The US Forest is making plans to sell five Aspen West End lots by auction sometime this summer. Originally they planned to put them up for auction this winter during the high ski season, but plans have been delayed. Recent sales of similar lots in the West End have sold for approximateley $2-2.5M and other than these offerings, there are few to no vacant lot listings in the West End. According to a recent USFS press release, “Each lot could be sold separately or all five could be purchased by one owner.” The size of the parcel is aprroximately one acre. If the lots were sold to one buyer versus multiple buyers, it is possible they would be discounted significantly.
