My Life as a Realtor – Day 42

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 42:

Kids started school today – Yippee!  I was so excited for them, I couldn’t get to sleep last night – you’d think it was my first day back to school!

Phone calls – e-mails and texting through-out the day.  What’s great is I could do all of this anywhere – anytime!  Some of my clients are night owls – just like me – so getting a message from them at midnight, or later, doesn’t faze me a bit.  Other Realtors just don’t understand why I never turn my phone off – NEVER! I say – since it would drive me crazy wondering if I have a message – one that usually only takes a few minutes of my time and makes both me and my client happy.  So, turn OFF my phone – NEVER!!

Buying a Home in New Fairfield, CT

If your looking to buy a home in New Fairfield, CT – WONDERFUL!  My family and I moved here from Harrison, NY about 4-1/2 years ago and we LOVE it!

New Fairfield borders Brewster, NY – making an easy commute to work for both myself to Century 21 V.J.F. Realty which is located right in Brewster – and my husband who commutes via I-684 to NYC.

Why New Fairfield, CT

  • Accessibility to I-84 and I-684since we do have to work!
  • Great Schoolsmoved here with 5 kids and schools were very important to me.  Don’t have school age kids?  Please keep in mind that purchasing a home which a good school system is great for resale purposes!
  • Low Taxeswe have a comfortably spacious home on 2.1 acres – and pay less taxes than some homes that are 1/4 the size in my neighboring towns of NY.
  • Lot’s of choices for shopping in neighboring Danbury, CT including the Danbury Fair Mall With a large family, I spend lots of $$ in groceries, clothing and other necessities – having choices and paying low taxes on items that are taxable is great! 
  • Candlewood Lake – BEAUTIFUL!!!  60 + miles of shoreline – motorboats are allowed and if you don’t own one, no problem since you can always rent one!
  • Fresh air and scenic viewsYou can go hiking in Pootatuck State Forest or visit the state park of Squantz Pond – or just open your window and BREATHE!
  • Great for a first time home buyer and/or luxury buyerThere are 2 bedroom homes in the $200,000 price range, perfect for a first time home buyer – or large homes, some in private Candlewood Lake communities, for up to a few mil for the luxury buyer.
  • Lots of Wildlife – all I have to do is sit on my deck which faces the woods in my back yard.  There we will see families of deer, foxes, wild turkeys, coyotes – and many have seen bobcat and bear – these last 2, I honestly hope to NEVER see!

In the center of town you’ll find everything from Shaw’s Supermarket or for fresh meats and an awesome Deli, there is the New Fairfield Food Market. For a bite to eat there is Bruno’s Pizza, Biscotti’s, Portofino’s the local diner,  Chinese take out and other eateries. There is also Gas stations and repair shops, Physicians and Dentists, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, Hair and Nail salons, our local Hardware store, Banks, Dry Cleaners, Video store – and of course our New Fairfield Post Office, Town Hall and Library.  A small town life with all life’s necessities!

I plan on living here until I’m old and gray… sadly, both have already started!

Going to School in New Fairfield, Connecticut

blog-030

As Spring is blooming and buzzing all around us, more and more people are out shopping for a Home.

One very important question that every buyer should ask their Realtor is for a School Report.  Whether you have children or not, buying in an area with a good school system is also important for re-sale purposes.  Since you may want to sell your home in a few years to buyers that are interested in the school’s. 

                                                          

To learn about New Fairfield School’s, <CLICK> or New Fairfield High School.

Most school reports can be e-mailed to you – and most schools have their own website.  Need assistance?  I’ll be happy to help. Or – HomeFair.com has free school reports on line.
