These two CT ZIP codes crack top 10 real estate markets in US

Southington is America’s second hottest ZIP code for house hunters according to a simple formula, with a section of Norwalk also cracking the top 10.

Topping the study was Gahanna, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, followed by Southington, Ridgewood, N.J., and Andover, Mass. bases the rankings on the number of people perusing listings online, how fast homes are selling and the affordability of listed prices.

Southington averaged 5.7 views for every home on the market in June, with Gahanna the only other locale on the list of 50 where homes garnered more than four views on average.

Ranking eighth nationally were Norwalk neighborhoods that are included in the 06851 ZIP code, located roughly east the Route 7 corridor and north of Interstate 95, save for a section of the city’s historic core.

Torrington’s 06790 ZIP code barely missed the top 10 based on a lower listed price for the median home at $310,000. Waterbury’s 06708 ZIP code on the west bank of the Naugatuck River ranked 24th nationally, where the median listing was $301,000.

While Connecticut home sales are off from their torrid levels of 2021, buyer interest remains strong despite high interest rates for mortgages, in part due to higher rents that are pushing some to consider a purchase.

Stamford led Connecticut through the first seven months of 2023 with just over 640 homes sold as tracked by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties, down by a third from a year earlier. Of larger Stamford neighborhoods tracked by Berkshire Hathaway, Glenbrook has had the smallest decline in home sales down 18 percent.

In East Norwalk and the city’s Wolfpit neighborhood, sales were up 15 percent and 9 percent respectively from a year earlier through July, helping offset other sections that contributed to a city-wide decline of 23 percent.

IT’S PROBABLY the question I’m asked most: Gardeners want to go wilder and use more native plants to create habitat, but how do they figure out which plants, since it’s not one-size-fits-all regions or even different locations within a region? And choosing, as we mostly do, by hardiness zone isn’t […]
