Aspen Real Estate Market Report - Summer 2013 vs. 2014

Overall the Aspen real estate market is up over summer 2013 and continuing at a steady pace. It is appreciating in all sectors of the greater Aspen area discussed in this report - the Downtown Core by 10%, the West End by nearly 30% and Red Mountain by almost 50%. This signifies a good market for sellers, as prices trend towards pre-recession values. In addition, inventory scarcity in the coveted West End has created a dynamic where buyers are more willing to pay a higher premium for these properties. With the busy winter season approaching, and the current market condition, it is a prime time to list your Aspen home with Stirling Peak Properties.

Please contact us to discuss listing your property or if you have any questions.
