Lake Waramaug in Litchfield County, homes for sale

Lake WaramaugI love Lake Waramaug at any time of  year. The graceful homes hark back to an earlier time. Lovely Victorians, Adarondiack style homes with stone fireplaces and wood paneling, more traditional Colonials and Cape Cod style shingle homes enhance the scenery.  Many homes date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and have been lovingly restored and renovated over time with careful consideration of the character of Lake Waramaug.  During any season it is a pleasant drive, but with summer nipping at our heels the docks are showing promises of lazy summer days ahead on Lake Waramaug. A 90 minute trip from New York City makes Lake Waramaug a favorite retreat for those seeking the perfect country getaway. There are also many who have chosen to make Lake Waramaug their full time home.

Although Lake Waramaug is the second largest natural lake in Connecticut, you wouldn’t know it to drive by. The lake is shared by Washington (the Village of New Preston), Kent and Warren. Washington and Warren do have their own beaches for the town residents (yearly fees apply, passes available at the town halls). There is also Lake Waramaug State Park tucked away on Lake Waramaug Rd which I have spent many a summer day at. The lake and surrounding area provides people with plenty of hiking, walking, biking, fishing, swimming, rowing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and boating opportunities. There is a public boat launch at Lake Waramaug, however in order to preserve the integerity of the lake it has restrictions.Here are a few.

  • Public motorboat access to Lake Waramaug is only at the Town of Washington Boat Ramp, located just north of the Washington Town Beach.
  • There is a maximum of 20 non-resident motorboats allowed on Lake Waramaug, which is made of of 13 campers from Lake Waramaug State Park and 7 day boaters.
  • NO state boat launch will be built at Lake Waramaug per an agreement signed in 2004 between the towns and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
  • You can read more about the rules and regulations concerning boating at Lake Waramaug here at the Lake Waramaug Associaton Website

Washington__20100623_Boulders-117What is that bubbling of the water at Lake Waramaug? Children call it “monster water”, and are convinced there is a monster or two living at the bottom of Lake Waramug. You really can’t blame them for thinking so. Sadly, it is not from the Lake Waramaug cousin of the Lochness Monster, (although I am sure many a parent has been sorely tempted to tell them so). They are two Layer Aeration Systems put in to place to clean up the waters of Lake Waramaug. The residents of Lake Waramaug formed the Lake Waramaug Task Force and have been responsible for ground breaking ideas in preserving the health of Lake Waramaug and provide a model for others who wish to save their own lakes.

If you are interested, The Lake Waramaug Task Force has put out an awesome video (a bit long at 20 minutes) with an introduction to the history of Lake Waramaug followed by the information as to why the task force was formed and how they have been at the forefront of new ideas and innovations that continue to preserve Lake Waramaug for future generations to enjoy. Click here for the Vimeo Video, Saving Lake Waramaug. I found it fascinating and it gave me such respect for those residents who have given and continue to give of their time to preserve this Litchfield County treasure.

New Milford CT Real Estate Market Report April 2013

Home for sale New Milford, CT
Home for sale New Milford, CT

The question in most peoples minds in regards to real estate is… “how’s the real estate market doing”? With the national news still reporting it is a buyers market, that things are exploding, that things are much, much better is simply not true in most of Connecticut. All real estate is local, New Milford CT is not following the national averages. We are in a very fragile market, the economy, new jobs, unemployment rates, these things affect our local market. Not national averages.

There are many things to watch for that are important when answering the question about the health of the real estate market in New Milford, CT. Comparing the amount of active listings to the amount sold is very important. Then looking at how many average days it took to get these to close is also telling for a seller. A buyer wants to know if it is a buyers market, and we are in a buyers market no doubt. My favorite statistic is the list to sales price, however I prefer to look at the original list to sales price rather than the last list to sales price. That tells much to me, are listings still overpriced?

How many active listings are there? Currently there are 207 single family homes for sale in New Milford, CT. Last month at this time there were 176 active single family homes showing for sale. For sellers it means there is more competition and prices won’t rise simply because of supply and demand. Another telling factor is the amount of short sales we have listed are rising too. In March there were 15 active short sales, a number that seems to be on the rise here in New Milford. As of this moment in time 19 of the 207 active single family homes for sale in New MIlford are short sales. That represents 9% of the single family homes listed! That is a number we cannot ignore when both listing and selling homes and affects the saleability of these homes. Many buyers simply cannot or will not wait for a short sale to be approved and the purchase to happen.

April 2013, 16 single family homes closed in New Milford, CT. That is no change from March 2013.

April 2013, the average list price of a single family home rose dramatically with no sales justification. April 2013 average list price was $450.474. In March of 2013 the average list price was $369,794. We have not seen an average list price that high since September of 2012.

Average sales price in April of 2013 was down from the previous month. April’s average sales price for single family homes in New Milford, CT was $324,394. The average sales price for March 2013 was $362,547.

Mixed messages abound! The current real estate market in New Milford, CT is still fragile at best. I see more buyers out, more homes going under deposit, all good. I also know deals are tougher than ever to hold together. Homes that go under deposit often come back on the market.

It is still a buyers market in New Milford, CT. The absorption rate, or the time it will take to sell the current inventory, if no more homes come on the market, is 11 months. 6 months is a balanced market, under 6 months a sellers market, over 6 months is a buyers market. With current inventory on the rise, if we don’t have a good increase in sales this month it may go higher.

My advice to sellers, understand it is a buyers market. Get your house ready to sell, make it stand out above the competition, price it right according to the condition and location of your home and the current local market conditions.

My advice to buyers, although it is a buyers market, recent changes to the mortgage industry can make getting a loan more complicated. A good mortgage person to guide you, an agent with a grasp on the local market are what is needed. Although the inventory is rising, certain price points have less homes and the competition can make you feel like you are running the gauntlet.

New Milford CT Real Estate Market February 2013

Single Family Homes, real estate statistics for New Milford, CT February 2013.
New Milford CT Real Estate Market
For the 9th month in a row New Milford, CT is seeing fewer active listings. February 2012 showed a sharp decline of homes available for sale. This is a good thing, a glut of homes on the market does not bode well for home owners looking to sell. I would like to see an increase in sales also, but this didn’t happen in February. It was a short month, but closed sales were down.

A marked increase in the number of short sales for sale in New Milford is evident. Currently there are 15 active short sale listings. In January of 2013 there were only 9 active short sales. This, coupled with a shrinking inventory does mean a tougher overall buying experience. Many would be buyers are shying away from short sales. In other parts of the country short sales are either leveling off or in decline. Not here, and this is indicative of a fragile market.

Is the shrinking inventory of homes for sale in New Milford, CT causing home prices to rise? Statistics for the last three months show an increase in the average list and sale price. However, homes that sold in February 2013 sold for 94.1% of the LAST LISTED price and 89.9% of the ORIGINAL LIST PRICE.

How does that translate to the seller? If you overprice your home it will sit on the market longer and still sell for much lower than you probably hoped for. To illustrate, statistics say that if you list your home for $350,000, it will sell an average of 180 days later for $315,000. Big difference.

New Milford CT Real Estate MarketI remain cautiously optimistic for the future of the real estate market in New Milford, CT. Only time will tell as the market is still so very fragile. Buyers are very aware it is a buyers market and are looking for a bargain. With the amount of active listings shrinking it can be very frustrating for them.

Sellers still need to price their homes according to recent sales and competitive active listings. Although it seems prices are increasing, the truth is with such a small amount of sales happening, one high priced sale can skew the stats. Low home sales combined with a 15 month inventory still make it a buyers market all the way around.

Remember, real estate is hyper local! Contact Swiedler, Pomerantz & Adams for up to date Southern Litchfield County real estate information.

And you thought you couldn’t afford to buy a home in Washington, CT!

First time home buyers in Litchfield County CT need to start with the mortgage!

keys n houseWith the rates as low as they are, and home prices still relatively low in Litchfield County CT, perhaps you think it might be time to start looking for a house. And you are not quite sure where to start.

The first, most important step for you is to find out if you qualify for a mortgage and how much of a mortgage you qualify for.

There are a few things that are very important when looking for a lender.

  • Do they offer a first time home buyer program?
  • Do they help you get yourself on the right track if you have credit issues?
  • Is there someone you can actually meet with?
  • Do they have a good reputation? (Ask your real estate agent)

There are some really good programs out there that just might fit your situation. There are programs to help you with your down payment, there are programs that have really low rates but do have restrictions you might not be comfortable with, there are programs for 100% financing. Each program is different and not all lenders offer all of these programs.

Here are a few options to consider for first time home buyers in Litchfield County. Each program is different, the income limits vary from program to program, and certain programs have requirements that may make a more or less desirable for your situation.

Not all lenders participate in each of these programs. This means you have to do a bit of homework yourself to see which is the best fit for you then contact the appropriate lender. We do know who participates in the following programs, people we know and trust. Give us a call at 860.946.0686 if you want more information.

The Housing Development Fund

HDF has programs for down payments and closing costs as well as partnering with certain lenders for the mortgage. This is an awesome product, my daughter used it to buy her home. You will be assigned a counselor and will have to attend an orientation with them. They can even help you get any credit issues resolved to get you on your way to home ownership. All in all a very good product for those who meet the income limits, and Litchfield County is in their service area.

USDA Rural Development

The United States Department of Agriculture has a great program for first time home buyers. There is 100% financing available as well as the ability to borrow up to 103% of the appraised value of the home. You do not have to be a first time home buyer to use this product, but it is a great fit for certain first time home buyers in certain parts of Litchfield County CT. To determine if the property you are eligible for go to their website and plug in the address.

CHFA

The current interest rate for a CHFA (Connecticut Housing Finance Authority) is lower than the rest at 2.75%. There is one thing you need to know, if you sell your home within 9 years of the purchase you may be responsible to pay a recapture tax. You need to make sure you understand this completely before you decide this loan is for you. CHFA also offers down payment assistance through their DAP loans, as well as a partnership with the Housing Development Fund.

FHA

The federal government offers loan products for first time home buyers. You must be able to put down a deposit that is 3.5% of the purchase price. It also may be possible to include some of the closing costs into your loan. But you will need that down payment!

VA Loans

The Veterans Administration offers home loan guaranty programs to active duty service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses. There is no down payment requirement as long as purchase price doesn’t exceed the appraised value. Also there is no private mortgage insurance on a VA loan.

I think the most important thing you must remember is not all lenders participate in these programs, so you cannot get all the information in a one stop shop situation!

First time home buyers in Litchfield County do have access to some very desirable products that can make your dream of home ownership come true. Give us a call at 860.946.0686 and we will help direct you to the appropriate people who can assist you in your search for the right mortgage for your situation!

The Housatonic River in New Milford CT, Just For Fun!

IMGP6478 2_ 3__tonemappedI am afraid to say I have, at times in my tenure in New Milford, taken the Housatonic River for granted. Lately my thoughts have been consumed with the fact that today is the last day I have to drive over the bridge to get to my office. Suddenly it dawned on me that I won’t be driving over the river every day to get my office!

The Housatonic River begins its trek from the heart of the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts in two places. From Muddy Pond in Hinsdale, Ma and Pontoosuc Lake, located in Lanesborough and Pittsfield, MA. In my little neck of the woods the Housatonic River is fed by the East and West Aspetuck River (the East Aspetuck headway is Lake Waramaug). Candlewood Lake is fed by the Housatonic River at the Rocky River Power Plant on Route 7. A giant penstock carries the water up the hill and into Candlewood Lake. Driving by the penstock I do often wonder who thought to do that in the first place?!?

Map of the Houstaonic River Watershed.

Our area in New Milford was settled by the Weantinocks, a branch of the Paugussett Indian Nation, and the Pooatuck’s who left their mark forever with their lore of their mighty Chief Waramaug and his daugher Lillinonah. It is said they lived high above the gorge at Lovers Leap. And like any good native folk lore, his daughter plummeted to her death with her English lover. (really the story can’t be true, but it is a great one). It is said they summered at Lake Waramaug (hence the name). I guess they understood the beauty of the river and lake way back when as we still do. It is also said that Chief Waramaug had the biggest long house in New England built on the river, interesting. It was 100X20 feet, and was decorated by many famous native artists from tribes all over. Magnificent indeed! It was called Waramaug’s Palace. Some things just don’t change! Lake Waramaug is still a favorite summer destination with some magnificent homes dotting the landscape around the lake.

The native’s were mostly farmers and fishermen that lived on the Housatonic River.  In a history book by Samual Orcutt it is said the natives here were peaceful and helped the colonists as they moved here.  The natives called the river “usi-a-di-en-uk” which means “beyond the mountain place”. Over time the river has changed. Dams were added, Candlewood Lake was built, but the river remains a large part of our history. Much of southern New Milford along the riverbed was comprised of tobacco and dairy farms which gained their richness of soil from the Housatonic River.

These days the river is used by many for recreation. We see a resurgence of canoes and kayaks, I understand further north of New Milford there are some great white water rapids that many enjoy. There are plenty of hiking trails, even the Appalachian Trail runs along the Housatonic River in Kent at Bulls Bridge. (In my younger years I always wanted to hike the entire trail… dreams of youth I suppose. Although I have walked it just enough to say I was “on it” at Bulls Bridge.)

A drive from New Milford north up Route 7 is fantastic any time of year. The river is your companion along much of the trip, you can see fishermen, people riding bicycles,…..canoes and kayaks, there are wonderful shops and restaurants, and of course the covered bridges at Bulls Bridge and Cornwall Bridge. The trip is beautiful any time of year.

Today there are a variety of homes up and down the Housatonic River of all prices and sizes. Those that live on the Housatonic River get a daily dose of its beauty. The railroad does also follow the river, I hope someday they will bring the passenger railroad back, what a trip that would be! I know they are working on it.

Take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the Housatonic River. In Southern New Milford at the head of Lake Lillinonah you can hike through Lovers Leap State Park, I have gotten some fantastic photos of the river at the old mill on the river. It is said that Chief Waramaug is buried there in the hills above the gorge at Lovers Leap. (Sounds like a hike is in my future.) Perhaps the old Boardman Bridge will spark your imagination. There has been talk over the years of restoring this beautiful old bridge and I hope they will. You are no longer allowed on the bridge, but there is plenty of parking around to get out and enjoy the river views from the bridge area. Many times I stop at Addis Park on Grove Street, just to look at the Housatonic as it flows downstream to Lovers Leap.

What sparked my story of the Housatonic River? An email from an 86 year old woman who summered on one of the few islands of the Housatonic River asking me for more information about her beloved island. She shared a few precious memories of her time here, it was wonderful. I hope to get her some pictures soon and hear more of her stories. I do love history, sometimes we forget that our own local history can be just as exciting as the history of far away places.

The Housatonic River, a Litchfield County treasure!

New Milford CT Real Estate Market Stats January 2013

House for sale New Milford CTThe real estate market in New Milford, CT seems to be picking up. There are fewer active listings and more buyers are out looking. This is very good news for people selling their homes as the last two months have been slow in both closed home sales and buyer activity. For buyers it may be a bit frustrating as there are more of you out looking for the same piece of pie. And your favorite pie may not exist!

Search homes for sale in New Milford, CT.

One thing I will note, southern Litchfield County is behind the real estate times. While other parts of the country are pulling out of short sales we are seeing more of them. With rules and laws changing, this could mean some challenges are ahead of those who need to sell but owe more than their homes are worth. The unemployment rate in Connecticut is still higher than the national average, people need jobs to buy homes, point blank. We do hope to see the downward trend of November and December unemployment rates continue, however much of that may have been seasonal employment for the holidays.

For sellers in New Milford, CT the message is very clear. Your home must be

  • priced better than the competition
  • your home must present well to buyers
  • issues with your home must be addressed by either fixing them or pricing according to the issues
  • presented by your listing agent in the best light possible to as many buyers as possible.

For buyers, although it is most definitely a buyers market, the inventory is shrinking and buyers need to be ready to move when the right house comes along. You should be pre approved for a mortgage before you go out and look!

Understanding the real estate market, study the stats for New Milford, CT.

  • January 2013 saw 15 single family homes sell.
  • January 2012 saw 12 homes sell.
  • December 2012 saw 16 homes sell.
  • In January 2013, the average list price for single family homes was $337,153.
  • In January 2013, the average sale price for single family homes was $295,767.
  • It took an average of 213 days to sell these homes.
  • Homes sold at 95.2% of their last listed price, however they actually sold at 94% of their original list price.

As I write this, (February 3, 2013) the stats are as follows:

  • There are 149 active single family homes for sale. 9 are short sales and 6 are foreclosures.
  • There are 19 homes in the sale contingent status. 4 are short sales and 1 is a foreclosure.
  • There are 24 homes that are under contract waiting to close. 6 are short sales and 3 are foreclosures.

The real estate absorption rate for New Milford, CT is an important number to understand. It shows how long it will take to sell the current inventory of homes if no more homes come on the market. Currently we have 11 months of inventory. Anything over 6 months is a buyers market, 6 months is a balanced market, and under 6 months is a sellers market. Although our inventory is shrinking, we are in a buyers market. Sellers would do well to understand this.
