Vermont Market Update: November 2020

See the latest Northwestern Vermont real estate market report presented by NVBR below.

The Northwestern Vermont Board of REALTORS® (NVBR) has released its market statistics for November 2020. The information is derived from data contained in the New England Real Estate Network and covers Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle Counties.

November saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average top 30,000 for the first time, while mortgage rates reached new record lows again. These new records have provided encouragement for buyers to move forward on home purchases, which continued to remain strong overall for the month.

New Listings decreased 2.2 percent for single-family homes and 38.6 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Pending Sales increased 21.5 percent for single-family homes but decreased 9.6 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Inventory decreased 52.2 percent for single-family homes and 55.6 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

The Median Sales Price was up 17.2 percent to $358,500 for single-family homes and 7.0 percent to $259,000 for townhouse-condo properties. Days on Market decreased 30.2 percent for single-family homes and 48.1 percent for
townhouse-condo properties. Months Supply of Inventory decreased 55.6 percent for single-family homes and 56.5 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

Showing activity remains higher than the same period a year ago across most of the country, suggesting that strong buyer demand is likely to continue into what is typically the slowest time of year. With inventory remaining constrained in most market segments, sellers continue to benefit from the tight market conditions.

Island Insights: CBIR Year in Review

Island Insights Guides Champlain Islands' landscape lake champlain sandbar

Happy New Year to our readers! As we begin a new year we are reflecting on 2020 and even though it was a difficult year with many changes we reached many milestones and are grateful to have had another successful year. 

After 26 years we moved into a new office, we rebranded, we launched a social mission to give back to our community, and we welcomed three new people to the CBIR team. The real estate market has kept us on our toes with shutdowns, stay at home orders, and embracing technology to offer virtual services. Despite these changes we have adapted and have continued to provide real estate services safely. 

We could not have reached these accomplishments without the support of our team, clients and community. We are grateful for all of your support. We look forward to the new year!
