Estin Report: Nov. 2017 Aspen Snowmass Market Snapshot was posted on Dec 6th in Current Reports.

Nov 2017 Bottom Line

Nov 2017 continues the strong performance we’ve experienced throughout the year. We are close to beating the record year 2015.

Standout categories for the month of November are:

1) Aspen condo sales up 31% YTD while inventory of available listings is off -29%. In the 3-mos sales period from Sep-Nov 17, the avg condo/townhome sold at $1,731 sq ft over $1,346 in the same period Nov 2016, +29%.
2) Value outside Aspen Core: an example of excellent values away from the Aspen Core, Starwood had (3) sales Sep-Nov 17 at an avg $610 sq ft vs $830 sq ft same period a year ago, -26%.  The caveat: these sales were for older homes selling essentially at lot value, but for reference, compare this to the avg. (3) downtown SF home sale at $2,227 sq ft in the same period.
3) Snowmass Village values: SMV has been very active in Nov 17 with (16) sales vs (7) last year, +129%; dollar sales even better – $29.7M vs $6.9M, +331%. Of (4) Ridge Run SFH sales Sep-Nov 17, the avg sale was $635 sq ft vs $1,095 same period last year. SMV opportunities continue…in general, prices are similar, if not down incrementally, from last year.

About Aspen Village – From Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority (apcha.org):
“Aspen Village was a rental mobile home park until 1996. Beginning in 1996, the tenants of the mobile home park began work on purchasing the Park with the ability to subdivide the lots. The Park became an ownership park in 2000 and consists today of 150 homes. The requirement to purchase a home in Aspen Village is a one-year full-time work history within the Roaring Fork Valley. In order to maintain ownership, the owner must continue to work within the Roaring Fork Valley full-time until retirement age as defined in the Aspen/Pitkin County Employee Housing Guidelines.”
