$20 will get you a Parade in Summit County the next 2 weekends!

by The Mountain Living Team

Parade of Homes 2017 in Summit County ColoradoThe Summit County Parade of Homes runs this weekend, September 23rd & 24th, and next weekend, September 30th & October 1st.  For just $20 you can tour 17 amazing homes across the county.  I’m sure the homes will impress but if they don’t you certainly won’t be disappointed by the changing aspen leaves. 

The county is a glistening gold with a little orange and red scattered in right now.  Many trees are still green but they will be changing in time for the Parade.  It will be a fantastic time to visit 4 homes in Silverthorne, 1 in Dillon, 2 in Keystone, 2 in Copper and 8 more in Breckenridge.

Tickets are available at some local merchants and at just 5 of the homes on the tour.  Be sure and get your wristband to give you access or make sure your first stop is one of the 5 homes selling tickets.  Those 5 homes are:

#1 260 High Park Ct in Silverthorne
#5 111 Centennial Ct in Dillon
#8 1062 Beeler Place at Copper
#10 181 Shores Lane in Breckenridge
#16 112 S Harris St in Breckenridge

This year’s Parade includes a couple of remodels, some newly constructed townhomes and, of course, some amazing single family homes.  Several of the properties on the tour are available for sale.  If you fall in love and don’t want to go home empty handed, we’re ready to emphatically represent you during your purchase.  If the homes on the Parade aren’t right for you, but you want a place in Summit County, we will still represent you with the same vigor.  Of course, there’s no obligation to buy anything.  You are welcome to steal decorating ideas, see what the latest trends are, find out about local builders and companies that can supply you with the products to make your home feel like a Parade home, or just simply look.

The 2017 Summit County Parade of Homes is a great opportunity to spend a weekend, or two, in the mountains and check out some fantastic scenery, both natural and man-made.

View the Parade of Homes Magazine online or pick one up when you buy your tickets.  More information is available on the Summit County Builders website.

First Quarter Summit County Real Estate Statistics

by The Mountain Living Team

Despite low inventory levels, it’s been a great first quarter for residential real estate sales.  Sales are up over 2016 and the highest we’ve seen in a decade.  Inventory is starting to build so hopefully we can sustain an even better second quarter.

Residential sales in January were great; up 29.9% over 2016 and the most January sales since 2007.  February was not as good.  We actually lost a little ground with a decline of 20.7%.  March pulled the quarter back up with another double digit gain; up 38.5%.  That brought the total quarterly residential sales to 330, up 16.6% over 2016. 

Inventory has been on the rise since mid March.

Inventory has been on the rise since mid March.  It’s still low for this time of year, ideally I’d love to have double the listings we have now.  The increase is starting early this year.  Because there is so little competition right now, properties are coming on the market hoping to find a buyer that has been waiting and get a premium price on their property.   

At the start of April, the type of activity we are seeing in a given week is about 50 new properties on the market, 43 going under contract, 19 price decreases & 7 that were under contract but fell apart and are back on the market. 

The second quarter always has more sales than the first quarter.  The third quarter will have more sales than the second quarter.  Typically the third quarter has the most sales but we have been mixing it up recently with some really good fourth quarters too.  Last year there were nearly 60% more sales in Q2 than in Q1.  We will need, and should get, a lot more properties on the market to sustain that type of activity.  The only question is if there will be enough listings to build up the inventory.  Last year’s summertime high was under 700 properties for sale; about a 3 month supply. We will probably have fewer properties than that this year.

 

The 2017 Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Champions have been chosen!

Breckenridge Snow Sculptures

If you haven't been to Breckenridge during the snow sculpture championships you need to make it a point to get here soon.  It's amazing what these people can do with a block of snow.  I can barely build a snowman let alone sculpt some of the intricate designs these artists carve out.  The winner of the 2017 International Snow Sculpture Championships; China2017 is no exception.  This years sculptures are worth a visit!  Consider a night time viewing too.  Colored lights shine on the whittled snow creating beautiful displays and a completely different experience than you'll have during the day.  It's free to see the sculptures located in RiverWalk in Breckenridge.  These warm temperatures make it hard for the artwork to last the entire week so wait until the last day to visit.  Weather permitting, they will be around through Super Bowl Sunday, February 5th.  This year's winner was China although my personal favorite was created by the local Breckenridge team.Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge Colorado
