While the overall economic indicators are somewhat of a mixed bag right now, most economists seem to agree that the soft spots can be attributed to the recent slew of natural and manmade disasters- the hurricanes have cause some to put hiring on hold. The Jobs Report shows a loss of 33,000 jobs, but an increase in hourly wage and an unemployment rate of only 4.2 percent. Consumer confidence is soaring, and “the third-quarter CNBC All-America Economic Survey found 43 percent of the public believes the economy is excellent or good, a record high in the 10-year history of the survey,” according to CNBC’s special report about their All- America Economic Survey.

In a market as dynamic and competitive as our ski town area, having us on your side with our ear to the ground can make a deep difference. For almost every single month since January of 2011, the amount of available listings in both greater Summit County and Breckenridge as a stand- alone market have dropped from the year before. In 2017 condos and townhomes have been listing and closing in less than two months, and that includes the time between a sales contract and closing date. This market moves fast. In fact, the average days on market for a condo in Breckenridge in 2017 is 52 days, down from what we thought was a rocket fast 100 days in 2016. The average price per square foot in this same Breckenridge condo sector grew to $625.94 per square foot, compared to 2016’s $522.64 per square foot price. In the greater Summit County marketplace, condos only lasted 42 days and for average sales price of almost 13.5% more that 2016 numbers.
