Bottom Line 

July ’18 was significantly off from a year ago.

The market is slowing…Prices are very high – is this discouraging buyers? Is low inventory discouraging buyers?  (See Pg 6: July Condo/Townhomes sales are -40% in unit and dollar sales in July; SF Homes sales are down 38%.)

Was this the impact/result of the Lake Christine fire during the month of July? A lot of planes were diverted away from Aspen and did not make it in.

It’s just one month.

However, the Condo/Townhome 3-Mos avg unit sales in the Core were down -39%, (22) in May thru July 18 vs (36) in May thru July 17 (See pg 7 – What areas are selling – 3 month Avg).

There are 2 Aspen real estate markets at present, and since our real recovery confirmed itself in spring 2014:
#1.  Aspen Core, West End and Red Mountain
#2. Everyone else. There are good solid buys, if not Aspen property deals, in market #2.

There are many listings on market #1 at “dreamer” ask prices without real sold comparables. However, of these properties, the next sale of one of these – if there is one – will become the newest comp. It only takes one. 

Clients ask what these will sell for…? We won’t know until there is a sold. And the discount sale price to ask price is an unknown at present.

Unless the market slows dramatically or turns downward.
