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.

Hi Everyone, One sign that real estate may be on the mend.  With interest rates at all time lows and many qualified buyers actively purchasing it appears the Manhattan real estate market has gained some strength.  Hopefully this summer in Crested Butte we will have many more sales than last.  We are already have 50% more properties sold or under contract this year so the future is looking bright for a reduction in inventory.Contact me if you would like some available listings sent your way.Cheers,Corey Dwan - REALTORBenson Sotheby's International RealtyP.O.

I for one can say the condo market here in Crested Butte has been hit the hardest.  With prices as low as $349 a square foot for true ski in/ski out the deals have never been this good.  You would be very hard pressed to find prices as low as this in any other ski resort in Colorado.  Call me for a current list of available Crested Butte condos or visit my website to search the MLS privately and securely.

Wow, wouldn't this have been a great idea from the beginning?  It takes time, effort and documentation to borrow large sums of money, what a concept.  The major impact?  Those who shouldn't borrow money will not be able to and those that can the process will just take longer.  I have already upped my loan conditions deadline from 30 to 60 days now for all my buyers.  If you're qualified it is one of the best times in history to get that dream vacation home in Crested Butte.  Give me a call.
