Our Vermont Real Estate Update – August 2017

The Northwestern Vermont Board of Realtors (NVBR) has released its market statistics for August 2017. The information is collected directly from the New England Real Estate Network and covers Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle Counties. They noted the following for the month of August in their report:

  • New Listings were down 3.7 percent for Single Family homes and decreased 18.5 percent for Townhouse-Condo properties.
  • Pending Sales increased 16.1 percent for Single Family homes but decreased 1.5 percent for Townhouse-Condo properties.
  • The median sales price was up 10.7 percent to $292,500 for Single Family homes and 4.6 percent to $224,950 for townhouse-condo properties.
  • Closed sales increased 3.3 percent for Single Family properties and decreased 12.3 percent for townhouse- condo properties.
  • Average days on market decreased 28.3 percent or 81 days for Single Family homes and decreased 23.7 percent or 71 days for the townhouse-condo market.
    Month’s supply of inventory decreased 20 percent, or 5.6 months for Single Family units and decreased 20.0 percent, or 3.2 months for townhouse-condo units.

Chittenden County: We’re finishing up the end of the summer heat wave here – and yesterday was the last day of 90 degrees. So by the time you see this it should be back down to normal fall weather. We’re happy to report that August real estate results were as hot as it’s been since the spring season started. New Listings are even with last year for the month of August, and we’re down by around 100 listings for the year in Chittenden County. However, there has still been a total of around 1,200 listings for buyers to choose from. There has been a lot of talk about low inventory, and that is true in some categories but overall Chittenden County has had a reasonable year so far for buyers.

On the Pending side, August was an awesome month. Properties going under contract were up 16% compared to last August and that’s continuing a trend that we’ve seen for months now. It was a slow winter last year because of the snow, and we’ve been picking up the slack since then. For the year, we’re almost even with last year.

Finally, Pending Sales turn into closings, and for the month of August, we’ve continued the trend that we’ve seen for three months in a row and we’re up 3% in August, however we’re still down about 2% for the year. Regardless, we think September and October’s closings are going to be strong and we will probably finish the year up 1% compared to last year. It has been a good solid year, and the fact that there’s been a little less inventory has been helping pricing stay ahead of last year about 5%.

Five Things No One Tells You About Selling Your Home

How are your closets looking? Are they stuffed to the brim with never-used guest towels, old toys, and the fine china you never use?  This is a list of our top five home-selling secrets to help solve these problems.

Here’s a tip: If your closets look like they can’t fit another thing inside, buyers are going to assume your house doesn’t have enough storage. And storage is, oddly, as important to most buyers as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The storage factor is just one thing to consider when selling your home.

And don’t forget, if you are serious about selling this year, it’s important to know how much your home is worth in today’s market and you can find that out on our website here. If you have any questions about buying and selling real estate contact Mike Conroy at 802-363-3356 or mike@conroyandcompany.com.

Our Vermont Real Estate Update – July 2017

The Northwestern Vermont Board of Realtors (NVBR) has released its market statistics for July 2017. The information is collected directly from the New England Real Estate Network and covers Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle Counties. They noted the following for the month of July in their report:

  • New Listings were down 14.5 percent for Single Family homes and decreased 15.1 percent for Townhouse- Condo properties.
  • Pending Sales increased 20.4 percent for Single Family homes and increased 6.6 percent for Townhouse-Condo properties.
  • The median sales price was up 5.1 percent to $279,000 for Single Family homes and 10.4 percent to $240,000 for townhouse-condo properties.
  • Closed sales remained relatively flat for Single Family properties and decreased 8.3 percent for townhouse- condo properties.
  • Average days on market decreased 50 percent or 70 days for Single Family homes and decreased 54.3 percent or 48 days for the townhouse-condo market.
  • Month’s supply of inventory decreased 19.4 percent, or 5.8 months for Single Family units and decreased 20.5 percent, or 3.1 months for townhouse-condo units.

Chittenden County: Last month we talked about how listings were slowing down in Chittenden County. We saw the same thing happen in July – listings were down 15% compared to last July. So for the year inventory is down about 7%, which is causing pricing to go up a little bit. Our pricing in July was up 2% year to date. The median house price is $314,000. Half of the homes that have sold for the year have been over $314,000 and half have been under, and that’s up $8,000 from last year. Closed sales were again off about 3% for year in month of July we’re down about 5%. This is definitely a great time to sell, and with interest rates at record lows for the year, it’s also a great time to buy.
