I am pleased to announce another successful real estate transaction in Crested Butte. I represented the purchasers on the single family home located at 46 Shavano Street in Crested Butte South. The 1,764 sf home sold for $370,000. With only 10 homes currently listed for sale in Crested Butte South and prices rising dramatically, this sale may very well be the last of the good price opportunities on a quality home in that community. Right now, the average list price of a single family home in Crested Butte South is $533,000 and the average list price per square foot is just under $200.00! 23 homes have sold in Crested Butte South since early 2013 creating a condition of scarcity and rising prices.46 Shavano Street is a very well maintained three bedroom, two bath home, featuring a 1st f...

Corey Dwan of Benson Sotheby's International realty is pleased to announce yesterday's sale of 23 Teocalli Avenue in downtown Crested Butte via Buyer representation. This level, well situated lot on the coveted west side of town was listed for $550,000 and sold for full price. Enjoying expansive views of the Paradise Divide and Mt. Crested Butte this location is only a stone's throw from Elk Avenue. This is a clear example of the current lack of inventory of desirable land in town as well as the current shortage of single family home inventory forcing buyers to build. If you are looking for a home or wish to build a home in Crested Butte contact Corey for more information.
