The unexpected boom that occurred in our real estate market in 2020 continued its upward trend into 2021. The overall number of residential properties sold in Breckenridge increased from 798 to 812 while Summit and Park Counties combined saw an increase from 2666 to 2702.

What makes these statistics even more remarkable is that they are coupled with historically low inventory even during the busier selling seasons. More buyers are buying and more sellers are selling. Demand is high and supply is low.

Has anything gone down? Yes- days on market are down! Properties sell so quickly that inventory levels don’t appear to change. 

Is it a great time to sell? Yes! Sellers are seeing huge returns, even on homes recently purchased in the past 12-24…

Leaves have fallen and temperatures have dropped. So is the Breckenridge and Summit County real estate market dropping as well? It’s that time of year when fewer people are relocating and fewer people are spending time driving through neighborhoods with wishful thinking. However, as of October 2021, the Rocky Mountain high country remains a seller's market. The most recent Summit County MLS statistics indicate signs of balancing but not dropping or cooling.

The numbers for Fall 2021 remain the same as Summer and are even going up in some categories. 

An increase in active listings is usually a good sign for buyers and they are up, but only  by a slight margin with a current 91 active listings for Breckenridge and 234 for Summit County. An increase…

Is October still the off season? This time last year, the number of visitors on Main Street looked more like early summer. Occupancy in October 2022 will help determine whether it was a one-time fluke from pent-up travel demand or a reflection of Breckenridge’s growing popularity. We suspect the latter in combination with steady growth in the Front Range where the majority of our second homeowners and visitors originate. Regardless of season or changes brought about by time, a desire to own a home in the High Country of Breckenridge and Summit County remains strong. If your dream home or investment property is on the list below, give us a call! We’re always here to help you find or sell a mountain property, big or small.

On September 28, the Breckenridge Town Council voted unanimously to place a cap of 2,200 short-term rental licenses on non-exempt properties within the Breckenridge town limits. There are currently approximately 3000 non-exempt short-term licenses within town limits (not including unincorporated Summit County). No current licenses will be revoked. License renewal fees will be increased to discourage homeowners from “holding on” to licenses that are not being used.

Properties exempt from the cap include hotels, lodges and condominiums with 24/7 separate front desk and security staff. Refinements to the cap, such as allowing short-term licenses to be passed on to family members, will be part of the discussion at the next meeting on October 2.
