You may also call me at (203) 269-4910 x 12 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

The weather is absolutely gorgeous right now, so we’re going to start seeing a ton of properties come on the market. You’re also going to see a lot of open houses, but you need to be careful when you view homes.

We have buyer brokerage here in the state of Connecticut, which means agents are allowed to represent buyers in real estate transactions. When you walk into an open house, you’re going to see a smiling real estate agent and you might assume that they’re there to help you. It’s important to understand that they do not have your best interest at heart; they represent the seller and do not owe you any fiduciary duty whatsoever.

"Our job is to advise you, negotiate on your behalf, and ensure you have a good experience."

When looking for homes, you need to take advantage of buyer brokerage and hire an agent to represent you and your interests. We have buyer agents on our team who specialize in the buying side of real estate and will walk you through the entire process. We also have a home buyer’s guide that explains in detail every single step of the buying process. We understand that it’s not our job to tell you which house is right for you; our job is to advise you, negotiate on your behalf, and make sure you have a good experience.

To learn more about how we can help you, or for real estate assistance of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are always available to help and would love to hear from you!

Today, I want to show you an example of a Fannie Mae HomePath property. We’re at a property in Wallingford that’s not even on the market right now.


My goal is to educate some of the home buyers out there, especially first-time home buyers, about all the options available to them in our marketplace. There are a lot of great deals out there, but the most important thing to do is work with a competent real estate broker, someone who is up on the market and knows what’s going on.

"Some HomePath homes are priced as much as 35% below market value!"



HomePath properties are the kind of homes that we can share with our buyers who have have been searching for a home for months. If you’re looking for an affordable home and you don’t mind doing a little bit of work -- like painting, flooring, and remodeling -- you’re going to be able to purchase a home that is priced as much as 35% below market value!


If you’re looking for a good deal, or if you’re a first-time buyer, I urge you not to overlook some of the HomePath properties available in our marketplace. The best part about these homes is that they are only available to owner-occupants, so you won’t have to compete with investors looking to flip them.

If you have any questions about HomePath properties, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re always available to help you with your real estate needs, and we would love to hear from you!

Don’t Miss out on This Waterfront Property in Madison


Looking to improve your real estate career? I'm here to help you make a smart decision when it comes to growing your business, improving your bottom line, and choosing a place to work in real estate sales. If you'd like to learn more about working with Carbutti & Co. Realtors, contact me at (203) 269-4910 or Jonathan@Carbutti.com.

We have a wonderful home available just outside of Madison, and it’s located on 2.6 acres of pristine marshland right next to the ocean. There is a hundred-foot private dock where you could park a 30-foot yacht or other boats.

The home fits in very well with the natural setting, and features a modern plan that is very open. There are lots of glass windows on the home as well, so it feels like you’re in constant contact with the elements. There is a main house that is 1,200 sq. ft. and it is compact yet cozy. It’s very similar to what you would find in a beach home. 




There is also a small 1-bedroom guest house that could also be used as an office or an artist’s retreat. It could be converted into many different things.

It’s not uncommon to see deer, foxes, and other wildlife roaming around this property. This is amazing, considering that the home is only minutes from downtown Madison.

Please let us know if you would like to see 11 Salt Meadow Lane.

Other features include:

  • 3 bedrooms, 3 baths
  • 1,282 sq. ft.
  • Set on a 2.68 acre lot
  • Built in 1980
  • Private drive with waterfront access

We look forward to hearing from you, we think this property will be going fast!

There Is a Better Way to Sell



There are many great New Haven County area homes for sale. Click here to perform a full home search, or if you're thinking of selling your home, click here for a FREE Home Price Evaluation so you know what buyers will pay for your home in today's market. You may also call me at (203) 269-4910 x 12 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

Today’s post is geared more towards sellers, specifically sellers who have been on the market with little to no activity or offers and are wondering if there is a better way to sell your home.

At the end of the day, experience and reference points matter. We just had a situation where we had a seller who was listed with another agency, and believe the best offer she could possibly get was $270,000 and was ready to accept it. We spoke to this seller and explained to her that her home wasn’t being properly marketed, and we could get her an even better offer. Within 2.5 weeks, we had sold the home for $290,000.

 
The way we positioned and marketed that home made the difference in the sale. If you are thinking about selling your home now, or 6 months from now, we want to speak with you. Give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll get down there and take a look at your home and give you a professional estimate of what you could expect to sell your home for. We look forward to hearing from you!

Although 2015 was a fantastic year, today, we have a few predictions about the market this year.

2016 will be a very busy year for the home buying and selling season. Interest rates are supposed to go up this year, and that increase will really drive the volume in the real estate market, as well as home values. 


Many people think that when interest rates go up, home prices come down. Actually, the opposite is true. As interest rates rise, so will home prices. If you've been thinking about buying, now is the time to get into the marketplace before rates and prices increase!



Let's consider the following question: What real estate topics are you interested in? This year, my team and I want to focus on providing valuable information to our loyal clients. Simply reply to this email with any questions you want answered -- we have your back!  

Finally, I want to thank you all on behalf of my team for your referrals in 2015. It was a record-breaking year for referrals, and we are truly grateful to all of you. 


As always, if you have any questions, give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you.

“To sell your home on time for the most money, you need a sharp agent with a marketing strategy that creates the most demand,” Corcoran said. “Bottom line, you need a partner willing to put their own money on the line for you …. Jonathan Carbutti knows how to attract the right kind of buyers and create so much demand that if your home doesn’t sell at a price and deadline you agree to, Jonathan will buy it!
