"The big takeaway in Aspen was the rapid increase in number of sales, leading to overall higher prices and tighter negotiability," Stephen Kotler, President of Brokerage-Western Region, Douglas Elliman. "The entire Aspen market really moved this quarter. Snowmass Village saw a similar phenomenon, but to a lesser degree than in neighboring Aspen."

"There was a surge in the number of sales across all Aspen property types, overpowering supply," added Jonathan Miller, author of the report. "Single family sales more than tripled and condo sales nearly doubled.  Sales in Snowmass Village continued to rise, average prices edged higher, inventory slipped with the result being faster marketing times and less negotiability for the consumer."
