I don't have this answer. I am searching for Texas information. Is the seller required to provide smoke detectors prior to selling a home?

Sorry to see you frustrated. The average market time in Middletown CT right now is 86 days.
Unit sales are down 51.5% to 16.
Median price in January was $155,700. This is down 35.1% from $240,000 in January of 2014.
Inventory is up by 5.1%.

If you want to track this information you can do so at my company's website and if you need a good Realtor I would suggest contacting our Middletown office.

Best of luck.

Have you received sufficient consultation from a Realtor to determine if this is a good time to sell? Are you in an upside down situation where you owe more than your condo is worth? The last question obviously takes you right back to the short sale aspect. Difficult questions and answers to contend with, albeit necessary to get to the crux of your request. ... more

Advertising differs. If you are trying to rent on your own, I do suggest to advertise in your town's paper. Most of the time it is easier to advertise a rental that way because most renters search the papers. If you go through a Real Estate Professional - the difference is they advertise for you, screen a prospect tenant and do a credit check for you for a tenant who wants to rent your home. ... more
