Ledyard's Berwick Subdivision

Ledyard subdivisions come in all shapes and sizes but none is as unique as BerwickThe 18 wooded home-sites of Berwick were developed as a subdivision in 1973.  With 150 acres, each lot contains about 5 acres, although several are much larger.  Most of the homes were custom built, which allows for a wide range of styles including traditional colonials, contemporaries and even a log home.

When you ask someone from Ledyard where Berwick is located, it is most likely they have never heard of it. Although Berwick is located within a very short  drive of the Mystic I-95 exit, it is tucked away off the quiet end of Gallup Hill Road, where most Ledyard/Gales Ferry residents seldom travel. Berwick is made up of three streets, Avebury Berwick, Chatham Berwick and Brentford Berwick.

Many of the residents of Berwick are original owners and homes are not often for sale in the subdivision. When the original subdivision lots were being sold, Berwick was described as “an exceptional community for very private people who enjoy peaceful seclusion in a rustic setting.”  This is still true over 40 years later.

Ledyard on Facebook

I think it is pretty darn cool how many Ledyard folks are on Facebook. The Ledyard Community Forum on Facebook is now over 4000 members. While I post Ledyard update and news on the forum as well as on my Facebook Ledyard CT page, I keep most of my real estate chat and advice on my Facebook Real Estate Page.  I often share my favorite articles and home decorating tips so next time you find yourself on Facebook, stop by and take a look at what I’m sharing.

Ledyard Real Estate Update

Front2017 continues the positive trend of 2016 which ended with the highest number of closed sales since 2005. The 15 closed sales so far in 2017 have a very respectable median price of $225,000. Inventory remains very low with 74 homes on the market in Ledyard.

I believe spring is going to be good for Ledyard Home Sellers but condition and proper pricing will remain critical. The difference between great condition and average condition can affect home values by a significant margin. If you are thinking of selling your home this year, please ask for a copy of our Dress Your House for Success checklist. We would be happy to send it to you.

 On the Market

Inventory remains at the lowest level of recent years (good news for sellers). On February 4th there are ONLY 74 single family homes on the market In Ledyard with a median price of $282,000. Of these 16 are new construction.

Current Pending Sales

There are currently 28 pending listings with a median list price of $204,000. There are currently 12 pending sales but "Show for Backup" with a median list price of $237,000. Homes are often listed as "Show for Backup" when there may be a concern about contract contingencies including financing.
