The Quarter Report – 3rd Quarter was published today, with pleasing results. The overall real estate market has continued strong growth throughout 2015 while being up almost 15% over 2014 for the upper valley. The main reason for the overall growth is that single family homes just outside of the Town of Crested Butte and south all the way into the City of Gunnison have all seen large sales volume growth in between 43% to 173%. Also all segments of vacant land and lots have seen huge growth from 2014. The segments that have leveled off or even dipped are single family homes, condos and townhomes in both the towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte.
The fourth quarter of 2015 looks to level off quite a bit compared to the high sales volume numbers that happened during late summer and early fall. We forecast that our local real estate market will end up with a growth between 5 and 10 percent.
