November brings us Opening Day at Breckenridge Ski Resort which always feels like a national holiday, at least here in the high country. Goals for vertical feet and number of days on the mountain will be set. The last few months of the year can be some of the slowest for real estate showings which might just be the very best time for buyers to get their foot in the door of a new mountain home. Interest rates are still low so don’t put your search off until spring.

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.

Housing markets in Summit County and all over the country are experiencing record sales. Millions of Americans want an upgraded home, a new location to call home or their first home. One of the largest emerging groups is the millennial generation.
