Buying a Connecticut Home Can Bring You Closers to Celebrity A-listers, and Apple Orchards.

By: Bella Kellogg


You should always try to become an expert on the market before you invest in any Connecticut real estate. It’s important to capture a feel for the neighborhood that you are looking to buy in. There are so many dynamic features to each of the regions of Connecticut and it’s only natural that you will want to drive through the different neighborhoods, make observations and take notes.

There are different things that attract each of us to specific neighborhoods. For example, in the Fairfield County Connecticut real estate market alone, there is such variety!

Norwalk has several downtown areas and an absolutely beautiful waterfront. If you’re the type of person who likes dining at four-star restaurants near the water, Norwalk, and similar gorgeous towns like Wilton, Darien and Westport, just might appeal to you.

If rural settings is more your thing, you may enjoy the small town feel and close knit community of Easton, with horseback riding, apple orchards and plenty of activities for children.

New Canaan will be appealing to anyone wealthy, who is a sucker for the quintessential storybook New England towns with big beautiful homes, rolling green lawns, a great train station and Waveny Park on South Avenue.

The wealthy, including A-list celebrities and corporate CEO’s, tend to flock to Connecticut’s premier town of Greenwich, which is convenient to Manhattan and has incredible schools, country clubs, beaches and fine dining.

Anyone interested in lakeside grand estates and historical homes might want to check out Connecticut real estate listings in Woodbury or Roxbury.

For the sake of time, this article can’t possibly get into every Connecticut neighborhood, but it’s advisable that anyone interested in buying Connecticut real estate embark on an expedition of sorts to determine what region they are most attracted to by gathering information and getting a feel for the area.

Take a scenic Sunday drive. Write down the addresses of any properties with signs indicating they are “For Rent”, “For Sale” or “Sold”. Call Connecticut real estate brokers or Connecticut real estate agents to learn more about the properties, the neighborhood in general and the market trends.

Certain sections of the Connecticut real estate market may be experiencing a downtrend. Be sure to ask why this is. What is causing people to leave these areas? Has there been an influx of violence and crime or a loss of jobs in the region? Don’t be shy about placing telephone calls to people that own Connecticut real estate or local brokers and neighborhood realtors. They should welcome the opportunity to provide you with the back-story and history of the property and the neighborhood that you are interested in. Inquire as to whether or not there are any nearby inns or bed & breakfast establishments and stay overnight, into the morning, to experience the area. Take in local dining, entertainment and recreation.

You wouldn’t purchase a new car without a test drive, would you? It’s reasonable to say that feeling out a Connecticut neighborhood, making sure it’s right for you, before investing in Connecticut real estate, makes just as much sense.
