Mid-Year 2017

Aspen Real Estate


"Aspen real estate
is in turn-a-round

mode from a dismal
2016 when global

uncertainty curtailed
buyers' appetite for
luxury high end

2nd home purchases.

Post-election 2016,
an upper-end

Aspen real estate
recovery is in

full bloom. "



August 2017
Aspen Real Estate

Bottom Line:


Aspen real estate
is cruising along
in overdrive. Aug.
is traditionally a
very active period
for sales, and this
Aug. more so than
ever. Sales at all
prices points are
exceedingly strong
while inventory of
properties for sale
is declining signif-
icantly. Areas with
particular sales
velocity are Downtown
Aspen, Red Mtn and
the West End.
Outlying areas are
experiencing slower
sales at lower prices
- there’s value in them
hills. There's
concern the market
is frothy with
many asking
how long can
this last? 
really knows?

High End Aspen Real Estate Bounces Back Big-Time, AT, Aug 31, 2017

"In his Aug. 11 newsletter, Sothebys real estate broker Tim Estin noted the emphasis on high-dollar sales this year in some of Aspen's most coveted areas for home buyers. He theorized that residences closer to downtown are in more demand because the City Council's overhaul of its land-use code — which took effect in March — banned new residential development in the core. "The Aspen market is bifurcated: there's inside the roundabout and there's outside," Estin wrote. "Aspen's most coveted neighborhoods — Central Core, West End and Red Mountain — are experiencing robust sales at record prices. But it's a different world outside the roundabout. There is a significant discrepancy in what buyers are willing to pay inside versus outside. It's hard, if not impossible, to recall in the past 40 to 50 years such a significant separation, or divergence, because there has always been an Aspen buyer who sought being 'further out' of Aspen's downtown. The point of coming to Aspen used to be to get away from it all. Not anymore."
