Nine months of 2019 have gone by. It’s almost ski season again, yaaay! Summit County real estate sales started the year slowly but we still had an optimistic outlook. We had the optimism that spring and summer would re-ignite the hot market we have been used to. That we would get one more summer of excited buyers. Spring had some promise but then not much happened. The buyers weren’t in a rush to find a place. We thought maybe it was the cold June we had and the warm weather would bring more activity. But it just didn’t happen. Sales haven’t been dreadful. They are down for the year, but just slightly. The market certainly doesn’t feel the same though. Buyers attitudes have changed and they are forcing the sellers to rethink things as well.
The market is different now and we’ll have to wait and see where it goes from here. I am not expecting any drastic changes in Summit County real estate sales in the near future. Perhaps just a continuation of the flat market we have been seeing this year.
