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.

The Sept 2016 YTD Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Market Snapshot was posted on Mon Oct 3rd in Current ReportsThe Monthly Snapshots are usually posted on or near the 1st Monday of the month.

Bottom Line Sept 2016 Snapshot Excerpt:

"Aspen real estate sales continued their downward fall in Sept 2016, continuing the year's major slide, despite the fact that Sept is typically the biggest sales month of the year.

Everyone is asking why? What's going on? ...It isn't just Aspen. The high-end luxury market is pretty much getting decimated everywhere: the Hamptons are reportedly off by 50% this year, Miami is way off, NYC high end has crashed (developer inventory surplus cited).

There is a prevalent sense of uncertainty over any number of things: first and foremost, the US election - fear of either outcome; disarray in the oil markets effecting (or not?) Aspen's significant Texas market; a slowing global economy linked especially to China's slower growth and trade imbalances; Aspen's largest foreign buyer segment from Brazil and Australia deraileddue to, respectively, a weakened economy and a plunge in commodity prices; Brexit; Mosquitoes; Terrorism...Ambient fear - the looking over of one's shoulder - what are we missing that's going to blow up, 2008 crisis-like, all over again?...Who knows ..?

All of which have combined to take many buyers out of the market. Yet the time of maximum uncertainty is very often the best time to get into the market."

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..."
