— The Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors reported that the first six months of 2006 were mildly off in volume and dollar sales when compared to the record numbers of 2005.

But July appears to have been a different story.

Bruce Carta of Land Title in Steamboat reports that July dollar volume surpassed $100 million to establish a new record for the month. The dollar volume represents a 103.36 percent increase over last July’s $99,463,400 in sales.

Year to date sales are now $526.9 million, compared to total sales of $885.9 million in 2005.

Carta has analyzed June sales in Routt County by category. The busiest price range was properties between $300,000 and $500,000. that range accounted for 47 sales totaling $18.7 million.

Carta’s source is the Routt County Clerk’s office. Those figures don’t necessarily coincide with numbers reported by the Board of Realtors because it accounts for properties listed and sold through Steamboat Springs Multiple Listing Service only.

The County Clerk’s office reflects all sales, including those that did not involve a Realtor.
