West Hartford Connecticut Real Estate

West Hartford Connecticut Real Estate

 

West Hartford is not only a great place to live but a destination hot spot.  West Hartford is a thriving town with a central shopping and dining district that attracts visitors from all over Connecticut. Visitors can ditch their cars and spend the day shopping at Blue Back Square, catch a movie and dine at some of the best restaurants around. The town was number-nine pick for Kiplinger’s Best Cities for the Next Decade. “Great neighborhoods, a safe community and great schools have been our tradition," says Mayor Scott Slifka.  The town center is located just minutes from our capital city of Hartford.

Community is key here and a place where you know your neighbors.

Property taxes are high here but great schools and amenities don’t come cheap. Homes values vary significantly from the south end of the city where prices start at under $200,000 to the most desirable section near the town Center with price tags from $350,000 to $500,000 and up.
