Driving Factors For Connecticut Real Estate Market


While prices have increased dramatically since the pandemic, real estate in Connecticut is still relatively affordable compared to its Tri-State counterpart, New York.

Declining Foreclosure Rates

Even with rising prices and interest rates, foreclosure filings in CT are down about 69.5% over the first six months of 2022 from the same point in the previous year.

Long-Term Rental Properties

Historically low inventory levels are creating more competition for properties, with many borrowers flocking to long-term rental “buy and holds” as opposed to fix and flip projects that are carrying thinner margins.

The momentum realized during the Pandemic should continue throughout 2022 and help real estate in The Nutmeg State get one step closer to the rest of the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions

The great idea about lending in Connecticut is the diverse types of assets that we can lend on, from single family homes, to homes on acreage, to more metro investment opportunities.

We find that more suburban areas bordering more affluent towns (i.e. Greenwich) can provide near-identical returns without the home prices of the neighboring geography.

EquityMax lends on mainly residential real estate – inclusive of single family homes, condos, and townhomes. In a state like Connecticut, we focus on more non-qualifying investment opportunities, such as vacant land, manufactured homes, and rural property home loans.
