MARKET GRAPHS 2020 January- November

2020 has been an unexpectantly record year in Telluride Real Estate. When the ski area and all services were
shut down March 16th due to COVID-19 we all expected to see a repeat of 2009 in the market. However, as
we were able to reopen in June the inflow of visitors and buyers was almost overwhelming. People uprooted
their families from urban areas coast to coast to mountain sanctuaries like ours in droves.

The number of new contracts and dollar volume broke records every month since June with a year to date new contract total of 666
contracts worth $1.158 billion compared to 2019 yearend total of 439 contracts at $641.9 million. These sales are mainly on improved
properties such as homes and condos but vacant land sales have also been off the charts. This is causing challenges in inventory and price
escalation. Due to this we have seen many long-time locals “Cash Out” and move down valley and surrounding areas including Norwood
and Ridgway, where the marks have been hot as well.

Call or email us for more additional information or to see how we can help you navigate this market.
