Four metro areas in the Constitution State made’s “20 Hottest Housing Markets” list for April 2024.

To come up with its ranking, the real estate website looked at two key factors in analyzing house markets: Market demand, measured by unique property views on, and the pace of the market, measured by how long houses are for sale.

The following Connecticut metro areas made the ranking:

  • No. 8: Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford. Median listing price: $406,000; Median days on market: 30 days.

  • No. 11: New Haven-Milford. Median listing price: $410,000; Median days on market: 32 days.
  • No. 13: Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk. Median listing price: $975,000; Median days on market: 31 days.
  • No. 19: Norwich-New London. Median listing price: $500,000; Median days on market: 35 days.

Researchers noted that the Hartford metro area saw nearly four times the national median views per listing. 

On average, the month’s hottest markets saw home prices jump 6.1 percent in April as prices elsewhere remained flat.

The Manchester-Nashua, New Hampshire metro area took the crown as the country’s hottest housing market, according to the report. The Canton-Massillon, Ohio metro area placed No. 20.
