Vermont home sales continue to rebound in 2013

Home SalesThe number of homes sold in Vermont in 2013 climbed 16 percent compared to 2012, with virtually all counties contributing to the rebound. Only Orleans County experienced fewer home sales in 2013 than in 2012.

Median sales prices statewide rose by 2% in 2013 to $200,000—an historical high point that the state reached before in 2007-2008. The state’s higher median sales price was caused almost entirely by rising prices in the Burlington- area counties of Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle and Addison. Median primary home prices in the rest of the state remained stable or fell.

To find out more, check out the Vermont Housing Data website which was updated this morning with final home sales information for 2013 for each of the state’s counties and towns. In addition to summaries of all primary homes, the site contains easy to access information on home sale trends by property type, including mobile homes, condominiums and vacation homes.
