Ledyard Events

Events Header

I’ve tried a number of ways to build a Ledyard Events Calendar over the years and finally found the quickest and easiest way was to create a Ledyard Events group on Facebook. With not a whole lot of publicity, it is doing well and membership is growing. If you are a member of Facebook, please join and consider creating or sharing your Ledyard events there. It is an open group which means anyone can see and share events outside the group. When your group decides to hold an event, add Ledyard Events as a place to publicize.

Ledyard Real Estate Quick Stats

Ledyard Real Estate Quick Stats are published every two weeks and offer a simple look at Ledyard Real Estate.  One year ago, there were over 100 single family homes to sell in Ledyard. Today there are only 71 which will almost certainly begin to drive up prices if low inventory continues this spring.  One year ago, the median sales price of closed sales was around $200,000 while today it is $225,000.  We have a better idea of 2018 trends as we close in on the end of the 1st quarter.

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

Ledyard Town Wide Yard Sale 2018

Yard SaleTodayI’ve been inundated with messages asking when our 4th Ledyard Town Wide Yard Sale will be scheduled in 2018!  After the first year with over 100 yard sales on one day, we decided to split the yard sales by zip code giving everyone the opportunity to shop.  This year 06339 will be held on June 2nd and 06335 will be held on June 9th. Registration will be available by April 15th

We’ve bought hundreds of signs but very few were returned so we will be asking you to make your own signs this year and we will award a  prize for the most original Open House sign in each zip-code.  Feel free to reuse your signs from the past and we will place the signs we do have in multiple locations.

Visit this website for updates and maps when they are available.

So how much did it snow in Ledyard?

It depends who you ask and where they live.  I saw ranges on social media from 7 inches to 26 inches. The lower amounts seemed on the Thames River side of Gales Ferry while the higher amounts were in Ledyard.  I am on the Thames Side of Gales Ferry where I measured 12 inches. 

The National Weather Service has trained spotters who typically measure in a yard away from trees and not on decks, porches or railings.  Their reports are in the screen capture below with the view of my 12 inches of snow out my kitchen window.

Ledyard Real Estate Quick Stats

Ledyard Real Estate Quick Stats are published each weekend and offer a simple look at Ledyard Real Estate.  One year ago, there were over 100 single family homes to sell in Ledyard. Today there are only 69 which will almost certainly begin to drive up prices if low inventory continues this spring.  One year ago, the median sales price of closed sales was under $200,000 while today it is $232,500.  What a difference a year makes!
