Just returned from a stellar cross country ski on my new classic gear!! The opportunity to take advantage of the world class trails is just too hard to pass up after a summer of terrific dry land training.
It’s been an interesting fall with slightly lower than normal sales for most of the season. However, the annual consistent arrival of the white stuff has seen stronger sales activity in the last week. I guess one might guess that the strong start to the season has nudged buyers off the fence!!
Since my 2015 Summer Update there have been 14 sales on the mountain; mirroring the same period last year and relatively the same distribution between single family, strata and lots. Click HERE to see all sold properties since July 2015. Likely the most interesting factoid is that Creekside Condos continues to be strongest market for condos selling 12 units in the last 12 months. Much of what has sold in the last 12 months has been on the market for sometime. It really excites me to see room for new inventory to get noticed. More importantly, it offers clarity as to what real value is and how important market pricing is for any new inventory coming on in the future.
There is still a lot of inventory on the mountain and still a good market for negotiating. Silver Star will continue to offer some of the best winter conditions available. Purchasing with an eye to combining an investment property with the option of periodic, personal use is definitely a great way to enjoy winter!
Ski conditions are sensational and I’m gearing up for day one on the boards with a bonus early opening! Looking forward to seeing you on the slopes and drop me a line if you have any questions about Silver Star Real Estate.
