Where do the Buyers of Aspen Real Estate come from? A statistical breakdown of Aspen's county, Pitkin, shows local and domestic sales represent over 98% of the number of real estate sales. International Buyers represent 2% of sales per this reconciliation. It is acknowledged that some international ownership takes place thru LLC entities that have domestic addresses and therefore may not be refelcted in these tabulations. However it is interesting to note, that the largest majority of Buyers by far are those who already own property here.

 At Aspen Core Realty we direct our energies toward bringing our listed properties to the attention of the most likely buyers. That means focusing on our web presence and advertising to achieve that end. The typical buyer comes to Aspen to review all properties listed by multiple agencies that might fit their needs. Although the internet has added a new opportunity to the marketing mix, the decision and buying process still follows a fairly predictable pattern. How a property is priced and how it is presented to the brokerage community and the perspective buyers through advertisements and the showing is the cornerstone upon which the success of our brokerage is built. We are a results oriented company, rather than market share driven. Serving our clients’ interests is our first and foremost priority.  We give you the information you need to make informed decisions.
Please contact us at Aspen Core Realty to discuss your Aspen Real Estate needs.
