Breckenridge Market Update: March 2014

Hello from Breckenridge, Colorado!

How’s the local real estate market? We have a recovering market, with the number of residential sales up 19% over last year at this time. How has the number of listings varied, over the years, and seasonally? When do we have the most listings on the market? The fewest?

Get the quick answer from our 1-minute video, or see the details below.

The short answer is: The number of residential listings varies seasonally; low in January, high in July. From a multi-year standpoint, the number of listings was much lower back in 2007 during a hot real estate market. Overall the number of listings is falling as the market recovers.
