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 Oct 2016 YTD Aspen Snowmass Real Estate Market Snapshot was posted on Mon Nov 7th in Current ReportsThe Monthly Snapshots are usually posted on or near the 1st Monday of the month. 

Oct 2016 Market Snapshot excerpt:

"Oct ‘16 is down considerably compared to the same time last year - as was Sep ‘16. Demand (sales) is way off; supply (inventory of properties for sale) is increasing. Prices, with the exception of unique and like-new properties, are trending downward especially as sellers seasonally adjust downward to post-summer, pre-winter realities and greater motivation sets in. An average 5-10% discount to ask price is common, and in some cases more. Pages 7 and 9 of this Market Snapshot identify sales by Aspen and Snowmass Village location/neighborhood with average sales to ask and original price discounts.

The time of maximum uncertainty is often the best time to get into the market. There have been some great buys in the past two months, and buyers would do well to dig deep, find motivated sellers and pull the purchase trigger. This "down" year is not going to last indefinitely and many believe there will be a post-election turnaround sooner than later."
