• Think your rent is high? Try leasing the home at 150 White Horse Springs Lane in Pitkin County, which is commanding $150,000 a month. That’s according to the website RENTCafe, which recently compiled a list showing the priciest rental homes in every state. The five-bedroom, six-bath home was the third-most expensive in the U.S., according to RENTCafe, which ranked a Miami Beach estate charging $300,000 a month as the costliest. Property records tie the White Horse property to the ownership of the Melvin Knyper Revocable Trust.
• New York-based Compass, a technology-driven luxury real estate company that acquired Shane Aspen Real Estate in March, has hired local brokers Doug Leibinger and Heidi Houston. Leibinger, once the No. 6 ranked broker at Sotheby’s, accounted for more than $88 million in closed sales in 2015, according to a company statement. Houston is the former president and owner of boutique brokerage Aspen Sales & Rentals.
