A recent report by CNBC’s Shep Smith showed that home sales are up in many vacation towns around the country including Lake Tahoe, Cape Cod, the Jersey Shore. Bridgeport was also included on that list.

The report used data from real estate Redfin to illustrate how the market is booming in vacation destinations as people continue to work from home. The segment highlighted Lake Tahoe, but said the same is happening in “the area around Bridgeport, Connecticut.”
