It is hard to believe that this small town just 13 miles from Aspen is becoming the New Aspen. Basalt has always been in the shadow of its famous neighbors, Aspen and Snowmass. Things have really changed for this almost forgotten town.
In 2006, Basalt’s average home price topped over $1 million for the first time in its history. The billionaires are pushing the millionaires out of Aspen and Snowmass to Basalt. Basalt has a lot of attractions at a fraction of Aspen prices.
Living on the gold medal winning trout river, the Frying Pan River is highly sought with multi-million dollar homes. Commercial restaurants and boutiques are popping up all over town. Ruedi Reservoir is the closest place to boat and sail around Aspen and Snowmass.
A newspaper article appeared in The New York Post in 2005 and set the Basalt real estate market ablaze. The article discussed on how Basalt was often overlooked by its famous neighbors, Aspen and Snowmass. It mentioned how this town had finally blossomed into a town of it own right and no longer was in the shadows.
Basalt was summed up in the article as the next boomtown. After the article, people were calling Aspen and Snowmass real estate agents and buying property without seeing it. Most Basalt real estate at the time was selling for 100% of list price. However, today Basalt has felt the downturn as much as any other place has and there are deals to be had like I have neverseen before.
I, Roget Kuhn, an Aspen and Snowmass real-estate agent has seen Aspen now become the New Aspen.
