The average sold price has increased +15.98% over the same period of time in 2013 from $835,109 to $968,568. While this is a sizeable jump, it does not mean that all homes in Breckenridge and Blue River have appreciated this much over the previous year. This may be attributed to the increase in sales over $2 million which have almost doubled from 10 in 2013 to 19 in 2014.
