Aspen Real Estate

 

"Aspen real estate

2016 when global

uncertainty curtailed

August 2017
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
how long can
this last? 
Who
really knows?

The Estin Report: March 2016 Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Market Snapshot was released April 10, 2016 in Current Reports.  The Monthly Snapshots are posted on or near the 1st Monday of the month.

Excerpt from the Mar 16 Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Market Snapshot: 

"Bottom line: The market continued to tank in March. Aspen, which accounts for approximately 70% of total Aspen Snowmass combined sales, was down particularly hard... Buyer demand is off sharply contrasting with a rising inventory of properties for sale at ever-higher ask prices. A disconnect to be sure. Luxury sales of properties over $10M (approx. 30% of all sales dollars in 2015) plummeted -86% from (7) in Q1 2015 to (1) in Q1 2016. The single over $10M sale in the quarter was for a 4 bdrm penthouse condo at Monarch on the Park in downtown Aspen selling for $15M at an all-time record setting $4,275 sq ft. Buyers are seeing greater negotiating spread, and, for those sitting on the sidelines, this may be an opportune entry period. In Q1 2016, the total market is off just –3% from same time in 2014 which turned out to be the best in the 5 preceding years as well as the conclusive recession turnaround year."

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.
