Resort Town Real Estate 2nd Quarter Market Trends

The 2nd quarter has proven to be quite interesting for Routt County, Colorado, as well as several other mountain resort community counties around Colorado. If you read my June 2012 Market Report, you’ll remember that it contained some great news regarding all of the positive trends we’ve been seeing lately in the local as well as national market. After reading the 2nd Quarter Market Summary, it looks like some of those positive trends have been confirmed. You can take a look at the full report by clicking the link below.
