The Steamboat Pilot reported that 62 homes priced between $1 million and $2 million had sold in Routt County as of the end of November, however, when they say “62 homes”- that statistic must have included multi-family like condos and townhomes. 39 single family homes sold in 2014 between $1 million and $2 million according to data posted to the Steamboat Springs MLS. Fourteen of the the Buyers were represented by Colorado Group Realty Real Estate Brokers which includes the log home pictured - listed for $1,989,450 and sold for $1,909,500 in July 2014.

I’m not asked very often how bad crime is in Steamboat Springs but in case you were wondering, you will want to check out some of the better stories from our local newspaper, Steamboat Pilot Best of the Police Blotter 2014.
In the past 15 years or so living in town, I have only had a couple thefts of items from the front yard of our home which is on the core trail leading to downtown. One of which was our baby stroller. My guess is it must have been someone borrowing it to give one of the drunks mentioned in the article above, a ride home.
