Historical Breckenridge Single Family Market Appreciation Report

The real estate market is “normalizing”… What exactly does that mean for our unique Summit County market?

Year to date, the number of real estate sales for 2022 are down 42.31 % in Breckenridge and 32.64% for all of Summit County as compared to the record-breaking sales of 2021. However, bubbles have not burst, as the saying goes, but rather shifted back to a steady yet measurable level similar to what was recorded prior to the COVID 19 Pandemic.

Despite this shift to “normalization,” inventory is still low. The number of active listings in Summit County is 488 versus the mean average of 922 for the third quarters of 2013-2019.

20 Easy Weekend Home Projects for Rentals, Second Homes and Primary Residences

  1.        Update the entrance: Unless your home is fairly new, your entrance may need some attention. It’s a commonly forgotten spot since you only see it coming and going. Freshen it up with new house numbers, a new porch light fixture, a fresh coat of paint or stain on the front door, new door hinges, and a new door mat and/or boot scraper.
  2.        Make over your entry way: Another spot in the home that gets overlooked and becomes “unseen” by familiar eyes. Give it some TLC and make it a place that encourages family and guests to leave all wet or dirty items in the entryway. Clear out entry closets. Install a bench, coat rack, boot trays, and bins for hats and gloves.
