Why property prices are so high in Hartford County, Connecticut

Venture One Realty has been seeing that people are moving out of New York City at an astonishing rate. Fearful of the COVID-19 pandemic, NYC residents are fleeing their homes in the city, and finding refuge in the safe, and more affordable Hartford County, CT.
For the last several months all over Connecticut, especially Hartford County, property prices have been rising, and rising, and rising. The simple supply and demand principle is beautifully at work for those who wish to take advantage of it.
Residents who are moving out of New York City, are doing it now, not later. NYC already has over 13,000 vacant apartments.
