Vermont listing prices are rising at a very healthy pace, but homes are sitting on the market. This suggests sellers might be too ambitious with their listing prices, and that those listing prices might see a dip or stall in the near future— especially in light of the state’s moderate inventory.

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.
