July Market Insights 2023

The Steamboat Springs real estate market in July 2023 has maintained its momentum, with high demand, limited inventory, and increasing prices shaping the landscape. Investment property in the “green rental zone” continues to fly off the shelves based on the ski resort upgrades, thriving tourist economy, and investors seeking rental income opportunities. Well-priced and well-marketed homes are often snapped up within days of listing. Some sellers are reaching too high on price and their days on market reflect that.

About the Author

Born and raised in Steamboat Springs, Ben spent his childhood at Howelsen Hill dreaming of someday competing in the Winter Olympics. He realized that dream by representing the United States in the 2018 Winter Olympics, becoming one of 100 Olympians from Steamboat Springs dating back to 1932. 

Ben believes in learning from the best, which is why he returned to Steamboat Springs and joined forces with Cam Boyd – former co-owner of Steamboat Sotheby’s and one of the highest producing agents in the country. Together, Cam and Ben created the Boyd & Berend Group, a team focused on the luxury real estate market in Steamboat Springs. Last year, the Boyd & Berend Group worked with buyers and sellers on 47 transactions totaling over $72m – solidifying them as a market share leader within the Yampa Valley. 

Ben’s approach to the business centers around strong communication, building lasting relationships, and bringing a persistant energy to each transaction – which he attributes to his prior career as a professional athlete. 

Ben was elected to the Parks and Recreation Commission in 2021, where he continues to serve. He also volunteers as a ski coach at the Winter Sports Club and leads Olympic Heritage Tours for the local Tread of Pioneers Museum. Outside of work, Ben is known for his grand adventures on bikes and skis.
