In Addison County, the increase was more modest at 2.7%; however, while the statewide median sales price increased to $229,000, the median home in Addison County sold for $246,500, or nearly 8% higher than the statewide median.

Of 13 homes resold through our program since 2016, the median appraised value was $180,000 and the median net purchase price after grants was $140,000, making homeownership affordable to residents earning about $40,000 per year.
