August Real Estate News

By Key To Vail - August 08, 2023



Inventory and Pending Sales Up!
It has been a beautiful summer in the valley.  A stormy spring yielded an abundance of wildflowers and great fishing and river activities.  Bravo!, Gypsum Daze, the Eagle Fair and Rodeo, Dance Festival, and farmer's markets have been summer staples and brought both locals and visitors together to enjoy the events and build community.
In real estate, positive trends have emerged in the market with active listings and pending sales both higher than a year ago at this time.  Market activity remains strong with new listings continuing to come to market as we approach the historic peak of inventory to start August.  Despite challenges with higher interest rates, buyer demand is significant.  New construction and remodeled homes are capturing buyer attention and warranting strong sale prices and continued bidding wars for new and "like new" construction. 
Pricing to the market remains paramount.  In all geographic areas and price points, buyers remain selective and critical of price, location, and condition.  Properties that have not garnered attention because of condition still have a place in the market - but they need to be priced accordingly. 
If you are interested in learning more about the value of your home or curious about a specific area, please contact me today.  The market remains dynamic, and I would enjoy the opportunity to discuss your specific questions and goals.
There is much to enjoy and look forward to - wonderful August events (see below), Oktoberfests throughout the valley, and the annual changing of leaves and fall weather.  I hope you have had an opportunity to get out and enjoy everything the valley has to offer!
