Home sales in New London County, in southeast Connecticut, were up 25 percent year-on-year in the second quarter as the median price held steady, according to a market report by Prudential Connecticut Realty. In addition to being the U.S. Navy’s primary submarine base, New London is also home to Connecticut College and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. June foreclosures in eastern Connecticut were down compared with May, but a high unemployment rate (8.5 percent in June) will impede the turnaround, reported Norwichbulletin.com. Fiserv and Moody’s Economy.com expect the market to reach bottom early in 2011.
