I was busy this week signing up some new for-sale listings, which is swell, of course, but what about buyers? Has Hartford finally made it unbearable to live in CT, or are there still a few hearty souls willing to take a chance?
Judging by the busy parking lot I just observed at broker Rob Johnson’s public open house going on now at 81 Lockwood Road, Riverside ($2,599,000), the answer is yes, there are actual buyers out there looking, praise be to [deity of your choice]!
As I was leaving, three more cars showed up, so really, that is a significant sign. Nice house, by the way, with a phenomenal rent-record, fetching as much as $13,500 per month. Walkable to Eastern Junior High* and Riverside Elementary.
* I’m no longer cooperating with the label “middle school”.
