60 properties changed hands in the Gunnison and Crested Butte area in May, which is the highest number since 2007. Low inventory continues to be a problem in many areas, although slight gains were made in Crested Butte South, the Rural Gunnison area, and Crested Butte area land listings. Town is already starting to get busy again, and the upcoming 4th of July holiday is expected to be up 14% over last year.

The following year over year graphs compare the previous 365 days with the same period one year ago (i.e. 5/31/2015 through 5/31/2016 versus the same period from 2015 to 2016). With such a small market (sample size) these numbers can jump around, so it’s worth comparing these graphs over a period of time. My Gunnison and Crested Butte real estate market report archives can be found on this page. If you are looking for other statistics, such as inventory, or a more specific neighborhood analysis, please contact me.
