So you are shopping in the beautiful town of New Canaan, but you want more options. Everyone has a unique set of criteria, and if you are like most of our clients, you will discover what's really important once you start shopping. Maybe the homes aren't big enough or in good enough condition, you want to be closer to town, or it’s just a better home for the money that you are after. Regardless of your criteria, I have options for you.

New Canaan CT - Low Inventory Tips:

My experience leads me to believe that you probably like New Canaan for its combination of having premium amenities, the small town charm and the overall value including relatively low taxes. 

If it’s the small town feel that you are after, try hopping over the line to Wilton. You will want to explore the area along Old Ridgefield Rd near the Wilton train station. The village area here is very charming, but not as robust as the one you will find in New Canaan. The trade off being that you will get more home for your money in Wilton. When shopping, keep in mind that the taxes are a bit higher relative to New Canaan.

If you love the peace and serenity of nature that New Canaan offers, but the small town feel isn't that important, Stamford may be a good fit. You will see a noticeable improvement in the home you get for the same money, along with a cool, hip, bustling city with an excellent train station. Keep in mind that taxes are higher in Stamford too. 

If you think Stamford could be a fit, check out our Stamford Neighborhood Tour when you are done with this article, then head over to our website and grab our maps, guides and checklists. They are going to make your life a whole lot easier.

Let’s say it’s the best public school system that you are after. While I am limited on what I can say about the schools, I can compile the information for you so that you can make the decision. In the town comparison guide section of our home buyers guide, you will find the information you need. Let me say this, if it’s highly rated public schools that you are after you have plenty of options in the area.

If you are thinking of purchasing over $4MM, you will also benefit from our Gold Coast Luxury Buyers Guide because these homes have their own unique market characteristics, and you need to be aware of them before buying. Again, head over to our channel or shoot me an email for those:

If you need extra space for an office, more beds or baths, or just need a larger home for your family, New Canaan is a great option, but you may want to also try Wilton and Weston because they consistently average more square footage for the same money.


When you are thinking of buying or selling in New Canaan, I would like to work with you. 

If you aren’t ready yet, head over to my website and grab the maps, guides and checklists that we have created for you. They will save you hundreds of hours of research and help you make a better decision for you and your family.

I look forward to hearing from you!
