Market Conditions

New listings are down 59%, while under-contracts are down 53%. Months supply of inventory is at 5 for Crested Butte and 6 for Mt. Crested Butte (if no new homes came on the market, in 5 or 6 months, inventory would be at zero). Our market has slowed, and the number of sales is down. I’m seeing an increase in inventory. It’s a great time for a buyer to get into the market. Rental income continues to be strong, making your mountain home a great investment.

For more market stats, please see our First Quarter Market Report.
