“As Sothebys’ broker Tim Estin noted in his Jan. 3, 2019 newsletter (sic) recapping 2018, last year was the “third-best year of the past seven since 2012 in terms of sales dollar volume and unit sales.” Estin also tempered headlines about a bursting bubble and looming recession, saying: “I remain cautiously optimistic, a term much over used, with this caveat. There is plenty of Aspen developer inventory remaining in the active listing pipeline that is aggressively and optimistically priced. It is priced accordingly due to limited inventory within their respective property category. New or new-built product continues to command premium pricing and there are solid comparables to justify the high prices. But certainly, some wishful thinking exists within these listings.” ”
