Ledyard Real Estate Quick Stats

statsLedyard Real Estate Quick Stats are published each weekend and offer a simple look at Ledyard Real Estate.  The number of Ledyard residential homes offered for sale remains  low.  As far as pricing, there is not enough data yet in 2018 to make any determination of trends although pending sales reflect a lower segment of the market selling and that may reflect a lower median sales price when these homes close in a month or two. The highest priced home to sell in Ledyard this year is a home in August Meadows which closed at $390,000 in January.

The median closed sales price in 2017 was $225,500, an increase of 10% from 2016.

Ledyard Food Pantry Wish List

Here is our February Wish List. We have none or very little of the following items which we like to have available if we are able. Yes, I’m sad to say we have lots of peanut butter but no jelly to be found on the shelves.

Ledyard Town Hall now has a donation box for the Ledyard Food Pantry.  It is located just inside the front door. This box joins those at Village Market, Holmberg Orchards, Gales Ferry Landing, Parke's Place and Holdridge Nursery. You can also bring your donations directly to the pantry (across from Valentino's) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9-11 and Thursday from 4-6.

Too cold to go out? Donate from the warmth of your living room from our Amazon Wish List. http://a.co/1ijnmWc

Thanks for giving!

Ordinance 38 in Ledyard

Question MarksOne of the more frustrating occurrences during winter storms is having cars parked on a street in your neighborhood. This creates a dangerous situation for drivers as well as  those who perform snow plowing for the Town.  Ordinance #38 prohibits that practice.  The guts of the Ordinance states “No motor vehicle shall be permitted to remain parked on any road within the Town between the hours of 1:00AM through 6:00AM during the period of December 1 through March 31st of each winter.” This is in addition to any Parking Ban that may be issued.

The Town Council is in the process of reviewing all Town Ordinances.  While I agree with Ordinance #38 in principle, what is missing is how the ordinance should be enforced. If I have a problem in my neighborhood, do I call the Mayor, Public Works or Ledyard Police?  Ordinance #38 indicates the Mayor directs any towing or removal effort so until the Town Council reviews and clarifies this Ordinance, my best advice would be to call the Mayor’s office. 

You can find Ordinance #38 HERE

statsLedyard Real Estate Quick Stats are published each weekend and offer a simple look at Ledyard Real Estate.  The number of Ledyard residential homes offered for sale remains  low but quite similar to a year ago  We’ve had our share of frigid and snowy weather which also tends to deter home sellers and buyers.  As far as pricing, there is not enough data yet in 2018 to make any determination of trends although pending sales reflect a lower segment of the market selling. 

2017 saw over a 10% increase in pricing from the previous year which is a trend in the right direction.
