August 20-27, 2017 Estin Report: Last Week’s Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Sales & Stats: Closed (5) + Under Contract / Pending (11)

Excerpt from July 2017 Snapshot:
“The Aspen market continues to be in hyper-sales territory. Activity is and feels super-charged.

We should see a steady stream of offers and under contracts now through the end of September. The Aspen market is bifurcated: there’s inside the roundabout and there’s outside. Aspen’s most coveted neighborhoods…”
Estin Report: Mid-Year 2017 State of Aspen Real Estate was released in June 2017 in Current Reports. The 32-Page report is available on-line as PDF and is available in print in kiosks at the airport, the info booth across from Paradise Bakery town and at Sothebys offices at 415 E Hyman in the Mall and 300 S Spring opposite the Art Museum.
“Flip Job” Examples: See recent Before/After Redevelopmentin the Flip Jobs Section near the bottom of the Menu Bar on the left. These are properties that have been recently or are currently in the process of redevelopment for re-sale. This post is updated (06/14/17) as additional re-sale properties come on the market at significantly higher prices.
A “Read more” link has been recently added under the 1st of last week’s sold properties displayed below. This will improve site performance.
