What You’ll Pay
Home prices in Rowayton range from around $500,000 to about $7 million, said Kim Cannon Hyde, an agent with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. Lower priced properties tend to be to the north, near the train station, she said, while “you are going to pay a premium to be on the water, and you are going to pay a premium to be in town.”
As in many areas, prices have jumped during the pandemic — “by about 32 percent from the end of 2020 to the end of 2021,” Ms. Gatt said. “Inventory is historically low. People are just waiting for things to come on.”
