Market Update: June 2020

The Northwestern Vermont Board of Realtors has released the June 2020 real estate market update for Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties. Below is their market report.

While much of the country was working on a phased reopening of the economy in June, real estate activity continued to strengthen as well. Nationally, June showing activity as tracked by ShowingTime was up notably from the COVID-19 depressed levels in recent months but was also up from June 2019, reflecting pent-up demand by prospective home buyers.

New Listings decreased 0.3 percent for single-family homes and 5.6 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Pending Sales increased 25.4 percent for single family homes and 25.0 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Inventory decreased 36.0 percent for single-family homes and 36.5 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

The Median Sales Price was down 1.7 percent to $325,000 for single-family homes but increased 5.1 percent to $264,000 for townhouse-condo properties. Days on Market decreased 10.1 percent for single-family homes and 28.4 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Months Supply of Inventory decreased 40.0 percent for single-family homes and 42.3 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

While buyer activity continues to be robust, seller activity continues to be a bit softer, with fewer homes being listed for sale than a year ago. Many housing experts believe sellers remain reluctant to list their homes due to continued concerns over COVID-19, which was beginning to see a resurgence in June. Until sellers regain confidence, housing inventory will continue to be constrained during what is expected to be an active summer selling season.

From this recent activity we remain optimistic about the summer real estate market. In the last 2 weeks we have listed 11 properties, 13 properties are under contract and we have had 10 closings. There is high buyer demand and low inventory making this a sellers market. If you’re thinking about selling your home now is the time! We are here to help you reach your goals. If you have any questions about the current market or want to learn more about listing your property please contact us.
