It's truly difficult to give an estimate without seeing the home. I can see you're in Brookfield but without seeing what updates have been done, the curb appeal, location and other factors. I would be glad to speak with you and perform a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis. Please feel free to email me at I would love to see your home! ... more

Aravind, Ask your agent to provide you the history of sold properties in peak period in those area where you are looking the houses with master bedroom on 1st floor ( they can check only with the mas on 1st floor). If you find that those were like the other houses ( master bedroom on 2nd floor) then you are fine. Having master bed on first floor is good for the people with in-laws or comfortness of the people if someone dont want to go up and down for the bedrooms or if someone having problem in knees, walking prefer to 1st level master bedroom. Lot of Asian prefare having the mas bed on first floor because of their parents living with them.
I hope it will help you to make decision!

Hello Polly,
I looked up the property on Heatherwood in Brookfield on the MLS. The home is pending to close which means that it is no longer available. The listing agent is Patty McCarthy with William Raveis Real Estate. The office phone # is 203-794-9494.

Hope this is helpful.

Hi Lyn,

I found nothing in MLS and then I search on the field cards for Brookfield and I'm not finding a street named Powderhorn Hill.

What websites have you found it on?

Keep in mind that opinions are just that, what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another--much would depend on what unique and special mean to you--if you are not familiar with the area(s) do some of your own homework first, research areas online, visit neighborhoods more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals, look at whatever is important to you, etc., and then make a determination as to where your comfort level can best be reached--real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods. ... more

I don't see where 14 Rocky Road was listed for sale, and/or was sold after checking with the tax assessor's database. Not all foreclosures get listed for sale, and even after a home goes to foreclosure it can still take awhile to get listed. If you are looking for foreclosure properties, as many people are today, I can help you out either by searching for you, or you can go to my website at and search for foreclosures. Usually by the time they hit the market, they are priced well below value and sell quickly.

Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions; I can be reached by e-mail at or by cell phone at 203-733-8445.

I look forward to helping you with your search.

I have had experience making offers on Countrywide REOs. Each transaction is a case by case basis and my clients have chosen to stick to their guns as far as pricing. Frequently we've missed out in multiple offer situations. So no successful closed transaction on a Countrywide REO but the commonalities have been:

1) always need a preapproval from a countrywide loan officer
2) in a multiple offer situation you often need to sign a disclosure form saying you're aware you're in a bidding war
3) always have come back to each offer asking for highest & best
4) so far it's been min. 2 weeks response time, more if there's a holiday
5) they have always stuck very close to their list price and offered no counter (the ones I have worked on).

I don't know the list to sale ratio because for countrywide reo's, but based on those I've worked on it's above 95%. I enjoy working with both educated buyers and investors (my background is investment analysis). Link to profile is below if you need contact info. Please call or email for references.

Hi Emily,

New Fairfield and Brookfield are part of the towns that I specialize in. My website has links to these town sites, and school information for both areas can be accessed there as well. You might even find some other areas to consider. May I ask what attracted you to these towns specifically? Will you be relocating for a job or planning to commute to New York? If commuting is your option, both towns offer an easy commute to New York, and picturesque living on Candlewood Lake. I hope you are successful in finding the basic information that you're looking for. If I can be of assistance to you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me, and best of luck with your home search!

Kind Regards,
Melissa Peet
