Crested Butte Collection Newsletter

August 2020 Edition


The real estate market continues to flourish with the influx of visitors to the valley wishing to escape the crowded metro areas. While many of our favorite festivals have been cancelled or changed to virtual events, there are still plenty of great outdoor activities to enjoy. CBMR is running one lift providing hiker access to the mountain and many of the local bike and jeep rentals and outfitting companies are open for business. The weather has been fantastic so getting outdoors is everyone’s choice to deal with uncertain times.

The overall residential real estate has nearly caught up to last year’s sales and is only down $1.5mil in volume from this time last year. That’s after missing March’s sales due to the lockdown, one of our business month’s of the year. $72.5mil is currently under contract showing that the market picked up dramatically last month. The average sales price of $807,784 is up 7% from $751,193 and inventory struggles to increase as we experience the current buyer frenzy.

From the CB News:
Crested Butte finance director Rob Zillioux told the Town Council this week that the Real Estate Transfer Tax is ahead of last year at the same date but there have been fewer transactions. He reported that as of June 30 the town had collected $824,054 in net RETT. That compared to $785,780 for the same period in 2019. “That is with fewer transactions this year,” Zillioux explained. “Sales prices are skyrocketing.”

Current market conditions

With the slow start to the year amid COVID-19 concerns we were all skeptical as to what would happen to the Crested Butte real estate market. However, real estate sales have recovered nicely with residential volume through July totalling $84.8mil. This is down only $1.5mil from the same time period last year. The number of transactions is also down (105 compared to 115) but the average sales price is up again, $807,784 compared to $751,193 last year, a 7% increase. Currently another 81 properties are under contract totaling $72,505,400, 27 of which are listed at $1mil or more including this equestrian property in Danni Ranch for $3,550,000.
