Our 1st quarter market update provides an overview of the real estate activity in early 2018 throughout northwest Vermont (Addison, Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties). Historically, the first 3 months of the year represent the slowest period for sales. With a smaller number of sales, data within this report can be affected in a positive or negative direction without truly representing a trend in the market.

Median prices rose for single-family homes in northwest Vermont during the first quarter with Addison and Chittenden Counties showing strong increases. Despite a reported decline in median price, which brought pricing back to 2016 levels, Condos still remain a popular option among purchasers looking for ease of maintenance in their home. The number of condos coming on the market increased as a result of new construction in cities such as South Burlington and Williston.

While the number of properties sold dropped year over year, this is a reflection of the limited inventory on the market during the end of 2017 and early 2018. Chittenden County posted an 8% increase in units sold after a weak 1st quarter in 2017.
