In the four primary areas... Read more »

Resort at Squaw Creek 1st Qtr 2014 Market Report

Sale prices on closed escrows are rising at the Resort at Squaw Creek.  The number of condominiums sold in 2013 was just two more than in 2012 but the total dollar volume of sales was 61% higher than the previous year.
