Mid-Year 2017

Aspen Real Estate

 

"Aspen real estate
is in turn-a-round

mode from a dismal
2016 when global

uncertainty curtailed
buyers' appetite for
luxury high end

2nd home purchases.

Post-election 2016,

July 2017
Aspen Real Estate
Snapshot

Bottom Line:

 

The Aspen market
continues to be
in hyper-sales
territory. Activity
is and feels
super-charged.
Add to that
momentum, early
August is the
time when buyers
typically get real
estate focused with
summer's ending in
sight. This is the
busiest time of year.
We should see a
steady stream of
offers and under
contracts now
through the end
of September.

Excerpt from 2nd Quarter and 1st Half 2016 Report Executive Summary: (The recently posted June and July 2016 YTD Market Snapshots continue the trend of poor performance heading into August.)

     "In the 1st Half of 2016, the combined Aspen Snowmass real estate market turned down suddenly and sharply. The total dollar volume of sales fell 43% from $700M in H1 2015 to $396M in H1 2016. Units sales, the more reliable indicator of market activity, dropped 38% from (230) sales in H1 2015 to (143) sales in H1 2016.

     The Aspen real estate market alone, typically accounting for 70-80% of the total combined Aspen Snowmass marketplace but 66% in H1 2016, experienced its worst first half year since H1 2010 in unit sales and its worst in dollars sales since H1 2009 - periods in the grip of the economic crisis and indeed the bleakest of the bleak.

     The 1st Half 2016 market performance is a stunning reversal from the sizzling market of 2015 when sales in a number of categories and neighborhoods were the best of the past ten years. The past 6 month slowdown combined with the increase of active listings for sale is a recipe for prices to fall.

     At present, the market has shifted to the favor of buyers..."
