2017: The Year for Progression By: Kara Mann - Broker Associate

The first quarter of 2017 has been extremely busy for Steamboat Springs real estate! A total of 124 residential listings (single family, condos, and townhomes) were sold through March, a considerable 51% increase over last year. The average sold price for residential listings also continues to rise; $1.2M for single family homes and $600K for condos/townhomes (up from 28% and 22% at this time last year). With the announcement that Aspen Skiing Company and KSL Capital Partners acquired Intrawest, owner of Steamboat Resort, we expect the upcoming selling season to be very strong. As an indicator of things to come, we are seeing increased interest from out of town real estate developers who are looking at potential new projects. Give us a call so that we can keep you updated on how this big deal affects you! 2016 Q1

Trends & Forecast By: Chris Paoli - Broker/Owner

The ski area sale will likely impact ski area properties the most. An interesting statistic to monitor is the months of supply for ski in/ out condos. In September of 2016, there was a 1.61 year supply and at the end of April of 2017, there was a 1.18 year supply. We expect these trends to continue. Average Price per Sq Ft

With inventory for sale at relatively low levels and the announcement of the Intrawest acquisition, it is reasonable to anticipate upward pressure on prices

in the next 12 months.


In real estate markets, change occurs slowly. While the data can be random due to the varied nature of inventory, signs of real change are easiest to observe on the supply side.

Commercial Real Estate By: Chris Sias - Broker Associate

The first quarter of 2017 presented expanding or relocating businesses with options to acquire existing real estate at below replacement cost. With businesses like Staples and Sports Authority shuttering, this creates the opportunity to expand into existing facilities without the cost, uncertainity, and delay involved with building. The industrial sector has several large, mixed-use buildings in excellent condition available in the Elk River area as well as two sizeable properties adjacent to US 40 on the west end. The current market offers great options for the nimble and ambitious businesses to get up and running in virtually no time.
