Aspen Ski Season coming to an end – Best time to BUY real estate!

Post Date: April 12th, 2019

Aspen ski season officially closes on April 21, 2019, Easter Sunday! While many locals are sad to retire their skis for the season and others are excited for the mountain biking season to begin, the Realtors are excited to close out the 2019 ski season with strong numbers and high percentages of increase in the number of homes listed and closed this season, between the 15% – 53% range over last years numbers.

On the side, this may be the BEST time of the year to buy Real Estate in Aspen and Snowmass! Sellers who did not get an offer on their property during the ski season know that they will most likely have to wait for the summer season to kick off the first week in July, before the resort market becomes highly active again. They may also realize that their property was overpriced and are more willing to negotiate their selling price now. If you saw a home that didn't sell this season, this could be the BEST time to make an offer. Also, properties in the resort market are much more available to be shown as they are not occupied all the time. Many properties, particularly condominiums are rented most of the time and are very difficult to access. Between seasons, many of these properties are vacant and so they are much more available to show. Give me a call if you would like to look around the area for that PERFECT SANCTUARY!
