Market Conditions

New listings are down 14%, while under-contracts are down 22%. Months supply of inventory is at 9 for Crested Butte and 10 for Mt. Crested Butte (if no new homes came on the market, in 9 or 10 months, inventory would be at zero). I’m seeing more price reductions and a lower list to sales price; now is a great time to purchase. Rental income continues to be strong, making your mountain home a great investment.
