New listings are flat with a 0% change and under contracts are up 44%. We currently have $77M under contract. Months supply of inventory for Crested Butte is 2.5 and for Mt Crested Butte 5.1 (if no new listing came on the market, in 2.5 or 5.1 months inventory would be at zero). Inventory continues to be low and sales will slow down in 2021 if inventory doesn’t pick up. As a Seller, now is a great time to sell. Prices are up, yet I’m also seeing Buyers use caution. Sellers can’t just throw out crazy prices and expect to get offers.
