The Summit Scoop

The Low Down On the High Country | January 2023

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to the scoop! I hope you had a great holiday season, and your new year is off to a great start. If you were on the list for calendars, you should have them by now! We left 2022 with news of snow and it has continued into 2023. We had a snow storm this week that has dumped around a foot of snow throughout the county and has led to great snow conditions for this MLK weekend. It looks like we should see some sun this weekend, so as always, it's a great time to be up in the mountains!

With the snow flying, resorts and town activities are in full swing. We've got tubing hills, skating ponds, nordic skiing and more open now through the rest of the winter (end of March/mid-April) to go along with the great skiing we're famous for. For those with family members looking for a day a little more restful, our shops and restaurants are fully open as well. If your itch is fun and involves snow and outdoor activities, we've got your scratch!

For those of you who plan ahead and love barbeque, be aware that the Barbeque Challenge is moving from Frisco to Copper this year. I know I've run into a number of you on Main Street in the past, you'll have to look for me in a new location.

On a business related note, Silverthorne just passed their short-term rental rule update. They're going to cap permits at 10% for the non-core areas of town and 50% for core areas. Summit County proper has a 9 month moratorium that should expire mid February. I'm not sure what direction they're going to go once that sun has set, but I will keep you up to date as info comes out.

Take care,

Your Monthly Answer to: How is the Market in Summit?

For those of you who have been reading the scoop for a while now you'll remember there was a ~ 2 year stint where all we talked about was zero inventory and raising prices. That pattern broke with the increase in interest rates, but we've begun a new pattern. Now we have relatively stable prices and inventory that's below average, but above the bottom. Days on market have increased and are getting back to the 45 day average we used to see in a "typical" market.

It also looks like inflation is slowing and the fed may continue to back off on interest rate hikes and while there may be more, that number looks like it will be more like the .25% we saw in December vs the .75% we saw over the summer.

There are some good deals to be had right now, I've been on both sides of a few of them, but they're rare. It's usually been a low offer hitting a motivated seller. I know there are some out there who feel the market is going to tank, and I don't see that in the cards right now. We still have decent buyer demand, and current owners in at low interest rates are not motivated to move.

I'll continue to keep you posted on the market and its changes but as always, individual goals over-ride trying to time the market. If you have any questions I can help with, please reach out and I'll do my best to guide you in the right direction.
