I don't like to think that I have neglected buyers in these posts, but I want to set the record straight - you are important to me too!
A lot of times, a new buyer comes into my life with no experience with the process of buying a home. I love to answer questions, and discuss what this process entails, but I want to do it justice through a general, but concise blog post about some of the ins and the outs. Keep in mind, this is meant for all buyers, as it is a dissection of the process of purchasing a home. Also know that there are many other aspects to this process, so I will do my best to write additional posts in more detail in the future.

Most of the major websites where we (Realtors) market our listings has one major flaw - the inability to hear the true story of a home, before a buyer enters the home. Here is that true story of 48 William Street, from my perspective.
If you receive any marketing materials from me at all, you will understand why I am so excited to bring 48 William Street to the market. In this case, this quaint ranch is in a price point that seriously lacks quality options, and 48 William Street has it all!
When you drive up, the home immediately captures the eye, because of the mature, yet well-maintained trees in the front yard, lending a picturesque setting to this home. The driveway accommodates many cars, possibly upwards of 6, not including the 1-car attached garage. The yard appears flat, and there are additional plantings in the front of the home.
Before we go outside, we go back into the living room and check on the bedrooms, listed as 2, but possibly 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom is a laundry room, accessible for an older buyer or someone that does not like stairs. But, a savvy/visionary buyer can see this space as the third bedroom, if needed, or as an office/den. The other two bedrooms are about the same size, and also feature hardwood floors. They are all in great shape. The main full bathroom is updated, and needs no work. It is functional, and beautiful.
The potential in this home is endless. This home is perfectly suited for today’s buyer, but has enough space to go up, or build out, when the time comes. Even more immediate, is the possibility to build a staircase to connect the home to the basement, at a likely-reasonable cost. You can also convert that laundry room into a bedroom, and bring the laundry into the basement.
Whatever the case, this home won’t last long, given the quality, condition, and layout – but most importantly, the price point and the lot/location. Come check out 48 William Street in Norwalk today!

Most of the major websites where we (Realtors) market our listings has one major flaw - the inability to hear the true story of a home, before a buyer enters the home. Here is that true story of 128 Old Belden Hill Road, from my perspective.
In a market that is absent of homes in this sub-$400,000 price category, listing a gem like 128 Old Belden Hill Road in Norwalk hits the right notes with buyers. Despite only having 2 bedrooms, this ranch is still large - and there is no absence of character.
Upon entering the driveway, even though it is shared, there is still so much privacy. Suited for someone interested in the quiet of the woods, with close proximity to shopping/restaurants, you get the best of both worlds. I needn't mention that this is located on the Wilton border, making the neighborhood all the more desirable.
Entering through one doorway, leads to the kitchen, with eat-in-space for a table, and good size for future updates. It has plenty of windows all around, and plenty of cabinets and countertops. With views of the yard and nature, this might be where you spend most of your time - it certainly would be for me.
Back through the living room, and into the bedrooms, there are two large bedrooms, with a full bathroom in between, also easily accessible to guests. The rooms are consistent sizes, and both have hardwood floors which shine!
In essence, you get this beautiful, character-rich home, with plenty of space tucked on a lot near everything you might want or need. All of this, under $400,000 in Norwalk, and it is sure to go quickly!
