Now this is some good news I can handle for Colorado.  I have had the same feelings about our market in Crested Butte, CO but just barely.  I believe we may be at the bottom, but it will be a slow moving bottom in this cycle so plenty of time to get an incredible investment. I specialize in luxury homes and estates, ranch and acreage properties, condominiums, ski in/ski out, lake view, river frontage properties, golf course homes, residential and commercial developments as well as custom builder representation throughout the Crested Butte and Gunnison area.

That is the title that will be appearing on the cover of Mountain Bike Action Magazine’s October 2010 issue!  It seems that the town of Crested Butte and all that it has to offer impressed the magazine editors over the 30th Annual Fat Tire Bike Week enough to feature Crested Butte in a 15 page spread in their upcoming issue.

Hi Everyone,   Happy Friday the 13th! It has been a great summer so far in the Crested Butte real estate market.  With Crested Butte Mountain Resort's hotel and condo occupancy for July up 25% over last summer and lift ridership up 21% it is evident this has had a dramatic impact on real estate sales.  In the Lodge at Mountaineer Square, one of the hardest hit new developments on the mountain in recent years, has seen nine sales and currently has another eight residences under contract for a total potential of $7.995mil of sales. With numerous properties receiving multiple offers and some listings being sold for full price or more it may be that we’ve reached the bottom in this segment of the market. The Tipple House ($4.489mil), 757 Ridge Lane ($2.995mil) and adjoining $800k parcel, 1...

Crested Butte Mountain Resort just sent out a mid-summer report filled with some interesting news. On the real estate sales front 2010 has been a much better year than 2009.  Ten of their Lodge at Mountaineer Square listings and another four re-sales have sold or are under contract in 2010.  Their sales department told me that numerous properties are receiving multiple offers and some listings being sold for full price or more. The resort's summer visitor business has picked up considerably as well. CBMR is experiencing the best summer business levels in the history of the company with every revenue center and operational department performing at or ahead of budget.  Their hotel occupancy for July will be up 25% over last summer and lift ridership is up 21%. The addition of Mini Golf to...

Around the state of Colorado and here in Crested Butte, home sales - including luxury homes - are on the rise. In the Denver metro area, luxury home sales reached the highest point in nearly two years this June, demonstrating a steady improvement in the luxury home market. Sixty-seven homes sold for $1 million or more last month, up 3% from June 2010. Among the priciest pads sold last month in the Denver area was a six-bedroom, five-bathroom 9,207 square foot Denver home that sold for $3.95 million. According to the Denver Business Journal, this peak in sales can be attributed to super low mortgage rates and competitively priced homes.Resort towns in Colorado are experiencing similar luxury market conditions. Towns like Telluride and Vail are reporting a serious uptick in luxury home sa...

Hi Everyone, As with prices in Crested Butte, up to and in some case more than 50% off the highs, it looks like prices have been slashed everywhere for the busy summer season.  Sellers who wish to sell know that they must be so competitively priced that their property stands out and ultimately receives an offer.  Prices are at their lowest in years in Crested Butte so if you would like more information on your dream mountain home or ski in/ski out condo call me.

Hi Everyone, Looks like some good activity in the Colorado land market.  With land being some of the hardest hit in Colorado it appears the prices have fallen low enough for investors to snatch up the bargains.  With a extremely large amount of land listings in Crested Butte, CO I suspect we will see some move this summer, prices have droped 75% is many cases.  Call me if you are interested in purchasing some Crested Butte land this summer.

We are having the hardest time selling land in Crested Butte currently which creates the best time for a community to make a deal for open space.  Almost 400 acres now saved for all future generations.  Can't we just use this as a swap for the expansion on Snodgrass?  A little give an take? We still await the decision for appeal regarding that situation.  I will update you all of the final outcome.  Now is the best time to purchase in Crested Butte, with price reductions over 50%.  Call me if you would like to set up a time to view some amazing Crested Butte property.Cheers,Corey Dwan - REALTORBenson Sotheby's International RealtyP.O.
