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

Summer is a short and precious proposition in these parts of Breckenridge and Summit County. Life at altitude comes with high alpine conditions, and for summer that means perfect-temperature crisp clear days and cool nights, low humidity, few bugs, perhaps a late afternoon thunderstorm (we also call this break time, as you'll welcome the excuse to just rest for a few moments) peaks to be summited, trails to be hiked and ridden, golf courses to be played, farmers markets to be browsed, art festivals to attend, concerts, performances, celebrations and more. In other words, we make the most of summer in the high country.

The April Jobs Report showed the lowest unemployment rate in a decade at 4.4 percent, with an estimated 211,000 jobs created. While other economic indicators over the last month have been mixed, the Federal Reserve expects a moderate pace of economic activity expansion. This keeps the Fed on track for an expected second mortgage rate increase in 2017.

Freddie Mac says mortgage rates are currently hovering around 4 percent, up just under half a point from this time last year.

There are about 20 percent fewer active listings in Summit County and 23 percent fewer in Breckenridge compared to this date in 2016; however, the number of closed sales are up - in both greater Summit County and Breckenridge viewed as a stand-alone market.

How about some golf?

We, high country residing fans of flora and fauna, are very confused about how the pansy - heartiest of high altitude flowers - has become a shorthand insult for weakness. We, pansy fans, will continue to cheer for this little guy, often the first kiss of color pushing through the snow. Be a pansy! Get outside and enjoy the variable conditions of spring in the high country.

How about some golf? Since A-Basin will be open through at least June, some skiing in the morning and golf in the afternoon is a Summit County double header. Add a bike ride for a triple, and if you find a 2 for 1 dining deal for dinner you've hit the Summit County homerun. Only for the experts- add a paddle, raft, hole in one, or large wildlife sighting for

Thanks to a new facebook page and website, keeping up-to-date on spring season dining deals and restaurant closings is easier than ever. Newly created by tapped-in locals looking for one cohesive calendar of events, live music and dining specials, we predict this source will quickly become a Summit County must-check.
