Steamboat Springs Sees Another Record Month in Real Estate Activity in part due to COVID-19

Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Where are all these Steamboat home buyers coming from?

Recent showings of my equestrian - recreational property on the road to Steamboat Lake were younger families from southern states. They tend to have middle school - high school aged kids and are looking for a place to play outdoors with access to public lands, privacy from neighbors, and the possibility of moving here permanently. You can take a virtual tour of Phantom Springs Ranch here.

With Increased Demand Comes Increased Home Values

In 26 years of real estate I didn’t do many sales in excess of $1M. In the past 60 days from this post date, there have been a total of 32 pending and closed sales for single homes over $2M. The average price of a home in Steamboat Springs is now $1.4M up 18% since this time last year, here are the home sales in the past 30 days. Low inventory, cost of land, high construction cost and high demand since COVID-19 continues to drive up prices.

During October, residential properties in Steamboat Springs went under contract in 15 days on average.

Lets Break another Record

My actual wish is to see a record year of snow, this last couple months of home sales is concerning because its not always a good thing to grow too fast, but always a good thing to see abundant powder. See Steamboat’s snow alarm.

Setting a benchmark at crisis time, Steamboat Springs Real Estate

Sunday, March 22, 2020

See more details about Real Estate

Having been in this business close to 30 years now, I know what to expect at times of crisis. We still have pent up demand for real estate in Steamboat Springs and low supply, but not much is moving which could mean our market is about to change.

To monitor change, set a benchmark and watch the market. (I had to redact my original thought here, I’m first to admit I mis-guessed the effect of COVID-19 and the result it has had on the Steamboat Real Estate Market. See what I have sold lately.

You can sign up to receive market reports directly from our MLS by contacting me.

Monday, February 10, 2020

The West Condos in Steamboat SpringsWest Condos with 3 or more bedrooms for sale are rare. The last one posted to the MLS that closed was in April 2008 for $495,000. But not all deals are necessarily found online. Our local newspaper notes a 3 bed sale at The West condos for $385,000. I’m not sure if this was a Arm’s Length Transaction, but if so, the Buyer got a heck of deal. Value depending on quality finishes may be around $500k.
