The safety of the Colorado mountains

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Summit Realty

I just love showing property here on the side of the Continental Divide...surrounded by 13- and 14,000 foot peaks.  The beauty is astounding and so far, the housing market is holding tight.  I have not noticed any real slip in property values, although sales numbers were down for 2008.  On the other hand, I have the longest list of potential buyers that I have ever had at this time of year and many of them are actively looking and plan to buy this Spring.  This early season activity is supported by my colleagues in other offices, which makes us feel very buoyant and the troubled economy quite far away.  We do feel safe in the mountains!

Caring expertise...knowledge for you!

Very interesting!     I'm noting a rise in buyer interest in my secondary home/discretionary marketplace, too.     Counter to the media reporting.

Wow, that's interesting. Here in Jackson, WY, we are seeing dramatic drops in both volume and pricing. No doubt a reversal of the incredible run-up (i.e. bubble) that we saw over the last few years.
