Steamboat Springs Market Update Q4 2021

The Commercial and Residential overall market conditions in Steamboat Springs and surrounding areas has been very strong for Sellers. 2020/21 was the strongest I have seen in the 25 years I have been selling real estate in the Steamboat Springs area.

Industrial/commercial space has been severely impacted, with virtually no listings to choose from. With very little new construction and no vacancy in warehouse to mixed use units Buyers have had a hard time finding a place to hang their hats for their business or to store their toys.  This and Cost of Construction has pushed the PPSF to levels we have not seen before. 

Industrial / Commercial Land is virtually gone in Steamboat Springs. Buyers will have to act right away if they come across something for sale or start heading west to Hayden and Craig. 

You will find this in the residential side of the market also. Commercial interest rates are still great for buyers with Local banks. Unless there is a change in the economy or the county frees up land to be developed, I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
