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.
