We are about half way through the 2016/17 Schweitzer Mountain Resort Ski Season. Having just enjoyed the MLK weekend with the Northern Lights celebration there is still much to look forward to on Schweitzer Mountain. Timing is just right to have your own condo in time for spring skiing end of this season. There is a wide variety of Schweitzer Ski Condo’s to choose from.

Past Schweitzer Ski Condo sales show the market to be steady with prices and transactions improving.
4th quarter 2015 has 6 sold with average sales price of $141,975.
1st quarter 2016 showing 6 sold with average sale price of $222,966.
4th quarter 2016 showing 10 sold with average sale price of $216,680.
Present sales for 2017 showing 1 sold at price of $120,000.
With the current inventory of below $300,000 Schweitzer condo’s at 13 the absortion rate is just over 6 months based on 1st quarter sales of 2016. If we take into account the prices holding firm from 1st quarter 2016 to 4th quarter 2016 and the increased transactions from 4th quarters of 2015 and 2016 I believe we should look more to a 4 to 5 month absorbtion rate. While we would like to take the 4th quarter sales of 2016 for absorbtion rate, sales do typically slow 1st quarter on a ski resort.
While this may appear to be bad news for buyers it is not. Interest rates are still at all time lows, between 3.8 and 4. Condo prices for a ski resort condo are still an excellent value. Schweitzer Mountain Resort continues to make improvements that will only increase property values of all on the mountain.
