So you want to buy a Log Cabin!

Or need to SELL your existing Log Home? Have a Log Home to SELL and not finding an agent who truly understands selling the dream?  Then call and we can discuss how to bring your cabin to the folks that WANT to live the Cabin Lifestyle!

Now is a perfect time!  Cabins come in all shapes and sizes, from comfy&cozy let’s say under 1200sqft to the sprawling ‘not your grampa’s Log Cabin’ of 5000, 10,000 or more in sqft!  You can find your Cabin Home deep in the woods, alongside the river, Lakeside and even in the midst of a neighborhood of more ‘traditional’ homes.

What are you waiting for- let’s take a look at what is out there in the Connecticut market- and if you don’t see what you are looking for today- please give me a call and let’s talk about needs and FIND you what you are seeking.

First order of business is always financing, or How are you going to plan to pay for this purchase.  First home, Second home, Vacation home, First time buyer, down sizing or off the grid buyer, Whatever your reason for buying the final goal cannot be accomplished without a clear cut plan.

Financing this purchase- Great news! With interest rates at levels that will not last forever- taking advantage of your buying power is the order of the day!!!

CASH to purchase- then you have negotiating power to set quick close date and at a favorable price that is mutually agreeable.

If you are planning to finance your purchase then step 1 is to get qualified for your mortgage- be it VA, FHA, FHA203K, or Conventional- whatever your path, you need to have this part of the search locked in BEFORE you find the perfect DREAM.  (if not, you risk the dream slipping away when you find out either you do not qualify for the amount you were seeking or the home does not meet the criteria for the lender and loan product you have chosen- either way get the finance piece done first and the risk of this happening is greatly reduced!)  Let me show you how to get started.

Following up the SPRING/Early Summer reports of Log Cabin homes on the market statewide- it is now heading into FALL Market and as of TODAY’s date we have 79 Log Cabin on the market statewide, 5 NEW listings this week, 11 listings LESS than 20 days on the market and 10 prior listings Under Deposit.

This week’s new Log Cabin home listings are located in Washington, Winchester, Brooklyn, East Hampton and Stonington.  With existing homes available in towns such as East Hampton, East Haddam, Preston, Killingworth, and Haddam just to name a few there is truly a cabin available in just about every section of the state!!

The price range for Log Cabin homes ranges from $79,900-  $799,900K.  This means there is something for everyone!

….and if building your very own Log Home is on the agenda- get with me (860-575-5001 Cell/Text) and let’s discuss land options in the state- there are some incredible buying opportunities if you want to start from Raw Land and build your home! [5 acres for $49K…among others- ask me where to find those buildable lots- would love to help!!]

Have said it before and will say it again- owning and loving a Log Cabin home is a life choice and a dreamers decision.  Enjoy the journey to your Log Cabin dream…and if you are in Central, Shoreline or Eastern CT I would be more than honored to share the journey with you- fellow dreamer!
