Even as the number of new listings to the market decline, a variety of properties remain for buyers to choose from – and a bit more time to contemplate a purchase.

Buyers are attracted to the more rural feel and affordable home prices in Addison County. While the median price of single-family homes jumped to $275,000 during the 2nd quarter, the median price has been fairly stable since 2018. Middlebury, Vergennes, Bristol and Ferrisburgh topped the list for the number of closed sales so far in 2020.

As travel restrictions for out of state buyers loosen, sales of homes, including lakefront property in Addison County, should recover. Historically, the area accounts for 12-15% of the luxury home sales in northwest Vermont.

The number of single-family homes sold in 2019 jumped 10% in Addison County, while newly listed properties and sales prices remained stable. Condominium sales rose from 17 units in 2018 to 27 units in 2019. An increase in condos available fueled this growth along with more affordable price points and ease of maintenance.  

Buyers are attracted to the relative affordability compared to neighboring Chittenden County – along with the quaint Vermont feel of restaurants, galleries and small shops that make up the downtowns of many of the towns in Addison County.

Topping the list of closed sales in the county were Middlebury, Bristol, Ferrisburgh, and Vergennes.

A 25% increase in homes available for purchase in Vergennes resulted in a 23% rise in single family homes sold through the year. Undoubtedly, Vergennes’ thriving downtown and proximity to Lake Champlain appeal to many buyers including Millennials searching for a work-play lifestyle.
Cornwall, Panton and Weybridge lead the county with the highest median sales price.

The number of homes and condos sold so far in 2019 shows healthy gains over the same period last year.  

Buyers are drawn to Addison County’s farm-to-table dining options, art galleries and shops – not to mention close proximity to the lake or the mountains. Starksboro, Bristol, Monkton and Vergennes offer housing options for buyers who are comfortable with an easy commute to Burlington area employers.

An increase in multi-family listings this year, may give more choices to buyers looking for owner-occupied or investment property.

So that we can continue to best serve our customers and clients across the county, this year we opened our Real Estate Sales Center at 268 Main Street in Vergennes.

Although the median price of single-family homes dropped by nearly 7%, this was compared to a 9% increase last year. The bright spot may be the slight increase in newly listed homes after months of sharp declines. With few condominium complexes throughout the county and therefore few sales, the increases in units and prices of sold properties need to be taken in context.

Buyers are drawn to the community amenities of towns that make up Addison County with their farm to table dining options, art galleries and shops – not to mention close proximity to Lake Champlain. Starksboro, Bristol, Monkton and Vergennes offer housing options for buyers working at nearby employers, like Collins Aerospace, or those who are comfortable with an easy commute to Burlington.

So that we can continue to best serve our customers and clients across the county, we opened our Real Estate Sales Center at 268 Main Street in Vergennes this spring. Many great events organized by The Vergennes Partnership such as colored lights on the Vergennes Falls each evening, City Band Concerts every Monday through the summer, or the Eat on the Green Food & Musical Festival in September – are just steps from our office.

Inventory of homes has stabilized – even posting a slight increase in early 2019. Single home sales increased while median and average sale prices declined.

Due to the relatively low number of transactions during the 1st quarter, it may be too early to draw conclusions. Addison County continues to draw buyers who may be working in Chittenden County – but see affordability and quality of life in Addison as desirable.

Responding to seller and buyer demand in the county, we are pleased to announce that we are opening a Real Estate Sales Center on Main Street in Vergennes. While we are not new to the area, our Vergennes location expands our presence in Addison County and extends the level of service we are able to give our clients.

The number of single-family homes sold in 2018 remained stable while new listed properties declined. This resulted in a slight uptick in the median sale price. Condominium sales are minimal in this county – a total of 17 sales in 2018 – therefore statistics can be affected by a slight a change.

Buyers are attracted to the relative affordability compared to neighboring Chittenden County – along with the quaint Vermont feel of restaurants, galleries and small shops that make up the downtowns of many of the towns in Addison County.

Topping the list of closed sales in the county were Middlebury, Bristol, Ferrisburgh, Monkton and Vergennes. Construction in downtown Middlebury through 2019 may be a factor in the market, however Middlebury College will always be a strong draw.

Sales in Vergennes increased by 18% possibly affected by a 14% increase in homes available for purchase. Starksboro is an appealing option for home buyers with an affordable option median price of $238,750.

New Haven posted one of the highest increases in median price – at $333,000 a 42% increase over 2017. This increase is a result of an increase in the number of units sold – which rose by 50%. Median price is defined as the sale price of the property in the middle of the roster of sold properties – therefore a jump from 10-15 units sold will push the median price up while not necessarily equating to an appreciation in overall home values.

Buyers are attracted to the quaint, Vermont feel and vibrant downtowns of Bristol, Vergennes and Middlebury – along with the more affordable housing options in Addison County.

The Median and Average Sale price for single family homes rose a modest 3% likely affected by fewer properties for sale as well as the sale of 5 luxury property in Addison County so far in 2018.
Still, with a median sale price of $265,000 and days on market (DOM) of 4 months, buyers may find their dream home at a reasonable price without the pressure of multiple offers so common in Chittenden County.

Land sales continue to increase year over year as homeowners opt to build when options for existing homes remains challenging.
