The end of skyrocketing prices?
As ski season comes to an end, selling season begins! Put the skis away and take out the For Sale signs. If you have been wondering whether to list your Breckenridge or Summit County mountain property, we hope the first quarter Summit County MLS statistics will give you the answer.
The most significant statistic from the 2022 first quarter report is that residential property sales in Breckenridge are down 42% from end of March 2021. For all of Summit County, sales are down 31%. Inventory is slightly up in both Breckenridge and Summit County. List-to-sales-price ratio remains the same for March 2022 as it was in March 2021 (100%). Summit County inventory peaks June-September once ski season makes its farewell on Memorial weekend next month.
The drop in sales volume has not equated to a drop in price, yet price per square foot and average sales price remain high. Conversely, appreciation is down 11% from 2021’s 27%, although still at one of the highest levels in the past 10 years. Mortgage rates are up 30% and expected to climb throughout the remainder of the year, which may affect demand.
Should you sell in 2022? The statistics above clearly point to a changing market. Your Breckenridge Associates agent can advise what is best for you and your particular property based on your needs and goals.
