Land Title Guarantee Company June 2010 Summit County real estate Market Analysis

Attached you will find the Land Title Guarantee Company June 2010 Market Analysis from Summit County.

June Remarks:

•    Market Snapshot:  Overall, for the 19 different areas that the Clerk and Recorder post transactions- the gross Median Single Family price in June for 6 months compared to the full year of 2009 was down 10% ($624,650-YTD 2010 compared to $695,750-2009), Median Price of Multi-Family was up 6% ( $350,000-YTD 2010 compared to $330,000-2009), and Vacant Land was
down 22% ( $265,000-YTD 2010-$340,000-2009).

•    Summit County Real Estate Volume Graph (Gross): June 2010 saw a huge spike compared to June 2009- the 20  One Ski Hill Place Transactions played a role in the increase and monetary volume. Monetary volume was 146% up compared to June 2009 with One Ski Hill Place included. Monetary volume was up just 65% if we take One Ski Hill Place out of the equation, with is still a big improvement over last June 2009. Transactions were up in June with One Ski Hill Place compared to June 2009 by 73%, without One Ski Hill Place, the transactions were up 47%- so overall June showed signs of improvement in Summit County.

•    Residential Summit County real estate Market Sales by Price Point: The most active price areas in June were under $200K! One Ski Hill Place transactions impacted the higher price ranges.  The Single Family Average price YTD continues to be comparable to the full year of 2006.

•    Historical Cost Breakdown: Year to Date 2010 shows 119 more Residential Improved Unit transactions vs. YTD June 2009. Gross Volume has also increased by $60,468,800 YTD 2010 vs. YTD 2009.

•    Market Analysis % Change: YTD Monetary Volume for ALL transactions recorded is up 25% compared to YTD June 2009.  YTD transaction volume for ALL transactions recorded is up 27% compared to YTD June 2009.The numbers still don’t compare to anything that we saw since 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009 YTD.

•    Market Analysis by Area YTD 2010: The only two areas in Summit that showed an increase with the Median Residential Price were Breckenridge and Summit Cove in June. The three most active areas in June both with $ and # of transactions: Breckenridge- with 20 transactions included in the 50, Breckenridge Golf Course area and Silverthorne/Wildernest-which might explain the high number of Residential transactions under $200K.
