Some sectors are still asleep, but other areas are wide awake. The overall number are rather mixed upon a quick glance, but digging deeper, things are getting better.

May was up slightly in gross dollar volume over April but down significantly over last year. Transactions are lagging from last month and last year. This is largely do to the fact that we had 63 fractional sales in May 2011 and only 16 in May 2012. Because so many transactions were fractional last year, the fact that dollar volume was similar, this mean that prices just might be going up.

And looking at average price per foot, we see many areas are trending up as well.

In 2011, the average sales price per foot in Old Town was $285. Today, that average is up to $314 per foot. So there are some areas around Steamboat seeing prices going up.

With dollar volume being higher in May ($31,562,700) over April ($31,406,700) with fewer transactions, this is a great sign that prices are in fact getting stronger.
