April 2024 was a landmark month for the Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley real estate market, showing significant growth and record-breaking sales. Here's a detailed overview of the latest trends and data from our vibrant community.

Aspen Market Highlights

Single Family Homes

Aspen's single-family home market experienced a remarkable surge in sold volumes compared to April 2023. The average sold price year-to-date (YTD) for single-family homes skyrocketed to $24.3 million. This increase is attributed to three extraordinary sales in April, each over $50 million, including the highest sale in Aspen's history at $108 million on Lower Red Mountain. The average sold price per square foot (PPSF) for Aspen single-family homes also saw a notable increase of 26%, reaching $3,558.

Condos

The condo market in Aspen mirrored the single-family home market's upward trajectory with a 74% increase in sold volume. While pricing remained relatively flat compared to the first four months of 2023, the surge in volume indicates strong demand and a healthy market.

Snowmass Village Market Highlights

Single Family Homes

Snowmass Village experienced modest increases in single-family home volumes. However, transaction numbers were down, primarily due to fewer early purchase closings (EPL) this spring. Despite the decrease in transactions, prices for single-family homes in Snowmass Village increased, reflecting sustained interest and value in the area.

High-End Market

The high-end market continues to drive overall performance. In 2024, there have been 29 sales over $10 million, a 26% increase from the 23 sales during the same period last year. The ultra-high-end segment saw an even more dramatic rise, with 10 sales over $20 million compared to 7 last year, marking a 43% increase.

Inventory Trends

Inventory trends showed mixed results between Aspen and Snowmass Village. Aspen saw a 23% increase in the inventory of all whole ownership free market property types compared to last year. Conversely, Snowmass Village experienced a 21% decrease in inventory. Overall, from Aspen to Old Snowmass, inventory increased by 14.5%, though it remains 47% below the levels seen in April 2020.

Pending Sales

Pending sales figures also suggest a robust market ahead. At the end of April 2024, Aspen had 26 properties pending sale totaling $267 million, a significant rise from 14 pending sales totaling $143 million at the same time last year. Snowmass Village also showed strength with 77 properties pending sale at the end of April 2024, totaling $420 million compared to 65 properties totaling $240 million last year.

Looking Ahead

The strong pending sales figures indicate a promising Q2 and Q3 for the Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley markets. Notably, significant sales are anticipated with the upcoming closings of properties in Aura and Cirque next year, expected to further drive market growth.
