Despite the economy, Schweitzer Mountain Real Estate is trending up!

Maybe the accolades are actually taking effect!  Sunset Magazine has named Schweitzer Mountain a Top Twenty U.S. Ski Resort in its latest poll AND names Sandpoint, Idaho one of the Top Ten Ski Towns in the West! Powder Magazine is currently holding their Ski Town Throwdown Event where they have set up 32 brackets (similar to the NCAA Basketball Tournament) with the top ski areas/ski towns in North America.  The public is asked to vote for their favorite town.  Sandpoint/Schweitzer is in the FINAL FOUR! (Please feel free to join in the fun & vote - for Schweitzer, obviously - on Monday).

Back to the effect of these accolades...  As you can see from the graph below, Schweitzer Real Estate sales have been in a steady decline since 2007 when the economy began its disasterous downturn.  It slumped continually until 2010 when it bottomed out for two years.  This year, 2012, we finally are seeing an upswing, albeit small - a 16% gain when factoring in pending sales.  There are some spectacular expansions planned for the summer of 2013 which should help continue the rise back to profitable days!  (I'll be discussing the expansion in a future post).

Bottom line...VOTE SANDPOINT/SCHWEITZER (because we deserve it) and enjoy the greatest sport on earth!  Needless to say, I would be happy to show you a mountain condo at your convenience.  GO SCHWEITZER!
