Here is the First Quarter 2018 Market recap from Red Lady Realty Broker, Diane Aronovic:

"The real estate market in Crested Butte continues to exhibit strength overall, currently trending at 21.5% year over year in overall sales. There is still an overwhelming lack of supply of listings, and the entry level price point continues to be the strongest area of the market. Mt. Crested Butte condos have an average sales price of $449,412, compared to last year’s $327,315—a 37% gain. The average number of days on market is shrinking, from 276 to 264, and we are seeing properties sell at an average of 96% of list price, which is quite strong. Since this sector contains the market’s greatest demand, I think this trend will continue with condos priced at $350,000 or less selling quickly.

The town of Crested Butte is a bit of an anomaly, though the small number of sales skews the average. The average price of single family homes has risen from $1,582,250 to $1,770,000, but due to an overweight in in the condo/townhome sector, the average price has fallen from $1,194,833 to $929,748. I think we will see this statistic change over the year into a higher average number. The average days on market in town has fallen from 289 to 230, showing strength.

A potential reason for the slow sales in the town of Crested Butte is uncertainty over whether any short term rental licenses would be available. That had some people holding off on purchasing to see what the end result would be. As of this printing, there seems to be a scant number of licenses still available, but that can and will change as time goes on.

Overall, we are looking for the strength in the real estate market to continue, especially as we go into our busy summer and fall selling seasons."
