Last Week’s Market Highlights - Aspen Snowmass real estate weekly sales statistics and under contract activity appears below for all Aspen, Snowmass Village, Woody Creek and Old Snowmass properties over $250,000 in the upper Roaring Fork Valley excluding fractionals.

For past sales, scroll to page bottom and search by time period.
On Sat. March 17th, the Fox Crossing auction was held. A condo listed near $4.1M and three $2M lots were auctioned. The condo is apparently under contract as is one of the lots. See below for more info on the auction, and call me if you’d like more specific information. These two properties are scheduled to close in 30 days.
