The train in Danbury goes to Grand Central & you'd have to take the subway back to the BX from there.

Jacob's Lane and Country Way have a high concentration of higher end properties, most under a million, and easily double or triple that in other nice towns.

Hello Koggy,
So far this year in Bethel, the average list price for a single-family home is $378,876 and the average sold price is $308,459 representing a difference of around 18%. Please, do keep in mind that some properties are priced more realistically than others and some may have taken price reductions along the way.

Hope this is helpful.

Hello Bethel Home Buyer,
I find it interesting that the bank has changed hands and now wants to renegotiate your offer after it was accepted. Perhaps the owners of the home had accepted your offer and then it took the bank a year to look at your offer and have now countered. Do keep in mind that the bank has the final say on the sales price; not the owners.

Yes, you can counter offer what the bank is asking but keep in mind that the bank is also looking at comparable recent sales in the nieghborhood. I don't know what amount you had originally offered but I do hope that you have an experienced agent to assist you through the short sale process as it does require patience and perseverance on your part.

Good luck on your offer!

You need to confer with your buyers agent. Unless all executed contracts are reviewed by an agent or attorney difficult to state.

I can certainly understand your point regarding "as is" .

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.

Dan Ross answered:
Being from the next town is not a problem. Without looking at you listing I can't say for sure, but the 2 most common reasons for lack of activity are insufficient exposure to the correct target market, and the price. Did the agents show you all of the comps for the recent sales in your neighborhood? The market activity has been increasing recently, so if you aren't getting any activity then I would review the price. If is in line, the ask how and where it is being advertised. ... more
