Market Update and Web Activity

Return to article list
September 2021 Market Update - August was very active for Picket Fence sales, and Times on the Market were brisk!  All residential offers came in within  three weeks for all counties, with the exception of one (with a million $ home that held firm for its price).

Most residential sales received their asking prices during August, across all counties. Chittenden county homes are still receiving over their asking price in almost all Picket Fence sales, with an 102.8% average Sales Price / Asking Price during August.  This is a very good sign that market demand remains strong.

Typically the market picks up in September each year after the July and August summer lull.  All signs point to this happening this year, too!

Following are the Time on the Market averages per county over the past three months:
