: Greenwich, Conn. Year-over-year change
Greenwich has catered to many affluent homeowners dating back to its inception in 1640. And while a handful of current listings
top $20 million, there are also a number of entry-level family homes available for under $1 million, something unseen in other communities on this list. No doubt, size is a leveling factor: Greenwich has a population of 61,171 according to the 2010 census. Still the majority of the Greenwich region is extremely wealthy. In 2010, 43.9% of households in the Greenwich School District earned $200,000 or more, compared to 4.2% of households nationwide.
