While it lacks a major city, Connecticut is well distributed by population density, resulting in, relative to its size, a large area of economic activity.  The dominant industry in CT is insurance representing a $16bn payroll, more than $3.5bn more than the next largest industry.  However, bioscience, media and large scale manufacturing also play a key part in the state’s economy.

Some real estate stagnation has created significant opportunities to purchase properties below market value, and has also increased the margins associated with rehab projects.
