Released June 30, 2020 v3.0

Last week was another huge week of sales activity for Aspen and Snowmass real estate as the local opening up from Covid-19 restrictions has unleashed a wave of pent-up demand… (17) properties went under contract last week and the 3-week June total of these pending sales is (52) properties at a total ask price value of $247MM. This includes a brand new home on Placer Ln on Red Mountain at $33.5M/$3,345 sq ft ask,?(4) priced between $11M-$25M ask and (11) at prices over $2,000 sq ft ask.? In a clear departure? from the Aspen-centric sales pattern that has dominated our local sales of the past few years, in June, properties have gone under contract throughout the entire upper Roaring Fork Valley. There were ?(27) in Aspen, (17) in Snowmass village, (3) in Woody Creek (3) and (5) in Old Snowmass. Buyers say they’re are looking for acreage and space…a clear indication that the geographic rings of interest have finally expanded outwards beyond Aspen.

Why…what’s happening? Call it the Great Urban Exodus – people fed-up with big city living. The impetus may well be historic low interest rates – money is dirt cheap, then add Covid-19 and violence in the streets and buyers are saying, “Enough, I’m done thinking about moving to Aspen, we’re doing it, going.” People have learned they can work from anywhere, clients understand it. There’s a new-found comfort level that business can be done from anywhere.

Buyers want to move here for longer durations or full-time, get their kids into the schools and they appear willing to pay up although there have been discounts at 10-30% off ask of big ticket properties over $15M.? At Aspen Country Day School, anecdotally, there are 40-50 new applications? and consequently the school is? increasing enrollment;? Maroon Creek Club memberships…13 new applicants for just 5 membership slots and tennis memberships are oversold.
