Vacant Lots/Land Sales
154 lot transactions—some are multiple lots—all but two in the subdivision
Land Sale Summary
Lot sale prices ranged from $2,000 to $108,000. The two highest priced were $101.5k for 9 lots in Chalet II (4.67 acres, Cordial), and $108k for 8 lots at the top of the development in Chalet I (3.86 acres, Pine Cone). High dollar sales also were acreage in the grants. High dollar lot sales are all multiple lot consolidations (e.g., only one annual assessment).
Other significant land sale was a development tract in the townhomes. The land was previously approved for 20 residences. Do not know the plans of the new owner/builder.
Lot inventory is down from 1 year ago.
100 lots available a year ago compared to 41 lots on the market now. Represents a supply of about 4 months. Prices are rising, but land is still very affordable by quality of life and construction measures. The significant difference is that lots that in prior years would be considered unsellable are now selling. Buyers are interested in lots that require water/sewer line extensions or have an unpaid tap. In the past such lots would go begging. A few lots in Casita Park have sold quickly, including lots with no services and no paid tap.
2 buildings in town: $477K and $597K, Mystic Rose and the Crestone Inn. Nada Hermitage sold for $1.3 million after concessions.
