After a slow first half of 2016 our town is full and buyers are looking. There's no better place to be this time of the year than Aspen Snowmass. Real estate activity really increased in July; I put almost fifteen million under contract the past weeks. There were a number of macro economic factors that sidelined buyers through the first two quarters of 2016 including: the strength of the Dollar, fluctuating equities markets, the price of oil, and an election year. On the heels of a great 2015, buyers were on edge; you could find reasons not to purchase a new home the first half of 2016. I had a great conversation Tuesday morning with my co-workers. We discussed why now is a great time to purchase a home in Aspen Snowmass. Here are the Top Ten Reasons it makes sense today:
