Q1 2022 SUMMIT COUNTY REAL ESTATE MARKET REVIEW

At the start of the year, I shared predictions for 2022, national and local. I, like you, have been curious about whether these predictions would hold out. This market update will look specifically at January to March 2022 and year to year changes noted as percentages will compare 2022 to 2021. We will take a look at condominiums, single family homes, and residential properties as a whole in both Breckenridge and greater Summit County.A living room with a fireplace.jpg
Looking at Summit County residential real estate as a whole, this includes condominiums, townhomes, duplexes, and single family homes. Residential sales are down 31% with 278 properties being sold in Q1; significantly less homes are on the market. Averaging 23 days on the market, there are currently only 127 residential properties for sale in all of Summit County. The average sold price of residential properties increased 39% and is currently hovering around $1,387,311. With less supply, the demand has increased and prices have continued to increase which can be seen when looking at the 102% average list to sold price percentage.

Looking specifically at condominiums in Summit County, there are currently 43 condominiums for sale in all of Summit County with only 150 properties sold so far this year; that number is down 26%.
