Crested Butte Collection Newsletter
October 2019 Edition
October is here and we are all taking in the beautiful fall foliage which came late but it sticking around for a good amount of time. Town has quieted down as we take a breather and head into the off-season. While the days are getting shorter, and the nights colder, there is still some time to get out and enjoy hiking and biking prior to the snow settling in. If you love empty trails and brisk temps now is the time for a visit.
The overall residential real estate market continues to be in a lull and comes in behind last year by more than $10mil in sales volume. Another $45mil is currently under contract, not quite enough to catch up to last year’s sales. The average sale price is up again, $805,643 from $607,280 last year, a 25% increase. Inventory is down with 7 less listings on the market.
