When is the best time to buy a home in Breckenridge?

In our opinion, there’s never a wrong time to buy a home in Breckenridge. However, we tell our clients to start looking in spring and stay on top of new listings as they come on the market in mid to late April when the ski areas close. Historically, this is the time of year when inventory increases (which gives buyers more options). When you work with Dwell Summit, we’ll notify you of new listings the moment they hit the market—and sometimes sooner!
