Sammy Hagar donates to the Ledyard Food Pantry

Sammy Hagar makes a habit of donating to a food bank in every city he plays.  Ledyard was the recipient of his generosity last night when the Red Rocker himself appeared at Foxwoods Resort Casino and donated $2500 to the Ledyard Food Pantry. Food Pantry supervisor, Carol Gauthier accepted the check along with Mayor Fred Allyn and myself. An amount that large is is a significant gift for a pantry our size and his generosity will go far. Thank you Sammy for helping to feed our neighbors in need.

Ledyard Real Estate Update

Front duskAs expected, the last two weeks of August and through Labor Day were slow for real estate in Ledyard as back to school and final vacations seemed to occupy the minds of buyers in the area. Now that Labor Day is behind us, September and October should be steady as far as real estate activity.

Inventory dropped back to only 77 active listings, still quite low compared to a year ago when there were 109 Ledyard homes on the market.  Continued good news for sellers, the 171 closed sales in 2017 have a median sold price of $233,000 a significant increase over the median closed price in 2016 of $204,900. Of course, this is still much lower than our peak years of 2005-2007 when the median price was over $270,000. 

The high end market in Ledyard could be described as homes in the upper $300,000 range as only 4 homes have closed over $400,000. The two highest priced homes to have closed this year in Ledyard were on Red Brook Lane and closed at $440,000 and $450,000.

With inventory still low, I expect an excellent fall market. Traditionally September and October are good months but I expect this year we might be even better.
