Branford Condos Under $200,000 with Garage   One of the most common features I hear from buyers searching for a Branford Condo is their need for a garage.  There was a time when it was difficult to find a condo in Branford with a garage under $200,000.  As the Branford condo market has shifted over the past few years there are now more of these condominiums becoming available for these buyers.   While the inventory of these condos is still a small percentage of the overall number of condo listings currently on the market buyers do have a variety of complexes to choose from. Depending on what areas of Branford are your preference (close to the Branford Town Center or north or south of 1-95) you can click on the map below to find Branford condos under $200,000 with garage.          Donna ...

    Like with most of my posts, I’d like you to take a step back and think as a consumer for a bit.... …Imagine you’re browsing Facebook on your own personal time, you’re not looking for a property, but you see that your local real estate agent is constantly posting his/her listings.  In fact, their entire Facebook Fan Page (or even worse, their personal page) is comprised of only their listings!!!  How likely would it be for you to stay as a “fan” of that agent?  Would that help them establish a personal connection with you? Well, the fact of the matter is that some people take the Facebook terminology too literally and think that the “Wall” is something that they should throw all their business at to see what sticks.  People often forget the meaning of the first word in “social media....

My office is located a few hundred feet from the Branford Armory where on its corner stands a U.S. Army tank.  This tank has been there for the past 30 years placed there as part of the Town of Branford's Korean War Veteran's Memorial. I drive by it every time I go to the office so what a surprise it was to me when sometime in early August I noticed that the place where the tank stood was completely empty.   The tank was missing and I had not seen or heard anything on the news about where it had gone. With the tank removed from the front of the Branford Armory it was so sad and just wasn't the same driving by that corner and not see it standing there and not knowing where it had gone. As I later found out the National Guard had taken the tank away to Camp Niantic for permanent display b...
