Real Estate Market Data for Fairfield, CT

 Fairfield, CT Beach early Spring

 

Fairfield is a great Connecticut town, located in Fairfield County  

 

In 2012 Fairfield was voted 64th in the Top 100 Towns to Live in the United States by Money Magazine.  Fairfield is one of the larger towns in Fairfield County, with waterfront properties on scenic Long Island Sound and Fairfield University is located near the center of town.

 

If you are looking to live here there are many wonderful neighborhoods to consider.  Last month we talked about the University area and Greenfield Hill.  Fairfield is big, so this month I thought we could look closer at the Beach area in Fairfield and Southport, CT.

Dagny, most communities that have shorelines are blessed as they offer so much in the way of views and relaxation. Lower Fairfield has some fine areas, Sherwood Island being one as well.
