The Darien, Connecticut Real Estate Market Frenzy Continues with the Sale of 90 Long Neck Point Road
Updated: Aug 25, 2021
Located in Darien, Connecticut, 90 Long Neck Point Road epitomizes the best in scenic, colonial living blended with modern conveniences, all in a picturesque town with plenty to offer residents. The property – which recently sold for $7.5 million – showcases the robust Darien market, which has been highly active throughout the pandemic.
“This is a great example of how the upper end of our market is performing with a premium being paid for move-in condition properties in superb locations,” said Rob Johnson, who represented the seller alongside Eileen Hanford.
The property drew interest from multiple parties and exceeded its pre-pandemic value, which came as no surprise to those involved.
“The pandemic is responsible for igniting an 18-month buying frenzy, leaving a market of high demand and low inventory with prices trending higher in every sector,” explained Eileen. “This home traded at a premium price pre-COVID, during COVID, and post-COVID. It shows why Darien real estate always stands the true test of time.
Eileen helped sell the property in late 2018 for $6.2 million and again in 2019 for $6.4 million—underscoring the market’s potential for continued value.
“We are still seeing a demand for listings, with 51 homes currently listed in Darien vs. pre-COVID-19 numbers of 120-140,” said Nancy Dauk, who represented the buyer in this transaction. “Buyers will pay a premium for a safe sanctuary with all the upgrades, and this home is the perfect example!”
This sale is the latest in a series of notable sales in the area by Brown Harris Stevens, the 2021 market leader in Darien. For more information on 90 Long Neck Point, click here. Visit Nancy, Rob, and Eileen’s pages to stay up to date on current listings.
