Market Conditions Show Impact of Short-Term Rental Regulations in Breckenridge

With a higher number of condominiums located in the Resort Zone and Zone 1, these properties continue to benefit from a larger buyer pool that wants rental income to help offset ownership costs. There are only a select few neighborhoods left where buyers can still obtain a Short-Term Rental License for single family homes, causing that market segment to moderate.
