The Farmer’s Almanac calls for the winter of 2017/2018 to be warmer than normal with above average precipitation. Heck yeah! That’s a weather prediction we can get behind. Who doesn’t love sunny powder days?

In the slightly more scientific world of Labor and Employment statistics, The July Jobs report also held happy surprises- perhaps the economic version of a sunny powder day. Says Fortune Magazine, “Job growth was solid, but not strong enough to spook the Fed. Wage growth picked up, but not enough to threaten inflation. Discouraged workers began making their way back into the job market, indicating that despite an unemployment rate of just 4.3%, there’s still some slack to fuel future growth. An important milestone was passed: the Hamilton Project

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think the words Festival, Breckenridge and September? Oktoberfest, of course!

Don’t try to wrestle it into something logical. It’s just Oktoberfest. In September. The 8th-10th to be exact. On Main Street. In Breckenridge. Oh, by the way- it’s great. One of the largest Oktoberfest celebrations in the Rocky Mountains, the Breckenridge Oktoberfest marries festival-style outdoor drinking (reportedly 8,000 gallons of beer and wine are poured!) with family fun and live music, and exists in that space when time stands still and life seems free of consequences.

 

Sometimes it snows.
Sometimes it’s sunny and 80.
It’s always high-spirited, well attended and there are snacks that consist of meat on sticks.

What's not to love about a farmers market?

Where else can you shop with a direct view of towering peaks, buy directly from an artist or a farmer, do some yoga on a manicured lawn, listen to live music while supporting local economies.

Summit County is home to several summer markets. On Sundays you'll find the Breckenridge Market at the south end of town at the corner of Park and Main in the Main Street Station courtyard. Live music, fresh bread and flowers, Colorado farms, artisan goods, chair massage and more are all represented in this pleasant shopping experience. Surrounded by brick and mortar shops and restaurants, and nestled right up against the Maggie Pond, the Breckenridge Sunday Market is a great choice for a pleasant Sunday outing.

Of course it does. But can it literally float your boat? Summit County brings to mind snowcapped peaks, ski (and apres) adventures, endless single-track, and all sorts of outdoor activities- but boating? Did you think you would have to trade in your captains hat when you signed up for ski town life? Think again!

All the snow has to go somewhere. Add warmer summer temperatures and bang!  Water.  Just add watercraft.

While white water rafting tends to dominate most of our ideas about water sports at altitude, there is so much more available. Right here in Summit County we have the stunning Lake Dillon, home to two marinas with many boating options. From kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, pontoon boats, canoes, and powerboats to sailboat regattas,

For the first time in six years, the number of active listings in Breckenridge is within statistical striking distance of the previous years numbers. This is great news for buyers, and should help to provide a little breathing room as you search for your dream mountain home. However, we are still in a competitive and fast moving market, best illustrated by the condo and townhome statistics for all areas and all price points; they are selling at an average of 98% sale to list price, and are only on the market for an average of 52.5 days. So while you have a little more to choose from then we trend watchers may have anticipated for June 2017, a strong game plan and knowledgeable broker are still your best bet.

Average prices continued to climb, with
