Here in Crested Butte, the winter season is wrapping up to a good finale. We had a big surge of tourists that visited the community, most of whom experienced and participated in a lot of winter snow events and had a taste of what it’s like to be a true Coloradan. We also had a lot of festivities, ranging from Mardi Gras to the Crafted Tasting Event, all of which were highly successful.
Now that we are in April, we are going through the transitional change of the mud season, a local term used to describe a time period in late winter and early spring. This is a time where the ice melt and certain areas become muddy. Mud season is also know as the shoulder season or off season, when many tourist return home.
However, despite this fact, there is still a good number of tourists that remain and continue to come in. For sellers, these tourists are those we should keep our eyes on. These could be intentional tourists that either want to come and experience the mud season or those who are considering making this their home.

So what does all this mean to you?

The trend in home sales is improving. Despite winter, being a hard season to showcase properties to potential buyers, home sales were at an all time high, comparing it to the previous year. We can only wait and see how things improve during spring and summer. With many activities scheduled and planned during these seasons, there will be many tourists coming in and, thus, potential home buyers.
