BURLINGTON VT REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT
While the median sale price rose 8.6%, overall residential transactions slipped by 27.8%. 42 single family homes sold during the second quarter, down almost a third from a year earlier. Condominium sales slipped as well to 34 transactions from 42 a year earlier, although their median sale price jumped by 25%. New residential listings were down by 4.2% this quarter. Given the lack of inventory and strong demand for housing, homeowners required an average of only 52 days to market their properties in the second quarter, down from 89 days a year earlier. That significant decline indicates that buyers are quickly moving on desirable properties. View Burlington VT Homes for sale here!
