The Crested Butte Connoisseur
Brought to you by Corey Dwan of Benson Sotheby's International Realty
Real estate sales have concluded for the year at levels we have not seen in years. Our upper valley (Almont North) finished 2011 with 222 sales of condos and single family homes representing a 32% increase over the total sales from last year. With $98,017,653 in sales and another 28 transactions totaling $16,005,298 under contract including a $4mil home and three others ranging from $1mil to $1.7mil it is clear the luxury market is on the rebound. Combined with the years total land sales of $7,861,850, 55 transactions, we have comfortably surpassed $100,000,000 in sales for the upper valley. Land experienced the largest improvement over last year with an increase of 45%.
I am pleased to announce that my office realized just over 21% of the total volume of sales in the upper valley making us the number one performing real estate office in the Crested Butte area. I managed again to be the third highest producer in my office as well as first in the Crested Butte area for number of completed transactions for 2011. Thank you all for making this possible.
With all of these recent sales the market has been much more competitive for the well priced product. Multiple offers and sellers holding to their asking price (if priced correctly) are common place in the current Crested Butte real estate market. It is imperative that you have a qualified real estate agent represent you so that they can determine what the current value is and what the market will bear.
Contact me anytime to discuss the current market and please visit my newly designed website. It's easier to read, has the most comprehensive community information in the valley and the easiest to use MLS property search tool.

After more than 10 years of a partnership with Coors and
Colorado Beverage in Montrose, Colorado, Crested Butte Mountain Resort has
recently signed with a new beer sponsor. Bud Light is now the official beer of
CBMR! There are several reasons for this change. CBMR's marketing partnership is
with Anheuser-Busch, of St. Louis, Missouri. A nationally-based partner allows
them to activate nationwide marketing initiatives to broaden their reach to bring
guests in from outside of Colorado. Anheuser-Busch has already lined up co-branded
radio spots across the country. In addition to this, they are planning to make
a special Crested Butte ale that will be featured around the resort and
eventually in town. While CBMR's partnership with Coors was very much appreciated,
"We felt that we needed to leverage this new relationship to bring guests here
and to encourage new prospective guests from neighboring states rather than to
discount the experience to destination guests who are already in Colorado."
