  We are lucky to live in Steamboat in any economy but it will be even better as things recover and the economy makes it easier on local families.  It looks like we have more to be thankful for as we look at October 2012 Real Estate results for Steamboat. Stan Urban published his stats this morning. Dollar volume is up 37% and transactions are up 20% for October 2012 which mean average sales prices are up as the mix of properties sold shifts up and the percentage of distressed homes decreases.   It is not a recovery yet given sales are up 4% and transactions are down 16% year to date in 2012 but it sure beats when things were going down with no indication of a bottom.  That said recovery is in process in more parts of the Steamboat market, distressed

  It's November and Silverleaf pulled the condos they own in Trailhead Lodge at Wild Horse Meadows off the market a few days ago.  Last fall they bought the debt to get the unsold condos, sold a few at high prices, then did little to sell more. The Trailhead Auction this spring was the result.
