As we welcome the Spring season, it is time to review what happened in the real estate market for the first quarter of 2020.
Aspen Real Estate News & Sales Data
In the first quarter of 2020, we saw the highest total sales volume in Aspen since 2007 and we had eight sales over $10 million. This includes two downtown Aspen penthouses that sold for $3,978/sf and $5,043/sf. The effects of COVID-19 on the real estate market have some similarity to the erratic behavior of the financial markets. People are rebalancing portfolios—some with a strategy and some with emotion. We know the general trend, but it’s not an exact science and there are outliers. In March, there were ten properties that fell out of contract and returned to the market for sale, and twenty-seven listings that were either cancelled or withdrawn from the MLS. These numbers are about double what we see in a “normal” month.
Key Q1 2020 Aspen real estate sales figures:
- 8 sales over $10 million
- $266 million total sales volume (the highest since 2007 for Q1)
- 11 single-family homes sold, 10 sales are pending, 133 are on the market
