The Estin Report publishes a monthly Aspen real estate market “Snapshot” on or near the 1st Monday of each month.  The Monthly Snapshot details residential real estate sales in Aspen’s upper Roaring Fork Valley with three sections: 1) Total combined Aspen Snowmass Village Market; 2) The Aspen Market; 3) The Snowmass Village Market.  It compares the subject month to the same time in prior years with charts, tables and 30-day live links to sold properties’ photos and details. The Monthly Snapshot is the only Aspen and Snowmass property sales information widely published in a timely and consistent manner early each month. My apology… this one is late!
