Aspen continues to make its mark on the national real estate market, and a new report issued by Coldwell Banker shows that its maintaining its place among the most expensive zip codes in America. Keeping company with New York, Los Angeles and Miami, Aspen consistently ranks on the report’s top markets for listings and closed sales above $5 million and $10 million.
Aspen ranked No. 4 in the country for sales over $10 million from June 2012 to June 2013, with 16 sales, according to the report. New York kept its No. 1 ranking for listings and sales in categories of $1 million, $5 million and $10 million.
“The skiing and outdoor activities are tremendous, but do not set Aspen apart from other Colorado resort towns. Residents choose Aspen for its mix of culture and an open attitude toward learning about the arts and sciences,” says Carrie Wells, an associate broker with Coldwell Banker Mason Morse, in the report.
