I am a realtor in New Canaan and would be happy to provide you with that info as well as a market report that profiles the current market. If you are looking for information on a specific property that information is available on the town's website, Just click on the property appraisals button and follow directions. If you have any other questions you can reach me at

The New Canaan Advertiser will post weekly home sales, however, it will not provide a comprehensive look at the past year sales, prices, locations, square footage, etc. Your Realtor can run a search that will provide answers to all categories that you request. It is simple to do, and as your Realtor has access to the Multiple Listing Service, it will be up-to-date and complete.

There is no link on the town website for that information.
Nor can you find it in the appraisal database. There it is one property at a time.
Last year exactly 300 single family homes sold in New Canaan.
You must ask your realtor to do a search on a date range and produce for you a list of the homes that sold and it requires a "custom report", one line per entry. It will be about six pages, about 50 lines per page, and you can get on that report other information such as square feet, age and property assessment.

There are multiple ways to get a list of solds in your area.
1. Town Hall has all the property transfer information
2. Sites like Trulia and Zillow have basic information to give you a rough idea.
3. Some towns have online information via the Tax Assessors Dept.
4. Most professional Realtors will assist you in answering questions and have the best knowledge of what has sold in your area and more importantly WHY. Many homes have a story and photos on websites don't reveal exactly why one house sold for more than another. For example, updates will increase a homes pricing and location. Homes with wetlands can sell for less.

The houses sold on the MLS have to be checked against both the New Canaan MLS and the CMLS. There is no direct public access to those sites, but we'd be happy to provide you with the information. Additionally there are houses sold "off the market" and recorded, as noted below, at town hall or via the Commercial Record. There is also some information on pending sales and year-to-date sales. Either e-mail me at or reach us through our web site.

Sam, if you go to you will find a comprehensive Market Report which is put out on a quarterly basis. It will give you a look at not only New Canaan, but the entire state of Connecticut. If you are looking for more specific information, I have several spreadsheets (specific to New Canaan) which you might find useful.

Sam, if you just want a quick overview of the properties that were sold last year in New Canaan, CT you can go to www. and look under "Sold Homes" - a button along the top of the page. It will prompt you set up an account but this is nothing more than your email address, and once you do that the site will show you recently sold homes for the past year in the town that you choose. It's an easy way to get an overview.

Hi Sam, the information you want is public information, I don't think New Canaan town hall has a website presence that gives you that info with a click of a button, you can go to town hall and there is a book at the assessors office which usually lists all of the transfers of property. You can also contact a realtor who can access a list from the MLS and actually email it to you that will show you all of the sales in all price points. Hope this helps!

Sam, I am not quite sure on your state laws, but I would suggest one of two means:

- Go to the County Tax office.
- Speak to a Realtor for assistance.

Depending on the size of your town, the list could be quite extensive.

Best of luck,
