2016 Year-End Real Estate Market Report

Welcome to the Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate Market Report. Our 2016 Year-End examination of the real estate market in the Stowe area uses market-wide data based on transactions that closed in 2016 in the Multiple Listing Service; and compares them to sales that took place during 2015.  

In 2016 the Stowe area market generally reflects that of the broader market throughout Vermont, and much of the nation. The housing market in general remains one of the strongest underpinnings of the overall economy.

Residential sales were back on the rise, and by the end of Q4, they were up by as much as 28%. The total was 91, as compared to 71 by the end of 2015.  This is the largest number of residential sales seen since 2004, with the sub $500K price range leading the way with 56% of the market share.

The overall inventory for Stowe residences dipped again, this time by 23%, which equates to an 8 months’ supply.  The lack of inventory varies though, in different price ranges, which will be addressed in more detail further into this report.

Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate, once again, holds the largest market share of sales of any single office in the Stowe area. Whatever your real estate needs are in the coming year, CBCRE is the market and technology leader, and we are always there to share every resource we have available, for you to benefit from.

We hope you find our Year-End Report helpful; and welcome any questions you may have regarding it.

Stowe Area 2nd Quarter Real Estate Market Report

Welcome to the Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate market report; our 2nd Quarter 2016 examination of the real estate market in the Stowe area.  This report uses market-wide data based on transactions that closed in during the 1st 6 months of 2016 in the Multiple Listing Service, and compares them to sales that took place during the same period of 2015.

Just as our local communities have seen recent growth and enhanced vibrancy, so too has the residential real estate market. New businesses, restaurants and attractions have been popping up in Stowe and beyond, including The Alchemist opening its doors to their new acclaimed brewery, the new Adventure Center at Stowe Mountain Resort, and MOCO (Morrisville Food Co-op), scheduled to open soon.

Many have wondered whether the increase in residential sales that we saw after the first quarter would continue. We are happy to report that they have, in Stowe and the rest of Lamoille County.

Stowe Area 1st Quarter 2016 Market Report

Welcome to the Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate Market Report.  This  1st quarter report of 2016,  is an examination of the real estate market in the Stowe area, using market-wide data based on transactions in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and comparing them to that of the 1st quarter of 2015. 

The winter of 2016 will be memorable in many respects, most notably due to the lack of snow; and unseasonably mild weather.   Skiers and riders have enjoyed some of the best spring conditions though, as snow continued to fall in April.  The mountain plans to operate lifts

 on Mt. Mansfield, until April 24th this year – long after most area resorts have closed.  Signs of spring have been welcome, including a continuation o

f the maple sugaring season, which saw one of the strongest and lengthiest seasons in years.

In the world of real estate, supply and demand is still largely the story, both nationwide and locally.  Finding the right property can be challenging,due to continued shortages of inventory.  The overall demand for buying is solid, so in many regards, it is a good time for sellers to list their homes.  With rental amounts outpacing mortgage payment expense, and availability of low interest rates, it is also a good time for buyers to be in the market.

Real Estate Market Report - Year End 2015

Welcome to the Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate market report; our 2015 Year-End examination of the real estate market in the Stowe area.  This report uses market-wide data based on transactions that closed in 2015 in the Multiple Listing Service, and compares them to sales that took place during 2014.

In 2015 the Stowe market generally reflects that of the broader market throughout Vermont, and much of the nation.   Many analysts have reported a continuation of a “level-headed market”; much of which is probably due to very low levels of inventory. We are seeing one of the lowest levels of residential and land inventory, in recent memory.  Most of which is seen in the lower price ranges.  Despite these factors, the continuation of low interest rates, steady job growth, and buyer demand, should keep real estate sales heading in the right direction.  Sales in general, show continued stability.

FALL in Love with Your House Again

This fall, FALL in love with your house again! Feeling blah about your home, not looking forward to a long winter staring at the same four walls and tired decor? For $10,000 combined these 3 projects can improve how you feel about your home.

  • PUT ON A NEW FACE. Give your kitchen cabinets new life with paint and more modern fixtures. Want to step it up a notch? Consider new doors and drawer covers from a cabinetmaker or doormaker. Refacing the average size kitchen runs around $6,000.
  • LET THERE BE MORE LIGHT. Dark spaces are a common complaint among homeowenrs. Try tublar skylights for small spaces such as bathrooms and hallways and are far more affordable than full skylights. Four tubes installed will set you back a mere $2,000. Good investment for more natural light.
  • TIDY UP. Invest in built-in organization systems to help declutter key problem areas: master bedroom closet, laundry room and pantry. Expect to spend around $1,000 for these space saving additions. Then consider hiring a professional organizer to help purge and tidy up what you decide to keep ($50-$150 and hour).
