Vermont Market Update: October 2021

Vermont Real Estate Market Report October 2021 Graphic

The U.S. housing market remains robust, with strong activity reported across both rental and residential housing fronts. Single-family rent prices are increasing rapidly, as demand for single-family housing and inventory constraints forces some buyers to rent, increasing competition and pushing rents up across the nation. Meanwhile, sales of new construction single-family homes recently hit a six-month high, rising 14% to a seasonally adjusted rate of 800,000, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

New Listings decreased 20.6 percent for single-family homes and 19.0 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Pending Sales decreased 1.9 percent for single-family homes and 17.5 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Inventory decreased 43.3 percent for single-family homes and 43.2 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

The Median Sales Price was up 16.5 percent to $396,000 for single-family homes and 2.7 percent to $285,000 for townhouse-condo properties. Days on Market decreased 25.0 percent for single-family homes and 31.4 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Months Supply of Inventory decreased 43.5 percent for single-family homes and 36.4 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

As temperatures drop, existing home sales continue to be plentiful, buoyed by strong demand, low interest rates, and a slight uptick in new listings in recent months, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. With interest rates inching upward, and experts expecting further rate increases on the horizon, motivated buyers are hoping to lock in their home purchases to take advantage of what are still historically low rates.
