What a wild ride 2023 has been for Aspen real estate! While many residential real estate markets around the country have slowed substantially due to the Fed’s historic rate rise, Aspen just “kept on going”. 

In our professional opinion, there are many reasons for Aspen's historic appreciation. Aspen and it's surrounding submarket's many compelling attributes include the following: Prestigious private and public school choices; personal safety; healthy and active lifestyle; multiple cultural organizations including the Aspen Institute, the Aspen Art Museum, Aspen Film, JAS Academy, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and Aspen Food & Wine (just to name a few!) and the many world-class restaurants and shops that line Aspen’s core/downtown area. We believe that these unique features in one small geographic location make Aspen the ultimate investment choice for both primary and secondary home buyers.

Here is the latest research and data on market performance for Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, and Carbondale comparing 2023 to 2020 when prices started to increase with the pandemic. The straight organic appreciation in every residential market throughout the Roaring Fork Valley is unprecedented and has no signs of slowing. We just put two more homes into contract. Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley no longer have an off-season due to all of the highly desirable attributes associated with living here. We look forward to any questions or inquiries you may have.
