LUXURY & MULTI-FAMILY REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT
This real estate report also provides insight on the Luxury Market and the Multi-Family market. The luxury market saw nine sales of $1-million-plus estates during the first eight months of 2013, with the median sale price tipping to $1.5 million. Of these nine sales, seven were waterfront properties, while the last two were on large estates with mountain views. Seven of the sales were in Chittenden County with Charlotte recording three of those sales. Grand Isle recorded two sales.
In the multi-family market, demands continues to grow resulting in upward pressure on pricing and multiple offers being generated on some properties. The median sale price in Chittenden County increased by 19% over last year. Sales of multi-family units also increased with Burlington leading the way at a 17% increase. Despite these rising sales, inventory remains little changed from last year which may mean higher pricing if demand continues. The extremely low vacancy rate in Burlington compared to the national average continues to be a very strong pull for investors.
