Year-End Real Estate Market Report for Steamboat Springs, CO

Steamboat Springs Real Estate Market Report


2016 was the fifth best real estate market ever recorded for the Steamboat Springs Multiple Listing Service. 1,193 transactions posted (+10% over 2015) and nearly $618 million in dollar volume (+16% over 2015). Listings, which may be the Achilles Heel in the coming years, declined 6% from the prior year (1,447 in 2016), marking the market’s sixth straight drop.
With listings (supply)to decrease and purchases (demand) increasing, properties may experience added pricing pressure. This supply/demand dynamic (aka Absorption Rate) is supported in 2016 by the 8% average price increase to $534,000.
The path that the market has taken since 2008 has been improving at a fairly consistent rate. Although interest rates may be creeping up this year, they typically do not have a drastic impact on resort markets. Although they do impact entry level buyers where every point makes it more difficult to qualify.

The lack of vertical supply is going to be more of an issue in 2017 (and even in 2018). There are no new multi-family projects on the near horizon. Due to shorter supply and increased demand, expect the 2017 market to make a move to more of a seller’s market. And post 1,260 to 1,285 transactions with total dollar volume between $725m to $750m resulting in an average price increase to $575,000.

2017 Winter Carnival Poster

2017 Winter Carnival poster unveiled

On December 30, 2016, the 2017 Winter Carnival Commemorative Poster was unveiled at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s annual Stars at Night Gala.

Steamboat Winter Carnival Poster

Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival Poster

The commemorative poster program, initiated and organized by Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, raised over $15,000 for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) in 2016, its inaugural year. The goal is to surpass that benchmark in 2017. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the SSWSC . The program was started as an vision and an effort to create a connection between Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s local advocacy program with the Arts and athletics in Steamboat.

Chula Beauregard

This year, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty commissioned local artist Chula Beauregard to create a one-of-a-kind piece for the 2nd Annual Commemorative Poster Program. Chula’s oil-on-canvas creation, perfectly captures the essence of Winter Carnival and the excitement that the event brings to Steamboat Springs. It depictis the fireworks over Howelsen Hill during the Winter Carnival Night Extravaganza,

When Chula first set out to create the piece, she wanted to give her creativity the space that it needs to really flow. So, she didn’t narrow in on one specific theme. Instead, she created four different works, each portraying a different aspect of the spirit of Winter Carnival. Once the four pieces were presented to Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, Chula worked with SSIR to choose the one that best captured the essence of Winter Carnival. Including the color, vibrancy and excitement of Steamboat during the event.

Once the original artwork was created, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty Art Director Gretchen Coleman added the graphic elements to transform the art into a poster. The original piece, along with the first three limited edition, signed and numbered, framed prints were auctioned at the Stars at Night Gala, raising over $5000 for the SSWSC.

The presentation of the art at the Stars at Night Gala marks the beginning of the Winter Carnival Poster program. A limited number of framed, signed and numbered prints are available for purchase, and poster prints are also available. Prints will be available for purchase at Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s three offices, as well as Lyon Drug, during the street events at Winter Carnival and at the Night Extravaganza on February 11, 2017.

Sotheby’s picks Chula Beauregard to create 2017 Winter Carnival poster art

— After commissioning the art for a Winter Carnival poster that raised $15,000 for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club last year, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty is carrying on the tradition in 2017.

This year’s Winter Carnival poster art is by local artist Chula Beauregard, who put together four carnival-themed art pieces for a Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty committee to choose from. The favored piece of art is an oil on canvas piece that depicts a crowd watching a stream of lights make its way down Howelsen Hill as fireworks shoot off into the sky.  “Her work is very traditional oil and canvas but also incorporates a lot of color,” said Traci Smith, director of marketing for Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty. “We looked at all four paintings, and we chose the one that best fit the spirit of Winter Carnival for a poster to put out there.”

Beauregard said she first did a Winter Carnival themed series of paintings in 2012 and 2013, and enjoyed revisiting the ideas now with her more perfected technique. “When I did that series a few years ago, I was trying to capture the culture of Steamboat,” Beauregard said. “Winter Carnival is really the heart and soul of Steamboat, it’s such an all encompassing event”

Smith said, historically, there were Winter Carnival posters created for the event each year, and the realty company is looking forward to continuing the dropped tradition in the coming years. Last year’s commissioned poster art was created by Jill Bergman. For this year’s poster, Smith sought out local artists during First Friday Artwalk events and invited those interested to submit a piece of carnival-themed art.

Beauregard’s original artwork was auctioned Friday during the Stars at Night fundraiser, raising $3,250 for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. Thirty limited edition, signed, numbered and framed prints of the poster will be sold by Sotheby’s for $300 a piece, with all proceeds going to the Winter Sports Club. Poster prints are expected to go on sale next week for $10 each.

Last year, the poster project garnered $15,000 for the club, and Steamboat Sotheby’s is hoping to surpass that amount with sales from this year’s posters.

The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club is grateful for the time and resources given by Steamboat Sotheby’s for the project, said Lane Malone, the Winter Sports Club’s director of development. “There is a great synergy in this creative collaboration to support youth, athletics and the arts in Steamboat Springs,” Malone said.

Smith said the posters are a fitting project for the realty company to sponsor. “It’s a great way to do something fun for the community,” Smith said.

To purchase a framed, limited edition print, contact Smith at 970-879-8100 or email [email protected]. Poster prints will be available next week at Lyon Drug or any Steamboat Sotheby’s location.

The 104th annual Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival takes place Feb. 8 to 12.

  • The Median Sales Price was down 14.5 percent to $470,000 for single family homes and 6.3 percent to $329,000 for townhouse-condo properties.
  • Days on Market decreased 5.3 percent for single family homes and 32.4 percent for condo properties.

Financial markets were volatile in the days surrounding the presidential election, but they self-corrected and reached new heights soon after. Long-term indicators of what it will be like to have a real estate developer for a president remain fuzzy, but the outcome is not likely to be dull. Prior to the election, trend shift was hard to come by, and unemployment rates have not budged since August 2015. Post-election, mortgage rates are up and so are opinions that a trend shift is likely in the near future.
