Telluride | Year End 2019

Telluride is a former mining town that has blossomed into a destination for those with a passion for the mountains. A year-round calendar of activities keeps visitors and residents busy no matter the season with hiking, mountain biking, and a schedule of eclectic festivals in the summer and world-class skiing in the winter. It’s no wonder people are drawn to this unique and historic community.

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty produces a Micro Market Report analyzing Telluride’s real estate performance in 2019 compared to that of 2018. The year-end report proves outstanding increases in activity for San Miguel County and many of the neighborhoods within.
