There has been a significant drop off in inventory from 925 active listings at this time last year to only 400 current listings. With such a limited supply, it’s logical to predict that individual values will continue to rise while total sales numbers may decrease.

Off the Slopes in Steamboat Springs


New York Times, February 2015

Steamboat Springs used to be a snow globe filled with champagne powder snow, cowboys and gold miners. That’s changing through a community renaissance sparked by chefs, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and farmers who make the Yampa Valley their home.

The town is creating parks and has plans to repurpose buildings along the main drag by the Yampa River, hoping to make it a destination. The new Steamboat is an urban, walkable oasis where skiing is just a bus ride away. You can mountain bike out your front door and park that bike in front of restaurants catering to sophisticated palates.
