Park City Housing Market Update – May 2022 

Do you hear that? It’s the winds of change. Is it simply a change in the weather as Park City begins to fully embrace springtime temperatures and mountains shifting from white to green, or is there a real estate market shift taking place?

With the value of Bitcoin being cut in half in the last six months, and the stock market reeling, all while interest rates tick up, talk of the economy and the housing market seems to be the most popular topic at the trail head. So how is the market? What should buyers expect in the marketplace? How should sellers look for a great agent? How should properties be priced right now?

As much as everyone wants to know our opinion on what may or may not happen in the future, we are not fortune tellers, and do not predict the future. Our business has been built on observing and interpreting the facts and measurable metrics of the Park City real estate market, not speculating on things that are outside of our control. We dive into an assortment of common questions and observations along with some fast stats in this months market update.

What We Are Seeing in the Marketplace

  • New listings and active inventory have increased in the Wasatch Back over the last 2 months, just as they have historically in the months of April through June
  • Active inventory for all property types (single family, condo, land) on the Park City MLS in April 2022 was 700 properties, well below the average of 2,041 properties for April between 2013-2019, and 809 in April of 2021
  • Between 2013-2019, inventory has typically been the highest for the given year in June, July, or August, so it’s certainly possible to see a continued increase in inventory over the next few months
  • This year is Park City’s first “real” spring or fall shoulder season since 2019. Many seem to have forgotten that the natural rhythm of our ski town leaves it feeling sleepy and with few visitors – and consequently less home shoppers – from mid-April through late May
  • The average days on market for residential property (condo, townhome, single family) in Park City and the Snyderville Basin held steady at 7 DOM for April; flat from 7 days in March
  • The percent of list price received for residential property in Park City and the Snyderville Basin for April was 101.1%, down from 101.9% in March, but on average properties are still selling above their list price
  • The market remains segmented, with sought-after properties still selling quickly, and at times before being publicly listed, like our most recent listings in Canyon Creek and Blackhawk Station
  • Compared to historical interest rates, current mortgage rates are still quite reasonable, however they feel high do to the speed of the increase and having such historically low rates the last 2 years

Advice and Observations for Buyers

  • Make an Offer
    • Not every property is flying off the shelves instantaneously. If a property checks 80% of a buyers criteria, but they feel the price is too high and there aren’t competing offers, we would encourage them to make an offer even if it’s not at asking price, and then negotiate
  • Don’t Expect a Deal
    • Based on the inventory and days on market data above, this is still very much a sellers market at this time, and we would not advise any buyers to go in expecting a substantial discount
  • Real Estate is a Good Investment and Hedge Against Inflation
    • Real estate has historically been used by investors as a hedge against inflation, and an alternative to the stock market. With inflation forecasted to continue and stocks underperforming, we are seeing some clients diversifying their portfolio into more real estate
  • Utah Still Has a Strong Outlook
    • Park City and Northern Utah still remain a great place to live and work, with strong forecasts for job and population growth, low property and corporate tax rates, and a favorable lifestyle

Advice and Observations for Sellers

  • Don’t Be a Victim to FOMO
    • We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but May’s Park City real estate market numbers will be very interesting to observe, and as rates are having an impact on some buyers, sellers who have a Fear of Missing Out on the recent record sales prices may be in danger of overpricing their property and then having to backpedal and reduce their price in order to sell
  • Good Properties Priced Right Still Selling Fast
    • Taking into account the the tangible and intangible aspects of each property before deciding on a final list price has never been more important. Are you building the list price based on market data and demand, or are you trying to justify the sales price based on active listings and having room to negotiate? We would advise the former strategy
  • Work with the Right Agent
    • We are seeing some agents listing homes at exorbitant prices in order to get the listing. We would advise extreme caution with this strategy. Agents that do a higher number of transactions and sell properties specific to your neighborhood, size, and price point will have the best feel for the current market dynamics that affect your home. Hire based on expertise and proven systems even if you don’t love their advised list price, and the market will give you what the property is worth.
  • Pricing is an Art
    • Now more than ever, forming a relationship with a real estate advisor you can trust with a proven track record is paramount. Experience and expertise is what will set the best agents apart who can price your property accurately and confidently, and be honest upfront in the process to set expectations

Choose Park City Real Estate Sales for March and April 2022

  • We put 7 properties under contract for our clients for a total of nearly $9,345,000 in pending sales
  • 8 transactions closed for just over $12,900,000 in sales volume
  • Of our buyers competing against multiple offers, 100% of them had their offers accepted
  • 2 buyers went under contract on properties not publicly listed on the MLS
  • We referred our clients to top performing agents in other markets resulting in 1 successful purchase and 4 other properties under contract

Thanks for reading this months market update, and as always, reach out to us if you have questions on how these numbers will affect you and your situation. Whether you are a possible Park Meadows home buyer, potential Deer Valley home seller, or an interested property investor, we can put the stats and our Park City housing market knowledge to work for you no matter what your needs and interests are. Everyone’s situations are different, so knowing how to apply the data is integral to making wise real estate decisions.

Park City’s Running With Ed 2022

It’s May and we hope you know what that means… our favorite event is on the horizon and the stoke factor is high. Park City’s most popular fundraiser & sporting event for the past eight years, “Running With Ed,”  is scheduled for May 21 (rain or shine or snow!) from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and promises to be another day full of fun and frolic benefitting special programs within our schools. Now in its 13th year, our goal is to raise $320,000 which is a moderate 6.3% increase over last year’s record breaking tally of $300,000. Park City, we can do this!!!

The Grenney clan/Team Average Joe’s in 2021

Little known fact: 96% of our Summit County tax dollars leave our school district. PCEF funds eight key initiatives which are Preschool, EVA Elementary Visual Art program, after school, STEM, PCCAPS (Park City Center for Advanced Professional Studies), Bright Futures, The Educator Innovation Lab, and Classroom/Express Grants. The Classroom Grants program covers at least 30 different educator ideas every year. As an example, two long-term Classroom Grants programs are PCHS Robotics and Debate.

Last year all Debate competitions were done online, and Robotics was in person, which was super tricky given all the COVID restrictions, yet both programs flourished. The top PCHS Robotics team won Worlds with a record-breaking score, and Debate sent six students to Nationals last summer. Five of those students received Academic All-America awards. For PCHS Debate, this was unprecedented and extremely rare for a public high school. I’m encouraging my two daughters to pursue the STEM track in school, focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math so these huge results warm my heart.

Mad Scientists teachers honored funding for STEM programs. STEM is the nationwide acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math programs.

While we all know Park City residents are arguably the worst when it comes to RSVP’s (any dinner party host would agree) as well as early registrations,  we’re very optimistic that as of this week, we have nearly 1,000 registrants of our total expected participants size of 1,200. Please consider creating a team and registering before the race on May 21st. Register and learn more deets here.  

The Basin Fieldhouse is headquarters again for this celebratory relay race.  The event is structured to appeal to runners and non-runners alike, with varying relay lengths and associated degree of challenge. It’s one of two of Park City Education Foundation’s fundraisers of the year and thanks to the generous support of the event’s sponsors, your donation dollars are stretched even further. Huge thanks to both Intermountain Healthcare and Park City Mountain Resort for their significant 2022 sponsorships as well as all the other local supporters. I even jumped into the sponsorship mix!  

RWE is not about the speed of the race but rather a fun, full day of fundraising embracing the importance our community places on education, with open arms for participants of all skill levels. I love that my whole family can participate, and whether you choose siblings, neighbors, co-workers or hobby groups, you’re encouraged to form a team, have some fun, and support our kids, teachers and schools.

As the co-chair again this year for the 4th year running (no pun intended), I am always so amazed to see this generous community come out in droves to support education. The creativity of costumes floors me every year. Whether it’s stripes and tutus, a play on words, or running robots, PC knows how to get it done in style. And who doesn’t get a kick out of the silliness of the fans lining the course who are sometimes known to break out the silly string or water guns to cheer on the participants?  

Community collaboration and contributions is what it’s all about.

The 26.4-mile relay course offers everything from trail to gravel to pavement, challenging climbs to fast downhills, easy legs for beginners and tough ones for experts. Winding past Olympic venues, iconic landmarks, and neighborhood schools, this is Park City’s best! Here’s this year’s relay breakdown with our notations:

Leg 1 – 3.0 Miles – Basin Recreation Field house to Jeremy Ranch Elementary (flat & easy)

Leg 2 – 1.6 Miles – Jeremy Ranch Elementary to Ecker Hill Middle School (perfect for skippers and walkers, easy peasy)

Leg 3 – 3.5 Miles – Ecker Hill Middle School to the Base of the Utah Olympic Park Ski Jumps (a bit more challenging)

Leg 4 – 5.7 Miles – Base of the UOP Ski Jumps to Parley’s Park Elementary School (the MONSTER leg, which includes running UP the ski jump steps! Save this one for your most serious, hard-core athlete team member)

Leg 5 – 4.5 Miles – Parley’s Park Elementary School to McPolin Elementary School (perfect for your endurance participant)

Leg 6 – 1.3 Miles – McPolin Elementary School to Treasure Mountain Jr High School (nice & flat & easy)

Leg 7 – 4.4 Miles – Treasure Mountain Jr High School to Trailside Elementary School (an endurance leg with some trail running)

Leg 8 – 2.4 Miles – Trailside Elementary School to Basin Recreation Fieldhouse – (The most scenic leg, capturing that BIG VIEW!)

Top fundraisers will be rewarded with tickets, swag, and unique Park City gifts, all donated in support of this great cause.

Hope to see you and your costumed-clad team out on the course this year!

Jordanelle Area Real Estate Developments – March 2022

Jordanelle Reservoir and the Mayflower side of Deer Valley Resort with a fresh coat of snow

Located just 10 minutes from Park City’s east entry on Highway 248, the Jordanelle area is a hotspot for new development; the entire area was master planned when the Jordanelle Reservoir was created in the 1990’s. This overview focuses on new developments where there is still “developer inventory” as several are under construction with pre-sold inventory.

While it might be simple to lump all the communities sprouting up around the Jordanelle Reservoir together, there are unique nuances we’ll explore to help you find the ideal spot. Ask yourself which is more important – the “Big View” that encompasses the lake and the slopes of Deer Valley® Resort, or is proximity to the water’s edge more appealing? Worthy of note is that because the shoreline is all part of Federal BLM lands, there are no actual “waterfront” properties, though some come closer than others.

Parents with young kiddos need to know one critical fact, which is that the Jordanelle area is outside the coveted Park City School District, and while the majority of kids residing in this area are bussed to Heber, there are a few communities lying within the South Summit school district in Kamas. While it’s possible to get the kids into the highly ranked Park City School District when waivers are available, you certainly can’t consistently rely on this option. So, my recommendation is to consider the private or charter school options that are available, several of which might be a good fit. Ask us for more details on these options.

If your interest is more investment focused, you’ll want to consider which communities allow nightly rentals to expand your revenue potential. Where new construction homes or townhomes are offered, you should plan on a build cycle of 12 – 18 months as supply chain issues have extended build times. Further, numerous builder contracts include provisions for materials cost increases, so be mindful of that verbiage. We will guide you through this process.

An overview of the varied and ever-growing variety of new developments surrounding the Jordanelle Reservoir

The Big View is offered from most of the properties on the north, east and south sides of the lake, while Deer Valley and freeway access are the key reasons to select properties along the western shore of Jordanelle.

The Big View

Black Rock Mountain Resort

Opening just in time for the 21/22 ski season, Black Rock Mountain Resort has also emerged as a much-needed gathering spot for the previously “entertainment starved” Jordanelle area, offering the quite tasty Overlook Restaurant and On the Rocks bar, with live entertainment on weekends. There’s also The Market offering Hugo’s Coffee, bagels, and muffins as well as fruit and snacks.

Options within Black Rock Mountain Resort include two bedroom stacked flats, some with lockouts, with a few three bedroom offerings, and all can be rented nightly with incentives to use the onsite property management group. Current pricing for the limited 2 bed/2 bath developer inventory ranges from $849,900 – $1,600,000.

Consider the perks of membership at Club Black Rock which offers several levels, including access to the outdoor pool, hot tub, and fire tables, as well as a weight room, steam room, sauna, members lounge and business center. There’s also a membership option that includes area Shuttle Service, so keep this Club membership option in mind if your chosen Jordanelle property does not offer amenities.

Town of Hideout

Hideout is a township of 2,500 acres along the north end of Jordanelle, on the “water side” of Hwy. 248. In addition to terrific views of the water, the primary amenity is their 9-hole executive golf course called “Outlaw.”  All the communities listed below are part of Hideout.

Homesites

Golden Eagle

This new 328 lot subdivision within the town of Hideout is perched high on the north side of the Jordanelle, offering commanding vistas across the Jordanelle Reservoir. Most of the homesites are at least ½ acre with varying slopes, allowing you to position your future home to maximize views. Current pricing ranges from $410,000 – $756,000 with allowable home sizing ranging from 3,200 to 7,000 sq. feet. Future amenities include a small clubhouse/gathering space with indoor and outdoor areas and 4 miles of hiking trails. About a third of the sites have sold, and road paving will resume late this spring or early summer, weather dependent.

Deer Vista

Deer Vista is a gated 103 lot subdivision of estate homesites on the north end of Jordanelle. Their strategy shifted last spring after the pandemic market surge, and all remaining homesites were shifted into the developer’s current homebuilding program. We anticipate seeing inventory listed this spring in the $3M – $4.5M range for homes ranging in size from 5,300 – 7,000 sq. ft.

Hideout Condominiums & Townhomes

Shoreline

Shoreline is a very successful community of high-quality townhomes on the northeast section of Hideout.  There is a new phase of contemporary 4- and 5-bedroom twin homes being released this spring which are now under construction, with 15 offered in this next release.  These larger townhomes will offer 4 & 5 bedroom options.  While pricing has not been finalized, it is anticipated they will start around the $2M mark. Their final phase will consist of somewhere between 42 and 49 twin homes.

Wasatch Springs

Wasatch Springs is Holmes Homes’ first foray into the Jordanelle area and was enormously successful. This community is located just south of the traffic light at Brown’s Canyon. Though now sold out and recently completed, resales pop up with some regularity. A variety of floor plans are offered with most being 4 bedrooms, and some 3 bedrooms. Sizing ranges from 1,880 to just under 3,000 sf, with recent pricing from the mid $800,000’s to just over $1M. Nightly rentals are allowed, which helped drive this community’s enormous popularity.

Deer Springs

Deer Springs at Hideout is a new community offered by Holmes Homes, who recently completed the successful Wasatch Springs community. The current phase under construction offers 15 single family homes and 30 duplexes. While subject to change due to market demand, the future phases could include 46 single family homes and 138 duplexes. This community straddles the Jordanelle trail system and will offer a playground, dog park and paved biking/walking trail. The community is within walking distance to the Ross Creek ramp at Jordanelle, offering easy non-motorized boating access for paddle boarding or kayaking. The next phase should be released this spring, let us know if you want to be alerted when available.

Deer Waters at Hideout

Another Holmes Homes community, Deer Waters offers mountain contemporary duplex townhomes which allow for extensive customization through their in-house designer. Three different plans are offered with 3 -4 bedrooms, 3 – 4 baths and two car garages. Current inventory is priced from $1,500,000 to over $1,900,000.   

Klaim

The Klaim community of mountain-modern three bedroom. three bath townhomes are on the uphill side of Hwy 224 with lake views. Their final phase IV will be released this spring, with building clusters of three and four townhomes, with the uphill plans backing up to 40 acres of open space. Interest in the next phase is quite strong, so if this property peaks your interest, let’s get you registered so you’ll be in the queue for the next release. Pricing has not been released but we anticipate pricing in the range of $1.4M+.

Private Clubs

Tuhaye

Tuhaye is a high-end, private golf community on the northern slopes of Jordanelle being developed by Storied Development, which acquired the existing Tuhaye assets in 2018. We’ve been quite impressed with their accomplishments in just four years. Storied Development is a very well capitalized and seasoned club community developer with successful communities throughout the continental U.S, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and Mexico.

Tuhaye is part of the broader Talisker Club, which includes the slopeside Talisker Club at Empire Pass at Deer Valley® Resort, the Outpost at Bonanza Flat beyond Deer Valley and access to the Courchevel Bistro on Main St. Park City. Within Tuhaye, the centerpiece is the Mark O’Meara designed Signature Championship golf course which is consistently ranked among the best in Utah – it’s challenging! Currently there is no developer inventory listed for either homesites or homes, but with the advent of spring we anticipate seeing some new inventory. The Golf Club membership is included with all developer lot purchases and when offered with home sale purchases is priced at $125,000. Tip – in today’s market we advise you to strongly consider acquiring the membership whether it’s your preference or not as they are in extremely high demand. Contact us for more of the backstory.

Victory Ranch

Victory Ranch a private, four-season community amidst 6,700 pristine acres along four miles of the coveted Upper Provo River in Francis, on the quieter, south end of Jordanelle. Amenities include an 18-hole Rees Jones golf course, world-class fly-fishing, miles of mountain biking and hiking trails, backcountry yurts, fishing ponds, restaurants, a ski-in/ski-out lodge in Park City at the Town Lift on Main St. and more than 4,000 acres of untouched backcountry. Additional amenities include their kid-oriented Barn, with a Pizza Parlor, Art Studio, Game Room, Indoor Basketball Court as well as a Fitness Center, Spa, and Platform Tennis Courts. Outdoors there’s a swimming pool, waterslide, and tennis courts. Owners enjoy a plethora of backcountry opportunities, from skeet shooting to yurt camping to snowmobiling and 4 X 4 tours. The development is nearing build out, with just one developer owned 7+ acre homesite currently available priced at $1.795M. At present, there are just a handful of resale single family homes available, priced from $5.65M to $7M+. 

The new Residence Club Cabins are fully furnished and offer 1/8 fractional ownership in three floorplans offering thoughtfully designed three to five bedrooms from approximately 2,015 to 4,700 sq ft. priced from $340,000 – $490,000.

West Side

Mayflower Resort

The most significant development on the west side of Jordanelle is the new Mayflower Resort being built by Extell Development on the west side of Hwy. 40, directly south of the Deer Crest community. North America’s newest ski resort since 1980, Mayflower Mountain Resort boasts 4,300-acres of skiable terrain, 3,200-foot vertical, 15 lifts and incredible terrain variety. This new luxurious ski village and resort will consist of stacked condominium hotels, townhomes, and single family homesites dotting the slopes, a skier’s beach, and several luxury amenities such as a children’s center, ski school, lodge, ski club, spa and conference facility. The master plan will unfold over the next 15 – 25-years. Infrastructure has been in process for the past couple of years with vertical construction on their employee housing well underway. It’s expected that all for-sale properties will offer nightly rental capabilities, with details expected to unfold later this spring. Billed as “the first new resort in Utah in 15 years,” Mayflower has yet to announce the ski area operator, though we are hopeful Deer Valley® Resort will be selected.  Please let us know if you want to be on our VIP list to be on the inside track as sales details become available later this spring or early summer. Click here to express your interest.

SkyRidge

SkyRidge is a sizeable new subdivision with just under 500 homesites located on 670 acres, with over 50% dedicated as open space. The community cascades along the western shoreline of Jordanelle offering both homesites and speculative homes from a variety of builders. This community flanks the new Jordanelle Parkway which provides connectivity from the Mayflower interchange on Hwy 40 to Hwy 248 on the north end of the lake.

Amenities will include a public Clubhouse with indoor and outdoor gathering areas, a Golf Academy which includes a three-hole short course with par-3, par-4 and par-5 holes with multiple tee boxes and greens, operated by PGA professionals. There’s also a planned 34 stall equestrian center with dedicated trails that will also be public. Private amenities to the HOA will include infinity pool with cabanas, lounge, and fitness studio. Trail connectivity is currently available via a paved trail along the Parkway, and the developers are working with Mountain Trials Foundation to plan and link the non-motorized trails that will meander through the community to their existing 400-mile network.

SkyRidge currently offers a shuttle service for property owners to Deer Valley® Resort. SkyRidge is immediately adjacent one of two new “portals” to Deer Valley as part of the Mayflower Resort, which are pedestrian tunnels below Hwy 40 that connect to the base of the Deer Crest gondola and the new Mayflower Resort to the south. It is envisioned that there will be a future shuttle service connecting the Jordanelle communities to the base area via the portal, so property owners leave their cars at home and shuttle to skiing. Present offerings include homesites ranging in size from ¼ to just over ½ acre priced from the $700,000’s and numerous 4- and 5-bedroom spec homes priced from just under $3M.

Mayflower Lakeside

Phase I of this community twin-home just north of the Jordanelle State Park’s Hailstone area was completed about a decade ago. Phase II is now under construction by the same developer, Burbridge Investment Group, offering both townhomes and stacked flat condominiums. The townhomes are in twin-home configurations with 4 & 5 bedroom plans available, each with 2 car garage and ranging from 2,800 – 5040 sq ft. and priced from $1,794,000. Pricing details have not yet been released on the stacked flat configurations, but we anticipate a late spring launch and numbers starting close to $1,000,000. Again, reach out to be on our early release interest list.

Heber Side

Benloch Ranch

Benloch Ranch is a new 2,500+ acre community now being developed on the south end of Jordanelle. The current phases offer new sustainably produced, prefabricated homes with a unique modern style. Planned amenities include a commercial center with grocery and retail, shuttle service to nearby Deer Valley® Resort, a kid’s camp and beginner ski/sledding hill, skeet shooting, skating pond, storage facilities, 20+ miles of multi-use trails, a skating pond and yurt & backcountry camping. Current home plans range from 3-bedroom 4 bath home with 2,100 sq ft, and a two-car garage with base pricing at $1.54M to their largest plan, which is a 5 bedroom, 6 bath configuration which is just over 5,000 sq. ft priced at just over $2.7M.

Jordanelle Ridge

Jordanelle Ridge is a Holmes Homes community now under construction offering triplex townhomes on the south end of the Jordanelle off Route 32, overlooking the Heber Valley and Mt. Timpanogos. This location also offers views of the Provo River which is highly regarded as one of the premier blue-ribbon fly-fishing spots in the state. The triplexes offer 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2 car garages, with sizing from 2.433 – 2,722 sq. ft. Current pricing has not yet been released; however, they are being marketed as “more affordable”, so it is likely they’ll land below the $1,000,000 threshold. Next release is slated for July.

The information here is accurate as of March 7, 2022. Projects not mentioned are either sold out or are of an age that resales are coming on the market. Please contact Christine at 435-640-4238 for the most up-to-date availability and pricing. The real estate offerings around the Jordanelle will be as dynamic as the iconic Wasatch mountains and you can count on Choose Park City to be in the know on any and all offerings in the pipeline.

Park City Housing Market Update – March 2022

Fresh snow blanketing the ski runs in The Colony at Park City Resort

After a bit of a hiatus in January and February, winter has returned to Park City over the last week, with fresh snow blanketing town and sunny, bluebird days following the storms. Perhaps another “Miracle March” (or even April) is in order for more snow and moisture for the rivers and reservoirs? Time will tell.

Make no mistake, despite minimal new snow over the last 8 weeks, town is as busy as ever with some local property management companies reporting their first time ever having every unit in their portfolio fully booked for the first week of March. In addition, while January was not a slow month in the market, the pace and number of buyers in town has definitely picked up as we went through February and entered March. The increased interest is substantiated by our Summit Sotheby’s Park City office sales numbers, which in the first week of March were just over $68,000,000 in new pending contracts, and just over $105,000,000 in closed transactions.

This month we break down the current numbers as observed in February, a review of some notable numbers for the broader market and its performance in 2021, and a look back at some key metrics for our team in the past year. Let’s dive in!

Park City Real Estate 2021 Review

In a recent recap meeting of the 4th Quarter of the Park City market, we were able to look at the year-over-year stats from the end of 2020, and how the market has continued to evolve. Below are a handful of observations and key statistics that stood out to us from the past year, though there are many notable metrics depending on your specific location and price point. If you’re curious about your current neighborhood, or an area where you are considering a purchase, reach out to us directly for a more customized analysis.

  • The median price for a single family home in the Park City limits (zip 84060) rose by 32% year-over-year to $3,300,000
  • The neighborhoods of Thaynes and Prospector saw massive jumps in YoY median price increases with jumps of 71% to $2,300,000 and 87% to $2,400,000 respectively
  • Across the board in PC, Snyderville Basin, Heber, and Wanship/Hoytsville, the number of homes sold dropped, while the average prices all increased by double digit figures, which tells us that buyer demand remains very strong
  • Promontory led all areas in the number of single family homes sold YoY with 113, and the sold volume with $412,000,000 in sales closed
  • Growth in areas outside of Park City remains very robust with the average single family home price in Heber increasing by a whopping 46%, and the number of land sales in the Jordanelle increasing by 37% with an average price increase of 77% YoY; both Heber and Jordanelle remain sought after locations with a ton of future growth and development in the pipeline
  • Raw land availability is very limited in the Park City limits with only 40 parcels selling (down 7%) while the median sale price jumped up by 57%
  • The median price for a condo in the Park City limits increased by 36% YoY from $956,000 to $1,300,000

Overall as a general trend, actively listed inventory on the Park City MLS remains at or around record lows, while the number of sales have decreased and overall prices have increased. This indicates that there is still strong buyer demand and that there is a lack of inventory, not a weakening market.

Utah as a whole is roughly 50,000 housing units short of satisfying the current buyer demand, and with only 15,000-17,000 units forecasted to be completed annually, a high level of demand with increasing prices is currently projected to be the norm, instead of the exception. Add in *forecasted population increases from 2020 to 2060 of 40% for Summit County, 132% for Wasatch County, and 41% for Salt Lake County and we could be looking back in 10 or 20 years wishing we had bought more real estate in 2022.

Park City Real Estate Market Stats for March

It’s no secret and is a common talking point that inventory is low. However, the common mistake is that there are no homes to buy, and that isn’t true. The market simply requires added layers of skillset and networking to source a property that suits your needs. Many homes aren’t hitting the market, so having an agent that can find opportunities before they are broadcast to the public is key, as is having a pre-defined, specific set of criteria. Simply put, if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it’s a lot tougher to find it.

An interesting observation as of the day I’m writing this (3/10/22) for the greater Heber Valley, Jordanelle, Kamas Valley, Snyderville Basin, and Park City limits, there are currently 237 active residential listings. Of those there are only 123 available units, as the remainder are either under construction or pending construction. So in reality, 49% of current inventory isn’t even usable at this time, further exacerbating the competition for existing homes and condos.

Active residential inventory in Park City and the Snyderville Basin for the month of February ticked up slightly by 8.4% from the previous month, while still being down by 57.7% from February of 2021 – and we all thought the market was tight then!

Park City Housing Market Update – October 2021

Park City’s iconic Town Lift and ski bridge to Main Street blanketed in a fresh layer of snow.

As I sit here writing this update and looking out the office window, Park City is coated in a brilliantly white blanket of fresh snowfall and it’s signature deep blue skies. If I didn’t know better, I’d say it looks more like mid-December than mid-October, the only difference being that the lifts aren’t spinning and the resort parking lots are mostly empty. Just a few days ago we were experiencing incredible Fall weather with Aspen groves displaying their most vibrant foliage in perhaps decades before the temperature cooled off and Autumn rain showers turned to winter-like snowfall.

Despite the shift in weather, the Park City real estate market is not cooling off. While there are noticeably less people in town, sales activity remains robust while inventory remains historically low. Last week our Park City Summit Sotheby’s offices pended nearly $75,000,000 in sales volume while closing just shy of $100,000,000 in volume in the same span. These are very robust numbers, especially considering that this is traditionally a relatively slower time in the market.

While the phrase “perception is reality” may be an applicable phrase to daily life and making the best out of ones circumstances, we would shy away from utilizing this moniker in relation to the Park City housing market. Different agents, buyers, and sellers will all have different experiences based on the types of property, the price point, and the location that they are trading in. Seeking advice from agents that consistently work in your location, price bracket, and property type is imperative, and combining that “boots on the ground” perspective along with what the market data and statistics are telling us is more important than ever. Factual numbers keep us all grounded in the reality of the marketplace, and help prevent false narratives from being spun and perspectives from being unintentionally skewed. We’ll look at some market data first, then shift to our personal perspective and experience. Think of it like reading the headline news first, followed by the opinion piece.

Park City Real Estate Market Stats

While the monthly supply of all available inventory on the Wasatch Front (greater Salt Lake Valley) has been steadily increasing from February through August, the Wasatch Back including Park City has seen less of a gain. After seeing a slight uptick in April and May with new listings coming to market in the springtime, inventory has continued to drop, with Park City proper registering less than one months supply of inventory. A sellers market is generally regarded as 0-3 months of inventory, so anything below a month is extremely strong for sellers and means there is very limited inventory for buyers. Average days on market also ticked up slightly in the spring, but has been in an overall decline since then.

Park City Homes and Condos Below $1,000,000

  • Median sold price decreased 10.7% from August 2021 and decreased by 15.1% from September 2020 to a current price of $541,500. This would be an interesting number to break down by number of bedrooms and single family vs. condo, as my suspicion is these numbers are being skewed by progressively more units selling over the $1,000,000 mark. The overall pricing trend is still on the increase.
  • Median number of days on the market for September decreased again to just 7 days, down from 18 DOM in August 2021, and 20 DOM in September 2020. We continue to hear of new inventory in this price bracket receiving offers before buyers have even seen the property which would add to a further decline in days on market.
  • Active inventory decreased 33.3% from August 2021, and is down a whopping 83.2% from September 2020. For September 2021 there were only 46 active condos and homes on the market under $1,000,000, of which there is currently only 1 single family home.

Park City Homes and Condos Between $1,000,000 and $3,000,000

  • Median sales price ticked down slightly from August 2021 by 1.7%, and is down 5.7% from September 2021 to a current price of $1,565,000
  • Median number of days on the market for September 2021 almost doubled from the previous period, up to 17 DOM from only 9 DOM in August 2021, and down by 39.3% from 28 days on market in September 2020
  • Inventory is down 27.5% from 91 active listings in August 2021, and is down 61.2% from September 2020 a year ago, finishing September 2021 with 66 homes and condos on the market. There are currently 33 single family homes for sale, only 4 of which are located in the 84060 area code.

Park City Homes and Condos Above $3,000,000

  • Median sold price is up 5.0% from August 2021, and is up 6.4% from September 2020 to a current median sold price of $4,750,000. Just for reference, that number in February 2021 was $3,700,000.
  • Median number of days on market for February 2021 are 11 which is down 70.3% from 37 days on market in January 2021, and down substantially by 94.8% from 213 days in February 2020
  • Active inventory continues to drop across the board, with September 2021 registering 81 actives, down 12.9% from August 2021, and decreased by 52.9% from September 2020 a year ago

Our Observations of the Park City Real Estate Market

The autumn season in Park City always seems to bring with it a slowing in the general pace of town. Less visitors to town, less traffic and out of state plates, and just a more relaxed vibe throughout. With that in mind, there is also generally a slowing in the pace of real estate sales. We have observed that there does seem to be less buyers actively looking to purchase at the moment, though a number of these folks are simply hitting pause until after the holidays.

As inventory has decreased from earlier this summer, fewer options for buyers has lead to listings remaining competitive with multiple offers still relatively common. Good quality homes that are well priced remain in short supply and very competitive. The demand for condos under $1,000,000 remains very robust with a unit near Old Town recently receiving 26 offers, while another nearby had 10 offers. Single family homes within the Park City school district, especially in neighborhoods like Silver Springs, Ranch Place, and Park Meadows also remain highly sought after.

As a buyer, being prequalified or even pre-underwritten with a lender is essential, along with the willingness to be competitive with strong offer terms and timelines in addition to the offer price. It’s okay to be patient and wait to find the right thing, but if a property that is more than 80% of what you’re looking for hits the market, it would be wise to not overthink it.

For sellers the market remains strong, and the lack of competition (pending property type and location) at this time of year may be an incentive to list now as we can never be sure what the future holds. As always, listing with an agent who has a proven success rate and metrics to back it up is imperative. While we have seen more price reductions over the last few months, this is less of an indicator of a softening market, and much more about sellers over pricing their properties and being surprised when it hasn’t sold in a few weeks. Despite the strength of the market, relative value is still a major consideration of most buyers, and it is still possible to overprice your home.

Park City & Heber Valley Housing Market Update – March 2021

Sunset over the Wasatch Back looking down towards our new 82 Old Ranch Road listing

With March often comes the first preemptive pangs of Spring. These brief respites from mid-winter snow and cold are just enough to get a taste of spring skiing and après t-shirt weather, only for snow and mid-winter conditions to quickly return. Based on annual averages March is the snowiest month each season, and while the jury is still out on this season (fingers crossed for some BIG spring storms!) there is no mistaking that March in the real estate world is as busy as ever. Just the other week our Summit Sotheby’s Park City offices placed over $114,000,000 in real estate under contract, while another $75,000,000 in transactions closed. Despite record low inventory, we’re still finding ways to get deals done. A powerful and connected network, proactive prospecting, and localized marketing are the lynchpins to servicing our clients in such a competitive market.

And believe me, it’s not just Park City. The Salt Lake market has been even hotter with massive buyer demand and just not enough listings to go around. Nearly everything is selling in multiple offers, with 15-20 offers becoming borderline routine in coveted areas of the valley. The Heber Valley housing market – where we will focus attention today – has also been very active, so much so that many of the areas new developments are pausing sales so that they can catch up to the construction demand. Enough with the intro, let’s dive into this month’s numbers.

Park City Real Estate

In order to get to our primary focus in this month’s update which is looking at stats in the Heber Valley housing market, I will keep the Park City portion of the update fairly general and brief. Lumping together single family homes and condos, it’s no surprise that active inventory continues to decrease, down 19% from January, and decreasing a whopping 62% from February 2020. New contracts in February were down 11% from January – not surprising due to a steadily decreasing inventory – but more than doubled up 132% from February 2020. This is due in large part to the fact that pretty much everything being listed (and even homes not listed) is going under contract as soon as it is listed. Average sales prices continue upwards with a 28% increase from January, and a 56% increase from February 2020 to a current average sold price of $2,200,000. More details below.

Park City Homes and Condos Below $1,000,000

  • Median sold price increased 16.1% from January 2021 and decreased by 17.1% from February 2020 to a current price of $612,450
  • Median number of days on the market for February improved to a more “normal” sellers market at 28 days, surprisingly up from 11 DOM in February 2020, and up from 1 day on market in January 2021
  • Active inventory decreased 29.3% from January 2021, and is down 62.7% from February 2020, finishing the month of February 2021 with only 106 Park City condos and homes on the market, only 2 of which are single family homes

Park City Homes and Condos Between $1,000,000 and $3,000,000

  • Median sales price ticked up slightly from January 2021 up 3.6%, and is down 9.5% from February 2020 to a current price of $1,607,150.
  • Median number of days on the market for February 2021 are down to 6, a 14.3% decrease from January 2021, and down by 90.8% from 65 days on market in February 2020
  • Inventory is down 19.4% from 93 active listings in January 2021, and is down a massive 72.7% from February 2020 a year ago, finishing January 2021 with 75 homes and condos on the market

Park City Homes and Condos Above $3,000,000

  • Median sold price dropped 12.9% from January 2021, and is down 5.1% from February 2020 to a current median sold price of $3,700,000
  • Median number of days on market for February 2021 are 11 which is down 70.3% from 37 days on market in January 2021, and down substantially by 94.8% from 213 days in February 2020
  • Active inventory continues to drop even at the higher prices, with February 2021 registering 114 actives, down 8.1% from January 2021, and decreased by 49.3% from February 2020 a year ago

Heber Valley Real Estate

Drawing many parallels to the Park City real estate market over the last year, the Heber Valley area (including Heber, Midway, and surrounding areas) has also seen large increases in average price with large decreases in homes for sale. In May of 2020, active inventory for single family homes at at 156 units, well within the average range for spring time inventory over the previous 5-6 years. June 2020 began the slide into a steadily decreasing amount of inventory, to what is currently only 34 actively listed single family homes in the entire area.

While inventory has drastically decreased, median sales prices for single family homes have drastically increased. From $459,000 in April 2020, to a $1,071,601 median sales price in February 2021, the Heber Valley housing market has seen a massive shift. While the area is still considered an “affordable” alternative to Park City, there is no doubt the pricing accessibility is shifting dramatically. The same can be said for new construction developments in the area, of which there are many. As construction costs increase, so do the prices of new home builds. Some developers are even halting sales and adding monthly sales limits, as opposed to ordinarily trying to hit sales goals, so that they have an opportunity to catch up on construction for new builds that are already under contract. More details on this months pricing below.

Park City Housing Market Update – February 2021

Snow, sweet, glorious snow. After a very dry start to this winter, it has been wonderful to see fresh flakes falling on Main Street (and of course at the ski resorts!) on a more regular basis over the last few weeks. Finally, snow banks are steadily lining the streets of Old Town, and the turns underfoot on the mountain are much softer now than they were just a few weeks ago. It seems like 2021 just started, and yet it’s already February. However, in a way, the year did just begin for housing market stats, as with each monthly update we are sourcing our information from the previous month. So really, this is our first look into what has actually transpired so far in the 2021 marketplace. Just like the snowfall picking up in the new year, it feels like home sales have been following suit. Without further ado, let’s dive into this month’s Park City housing market update.

Park City Single Family Homes

The transition from December to January in the Park City housing market – or most any market for that matter – is always an interesting one. Some home buyers and sellers are trying to push to close transactions before the year ends, whether for convenience or tax purposes, while others purposely wait until January for the exact same reason. I find some market stats to be a little bit skewed in this transition from old year to new, but still, there are some interesting numbers to take note of.

New listings are still down year over year, and also since the previous month, with a 14% decrease since January 2020, and a nearly 39% decrease from December 2020. With a very healthy buyer demand still in place, the continued decrease in new inventory will only serve to raise sale prices – which is great news for sellers – while making for less homes to go around for buyers, and the continuation of a very competitive marketplace. The number of new contracts written is about even from December 2020 to January 2021, however they have increased by nearly 65% compared to January 2020. Coupled with the decrease in listings mentioned above, this is further proof of a continued lack of inventory available for sale, and a market favoring experienced real estate traders, and veteran real estate agents. You better bring your A game.

Park City Home Inventory

A closer look at the active inventory numbers (homes available for sale at the end of a given month) confirms exactly this. Below is a graphic showing the active inventory for single family homes in Park City proper and Snyderville Basin on a monthly basis beginning in January of 2006.

Of course leading up to, and throughout the housing market crash/recession, we saw active inventory balloon as many people were selling out of necessity, but very few were looking to buy. Over a few years, the market started to correct itself, and from about January of 2013 through March of 2020, inventory was on a pretty steady, seasonally-influenced track. In June of 2020, we saw a single family inventory high of 356 properties, and then, well, the wheels came off the cart. Inventory since June of last year has plummeted, dropping consistently every month since then. Call it the Covid Effect, the big city exodus, or the Park City migration, it doesn’t matter what the name is. The fact is, that based on current levels of demand for Park City homes, there simply are not enough properties to go around. As a result, as with any marketplace that has higher demand than supply, prices go up.

Perhaps one piece of good news in all of this for Park City home buyers is that prices actually dropped this past month, both on a month to month and year over year basis. Interestingly enough, the median sales price is down by 8.5% from January 2020, and down by a surprising 31.7% from December 2020. This is particularly interesting for the fact that prices have been increasing every month since June 2020. December’s numbers may have been somewhat inflated due to some larger sales closing before the New Year, and January’s median sales price may be artificially deflated due to less inventory, and as a result some smaller single family homes selling at a lower price point. This is purely educated speculation on my part, but still, buyers should feel good that there has been some easing at least in terms of price, even if it’s only at higher price points and lasts for 30 days. February’s numbers will be an interesting indicator, and I also want to dive into other surrounding Park City housing markets like the Heber and Kamas Valleys next month, to see how high prices and low inventory have affected the generally more accessible price points.

Now that I have rambled on a bit longer than originally intended on the overall single family market year to date, we will take a closer look at the month of January, and a break down of the different price segments in the market below. This is where things get interesting and are more telling of the market and its various segments.
