Aspen Real Estate
Snapshot

Bottom Line:

 

Aspen real estate
is cruising along
in overdrive. Aug.
is traditionally a
very active period
for sales, and this
Aug. more so than
ever. Sales at all
prices points are
exceedingly strong
while inventory of
properties for sale
is declining signif-
icantly. Areas with
particular sales
velocity are Downtown
Aspen, Red Mtn and
the West End.
Outlying areas are
experiencing slower
sales at lower prices
- there’s value in them
hills. There's
concern the market
is frothy with
many asking

really knows?

The Estin Report: Feb 2016 Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Market Snapshot was released 03/12/2016 v10.5. in Current Reports. On Monday afternoon, 3/14/16, I made some significant changes to my "Bottom Line" comments. Please review.

The Monthly Snapshots are posted on or near the 1st Monday of the month. Two additional pages have been added to these Snapshots. They are 1) Single Family Home Sales by Aspen and Snowmass Village neighborhoods; 2) Condo Sales by Number of Bedrooms. Both contain figures based on the subject month and the most recent (3) month average.

See recent Before/After redevelopment 'flip job' examples in Miscellaneous Info at the bottom of the Menu Bar on the left. These are properties that have been recently or are currently being redeveloped for re-sale. This post is updated (02/16/16) as additional re-sale properties come on the market at significantly higher prices.

Last week's Aspen and Snowmass sales activity appears below. Scroll down the page for photos and details of weekly sales and under contract / pending Aspen properties in the past 4 weeks. For earlier dates, use the down arrow to search the blog archives by year and date to 2008. Or use SearchEstinAspen in the menu bar to search by topic, address, subdivision, complex, date, etc.  If it's about Aspen real estate, the information should be here.

Aspen Snowmass Solds Last Week: 

MLS #127956 - Townsite of Aspen, West End, 308 N 1st Street, Aspen, CO: Redevelopment property. Sold Price: $9,000,000/$2,325 sq ft; unfurnished. More details below photos.

        

MLS #127956 - Townsite of Aspen, West End, 308 N 1st Street, Aspen, CO: Redeveloment property. Sold Price: $9,000,000/$2,325 sq ft; unfurnished. Asking Price: $7,500,000. (Original Price: $7,500,000 and 870 days on the market since 12/19/2013.) This is a 1890 built and 1987 remodeled, 5 bedroom/5 bath/2 half-bath, 3,870 sq ft single family home with 1 car garage on a 12,004 sq ft lot. This property sold on Aug. 15. 2015 but is being recorded in the MLS now for the first time. There are (2) normal size West End lots at 6.000 sq ft each that sold to the same buyer at $4.2M (east side lot with historic home pictured) and $4.8M (west side corner lot). The property had 10-15 full priced offers, but the sellers condition that they (an estate) find a suitable replacement property hampered the selling process - they were unwilling to agree to a time limitation to find/secure the replacement. Buyers balked. In this case, the longer it took to find that replacement, demand for this exquisite size holding and location soared as the market took off. Broker comments are "This rare ESTATE in one of the West End's most desirable locations offers a private park-like setting on a large corner lot yet it is less than a 3 block walk to downtown Aspen! The generously proportioned Victorian home was most recently remodeled in 1989, has 9' ceilings, a comfortable layout & includes a charming detached playhouse/office. The property consists of 2 legally subdivided 6000sf lots, each with 3240sf of FAR. This property enjoys some of the West End's best views including unobstructed views of Aspen Mtn., Independence Pass, Red Mtn.,Shadow Mtn., Willow Peak and Buttermilk. Lot 1 (MLS 13243) can be purchased separately at $4.5M and Lot 2 (MLS 132433) can be purchased separately at $3.85M, subject to HPC approvals to modify existing home. See listing broker for details." 2011 Taxes: $15,316. City of Aspen RETT Transfer Tax of approx. 1.5% payable by buyer. Under Contract Date: 04/06/2015; Sold Date: 08/17/2015.
