Market Update: February 2020

The Northwestern Vermont Board of Realtors has released the February 2020 real estate market update for Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties. 

As February comes to an end we continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on the real estate market. It is hard to predict/tell at this time the true impact it will have on our world. With the stock market decline bringing low interest rates it brought good news to buyers and homeowners interested in refinancing. 

Overall buyer demand continues to be strong with Pending Sales increasing by 30.7% and Closed Sales increased 3.4% for Single Family homes and 63% for Townhouse/condos. Homes for sale have decreased 26.6%. 

The recently released January Showing Time Showing Index® saw a 20.2% year-over-year increase in showing traffic nationwide. With showings comes home sales. It will be important for us to monitor the effects COVID-19 will have on the overall economy. If you have any questions or concerns about the real estate market at this time please contact us.
