This Fall has been one of the most spectacular I have seen in a long time. The warmer temperatures have really added to its enjoyment. I hope you have had a chance to get here and enjoy the weather. Stratton was incredibly busy over the weekend with parking lots filled with people hiking, hay rides, learning about falcons, face painting and of course shopping and dining. Verde had the busiest night short of New Year's on Saturday. Stratton is investing $7million in mountain improvements, snow cats, new gondola (for 2014-15) and more. We continue to be busy showing Stratton Seasonal rentals and Stratton properties for sale.
While there are still a lot of inexpensive properties selling, there are sales in the higher ranges which is a good sign of the market increasing. The number of new listings is down, while the percentage of closing has increased. This is a normal trend as we are coming close to ski season and people are working hard to make their plans. Still not to late to find a home to rent or buy here at Stratton.
