The Summit REALTORS® Board of Directors thanks the community, clients, and members who stood up during the marathon of a hearing Tuesday evening (five and a half hours!) to discuss a significant series of changes to short-term rentals in the Town of Breckenridge. Due to our joint advocacy, we are pleased to say that one of the measures the real estate community needed to improve the proposal was included.  While the Mayor supported our ideas to address properties under contract or under construction, and the idea of tourism overlay districts, there was no effort by the Council to make any additional changes to the ordinance. A recap of the meeting and comments are attached.

Breckenridge and Summit County are very cyclical in nature with regards to real estate sales.  We typically sell 70% of all real estate in the summer months.  Typically from June through October with a final rush at the end before the winter holiday season.

Sellers generally look towards putting their property on the market at the end of ski season when they have finished using or renting for the season.  A Realtor will have to work on getting the property ready for sale and marketing which generally results in the property being launched to market in June.
