Westport And Weston Connecticut Rental Market Update

Westport And Weston Connecticut Rental Market Update

The Westport and Weston rental markets always seem to be moving well. January 2012 has been no exception. Here is some quick information on Westport: There are currently 63 residential properties on the market ranging from a small cape on Riverside Avenue for $1300 to a stunning 4-Bedroom home on Brightfield Lane for $44,000, fully-furnished for the summer. This is located in the posh area of Greens Farms. The median rental price is $4500 in Westport and includes ranches, capes, contemporaries, colonials and barns.

The Weston rental market is slightly sleepier than Westport with 16 currently available. The low end of the market is in the Georgetown section on North Maple Street and the high end is on Twin Fall Lane for $7900 per month. This is a 5900 square foot, 14-room colonial.

Depending on the weather, we will begin to see the active seasonal rental search for beach and summer properties. Westport is a highly-desirable summer location due to the amenities within town and the lovely beaches including Compo Beach. It’s a great lifestyle!

5 Things We Love About Westport Connecticut

5 Things We Love About Westport Connecticut

I have the advantage of picking the brains of 50 real estate agents every day. All of them are actively involved in the community and have an in-depth knowledge of Westport and the surrounding areas. In the next few weeks, I am going to post some of the things they love about Westport Connecticut. It’s an interesting list for local Westporters, but also those thinking about buying here.

Winslow Park-This is in the heart of Westport and a designated off-leash dog walking park full of grass and trails to follow. http://www.dogster.com/local/CT/Westport/Dog_Parks/Winslow_park-123129

Westport Country Playhouse-This is another gem in the center of town. This 80-year old theater includes an intimate setting for locals and NYC theater-goers. Many of the shows eventually move to Broadway from this theater. It’s an experience and a treat to attend a show here. http://www.westportplayhouse.org/ourseason/2011seasonataglance.aspx?gclid=CPyErYne96oCFeMD5QodLkuIOw

Our local post office, where the clerks have been there for many years. They take the time to know the residents and remember their names.

Westport Public Library-This is one of the most organized and community-minded libraries around. The list of free courses is endless and the public always has something interesting to attend there. http://www.WestportLibrary.org

Westport Patch-This is a newer hyperlocal online news site. The editors have a great handle on the community and engage on a local level. It’s worth a peek at http://www.WestportPatch.com
