Stat 3

Snowmass Village sellers have taken a very aggressive approach to selling over recent months.  Since the beginning of 2016, several luxury sales have occurred and the buyers have reaped the benefits of motivated sellers.  

Unless you ask, the answer is always no.  Kudos to those buyers for getting in there and asking, and landing a great deal!
