Every day, my team of agents helps people relocate to Connecticut. One of the number one questions we are asked is, what does it cost to live here? First, let's talk about the obvious: the cost of housing.
One of the first things you're going to need to decide is if it’s better to buy or rent here in Morris, Connecticut. You also need to figure out what kind of housing you need. Do you want a single-family or multifamily home? Are you just looking for a piece of land?
The price of housing varies depending on your answers to these questions. If you have any additional questions, I can send you more detailed information. For now, here are some general pointers. The average three-bedroom single-family home here in Morris is roughly $454,000.

In addition to housing costs, we do have some logical costs most people don't expect. Did you know you have to pay an annual tax on your car? Yes, you have to pay property tax on your vehicle here in Connecticut.
