ASPEN REAL ESTATE – After January and February’s dismal real estate activity, the local market seemed to switch into higher gear in March, with more activity and more higher-end sales than the valley has seen in months. And with the end of the first quarter of 2010, real estate brokers are optimistic, though cautiously so, since three months of activity doesn’t necessarily establish a long-term trend.
“In general it’s positive but it’s very tiny positive,” said Tim Estin, a broker at Mason and Morse who also authors the Estin Report, a frequent analysis of real estate sales and activity.
