San Miguel County Real Estate transaction volume remains strong as the third quarter finished up 3% compared to third quarter 2014. Over all dollar volume is down 24%, however, this is primarily attributable to a $40M sale that occurred in August of 2014 for the Hotel Madeline. Sans this sale, 2015 is right on track to match or exceed 2014, which was the biggest year in terms of dollar volume and transaction volume since the downturn in 2008.  

Total dollar volume through September 30th in 2015 was $346.9M compared to $383.9M in 2014, although September turned out to be the second biggest September in the last 6 years with $53.1M in recorded sales.

I anticipated that Mountain Village would see a surge of activity based on evidence of

In my first quarter update for 2015 I stated that I was eager to see if 2015 would prove to buck a “W” recovery trend as 2014 was a significant crest year in the wave recovery that started in 2010. The 1st quarter of 2015 started 9% down in dollar volume and 2% down in transaction volume which was lending early support that 2015 could be a trough year.  I also stated that the “off season” consisting of the months of April and May were as busy as I could ever remember over my 28 year career.  It turns out that this busy time period for many in the brokerage community morphed into a significant amount of closings.  As a result, the 2nd quarter was up 1% in dollar volume and 5% in transaction volume despite competing against a record June of 2014 that

May 7, 2015 (TELLURIDE) — Nine years ago, Telluride Hospital District (THD) officials and administrators began their search for a new site for the region’s health care needs, driven by the aim to find a site that could accommodate the area’s projected growth and before the region’s limited buildable sites were developed. Last month the THD took one step closer to bringing that vision to fruition when they closed Phase One of a new facility’s pre-design phase and voted on a conceptual plan.

Mahlum Architects, a firm selected by THD to execute the initial planning and pre-design phases for the proposed new medical center in
