Current Market Conditions for February 2019

There are currently 8 single family homes over $1 million under contract, 3 of which are our listings and 2 of which we are assisting both Buyers and Sellers. This is 3 more than last month. Condos and single family homes under a million remain in high demand and continue to go under contract quickly. 


Single family home sales are up 25% over January, 2018. Condos on the other hand are down 57% over last January’s sales. This may be due to increased prices and Buyers need time to adjust to the new price points. 

We experienced 5 single family homes and 3 condo/town home sales in the upper valley in January. These 8 sales totaled $6,873,000, and were down from 11 the previous month. Sales ranged from a one bedroom condo in the Evergreen Condos selling for $234,000 to a beautiful home in Crested Butte for $1,350,000.

Land sales continue to slow due to it being winter with only 8 sales in January, down 3 from last month, totaling $3,409,500. Sales prices ranged from a Crested Butte South lot for $72,000 to a 1-acre commercial lot 3.5 miles south of Crested Butte which sold for $1,900,000.
