With the final real estate sales numbers tallied from 2014 last year was the strongest since the market’s peak in 2007. San Miguel County finished the year up 48% in dollar volume of sales over 2013 and up 28% in number of sales. All told 2014 saw 523 sales worth a total of $507.1 million.

What does this mean for 2015? Based on activity YTD we expect that the market will continue to remain strong with inventory in Telluride tightening even more. Mountain Village may continue to offer better value as there’s more supply in most segments of this market and the days of the bank sales and REO offerings are, for the most part, behind us. New construction offerings will again start to appear in Telluride with Mountain Village following as the older home and condo inventory sells out.

As always, please feel free to stop by the office or contact us online or at 970-728-0213 with any of your real estate questions or needs.
