For the month, Aspen single family home unit sales are off 60% over Sep 2018, (6) sales now vs (15) then, and sales for 2019 YTD are down 21%, (51) vs (72) last year. Aspen single family dollar sales are off similarly for Sept 19, but up 3% year to date.

Aspen condo unit sales, much in demand with a  very low inventory of active listings, were up 31% in Sept 19, (17) now vs (13) in Sept 18; Sept 19 dollar sales are up 15% YOY but down 10% for 2019 YTD – possibly due to more smaller size units selling .

Snowmass Village metrics are similar to Aspen’s except that SMV is selling at approximately 50% discount to Aspen just 8 miles away.
