STEAMBOAT SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY

2018 MARKET REPORT

SUPPLY OR DEMAND—WHAT TURNED IN 2018?

With 8 years of steady growth in transactions that averaged a 15% increase year-over-year, why did the 2018 Steamboat Springs real estate market see a drop in transactions of 7%? A quick answer might be that the demand has dropped. However, the drop of transactions may not be due to a reduction in demand, but in a reduction in supply to meet demand.

Less inventory led to less buying opportunities, which in turn led to fewer transactions. With lower
demand would have come a reduction of property values. However, the average price of all properties sold increased by 13% from 2017 to nearly $600,000; the 2nd highest on record.

In 2017 the Steamboat Springs MLS posted 1,373 transactions; 4th best recorded and highest since the 2008 crash. The 2008 crash brought on a rash of listings in 2008–2010. From 2010 to 2016, when buyers started coming back into the market, listings declined 7% annually as demand began to outpace supply. However, in 2017 that percentage tripled to -21%, setting the stage coming into 2018, which posted the 4th lowest number of listings the MLS has seen.

Despite transaction decline, dollar volume increased 6% in 2018 to $761 million; the 2nd best in Steamboat MLS history. This is only the second time since 1996 the phenomenon of transactions declining and dollar volume simultaneously increasing has occurred.

Steamboat Absorption Rate

INVENTORY ANALYSIS

When analyzing the real estate market, one of the factors that need to be taken into
consideration is the absorption rate.
Absorption rate is the number of months it would take to sell
the currently listed properties in the market and it is used to
attempt to predict home prices and sales activity going
forward.
The absorption rate noted on these charts shows how many months it would take for the all
of the currently listed properties in that category to sell, based on the sales activity over the
past year.

Mid Year 2018 Real Estate Market Report

steamboat market trends

HOW’ S THE MARKET IN STEAMBOAT?

That is the million dollar question. While it is true that the Denver Metro area is experiencing a very hot seller’s market, other areas around the country, such as some cities in the Pacific Northwest, report that the real estate market is showing some signs of cooling off.

So what is happening in Steamboat Springs and Routt County? The answer may not be as cut-and-dry as one would think.

In a rural market and more importantly, a resort market (of which Steamboat Springs and Routt County are both), the answer depends on many factors that cannot be considered or evaluated by looking at basic statistics or isolated sales data. One segment of the market may be very “hot”—a full blown seller’s market—whereas other segments may be slow, stagnant, or possibly declining. So it is too simple a statement to say that Routt County’s real estate market is “hot.”

Generally speaking, Routt County is experiencing a very active market that is preferential to sellers in most categories. This is especially true in the single family home1160 Fairway Woods Dr market, and for properties priced under $1M. The median sales price for single-family homes in Steamboat increased 12.1% in the first half of 2018 when compared to the same time period in 2017 – from $681,000 to $775,000. In fact, the median sales price for single family homes in every area around Routt County has increased when compared to 2017.

However, for homes priced over $1M, there are more listings and fewer sales – more supply than demand. So while we see values continuing to increase at a nominal rate with each sale that occurs, the absorption rate, or number of months that it will take for every property currently listed to be sold, is much higher for properties in the higher price ranges.

With property values increasing and accompanying inventory being depleted across most categories, there has been an increased interest in vacant land properties. In Steamboat Springs, the median sales price for vacant land went from $260,000 in January–June 2017, to $325,000 in 2018—an increase of 20%. We saw similar trends throughout most of Routt County, with the median sales price in the South Valley Area increasing from $325,000 to $397,000 (+18.1%), and in the Elk River and North Routt areas from $160,750 to $219,000 (+26.6%). Building costs are running approximately $350/sf to $500/sf, depending on quality, location and design.

real estate marketThe condo and townhome markets have stayed relatively flat in Steamboat Springs, showing an increase in median sales price of 4.2% for condos, and 1.9% for townhomes. However, the average days on market for condos and townhomes has decreased substantially, down 38.5% for condos in the first half
of 2018 when compared to 2017.

Unlike more urban areas where there are many transactions and a property’s value can be fairly easily determined by looking at recent sales in the neighborhood/subdivision, the types of properties within a certain subdivision or area in Routt County can vary widely. Property type, location and condition, as well as comparable properties, motivation of the seller to sell, and price point all influence value. With relatively few transactions in a given month, these variables and lack of sales can have a significant impact on the market value of the property.

The information presented in these micro market reports will better help tell the story of current real estate market conditions in Steamboat Springs and Routt County, but there is no general answer to the question: “How’s the real estate market?” Accurate analysis requires the skill and knowledge of a professional who is well-versed in all of the intricacies and nuances that exist in a rural and resort market like ours.
