February Market Statistics-Steamboat Springs, Routt County

As ski season winds up for this year, we are seeing an increase in activity during March spring break season. February was a little slower compared to January, but based on activity in our MLS, we are seeing a surge in activity. Inventory continues to be slim on single family homes in the $400-600k range, so if you are pondering a real estate is the time! As building season nears, if you are considering a lot/land purchase it would be wise to jump on the available inventory and get your architects and builders lined up because they are super busy. 

Melissa Gibson reports on February real estate sales "February saw $34.5M in gross sales volume - a decrease of -24.32% from 2017.  There were 69 transactions in February, down -33% from January 2017.  Year to Date we are down -1.8% in Gross Volume and -11.05% in transactions.  We definitely feel things picking up, so hopefully March numbers will put us back on track. There were 7 upper end sales in February and 2 New Unit Sales. There were a total of 91 loans in February 2018. 58% of purchasers closed with financing at the time of sale while 42% closed with cash."

Happy Halloween and Here's a Market Update-Steamboat Springs

It's that time of the year again, when all of the local goblins dress up and attend the Halloween stroll downtown. Where else can you go, where they close down a highway in order to celebrate Halloween? This event is for kids of all ages and this town has some serious creativity when it comes to clever costumes. Even if you don't dress up, it is super fun to attend.

In real estate news, September was an active month especially for the higher-end sales. Melissa Gibson from Land Title reports:"September was another great month in Routt county with 179 Transactions and $92.6M in Gross Volume.  That is the 3rd largest Gross Sales Volume month we have seen in 9 years!  Attributing to those numbers were 23 sales over $1M!   It is great to see all those upper-end transactions since that part of the market was a bit soft over the summer.

Total sales volume was up by +15% compared to last September, with the YTD. at +21.63%.  Transactions were also up by +1.74% compared to last September, with the YTD. at +7.63%.

Snapshot values are as follows:
Average Price:
Single Family: -2%
Multifamily: +14%
Vacant Land: +51%

There were a total of 166 DOT recordings in September, with 59% of purchasers closing with financing at the time of sale, and with 41% closing with cash.
New Unit Sales were up with 5 in September, compared to 2 August.  Upper End Sales were significantly up with 23 in September compared to 10 in August."
