  The Official Land Title Steamboat Market stats just came out today and it was a great month.  We have been busy all summer with 4 of the 5 best months we have ever had (even compared to when the market was nearly 4 times bigger) and the broader market is picking up it's pace now too.  The Steamboat Real Estate Market grew 26.2% over October 2012 and 15.5% YTD vs. 2012.
