I’ve been subscribing to ThinkVermont for the last two years. This whole mass move to the state might be just what they were looking for. Just not all at once.
Given the fact that they’ve been offering people money to move to VT and work remotely I’d say this is exactly what some wanted. I guess there can be too much of a good thing when it happens all at once though, like you said. It has to be way beyond anyone’s wildest projections. There are also two sides to every coin. While it sucks for would be buyers, I bet the recent sellers are thrilled with their sale prices and it’s always good for current owners when property values are high. Why do we only blame the buyers? Obviously the sellers aren’t trying to suppress prices either haha.
