Like so many chair lifts, property sales in Aspen are ascendant.

A new report from brokerage Douglas Elliman finds a return to form for sales in America’s premier winter playground.

82 condos and single-family homes sold in the third quarter of 2015, representing a 12.3% quarterly increase and the highest number of quarterly sales in seven years.

Prices, however, were more of a mixed bag for the mountain community.

Median sales price jumped 37.2% to $3,429,500 from the prior year quarter. Average sales price followed a similar pattern, rising 18.4% to $4,593,635. Average price per square foot rose 5.8% to $1,379 over the same period. The luxury market, defined as the top 10% of all sales, had a median sales price of $11,880,000, essentially unchanged from the prior year quarter. Condo median sales price surged 26.2% to $1,350,000 and single family median sales price slipped 5.3% to $6,200,000 respectively over the same period.

Days on the market, defined as the number of days from last list price change to contract date, displayed a downward trend, dropping 20.2% from 228 to 182 for the quarter year-over-year.
