Quarter Report | First Quarter 2018
Although this winter resulted in light snowfall and will be referred to many as the winter that wasn’t, 2018 is showing very positive signs for certain real estate segments.
Overall property sales are up 21% over 2017 Q1 with almost 12% more properties sold, but perhaps the most exciting data thus far is in land sales. Total dollar volume sold for parcels over 10 acres jumped a staggering 847%! Land sales in Rural Crested Butte and Gunnison area were also up 292% and 232% respectively, proving it’s not just the large parcels that are making a come back in our valley.
Condo and Townhome sales were down compared to the beginning of 2017 overall as inventory declined, however, the town of Crested Butte saw a slight increase in sales. Despite a decrease in Single Family home sales in Crested Butte and Rural CB areas, Gunnison areas, Almont, and Mt. Crested Butte showed a significant increase in sales.
As we transition out of the slower winter season, we are looking forward to the spring of 2018. Quarter 2 typically yields the largest increase in inventory for the year, and with 114 properties currently under contract, it looks to be a very successful sales quarter as well.
