Here are the listings that match the search criteria we designed together:

I seek important, public information to share with my clients that I cite from a variety of professional news services, supporting my seventeen years of expertise on market value and conditions. Real estate markets are traditionally defined as seasonal for those actively in the market, and annual for non-participants. Markets are also defined by location, price and property style.
From 1991 to 1997 we experienced a stabilizing, or slack market where values were consistent and maintained. From 1998 through 2002 we experienced an appreciating sellers’ market. From 2002 to 2006 CT experienced a rapidly appreciating sellers’ market fueled by irrational exuberance, the Collateral Damage of Secured lending, and Dutch Tulip conditions, contributing to the financial market failures on 2008.
From 2007 to 2009 we experienced a topping and declining market. From 2010 through 2012 we experienced a steady decline and early formation of a buyers’ market as market highs of 2007 began to be resolved.
In 2013 we experienced a stable to appreciating market with rapid recovery or geographic bubbles, depending the interpretation of local, market specific data sets. Many people bought below the all time high of 2007 anticipating future market highs would surpass 2007. Southern Connecticut has seen scattered small value increases in through 1Q2015. In June 2015 CT was one of 5 states that saw depreciation of House Price Values. This is very interesting when you consider the rise in consumer price indices, rental costs and lower mortgage costs, making a property today similar in monthly cost to 2003 when 30 year mortgage rates were over 5%. In 2Q2016 all Connecticut metros were ranked in the bottom 5% nationally for under appreciation.
I know you are weighing many of factors at this time including your long term goals, future plans, return on investment and the future direction of property values in Connecticut. In the long term price will rise because of inflation, a superior quality of life in Connecticut, preferable climate, shorelines and natural resources, leveraged values, higher taxes in New York and New Jersey, and the demand for quality New England communities.
If you have questions about this real estate market and your options I look forward to talking or meeting soon. I continue to specialize in Greater New Haven residential and investment properties. I am not the person who calls all the time to sell you a house, I am the person who shares information with you, explores your concerns and walks with you, as a partner and confidant, toward your goal.
You should understand the different roles real estate agents play, and whom they represent. Connecticut enacted Buyer Agency law in 1997 to protect purchasers of real property. This law change attracted me to the profession. There is no cost to you for me to be your Licensed Buyer Agent as my fee is paid by the seller.
I expect that you are not working with any other buyer agents at the same time, and that you acknowledge our agreement to work together. You will be pre-approved for a mortgage to fully understand the options available to you. Pre-approval is free, and easy to for a qualified person to complete.
