New Canaan Condominium Market 2012

My mother always said, “Good things come in small packages”.  As she was only 5’1″ in stature I understand her fondness for the saying.  In many ways she was right. But, smaller does not necessarily mean sacrificing comfortable amenities and functional space. Condominium buyers sought both last year in their effort to downsize and simplify their lives.

More than 50% of the units sold consisted of 3 bedrooms with 2.5 bathrooms and between 1,200 and 2,000 square feet of finished living space. 17 larger units also sold. More than half  of the condominiums were renovated or updated and had a least a one car garage. Several have transformed their lower levels to provide additional areas for playrooms, offices etc. A quarter of the properties sold have an in-ground pool included in the association amenities and all are walking distance to the center of  New Canaan’s restaurants and vibrant village.
