Based on my conversations with colleagues and clients, it seems that the number of sales in Aspen is slowing down. However, prices for both the high and low ends of the market are still strong.
One trend that stands out is the disconnect in the middle of the market. Buyers seem to be reluctant to pay record prices for average locations or dated properties, while sellers are not feeling the need to adjust their prices. As a result, there is little activity in this segment of the market.
Another trend is the shift from speculators who were buying and flipping properties to investors who are parking money for the long run. These investors are only willing to sell if they receive record bids. This trend can be seen as a reflection of the current state of the economy and the uncertain future of the real estate market.
