HAPPY NEW YEAR!

What a perfect Aspen welcome to 2020 with new snow and great skiing. It looks like retail, restaurants and bars d

id a knockout business which should bring huge smiles at every level! Don't miss out on this amazing ski season! 

Call me to book your winter vacation. 

We have ALL price levels and are here to help you!! 

SO LET'S TALK REAL ESTATE!

The highest prices per square foot are consistently in the walk-ability blocks for the perfect product now and we are seeing closed numbers around $3,000 a sq. ft. For a similar product “out of town " a recently built state of the art mountain contemporary 10,600 sq ft home on 36 acres closed at about $1300 per sq ft. And is a 20-30 minute drive. 


And, for the first time in a while, I am seeing price reductions now instead of the end of ski season. Sellers are pricing their product at possibly the last highest sale even though theirs may not be updated or even staged. And, several Sellers with great looking new product in the downtown core are listed at more than $5,000 per square foot. Many of these now show days on market at well over a year. 


This is a real lesson for all of us - If you really want to sell in a reasonable period of time, let us stage - even using the Compass Concierge Program (basically Compass pays and gets paid back at closing with no interest expense to you). And, besides the staging, let me help you price it realistically by showing you SOLD comps. For BUYERS-we have some real opportunities now-you tell me the neighborhoods you prefer, and I show you product that needs updating, and then we start writing offers. Below, you will see my analysis of price ranges 2019-vs 2018.

MY FORECAST FOR THE WINTER SEASON

 If the stock market stays strong (it went up over

 40% since the last presidential election) Then our real estate market will continue to b

e very strong. I also think buyers are very smart - no one is embarrassed to make offers o

n the very overpriced product that has been on the market a year or more. We will see a

ction. 


Aspen Real Estate is a real investment.

with selling, buying and renting!
