The best tip I can suggest is to hire the best agent out there. What we do looks easy to many, but believe me there is more to getting top dollar in the least amount of time, staying safe, legal and on track than most people can handle on their own.
When you hire a great agent, you really hire all the agents in your area. Your agent represents you, puts your needs first and will market the property to all the buyers and agents out there. The other agents will work for their clients, so be careful what you tell them. A good agent is a trained listener and will use whatever you tell them against you.
This is a huge transaction and a great agent brings value which will exceed their commission. A bad agent, or none at all will cost you more than just a commission.

Though, in my experience, Branford is far enough east that the water quality is decent, I think that question may be better asked of the CT department of environmental protection or the NY Department of Environmental Conservation, they should have some real data to base their answer upon. ... more

You can take the Shore Line East train from Branford and change for the Metro North in New Haven. Benefit: parking is free and easier in Branford, but you have the cost of the train (still cheeper then parking fee in New Haven). If you need flexibility regrding time, you can drive into New Haven and park in the garage next to the train station. I live on the Shoreline and often take the Shore Line train:

see for more details.

PS the schools are excellent in Branford.

The answer should be stipulated in the agreement that you signed.
If there's an issue, you should contact the broker or consult an attorney.

Anna M Brocco answered:
If you are referring to a RealtyTrac ad--keep in mind that RealtyTrac's information may not always accurate and oftentimes misleading--you could be looking at a lis pendens property--notice of default--or some kind of filing fee, etc., some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be, if the default is satisfied by the owner. If you are interested in foreclosures, work with an agent--he/she will have access to reliable information--also don't overlook traditional sales as some may turn out to be a much better bargain than some of the foreclosure properties ... more

Unless you were planning to use it for storage or convert it into living space, in my opinion you really don't need a basement.

To add a basement you would have to have the house lifted, which would not only be very expensive but also tricky because the slab depends on the earth beneath it for support. Plus you would have to deal with the house resettling which could mean cracked walls, etc.

Could you add on to the home instead?
