December 2009 Archives

The year 2009 ends with the average price of a single family home in Summit County remaining steady if not up a small percent. According to Breckenridge Land Title, the average price is up 8 percent. However, the sale of Copper Mountain Ski Area this year cause those properties to see a 38 percent increase which skews the totals.

Breckenridge single family homes were up in average price by 24 percent from 2008, as was the unincorporated Breckenridge neighborhood called Peak 7.

Silverthorne had a healthy growth of 11 percent. And Keystone saw a small rise of 4 percent.

For more information, I've linked to the Land Title Market Snapshot.

It's easy to see from this chart that summer is the best time to sell property in Summit County.

Every season, there is a new Mountain Homes magazine, and this year, visitors to my website can access the magazine and its photos with a simply click from my home pages. Or from here:

At the Breckenridge Resort Chamber breakfast Wednesday, the 9th, Rob Katz, the CEO of the Breckenridge Ski Resort, said the resort has been upping its attention to customer service. They have steadily been improving the quality of the experience guests have at the resort. He feels that their efforts have helped many visitors become long-term visitors. That's good news for locals and visitors.

On Saturday night, the 5th of December the annual Lighting of Breckenridge was beautiful. The town pairs with Christmas lights like ballet does with The Nutcracker, like Bordeaux and chocolate. Like wood works in mountains architecture, like warm goes with fireplace, which is what I was in front of on the night of the Lighting this year. Next year. This link to the Breck. Resort Chamber will help us all remember -- Lighting of Breckenridge.

The temperature this week and last have been brutal. The good news is that we only have a week or so of below zero days all winter season, so by Christmas will surely have used them all up.
