Cash this reality check

Dear Editor:

I read with interest the “Biz Buzz” item regarding rents in mountain towns and counties (Inside Business, Aug. 28). “Average rent in Aspen is $1,187 per month.” Average implies that there are lower and higher rents. Higher, I understand, having lived 57 years in the Roaring Fork Valley, however, I have tried for seven years to find ANYTHING in the upper valley for that price (or close to it).

Your figures sound like elitist real estate broker propaganda to me. How about a reality check on rents in the upper valley?
