“Working with both Buyers and Sellers has given me the opportunity to meet and become friends with some great people.”

Of course, the price does vary by bedroom size with a 1 bedroom at an average of $300,000, 2 bedrooms at an average of $450,000 and 3 bedrooms averaging $600,000. Condos built 2000 and newer are averaging $687,000 and those built 1999 and older are averaging $380,000.

Interesting: The peak selling year for residential sales from 1/1-9/30 was 2006. Today the county is witnessing strong sales, yet those sales would have to increase by 28% to equal 2006’s. And, yet, the 2006 average sold price would have to increase 52% to equal the average sold price today.


All the above prices are average sold prices for sales this year between 1/1 – 9/30.

Crested Butte, Co Market Report – Fall 2017

Fall has arrived in Crested Butte along with the beautiful days and cool nights. There was a little snow on distant peaks this morning (oh no!), but it was gone before noon. This is a great time of year to be in Crested Butte. The streets and trails are less crowded and the colors just make you smile.

Our fall festival, Vinotok, is coming up next weekend and that usually signals the peak of fall colors. Come check it out if you haven’t seen it before. It is a wonderful tradition to be thankful for the bounty of summer and welcome the winter to come.

Things will slow down in the coming weeks as we get ready for what will hopefully be another snowy winter. Opening day for the ski area is Wednesday November 22nd. Season pass prices increase after October 8 so click here to buy yours today!
As you can see from the stats above, 2017 has been a good year for real estate sales in Crested Butte. August had the most closings of any month in the last 10 years! Let me know if you would like more information about any specific segment or property. I am happy to talk with you about what is happening in the area.
