It makes me so happy to see the streets of Aspen blooming in their full summer splendor. The colors, sights and smells are invigorating! People are out socializing in our community and exploring the wondrous outdoor lifestyle of the Roaring Fork Valley. Whether it’s a day hiking, biking, paddle boarding or shopping at the Saturday Farmer’s Market, there is always something fun you can do in Aspen.
I especially love seeing the local cafes, stores and bars bustling with activity again. The mood is positive and the weather is beautiful.
Positive Momentum in Aspen Real Estate
It’s no surprise that this positive energy in Aspen is translating to an excellent real estate market. The second quarter of 2021 has outperformed any other Q2 that Aspen/Snowmass has ever experienced. According to the June 2021 Colorado Douglas Elliman Report, new signed contracts in the the Aspen condo market were up 42.9% over June 2020. Single-family sales were down, but that is due to a lack of inventory more than anything. The buyer demand is certainly strong and home prices continue to rise.
Snowmass Village saw significant year-over-year growth in both the single-family and condo markets. New signed contracts were up on Snowmass single-family homes by 166.7%, while condo sales increased by 63.6% compared to last June.
A Fast-Moving Home Market
The days on the market have decreased significantly, properties that are priced well are flying off the “shelves.” As we move through July, we are setting new records
Preparing for Your Move
This market is moving rapidly. Both buyers and sellers need to be prepared before making a move. Aspen buyers learned last year that here is no time like the present to start living life, spending time with the people you love and being in the places you want to be. Aspen is heaven on earth, so it’s easy to understand why everyone wants to be here right now. As a buyer, it pays to be prepared with proof of funds readily available and an agile mindset for this fast-moving market. You have to make aggressive, smart offers with a broker that you trust.
Whether you are looking to buy, sell or rent in the Aspen/Snowmass area this summer, fall or winter, it’s time to start getting ready for your move. Reach out to me with any questions you have and I’ll be happy to discuss your specific real estate needs and goals.
