Home sales in New Canaan increased 8% in October from the year-ago month, according to new data.
The increase from 12 to 13 total homes sold included one in the $3 million to $5 million range, according to the data, released by the New Canaan Board of Realtors.
The organization’s president, Janis Hennessy, said New Canaan has seen “an active Fall.”
“The market is less seasonal than it used to be which is the sign of a buyer’s market,” Hennessy said in an email. “It is especially strong [year-to-date] in the $1 million to $2 million range. It’s a great time to buy.”
Here’s a table summarizing the activity in October:
Single-Family Home Sales, October 2019*

|$1 milion to $1.99 million||7||5|
|$2 milion to $2.99 million||3||4|
|$3 million to $5 million||1||0|
