This... is Westport Connecticut. We are going to explore the available options for Westport CT when there is low inventory, so you can make the best decision for you and your family

Hi, my name is Charlie Vinci. I am a Westport CT Realtor, and my realty team and I specialize in helping buyers understand what living in Westport CT entails and how to relocate to the area.

So what if you aren't finding the home you are looking for in Westport? Everyone has a unique set of criteria, and after a little shopping our clients tend to learn what’s really important. Maybe the homes aren't big enough or in good enough condition, perhaps you want more waterfront options, you are looking for a short train commute to Manhattan, or it’s just a better home for the money that you are after. Regardless of your criteria, I have options for you.

Westport CT - Low Inventory Tips:

So let's say that it’s a better home that you are after. Perhaps you have been looking at homes online and you want a more updated home for the money. I am going to recommend that you hop over the line to either Fairfield or Weston. Weston is a great location if you love the peace and serenity of nature, however there isn't much commercial development which means you will likely go out of town for shopping and restaurants. If you want easier access to the train, shopping, nightlife and a ton of high end restaurants, try Fairfield. Also, if it’s a beach that you are after, Fairfield has one of the best beaches along Connecticut's Gold Coast.

For some of our clients, the drawbacks for Fairfield and Weston are the longer commute times to Grand Central Station. They add about ten to fifteen minutes to your train commute depending on the location that you choose. If this is the case for you, I would recommend considering New Canaan. The train commute time is similar to Westport, and New Canaan also has a charming village area with just about everything you could need or want. 

We have neighborhood tours on most of the areas I mention, and I would recommend that you watch them after you are done with this article. Feel free to check out the rest of my website and grab our maps, guides and checklists. They will save you tons of time and help you make a better decision. 

Let’s say that highly rated public schools are a top priority to you. While I am limited on what I can say about the schools, what I can do is compile the information for you, so that you can make the decision for your family. I have done this in the town comparison section of our buyers guide

So what if you have always dreamed of owning a piece of waterfront real estate, but the homes you have seen so far don’t match that dream? The entire Connecticut gold coast has a host of options from the charming waterfront area in the Southport neighborhood of Fairfield, to the picturesque waterfront estates in Darien, and we can’t forget about the stunningly beautiful waterfront properties in Old Greenwich and Riverside. You have a seemingly unlimited number of options.

I would suggest heading over to our YouTube channel to explore our town specific waterfront buyers guides, or, even easier, shoot me an email and I’ll send you a copy: 

If it’s an ultra luxurious home that you are after, Greenwich is your best option because it offers a large number of high end estates and properties, but don't count out towns like Darien and New Canaan, historically, they have had some very intriguing opportunities as well. 

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

So what if you need extra space for an office, more beds or baths, or just need a larger home for your family, try exploring the towns of New Cannan, Wilton and Weston because they consistently average more square footage for a fixed price.


When you are thinking of buying or selling in Westport, 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!
