Roaring Fork Valley Real Estate Market Update - First Quarter 2018

With the US economy flourishing despite its roller-coaster stock market, the Aspen real estate market continues to flourish. The fourth quarter Aspen dollar volume of last year showed a 29% increase over the same period for the prior year. This was followed by a 33% increase for the first quarter of 2018 versus the same period for 2017. Snowmass Village did not fare quite so well. The same comparative periods went from a 65% increase to a 19% decrease. This was caused by a major decrease in the average price of a sale from $1.59M in Q1 of 2017 to $880K in Q1 of 2018. Both Basalt and Carbondale showed major increases in their first quarter closed transactions for 2018 versus 2017 results by 76% and 36% respectively.
