Connecticut Homeowners Facing Possible Foreclosure – If It Sounds Too Good to be True…
It totally is. Always. And this doesn’t just go for Connecticut homeowners who may be facing foreclosure or a short sale. This pertains to all things. We do not want to see you taken advantage of – especially if you are in a difficult situation with your home. Honestly, you’re never going to get a car (that runs and has a radio) on Craigslist for 100 bucks, and if someone claims they can get you out of foreclosure fast and easy…they are lying and you need to be very careful.

Promising Numbers for Connecticut Real Estate Market
Things are far from perfect. Just check out Connecticut’s 7%+ unemployment rate. But there is a bit of sunshine creeping through the proverbial clouds…and it’s not just because Spring is here! For instance, Storrs area pending home sales were up for the second straight month. The greater Hartford area home sales were up 21.66% (!!!) compared to 15 percent in the Midwest and 4.4 percent in the Southern states. Only the Western region saw a decline. Bummer for home sellers in the western region of the country, I know – but I’ve got my fingers crossed for you California!
Is This the Time to Buy?
In a recent online article, Marketwatch writes that home prices rose for the first time this year. While this is good news for home sellers, it may mark the beginning of the shift we’ve been watching for. Now, each region is of course a different animal than the rest of the nation, and real estate in Connecticut is no exception, but we’ll get into that some other time.
