Unit sales across the board—in Aspen & Snowmass Village—continue to be significantly lower than 2021 and 2020. They are closest to pre-pandemic years, 2019 and 2018, considered by many “more normal, healthy market periods”.
Prices, in general, remain strong, with some incremental softening by neighborhood and price point (see pgs 3,7,9), as inventory of available properties for sale remains at record lows. Demand continues to exceed supply.
Reasons for the slowdown: General economic uncertainty— inflation, recession; high real estate prices and record low inventory of properties for sale; high interest rates likely to increase further; Ukraine war and Russian aggression…We all ask “where are we now, where are we going, what to do? “ Usually, wait and see is what people choose.
However, historically the most costly mistake in the Aspen real estate market is “shoulda, woulda, coulda.” thinking. Not buying. My life-long experience in Aspen is that those who try to time the market will pay more, quite possibly considerably more, down the line.
