The info in this weekly blog, with the exception of my opinions, is generally available to the public from a number of sources but disseminated here at a single location. It’s my intention to report the significant week’s activity but not everything. Quality and accuracy over quantity and hype. For specific buying and selling decisions, and/or market information relevant to your needs, please email or call me directly.
The Aspen/Glenwood Springs MLS system changed last week to a system called “flexmls”, and most brokers, including myself, are fumbling through the new system trying to figure it out. It looks robust and full of great features, but it will take time to learn all its tricks and many client benefits. The links below for this week’s market activity work, but they may take a few minutes to open for some reason, and I’m trying to solve the problem.The links expire in 2-3 weeks.

There was a marked increase in activity last week with (3) closings and (4) properties put under contract. Already this past weekend, the start of President’s Week, there is a considerable uptick in buyer interest and showings. The summary of last week’s activity is below with links to more info, maps and photos.
