In July 2015, the same company, which is based in Brazil, bought a home at 511 Edgewood Lane for $12 million.

• In his latest newsletter issued Friday, broker Chris Klug noted that in Aspen alone, 13 single-family homes sold through May 25, compared with 35 through the same period last year. The average single-family-home sale this year is $6 million, compared with $6.8 million last year. The condo market has seen 43 sales in Aspen through May 25, compared with 70 last year through the same date. Condo prices are averaging $2.1 million this year, roughly the same as last year.
