The second quarter of this year showed a major increase in Aspen real estate sales in both dollar volume and transaction volumes over the same quarter last year. Dollar volume was up 181% and transaction volumes were up 142%. Aspen sales volumes peaked in the third and fourth quarters of 2015 (see spreadsheet below) and dropped off the edge of a cliff at the beginning of 2016. This past quarter showed the Aspen market is back in full force. It seems as though the big money had little confidence in the economy and the stock market going into the 2016 presidential election and their confidence has shown a resurgence since the election.

Both Aspen and Carbondale showed significant increases in average transaction dollars (Aspen up  16% and Carbondale up 15%) while Snowmass Village and Basalt showed significant decreases (Snowmass Village down 21% and Basalt down 14%).
