I am writing for my daughter who teaches at Yale and no longer wants to live in New Haven.

She has about $250,000 to spend on a condo.

I have never been to Milford but have been told it is nice.

Would appreciate any advice on Milford and where she should look for a condo. Thanks.

I have been a lifelong resident and there really is not a bad part to Milford. It is convenient to Bridgeport and New Haven, and also about 45 minutes to New York. If she is looking for a Condo, the city is split into parts. There is the downtown area, Devon and Woodmont. Woodmont end (closer to West Haven) has been kept up with the times more than Devon and as such, home prices are a small bit higher towards Woodmont.

As far as shopping goes, they recently added a Target, Circuit City, Lowes and Walmart. There is little in shopping Milford does not have.

The city has never been a big area for crime (although car break-ins has been an increasing issue lately).

Plenty of public and private beaches. My wife fell in love with Milford (she is from the New London area) after I took her to a couple of the beaches.

I would love to try to answer direct questions you have on Milford, so feel free to let me know.

The commute to Yale is extremely easy as I did a simular commute going to Southern CT State U for my college years.

Milford is a great small suburban city with a lot of different housing options. Not sure what your daughter will get for $250k there. check realtor.som for listings in that price range. Jay

Hi,

As a Milford Resident for over 19 years there are many condo options in Milford. Foxwood is one that comes to mind for that price range. It is near the post road closer to Orange so it would be a easy commute to I-95. Prices are in the high $100K to mid $200K depending on size and condition.

You could check out CTMLS - Home where you can search all CT listings..

Default Look for the house listed on Cinnomon Road

Hi,

Look for the house on Cinnomon Road
This complex is full of young people who are starting out with kids etc. There is a house for sale on Cinnomon Road for $250000..if you could get it, it would be best bang for your buck. The problem is houses gets snached away pretty quickly in this complex and you won't believe this , but you can check on zillow...condos here have maintained their prices...actually it is stable at 250000$ for right now. I am a young milford resident with a wife and a 1 year old son, we just love it here...close to shopping, beaches and major highways, rail....nice downtown , its an hidden jewel if you ask me...

If you have any more direct question, do let me know...

Good Luck,CoolStrom

Just a word of caution...Southwestern Connecticut has opted not to participate in the Statewide MLS or its public site (ctreal.com). This might change in the future.
