Summit County Real Estate Stats, Jan and Feb 2015

Total Sales for Summit County: The number of Summit County residential sales is up 16% for January through February 2015 over the same months in 2014. Average prices for 2015 are up almost 11% from the aver­age price of residential sales in all of 2014. The average days on market for all sales is up to 368 days. This indi­cates to me that there are a lot of over priced properties that eventually get sold when they reduce their price. A well priced property should sell in less than 6 months. This is a very strong start to the new year!

About 44% of our Buyers are from the front range, 24% are local, 31% are out of state. 39% of transactions were cash in January which is a little low considering how low interest rates are. Inventory is down to only 723 listings countywide, and I am still very busy even though it is supposed to be off season.

Based on the last list price of the properties sold January through February 2015…..
$200,000 to $400,000 is ALWAYS the hottest part of the market with 62 properties sold.
$400,000 to $600,000 saw 33 solds.
$600,000 to $800,000 saw 23 solds.
$800,000 to $1,000,000 saw 16 solds.
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000 saw 16 solds.
$2,000,000 to $3,000,000 saw 4 solds.
And no properties sold for over $3,000,000 YTD.

Single Family Sales: The number of Single Family home sales for January through February 2015 is up 13% over the same months in 2014. The average sales price has risen 3% in 2015 year to date over the average price of Single Family homes in all of 2014. The average days on market for Single Family homes is 250 days.

Condo and Multi Family Sales: Condo/ Multi Family sales for January through February 2015 are up 16% over the same months in 2014. The average sales price is up 15% year to date in 2015 over the average Condo price in all of 2014. The average days on market for Condo/ Multi Family sales is up to 410 days but this includes the days a property is on the market when it has previously been listed.

2013 January through December Market Update

Things are looking good in Summit County! Not only do we have excellent snow totals, but bookings are up 12% (which makes a second improved year in a row for rentals), retail is up roughly 15%, and real estate over all is on a positive trend. I hope you and your family have the opportunity to escape to the high country to enjoy everything we have to offer!

Total Sales for Summit County: Summit County sales are up 16% for 2013 over 2012, and September was our strongest month with a 59% increase over September 2012. November 2013 was down 10%, and December 2013 down 15% over the same months 2012. Average prices for 2013 are down about 4% from the average prices of 2012. While this might not sound exciting to sellers, I can give you plenty of examples of specific complexes that are up 15% to 20% above their bottom recession price. Give me a call if you want to know what is going on in your neighborhood specifically —it is likely to be good news. For 2013, 40% of Summit County sales are in the Breckenridge area, and 40% of buyers are from the front range.

Single Family Sales: The number of Single family home sales are the same in 2013 over 2012. The average sales price has dropped about 3% in 2013 year to date. I would like to add my opinion that we have cleaned up some pretty rough inventory in 2013.

Condo and Multi Family Sales: Condo/ multi family sales are up 24% 2013 over 2012. The average sales price has increased about 3% in 2013 over 2012. Condo/multi family is the bulk of our market, so this is a great trend!

Foreclosures: In 2013 we only had 47 foreclosures compared to 87 foreclosures in 2012, 145 foreclosures in 2011, 104 foreclosures in 2010, and 47 foreclosures in 2009. We have almost reached pre-recession levels.

In other Summit News: The New Peak 6 Trail Map is here! Breckenridge has had a ridiculous amount of early snow…the ski resort is reporting over 150 inches for this season so far. Ullrfest is January 5-11, the International Snow Sculpture Championships are January 21 through February 2, and our Mardis Gras celebrations are from March 1- 4. There are so many great events at all of the local mountain communities that I can’t list them all!

Market Update for Summit County January through June 2013

The market is going up and down month by month, but prices are mostly stable and condo sales are still up. Prices have been flat for the last 2 years so it will be interesting to see when they will start inching up again, especially since we haven’t had a great deal of inventory for the last 2 years. **Some complexes are seeing over 20% increases in prices but it really depends. Give me a call if you would like to know what the average prices are doing in a specific complex or neighborhood.

Total Sales for Summit County: Total residential property sales for January through June 2013 are up 15% over the same period in 2012. The average price is down only about 3%.

Single Family Homes: Single family home sales in May 2013 were slightly up from May 2012. June 2013 is down about 28% in transactions from June 2012.

Summer Storm of the Century!

Several days later, Summit County is still cleaning up the mess from Monday night’s storm!  We broke the 24- hour rain fall record of 2.6 inches set in 1893, eventually totaling nearly 4 inches.  Homeowners have reported flooding in their homes as well as washed out roads and driveways.  The nearly non-stop thunder and lightning was as intense as any long time local has ever seen.  For a full article check out Summit Daily News at http://www.summitdaily.com/article/20110719/NEWS/110719759/0/FRONTPAGE .
