There are many fantastic towns with great schools and top notch special needs departments. I think the first thing you want to do is look at school ratings, school test scores . Give them a call and set appointments to go speak with the counselors . I service the following towns: Weston, Wilton, Westport, Ridgefield, Norwalk , Fairfield - all these are fantastic places to live in and you won't be dissappointed . ... more

The commute should be about 30 minutes depending where you live in Weston. You'll drop down to the Merritt and take that to Stamford. I've sold houses in Redding etc. to folks who work in Stamford but love living in the country.

Regina, This is tough and depends on the State you live in. The best bet is to talk about pricing your home for a quick sale and ask the seller if they would consider a contract if you included an attractive bump clause(ability to take another offer should your home not sell in time). This would ensure you could get your deposit back should you not sell your home in time and give you the opportunity to take advantage of the perfect home. You may want to contact your Realtor for the specifics in your area. ... more

Presumably you have looked at this home with a real estate agent who should be able to answer these questions for you. I would have to know the exact address to comment in particular ,but a general response would be to first of all find out why the taxes are that high. Does this property have a lot of land? It doesn't really make sense to me and this is one of my markets --unfortunately, if you are represented, I really cannot interfere with that relationship. If you are not exclusively represented, please contact me at
Thank you.

Hi Regina,
The best thing to do if you want to do minimal work is paint and clear out the clutter, both inside and out.
If you are honest in the listing that the property needs some updates, there are many people that would be interested in a home that needs a little work.
Paint will make the home look clean and fresh, even if some things need updates. And really clean out the clutter, a good rule of thumb is pack up 1/3 of your things. It will help people to see the potential.
Also, outside (it is colder now, but still a good idea) you should clear overgrown and dead landscaping. It will open up the yard.
If you would like any other suggestions, please contact me at 803-1988.
