Blue Hills is for the most part quiet and residential. It's close to Copaco, which has a supermarket, some clothing shops, and plenty of food options. Ridgefield St, on the border of Keney Park, is historic and beautiful. Crime in general seems to be pretty low and seems nearly nonexistent the further away you get from Albany Avenue, and the schools safe. The nearest HPS high school is Weaver, but I think that's closing soon; the number of enrolled students has been steadily dropping. The elementary and middle schools are good. I don't have kids, so I can't really comment, but here's the site for Hartford Public Schools: Good luck. ... more

Outside of the rental websites, Craigslist and the local paper, your best bet is using a local REALTOR, particularly one who specializes in multi-family homes and rentals. They routinely work with investors so they always have their "ear to the ground" for new opportunities.

I'm currently carrying a couple of rental properties myself. One is a 3BR, 2.5BA house in the Mt. Carmel section of Hamden and the other is a 2BR, 2BA townhouse-style condo in the Westville section of New Haven. If you'd like more info, please email me at

Brittibob...You would have to define what "best" means to you. Lowest price? Maybe. Longest waiting time? Definitely! Some homes have taken 2 or more years in the recent past to make it from short sale window closed to on the market as a foreclosure. Things are speeding up now, but it can still take quite awhile. If it takes a long time and the market continues up, by the time it shows up on the MLS, the price may be up beyond where you might have gotten it in short sale or pre-foreclosure. So...without a crystal ball, we have no way of knowing what will be "best" for any particular house. Best of luck with whatever you do...Jim ... more

The only thing you can do is go to the very bottom of the page and contact Trulia's help section. Then the contact button and let them know.
It is fustrating to see these spam ads, but a huge tip off is them asking for you to wire money. Red flags should be going off in your head.
Also you can compare the ads against a reputable company website such as for example. There are many. Hope this helps......

If you are all set with the mortgage, then the next step is to put together a list of must haves in your house and start looking. Start with the internet to get an idea of styles of homes and what you can get for your money. Then when you have an idea of whatyou are looking for, it is time to hire a Realtor to help you.
This professional will help you not only find the perfect house but also help you navigate your way through the process of inspections, mortgage commitment and then finally the closing.

If you need help or would like more information, I would be happy to help you. Amanda

Hi Harry,

There are many ways you can prepare your home to have it sold quickly and at fair market value.

I would recommend to talk to a real estate professional to evaluate your home and give you a comparative market analysis to see what your home is worth.

You can also get your home ready by making sure it is "staged" for selling, meaning to make the home as presentable as possible. Examples would be: make sure all your light bulbs are working, de-clutter your home if necessary, remove items that can easily distract potential buyers from seeing the great features of the house. Open your blinds to bring light in.......

Your real estate agent will advise you of all those things that need to be done once he/she evaluates the home :)
