September is one of my favorite months of the year. The colors in the weeks ahead should start to turn and make for a spectacular show. The trails and peaks are uncrowded and you can easily get a table at your favorite restaurant. It's starting to get cold in the morning; I'm not sure I'm yet ready for it. Hopefully we will have a prolonged "Indian Summer." Moab is just three hours away if not. I'm looking forward to sneaking in a few weekend Moab trips this fall. Always great ways to recreate in Aspen or close by. Where are the deals? I think with the busy summer wrapping up and off-season approaching the timing is good if you're interested in buying in the Roaring Fork Valley. Some sellers will start to get anxious with less people in town and less showing activity. Interest rates continue to be at historic lows and there are certainly plenty of options for buyers with increased inventory available. I've toured nearly all of the up valley listings this summer and am up to date on what's available. I know where the deals are! That being said there are deals being done and properties selling, more so in Aspen than Down Valley. The West End of Aspen has seen a number of recent closings. Let me know if I can help you find the right home for you in the Roaring Fork Valley or assist in selling your property. Thanks for keeping me in mind when real estate becomes a priority in your life. Enjoy the off-season. Call with any questions about real estate or favorite fall hikes or rides. If you're not currently local, come back and see us soon.
