LIV Sotheby’s International Realty just released a Micro Market Report for the Summit County real estate market, comparing the performance of many popular resorts and neighborhoods from 2017 to 2018. Collectively in Summit County, the year-over-year results show a rise in competition, with average price increasing by 7%, yet listings sold decreasing slightly by 5.4%. In addition, total dollar volume sold increased by 1.1%. These three metrics prove that 2018 was a healthy market as buyers were willing to pay more and less properties were available for purchase – a very positive trend for sellers.
