Bottom Line Aug 2, 21 - excerpt from H121 report: 

We are more than half-way through the summer season and things remain hyper-active and busy. We are seeing new properties come on the market at speculative prices where recent sold comps are no longer necessarily determinative reference points. Today's sold is not tomorrow's's 15-30% higher. Brokers are scratching their heads and saying "I guess we'll see..." In a low inventory real estate market with surging demand, pricing and appraising is exceedingly difficult and is simply whatever the market will bear.

In H1 2021, there were 36 single family homes sold over $10M versus 15 same time last year, that’s up 140%; the median Aspen home sold at $9.7M, the avg price was $12.5M. Homes are regularly selling at almost $2,000 per sq ft, and for newer or remodeled like-new product, it's now $3,000-4,000 sq ft. Six months ago it was $2,500-3,000 sq ft.

Inventory of Aspen homes for sale has fallen to its lowest level in 10 years. From (782) properties for sale in H1 12 to (443) in H1 21, down 5.5% per year or down 43% total.

In Snowmass Village, inventory of homes for sale has fallen even more: From (589) homes for sale in H112 to 304 in H121, down 6.4% per year or down 48% in total.

From 2009-2019, the typical Snowmass Village discount to Aspen home prices plummeted to 50-60%. Before then and historically, it was 25-30%. In the past 18 months, as Base Village is comes closer to completion and build-out, the gap has been closing to now its approximately 30-40%.
