The economy has come roaring back from the recession of 2008. We are seeing this strength in all sectors, and housing in Summit County is no exception. While we have yet to hit every peak of the pre-2008 summit County real estate records, we are pushing towards those numbers for the first time in a decade. This is remarkable as inventory remains at a record low and days on market are head-whippingly fast. While most economic forecasters expect the Fed to raise the rates two more time this year, in September and December, there is a rift on predictions for 2019.

Summit County residents and visitors are the lucky beneficiaries of a real estate purchase that adds more than 1,000 acres to the county's already abundant open space and trails network.  Knorr Lakeside Ranch went on the market in the spring after six generations of the family had ranched the land, but just couldn't keep plugging away at the tough business of ranching. Thanks to their neighbors, who initially bought the property, Summit County now has land on the banks of Green Mountain Reservoir, near Heeny, in the northern part of the county.

The latest gift of open space arrives through the hard work of many committed people, who tirelessly work to increase this bounty, to blaze public/private solutions to creating and protecting open space and

Recently, the days have even started to smell different. First the nights get cooler, than colder. The light softens from the brilliance of summer. The tundra changes into her fall colors first, up there above tree line, where the weather is more extreme. Then come the first hits of the golden magic that marks the aspens changing. The nights get colder, the light even softer, and the aspen leaves brighter. Soon enough well wake to the first dusting of snow on the peaks, with a blaze of golden aspen meadow below. The heat in your home kicks on for the first time. More seasonal people arrive to town, energy running high with expectations of a big winter. Passes are purchased, gear is prepared, roommates gathered, wood chopped, split and stacked. The first

It has been often repeated that 2017 was a once-in-a-generation sellers market in Summit County. That said, summer of 2018 continues the trend toward a healthy real estate market here in the high country. While July 2018 showed stronger numbers than July 2017 regarding number of sales, there was a 6.12% softening in sales year-to-date. Considering the record low number of available listings and the slight uptick in mortgage rates, that decline is slight and, on the whole, results indicate a strong market.

Seventy-two percent of all buyers in July of 2018 came from within Colorado, and only 1% of Summit County buyers are internationals. Interestingly, in Breckenridge this July, single family, duplex and condo sales all outpaced the July 2017 numbers,
