As we head through November, it's time for a detailed exploration of the Grand Isle County real estate trends in our local community. We are experiencing a seasonal slow down which is expected for the Vermont real estate market. October has brought forth intriguing shifts in the market, and Coldwell Banker Islands Realty here to guide you through the key statistics, offering insights for both buyers and sellers.

Median Sales Price: Setting New Heights

October has unfurled a remarkable surge in the Median Sales Price, reaching $690,000. This not only signifies a substantial 70% increase from the previous month but also marks a staggering 77% uptick from October 2022. For sellers, this indicates a robust market, showcasing the potential for favorable returns on property investments. Buyers, it highlights the need for strategic considerations and, perhaps, a prompt response to secure desired properties in a competitive landscape.

Closed Sales: A Quiescent Phase

While Closed Sales have experienced a 33% decrease from the previous month and a 41% decline from October 2022, it's important to recognize that market fluctuations are inherent. Sellers may need to be patient, ensuring that their pricing strategies align with the current dynamics. Buyers, on the other hand, may find themselves in a market that allows for more thoughtful decision-making and negotiation.

List Price Received: Navigating the Negotiation Waters

At 98%, the List Price Received metric demonstrates a slight uptick of 0.8% from the previous month. Sellers, this emphasizes the importance of accurate pricing strategies to maximize returns. For buyers, it's a reminder to approach negotiations diligently, leveraging market conditions to secure favorable terms.

Active Inventory: A Closer Look at Market Dynamics

The Active Inventory, currently standing at 30, reflects a 3.2% decrease from the previous month but marks a notable 36% increase from October 2022. This metric plays a crucial role for both buyers and sellers. For sellers, understanding the inventory landscape aids in setting competitive prices. Buyers benefit by gauging the availability of options and potential negotiation power.

Months Supply of Inventory: Balancing Act

With a Months Supply of Inventory at 3, there's been a 45% increase from the previous month and a striking 131% surge from October 2022. Sellers, this may suggest a market that is becoming more balanced. Buyers, take note of the increased supply, offering you more choices and potentially influencing negotiations.

Seasonal Slowdown: Embracing Market Dynamics

In the midst of these compelling metrics, it's crucial to acknowledge the influence of the seasonal ebb and flow of the Vermont real estate landscape. As the leaves change color and the temperatures dip, the market is exhibiting a characteristic seasonal slowdown.
