KEYSTONE ” In a timely follow-up to last week’s Mountain Travel Symposium, the Summit County’s real-estate professionals will get a regional and national economic forecast zeroing in on some improvement in the market.

Last week’s symposium speakers offered a mixed outlook for next season in terms of ticket sales and lodging. They emphasized flexibility and specialization, as well as up-to-date communications, as tools to address challenging economic times.

Land and home development and sales are equally important to the economy of mountain towns. According to a media advisory from the Summit Association of Realtors, Yun’s data shows an uptick in the sales index and rising December home sales ” potentially hopeful signs for Summit County and the country.

The Summit group said in its statement that home-buying incentives packed into the federal stimulus plan are also a positive note.

Yun’s message is that, while things won’t change overnight, we may be headed in the right direction, according to the Summit Realtors.

The presentation is slated for 8:30-10 a.m. Wednesday at the Keystone Conference Center.
