is
required from you is your loyalty and commitment to just that one Buyers Agent, who will protect your
interests and guide you with experience and market expertise through the entire buying process to lead
to a smooth and successful closing, including finding you the right property, they are paid for listings on the multiple listing service by other brokerages at the closing table out of the proceeds of the seller's side.
If you need a recommendation for a good local Realtor in the Watertown CT area let me know and I gladly send a good one your way.
Good Luck to you

Shirley Zimmerman answered:
Hi! I'm so glad that you asked that question. As mentioned previously, the fee for that condo is $277 a month. This is one of the few questions you should be discussing with your agent. Other questions should be how many of the condos are rented? Is it approved for HUD financing? Your agent should be able to work with you, your bank, and the property manager of the condo to answer all of your questions so that your purchase goes smoothly from offer to closing. ... more

Tom Lynch answered:

I show and sell properties in both towns, and both are VERY desirable towns. The better choice is of course subjective... which property "feels" right to YOU. But, there are practical issues to consider for re-sale. Properties on busy roads tend to take longer to sell. Privacy is scarce and desirable for re-sale. You almost can't go wrong in this market... a $500,000 property in either town is likely to be very attractive and only go up in value. A good buyer's agent can provide more advice on the subject of investment potential/re-sale.

Good luck in your decision!

Have you seen the taxes? That scared me away! Hope it all works out for you. It's a beautiful neighborhood, but taxes are insane!

Gerard Dunn answered:
Foreclosure is the most likely answer. In many jurisdictions when the mortgage holder bids on the home - no money actually changes hands. They are bidding on a property secured by a loan that they made.

$1 is listed as "Consideration" in a sale for legal purposes.

Ray Poppe answered:
It is a proven fact throughout the US that whenever Interstates or Highways are increased in size that they soon (meaning within 5 yrs) become full of traffic again. With this in mind the extension of Rte 7 should eventually have an effect on the value of Real Estate in NM. It just won't happen over night. I beleive that NM is a great town to buy a home at the present time. I always suggest NM to my buyers since I think they will get the most return on their investment if they are willing to wait a while. ... more
