Breckenridge Market Update

Hello from Breckenridge, the best ski town in the Colorado Rockies!

Here’s the spring-time review for the real estate market in Breckenridge, Colorado.

We have a buyer’s market that is steadily moving towards a more balanced market. Portions of our market are actually starting to favor sellers; for example, there is only a 2-month supply of homes under $500,000 in Breckenridge! Overall, prices per square foot are roughly flat since 2009, and the number of sales is clearly moving up.

There’s plenty to choose from, prices are rolled back to 2005 levels, and interest rates are low. If you’ve been wanting to invest in Summit County, CO, now is the time!
