• While it has been widely publicized that Pitkin County real estate sales this year will fall well short of the $2 billion in total transactions from last year, numbers from August showed signs of life.
That’s according to a recent newsletter from broker James Benvenuto, who reported August registered 39 property sales, compared with 27 in August 2015. Benvenuto also pointed out that sales of single-family homes are actually outpacing last year’s numbers in Snowmass Village. From January through August, Snowmass saw $111.6 million in home sales, up from $74 million for the same period in 2015.
