Steamboat Springs, Colorado – Real Estate Market Report

November was a slow month for real estate transactions in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In comparison to the prior November it was down significantly. But looking over the numbers to date, there has been a vast improvement from last year. Most likely this November drop was just coincidence but there are a few signs that might shed some light on the drop in real estate sales. For starters, congress has been working on the tax bills / tax cut extensions and this has caused a bit of a stir. In looking deeper, the November numbers show that the vast majority of the transactions occurred at the price point between $200,000 and $1,000,000. Thus, the upper-end buyers might have been tentative awaiting the tax extension vote. We’ll see if this hypothesis ring true and numbers increase during December and January.
