March 2014 Edition

Town Tidbits

February continued to raise snow levels by dumping more than 7 feet, keeping town hopping with happy tourists. March is forecasted to bring more, as it’s our snowiest month. As spring breakers arrive, the town and the mountain are gearing up with entertaining events, including:

  • Al Johnson Telemark Ski Race on March 23
  • Comedy Works at the Center for the Arts on March 15
  • Ski Town Breakdown on March 22
  • 2nd Annual Silver Queen Pageant on March 30

On the 2014 Horizon

As mentioned last month, I’ll be launching a new mobile-friendly website this year. So it’s a great opportunity to listen to what you, my clients, really value in a real estate website. Please take a moment to answer these 7 questions and thank you in advance!

What's Happening in the Market

We’ve seen the total number of transactions year to date decrease by 8 as compared to a year ago, including a drop in the average and median prices.  In the meantime, average pricing per finished square foot has increased compared to the same timeframe, from $210 to $251, while the average reduction off of the list price has also increased.

Some speculate a frigid, harsh winter throughout the rest of the country has kept potential buyers within the walls of their warm houses and from venturing out to Colorado, while others think the incredible ski conditions have kept other potential buyers on the mountain. That downward trend, however, is expected to change as we head into the summer months, where land sales also become more of a focus.
