Fourth Quarter Market Report for 2018 – Year End

Real estate sales throughout Gunnison County were down slightly in 2018 over 2017. The Upper Gunnison Valley saw a decline of 7.1%, due in part to higher prices and less inventory.

Single-family home buyers gravitated toward the more populous areas of Mt. Crested Butte, Crested Butte South, and the City of Gunnison for single-family homes, while rural area sales dipped 23% over 2017. We witnessed (and represented the seller of) the highest sale to date in the Town of Crested Butte, a beautiful single-family home selling for an impressive $3.85M!

Since the acquisition of Crested Butte Mountain Resort by Vail Resorts earlier this year, Mt. Crested Butte sales have been on everyone’s radar, especially for condos and townhomes. Although we have noticed increased interest in mountain properties, inventory remains low so sales have remained roughly the same as in 2017. Condo sales were down 8% in rural areas but jumped 72% in the Town of Crested Butte with an impressive 40% reduction in days on market.

While the rural areas generally saw a decrease in residential sales, these areas were booming in land sales. More buyers turned to building due to increased residential prices resulting in a 35% increase in Rural Crested Butte, and an incredible 86% increase in Crested Butte South. Rural Gunnison witnessed a substantial sale of 420 acres for $5.3M, the 7th largest sale recorded in Gunnison County!

It certainly was a fantastic year, and I am looking forward to what 2019 brings!

The Real Estate SOURCE – Winter 2018/2019

Crested Butte real estate winter 18-19 cover

Variable  is  the  word  that  comes  to  mind  when  describing  the  real  estate  market  in  Gunnison  County  as  we  look  at  our 2018  statistics.  This  has  been  expected  with  the  acquisition  of  Crested  Butte  Mountain  Resort  by  Vail  Resorts,  and  we foresee  change  to  continue  in  the  next  year.

Certain  categories,  such  as  vacant  land,  have  seen  a  dramatic  boost  in  sales  this  year.  More  35+  acre  parcels  have  sold in  2018  than  any  year  in  the  past  decade.  Vacant  land  inventory  is  the  highest  we  have  seen  in  the  past  10  years;  therefore,  land  prices  have  not  rebounded  to  the  highs  of  2007.    Rural  Crested  Butte  and  Crested  Butte  South  saw  the  largest  increase  in  sales  compared  to  last  year,  so  the  building  movement  is  not  likely  to  slow  down  anytime  soon.

Residential  inventory  on  the  other  hand  is  down  compared  to  last  year,  resulting  in  less  sales.    The  average  sold  price  for Gunnison  County  also  dipped  from  2017.    Specifically,  Rural  Crested  Butte  experienced  the  largest  decline  in  residential  sales,  with  total  properties  sold  thus  far  down  36%  and  sales  volume  down  37%.    Contrarily,  Crested  Butte  South saw  a  19%  spike  in  residential  sales  volume  and  a  significant  increase  in  average  sales  price  –  the  highest  CB  South  has  seen  in  the  last  ten  years!

With  new  resort  ownership  this  year,  the  real  estate  market  is  expected  to  grow,  and  with  new  developments  underway,  we  expect  the  next  year  to  be  very  exciting  here  in  Crested  Butte!

Resort Report for 2018

As the national residential real estate market continues to evolve, it is important to note that markets demonstrating some of the most unique performances in the nation, are those located in resort communities throughout Colorado and the western United States. The Crested Butte Sotheby’s International Realty annual Resort Report analyzes data pertinent to the various resort real estate markets located throughout Colorado and the western United States, helping consumers make better real estate decisions, whether purchasing or selling a home in a resort area.

Typically found in desirable, slightly less accessible locations than national mainstream markets, resort markets tend to have a larger volume of luxury offerings to accommodate high-net-worth individuals that are drawn to these areas based on their exclusivity and proximity to world-class, year-round activities. In resort communities, seasonality, location, and employment opportunities often drive the inventory of homes down, and housing prices up. Interestingly, all of the Sotheby’s International Realty resort locations listed below, analyzed within the report, demonstrated increases in both average price and average price per square foot- a clear indicator of consumers’ continued desire for lifestyle-inspired home purchases and willingness to spend more for homes they truly desire.

When contemplating as large a financial commitment as the purchase or sale of a primary or second home in a resort area, market data can make a significant impact on making sound financial decisions. Crested Butte Sotheby’s International Realty, and the many respected Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates that contributed to this report, remain committed to helping consumers make better real estate decisions, whether purchasing or selling a home.
