It depends on the time of year. The Spring and Summer markets are the most active months and rentals can go quite quickly. Other factors: Is it an annual rental? Furnished or unfurnished? North or south end of town? Does it have AC? Beach rights? ... more

The average North Branford residential listing price of $316000 has been on market an average of 97 days. But real estate is not average; your property is unique and only comparable to other similar properties. Your day on market depends on the marketing and asking price. Don't make a mistake believing the agent who says your house will sell for more than other ones like it, s/he will soon be asking for a reduction when nobody comes to look.

You will need to give me an address if you are referring to a particular home...

I would be happy to answer your question once you do, or you can go to

Thanks, and let me know if you would like to speak with me about how I can help make your next move as sucessful and stress free as possible.

Milford is a very diverse town. You have not provided enough information, like address, listing number, single family , etc. Being that you have asked this question I would recommend you hire a REALTOR, to show you properties that will fit your budget, and needs. It does not cost you anything. Probably not what you want to hear, but they are the professionals and know each area of Milford and the price point.
If you need a referral let me know, my team in Milford can help you in your search.

Hi Keith,
I can only respond for my area, Greater Danbury, but so far this year there were 534 sales of single family homes and condos, of which 19.7% were distressed. 15.2% were bank foreclosures, and 4.5% were "short sales". I know that many people have been frustrated with short sales for the past two years, however, they are getting easier and they are also closing much faster.

It is really important that homeowners in difficult financial straits be aware of this, and also the CT State foreclosure mediation program. Here is a blog post about it for further details.

It is unclear when the market will hit bottom, when it will turn, and how long it will take to reach current values when it does. If you wait 4-7 years, your home may still be worth the same amount it is worth today, and you will have lost the use of the money raised from the sale of the home. It also prolongs your financial involvement with your ex-spouse. If you need to sell your home due to an upcoming divorce, I'd suggest getting it listed for sale as soon as possible, before the spring market rush.

Depending on the location of your home, it may be more desirable to hold onto the property and rent it. There are few 4-bedroom homes for rent in Milford, and a rental of this size could command a good amount of money. This would also allow you time to settle up your estate. But if you and your ex are ready to sell, I would not hesitate to put your home on the market. Many things can happen in 4-7 years time, and you can only accurately predict what a home is worth today.

Please contact me with any other questions. I'm a full time agent on the CT Shoreline and have experience with estate & forced sales.

Pmk answered:
As both a homeowner and a lawyer, I wouldn't recommend that you buy a home for just 2 years. If you add up the closing costs for a buy and a sell, plus homeowner's insurance, taxes (they're high) and no guarantee that there will be much appreciation, you're better off renting. Rentals are fairly reasonable and you'll have your choice of neighborhoods.

It's hard to manage a rental from a distance and is not recommended.

Jack Mulrooney answered:
Hi Woodbridge, Unfortunately, it is likely your house has gone down in value in a big way. Maybe as much as 30%.

Facts such as condition and curb appeal are major factors that can effect the overall value. Also, many of the homes on the market today are not up to snuff with competition in surrounding areas. When buyers looked in specific towns Woodbridge had special things to offer. Now with new buyers willing to commute a little and shop a lot, Woodbridge has to get more competitive with surrounding towns.

Without knowing your specific house, I can say that in Woodbridge, most homes would do better with targeted improvements and upgrades to match what is selling in the market.

Please feel free to ask more specific questions.

Branford is a smaller area than East Haven and is further from New Haven. You will find the prices of homes along the shoreline going east will also start to be in a higher price range. There are homes in that price range of $100K to $250K but there will be fewer.
