Sold! Perry Ranch

A well-known Rocky Mountain landmark, Colorado’s 470-acre Perry Ranch, sold for $11 million ($23,000+ per acre). The sellers paid $13 million for the Routt County ranch in 2007 intending to improve it and then market it as a conservation development property, but last year’s recession squelched those plans. Hall & Hall’s Brian Smith in Steamboat Springs represented the seller. Tim Casey of Mountain Marketing Associates in Breckenridge represented the buyer. The transaction closed on June 30.

The original asking price of $25 million dropped to $19.5 million and then to $16 million last year when the economy tanked. “This sale is very indicative of what we’re now seeing: 15 to 25 percent off market highs,” says Smith, referring to the spread between the sellers’ purchase price in 2007 and the 2009 sale.

“Buyers who are not trying to pinpoint the bottom of the market can find all sorts of opportunities. A lot of sellers, particularly those with a higher basis in a property, are recognizing current market conditions and adjusting their asking price,” says Smith. “What made this property such an outstanding opportunity was the size of the parcel and its proximity to downtown Steamboat Springs. The south fence line is literally one mile to the city limits. One minute you’re tucked away by yourself in a lush little valley with aspen groves and Soda Creek. Hop in your truck and five minutes later you’re on Main Street. Best of both worlds. It’s extremely difficult to find that combination near a resort town, whether it’s Steamboat, Vail, Aspen, Telluride, Jackson, or Sun Valley.”
