Market Snapshot: The Time to Sell is Now

The Time to Sell is NowWith the second quarter of 2017 well under way, Northwestern Vermont continues to be a sellers’ market with a low inventory of homes for sale in select price ranges. According to the Northwestern Vermont Board of Realtors March 2017 Market Statistics, New Listings are down 24.3% for Single Family properties and 4.4% for Townhouses/Condos compared to March 2016.

Even with demand high and supply low, the average days on market is still 107 days for Single Family properties and 120 days for Townhouses/Condos. For properties in the mid-price range of $250,000-$400,000, we are seeing multiple offers for well located, staged and marketed properties.

The Federal Reserve decided this week to not raise interest rates beyond 0.75-1%, however analysts do project rates to go up at the Fed’s next meeting on June 13 and 14. Today 30-year fixed interest rates are hovering around 3.8-4.1%. With a low housing inventory in Northern Vermont, and the prospect for interest rates to increase more this year, you can position yourself as a seller strong and get the most for your home.

Handsome Colchester home

Sitting back from the road, with a huge flat front lawn, this handsome contemporary home has ample room for work, play, entertaining, and everything else. The updated kitchen is super convenient and features recessed lighting, gas range, electric wall oven, and stainless steel appliances. It’s situated in the middle of activity with an adjoining dining area, a sizable walkout deck and a large storage pantry.

The most compelling feature of the house is a huge family room with vaulted ceilings, terrific eastern light and warm woodwork throughout. A cozy loft above the family room makes a great retreat and can be used for an office or playroom. The fieldstone fireplace looks rustic, but is decidedly useful, and can be accessed from both the family room and the living room.

Boasting a first floor laundry room, plenty of finished and unfinished basement space, a large deck off the kitchen, and a good-sized mud room, this home is the ideal fusion of style and comfort.
