The Bridgewater, Vermont real estate market was solid in 2019 with eight (8) sales of single-family homes in 2019, up slightly from six (6) in 2018.
Inventory of single-family homes in Bridgewater reached its lowest point at the end of 2018 and continues to be very limited. Specifically, there were just eleven (11) homes actively listed on December 31, 2019, down from a post-recession high of twenty-five (25) that were listed on the same date in 2010. Of the eleven (11) houses listed for sale, just two were listed for under $400,000, pointing to the very limited availability of more affordable properties.
In regard to the real estate market in the region as a whole, the Greater Woodstock Market Area, which comprises Woodstock and the six towns that touch it (including Bridgewater), had one of its best years in well over a decade. In total, there were 242 sales of single-family homes, nearly matching the record-setting 244 sales that transacted in 2017. The town of Woodstock was the leader in the 2019 strength, but several of the area towns – namely Hartland, West Windsor and Bridgewater – also saw more homes sold/closed in 2019 than in 2018. Supply of single-family homes continued to decline for nearly every town in the market.
