The Gondola closed for the summer season at midnight on Sunday, October 16th, marking the unofficial start of Telluride's fleeting fall "off-season." Many local business owners use this quieter time as an opportunity to deep clean their spaces, restock, travel, or simply take some well-deserved time off in order to regroup before the upcoming ski season.

The San Juan high country is green and popping with wildflowers, creating the perfect backdrop for hiking and biking adventures.

In the real estate world, despite the first decrease in overall dollar volume in recent history, average sales prices are still up 31% in San Miguel County (SMC). Still, it feels like we are on the cusp of a shift in the local market. Obviously, it’s hard to know exactly what that means, but here are the tea leaves we’re reading:

As we parse through 2022’s first quarter data here at Telluride Properties, we find that most resort markets have seen a decline in the number of sales year-over-year due to a lack of inventory but mixed results for dollar volume of sales. While a few markets such as Jackson Hole may be experiencing dollar volume declines, significant dollar volume increases are still happening in Telluride, Big Sky and Aspen (while the Hamptons remain steady). This may indicate a change as we emerge from the pandemic, where radically low inventories are our own “new normal” (only 5 homes currently available in Telluride and 9 in Mountain Village), causing an overall decline in sales volume while values in these areas continue to rise…
