Frequently asked questions about Connecticut real estate

Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Connecticut?

Currently, it is a seller’s market in Connecticut. Although the sale prices are starting to decrease, high demand doesn’t leave properties sitting on the market for long. While this is the general situation across the state, each city and town is different — which is why it’s important to consult with a top, local real estate agent to determine the actual trends in your area.

Is Connecticut a good state to invest in real estate?

Yes, Connecticut is a good state to invest real estate in. Bigger cities like Bridgeport and New Haven are prime areas, as people are always looking for housing in these cities. However, to maximize your investment, you must first understand your financing options and learn where the best neighborhoods in the state are. Learn more about it in our guide to real estate investing.

Is it a good time to buy a house in Connecticut?

It could be a /real-estate-blog/the-best-time-to-buy-a-house-in-connecticut/. Even though listing prices are higher than average, the final sales prices tend to match or go under the estimated value of a property — meaning that there’s a lot of room to negotiate a good deal. On top of that, mortgage rates in the state are quite low. With the help of the right real estate agent, you could get a great deal on the perfect home.
