Market Conditions

Real estate continues to be busy. New listings are up 40% and under contracts are up 220%. We currently have $133M under contract. 2020 sales have already surpassed total sales for 2019. Other Colorado resort communities are seeing strong sales as well. I believe this trend will continue as more people are working from home. Buyers may be wondering if now is the time to buy. I believe Crested Butte has the best value and best bang for your buck out of the resort communities. When compared to Aspen, Telluride, and Vail, we are still a fraction of the price. If we fast forward a few years, those that purchased now will be happy they did. 


Vail Resorts Update

Ski passes are still on sale! New this year, Vail resorts will implement a reservation system. Each pass holder can reserve 7 spots throughout the ski season and no limits on week-of reservations. Crested Butte has always been less crowded than other Colorado ski resorts, it’s my hope this reservation system won’t affect us too much.
