2015 Real Estate Year in Review

Montpelier, Barre, U32, Waterbury, Northfield


Number of Sales

Looking at the table below, it’s pretty darn easy to see the clear overall increase in number of sales. Every town in the survey had increases from 2014 to 2015. Some towns (Barre City) had smaller increases, and other towns (holy cow--Waterbury!!) had big increases.

Average Sale Price

The average sale prices have been more of a mixed bag, with the majority of towns posting small decreases. Barre City is on a two year slide, but that’s not going to last long. The number of sales will bolster those prices soon enough!



Taken as an average across the market, prices are remarkably stable. Weighted average sale prices inched up from $203,000 to $205,000. Nothing terribly exciting, although we would generally like to see a little more appreciation.



This Year and Next Year

We’re proud of how many buyers and sellers trusted us to do the job this year.  In 2015, Green Light Real Estate had 72 sales, and sold just over $14 million in real estate. That’s a lot of property, and with everyone here already hitting the ground running early in 2016, we expect both of those numbers to increase substantially this year.



 

Days on the Market

One metric that’s informative is the Days on the Market (DOM). In four of the six market towns in this report, the days on the market went down. That means that houses sold faster in 2015 than in previous years.




Unfortunately, the stories we’ve heard about houses in other parts of the country selling in one or two days just don’t happen here very often. Over the past three years in Central Vermont, it’s taken, on average, almost four months for a house to sell.

Sales by Month

This is one of the most interesting stories. Over the past three years, there appears to be a pretty clear trend. Sales start increasing rapidly in April and May, then they dip a bit, and then spike again in August. The highest numbers of sales have been in August.



That’s interesting to us here at Green Light Real Estate, especially in thinking about what that means. Those April sales are from contracts that were signed in February. And those February buyers were looking in January and February. So, many of those “spring buyers” that we hear about are actually winter buyers!


If you have questions, or if there’s anything that we can help with, call, email, or text.

**MOTIVATED SELLER**32+ acres of private land, yet minutes to town. Fertile, well drained soil (plate work completed) make this property excellent for any type of farming. Roughly 10 open acres (in hay as well as mature nursery stock) and a hobbyist's sugar bush with sugar shack. The house is a beautifully built contemporary farmhouse with high ceilings, tons of windows, and a large front porch.  Built in 1999, it doesn’t leave much to be desired.  There is a loft area (with skylights!) and a third floor that could be completed to create a 4th bedroom or whatever else your heart desires.  The property is complete with a large equipment barn, greenhouse, and chicken coop. Equipment may be available for separate purchase. Perfect property for small agriculture, horses, livestock, pets, and more. Great opportunity to have a peaceful, private, newer home, with great fields, and close to town.
