Bottom Line Q & A:

Q: Where are we now? Compare early Aug 2019 to same time last year
A: Aspen SMV sales are now at $822MM vs $728MM last year, +13%,..but not ALL areas are experiencing the same robust sales…It’s a bifurcated market: property sales inside the roundabout are generally exceedingly strong – high demand, low supply, a seller’s market; property sales outside the roundabout are more challenging and competitive – long days on market, price resistant sellers,  a buyer’s market in most of those areas.
Q: What’s happening with Aspen sales?
A: Aspen dollar sales are up +10% over same time last year…And in unit sales, up +9%. Inventory – active properties for sale –  are down -17% over last year…and that’s an issue with buyers, not enough great selections at $MM dollars gets discouraging.
Q: And how about Snowmass Village sales?
A: SMV dollar sales are up 15% and up 26% in unit sales…Snowmass sells many more condos at 1/3 the price of  Aspen condos in general,  so their unit sales numbers are high. 
Q: Where are we headed…?
A: Under contracts are a really good future indicator because typically closings will occur within 30 days after going under contract. So for example, in July 2019 in Aspen, there were (28) UC’s vs last July 18 (17), up a huge +65%…it tells us we’re going to have a very strong end of summer, August, as most of those under contracts  are likely to close. In SMV, the number of UC’s is  +31%, (21) this July vs (16) last July.
Q: How do Aspen and Snowmass Village compare price-wise…What’s the avg. cost of an Aspen condo?

A: In July the avg 2-Bdrm Aspen condo cost $1.76M/$1,750 sq ft for a 900-1,000 sq ft unit.
Q: Of a Snowmass Village condo?

A: SMV 2 bdrm condo was $1M/$730 sq ft, or 58% less than Aspen.
Q: Where are the great values? If you are looking for “deals” and better value – go to Snowmass Village, 8 miles from Aspen,  where generally the discount is 50% or more to Aspen prices vs an historical 25-30%; look at the McLain Flats and Starwood area, Woody Creek and Old Snowmass (see Pg 7 “What Aspen Areas are Selling?”, P9 9 for Snowmass, and see the discounts $/sq ft)
