If you’ve been a renter in the Burlington area you know that the rental market is competitive. Rental applications can make you feel as though you are applying to College. Even stellar credit doesn’t guarantee you’ll get in the door. The high cost of renting in the area is not in your imagination either. Based on “Out of Reach 2013,” a report released by National Low Income Housing Coalition and the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition Vermont is the 15th most expensive state in the country for renters.
Perhaps this is why in the first Quarter of 2013 sales of multi-family homes jumped 27% across Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties. A 43% surge in multi-family sales in Chittenden County lead the way. This comes as no surprise to those who watch the Market. Burlington boosts a vacancy rate of 1.5% while the rest of the country averages 7.4%!
