Vermont real estate trends (May 2022)
From fresh maple syrup to sharp cheddar — not to mention Ben and Jerry's ice cream — Vermont is known for its artisanal foods. A quintessential New England state with an independent spirit, Vermont has stunning foliage in autumn and dozens of snowy ski slopes all winter long.
Notable areas in Vermont include Burlington and Montpelier, but even the state's largest cities are relatively small. Quaint towns such as Norwich, Charlotte, and Shelburne are popular destinations for families due to their small town feel and outstanding public schools.
If you're thinking of buying or selling in Vermont, these Vermont housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.

Frequently asked questions about Vermont real estate
Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Vermont?
It is currently a seller’s market in Vermont, but things are cooling off quickly. Ambitious sellers have been listing their properties for too high a price, causing homes to sit on the market for longer periods. However, each city and town has its own trends, so it’s best to consult a real estate agent to figure out the state of your local market.
Is Vermont a good state to invest in real estate?
Investing in Vermont real estate is a good idea, especially in a city like Burlington, where there's consistent demand for housing. To maximize your investment, take the time to prepare a financial plan and research up-and-coming neighborhoods. Find out more in our guide to real estate investing.
Is it a good time to buy a house in Vermont?
Although listing prices are a bit higher than normal, it might be a good time to buy a house in Vermont right now. The slow market and high inventory can help you negotiate a better price. Plus, low mortgage rates will help you save thousands over the years. To find out all your options, work with one of the top real estate agents in Vermont.
