The big news in Crested Butte real estate this past month was the sale of the 156 acre “North Village” parcel near the Snodgrass trailhead, for $5.3 Million. This area was expected to be developed along with a ski area expansion onto Snodgrass mountain, though the forest service denied those expansion plans. No word yet on what type of development will be pursued, so stay tuned. In other news, June sales were down compared to previous years, though the dollar volume was still up thanks to the sale mentioned above and generally higher prices. Time will tell, but my suspicion is that the heavy winter snowfall and late arrival of spring/summer has something to do with the lower unit volume. Inventory is up this month, thanks to a number of new listings (common for this time of year).

The following year over year graphs compare the previous 365 days with the same period one year ago (i.e. 6/30/2017 through 6/30/2018 versus the same period from 2018 to 2019). With such a small market (sample size) these numbers can jump around, so it’s worth comparing these graphs over a period of time.
