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

many asking
how long can
this last?

Excerpt from Executive Summary:

     "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..."
