Executive Summary 

The Aspen real estate market is firing on all cylinders at full speed ahead.

By all measures – property dollar sales, property unit sales, real estate transfer tax collections, and construction activity – we are in the midst of a thriving and vibrant real estate market.

We are seeing expanded Aspen sales activity outwards from downtown Aspen to Starwood, Woody Creek and Old Snowmass as buyers recognize the significant values 5-15 minutes outside compared to record prices within the Aspen Core.

Snowmass Village sales have been fairly even for the past 3-4 years but hopes are high for a substantive bounce as the Base Village experiences new construction momentum and gets closer to completion. This is a result of the ownership change in Dec 2017 from an indifferent Related Co’s to a highly charged and enthusiastic local East West Partners/Aspen Skiing Co partnership.
