Park City Real Estate - Market Statistics - 2nd Quarter 2015

By Steve Blankenship
Aug 11, 2015

Summer is in full swing. We are enjoying the wonderful weather hiking, biking, boating or one of the many outdoor concerts and events. Vail is installing new lifts and building new lodges as part of their one year, $50 million investment combining Park City and Canyons Resort into the largest ski resort in the US. Furthermore, Deer Valley has closed on their purchase of Solitude, and ONE Wasatch effort to unite all six resorts continues to move forward. All in all, its a very exciting time.

Along with that we are happy to announce that the number of closed sales and total dollar volume for this first half of 2015 are the highest since 2007. While prices are certainly not back to the market highs of 2007 our market is steady. The total number of closed sales, year-to-date, for the entire market area was nine percent higher than the first two quarters of 2014 and was the highest first half of any year since 2007. Along with that, the total dollar volume was up 11 percent and the median sales price continued to trend upward on a gentle curve in most areas. In fact today's median sales price is the same as June 2006 and July 2010.

INVENTORY: Following the national trend, inventory levels throughout Park City are still very low, with only 1,170 total listings available as of June 30, down 8.5 percent from 1,270 in 2014. At this current absorption rate we have a 6.6 month supply.

PENDED SALES: For the first 6 months of the year, pended sales reached their highest level since 2006 with just over 900 contracts written.

SINGLE FAMILY HOME SALES: The median sales price for a single family home within the city limits has remained close to $1.34 million over the past twelve months, while the average price has actually come down 11 percent. Overall sales in the Prospector neighborhood increased significantly with an increase of 89 percent in transactions, almost double the number of sales compared to the previous four quarters. Sales price climbed eight percent, reaching $700,000.

CONDOMINIUM TRENDSCondominium sales are up nine percent over the previous 12 months and we have seen a 14 percent overall increase in median sales price in the entire market area. Again, sales in Prospector had the highest jump in number of sales, also with a median sales price increase reaching $132,000. Lower Deer Valley is showing signs of recovery with more than double the number of sales along with a 15 percent median sales price increase to $735,000. The Canyons area, with its wide-ranging property types, was up 41 percent in the number of sales over the previous four quarters with a median sales price of $389,000. Jeremy Ranch showed an increase of activity with 58 percent more sales than the previous four quarters and a price increase to $535,000.

VACANT LAND SALES:  The number of Vacant Land sales for the entire market area was slightly higher than the previous four quarters and lot prices increased 10 percent in median sales price. The Jordanelle area continued to grow with lot sales up 21 percent.

GOLF COMMUNITIES: With 75 closed transactions since January, Promontory had the highest number of sales with a median sales price of about $1.56 million. Red Ledges is also going strong with 43 closed sales.

If you own property, this might be a very good time to get a market analysis to consider your options. Our market is showing a good solid, steady growth. Inventory remains very tight. For those looking to buy, multiple offers are still quite common in high demand neighborhoods so it is important to be well qualified and responsive.

Park City Real Estate Market Update - First Quarter 2015

By Steve Blankenship
May 20, 2015

Looking back at the first four months of real estate transactions  in the greater Park City real estate we continue to see an increase in pricing while inventory levels remain at historic lows. As a result of strong sales and happy guests there were only 1,017 total properties available – 360 single family homes, 411 condominiums and 327 lots. (April 1, 2015).

This march we saw the highest number of pended sales since 2006 with condominium sales being up 18%. Closed sales also saw double digit growth and were 11.5% higher than 2014 with an average 17% increase in sales price compared to last year.

SINGLE FAMILY TRENDS: Within the Park City limits, the number of single family transactions decreased 8% with volume was down 17%. However, the median price rose from $1,300,000 to $1,600,000 for a 23% increase. Overall sales in the Snyderville Basin increased significantly, with a 21% increase in transactions, 74% increase in volume and 31% increase in median prices, which rose to $963,000 from 2014’s median of $735,000.

CONDOMINIUM TRENDS: Condominium sales were down slightly in Park City proper, with a 3% decrease in transitions. Overall volume increased 9% while the media decreased from $712,250 to $680,000. Interestingly enough, the average condominium price increased 13% to $1,205,305. In the Snyderville Basin, the most dramatic increases occurred at the Canyons where the number of transactions doubled from 11 to 22. While volume increased 145%, the median price fell 9% from $399,000 to $362,500. Notable increases in condominium sales volume were noted in Pinebrook, with 11 sales versus 7 during the same period last year.

LAND SALES TRENDS: Land sales are extremely limited within Park City proper as we are near build-out. There were just 7 land sales, up from 3 the prior year with the median price dropping 38% to $589,000. Decreases were also noted in the Snyderville Basin, with a 12% decrease in transactions and a 29% decrease in median price to $273,000.

NEW CONSTRUCTION: For the second year in a row, construction is booming in Summit County. First-quarter data from the county's building department shows 181 building permits issued from January through March, which represents a 47-percent jump from the same period last year. It is a 99-percent increase compared to 2013.

We look forward to our transition to a "Two Resort" town: Vail Resorts is already underway with construction on the gondola connection between Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons as well as the yet-to-be renamed Snow Hut Restaurant.NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO LIST YOUR PROPERTY With the spring selling season well underway, low inventory continues to be our biggest story. Depending on when you purchased your property, this is likely an ideal time to sell. Please reach out for a detailed analysis of current market trends in your particular neighborhood.

Park City Real Estate Market Statistics - First Quarter

By Steve Blankenship
May 08, 2014

Real Estate activity in the greater Park City area has not yet returned to pre-recession levels but we are definitely on the re-bound and are moving in the right direction with the number of closed sales in the first quarter of 2014 being the highest since 2007.

While it may seem counter intuitive, in Park City our first quarter statistics are typically lower than might be expected. Second home buyers in town during ski season typically use the season to shop available inventory, making purchase decisions after April when the resorts close and inventory is more available for showings after the nightly guests are out of the equation.

In the past months new product has been in high demand and most of it is currently located in the Jordanelle area where you can get a nice new product in the $400,000 range. In the first quarter of 2014, single-family home sales in the Jordanelle area increased by 75 percent from the first quarter in 2013 while condominium sales increased by 37 percent. Only a few vacant lots are still available in the Jordanelle area. Furthermore, we have seen a lot of interest in areas such as Park Meadows and Snyderville Basin. Snyderville Basin includes Silver Creek, Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook and Kimball Junction. The Snyderville Basin area has had the highest number of vacant land sales with 42 to date, and condominium sales in the area increased by 20 percent from last year.

While Old Town is seeing a decrease in sales, the numbers are still higher than in any other Park City neighborhood. Between December 1 and April 7 of this year 12 homes and 62 condos sold as well as three lots. The median price for a single family home in the Old Town area has reached $1.1 million, which may account for the decrease in sales. However, the median price for a single family home in the Park Meadows area decreased by three percent to $1,255,000, which could have contributed to the 16 percent increase in sales. Park Meadows has also seen 12 home sales, nine condo sales and one lot sale.

In the Deer Valley real estate area Empire Pass and Upper Deer Valley saw the most activity this ski season. Empire Pass had 1 home sale, 15 condos sales and currently has eight more condos pending. Upper Deer Valley on the other hand has had 12 condo sales, four home sales in the price range of 2.95-12.5 and 2 more pending.

Promontory is still selling strong with 11 home sales, 21 lot sales and 16 pending listings.

Median prices for single-family homes in primarily residential areas like Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook and Trailside increased to $725,000, $688,000 and $529,250, respectively.

Inventory is still at a historic low. We are seeing an increasing demand in Park City area real estate but not enough new product.

Low inventory continues to have significant impact on our marketplace. Inventory is down 10% YOY, but on a positive note inventory levels rose towards the end of the quarter to 9.7 months, up from 7.9%. We anticipate additional increases as the spring primary housing market is heating up. The average absorption rate is between 5-6 months.

Park City Real Estate Market - Review 2013

By Steve Blankenship
Feb 11, 2014

After analyzing the sales numbers for both homes, condos and land in the Park City area, the Park City Board of Realtors is happy to announce that the Park City real estate market has seen 2,230 sales in 2013 up 22 percent from the previous year and double the sales of 2009. We have seen a steady appreciation of seven percent over 2012 and there is a high demand for Park City property in all price ranges. The only problem - inventory is at an all-time low.

Park City Homes

Jeremy Ranch topped the sales list of 2013. A total of 73 single-family homes sold ranging between $325,000 and $2.857 million closely followed by Old Town with 68 homes sales, Silver Springs with 58 and Park Meadows with 56. Currently the average time to sell a home is 7.4 months. However, many homes in Trailside and Silver Springs have sold a lot faster.

Overall the total dollar volume for single family homes was the highest it has been since 2006. Inside the Park City Limits, the number of sales was up 12 percent and the median sold price reached $1,257,000 which is a 17percent increase over 2012. Demand is strong in Old Town with a 45 percent increase in the number of sales. Park Meadows is up eight percent in the number of sales compared to 2012 with a nice median price increase of 22 percent reaching $1,317,500.

In the Snyderville Basin area, sales were up 12 percent with a median price increase of nine percent. Silver Springs leaped 76 percent in the number of sales compared to 2012 and the median sales price increased 12 percent to $697,500. Jeremy Ranch sales have been up 26 percent over 2012 reaching a median sales price of $725,000. Trailside Park is up in the number of sales compared to 2012 by 53 percent with a median price increase to $520,000.

Park City Condos

Old Town was one of the most active areas in 2013 with 157 condos sold ranging from $121,000 to $2.5 million followed by 99 condo sales in Deer Valley (all areas), 75 at the Canyons and 73 at Kimball Junction. Pinebrook is another area of interest with a 33 percent increase in the quantity sold and a healthy 19 percent price increase to $322,500.

Vacant Land

We have seen 48 lots sales within the Park City Limits, 160 in Snyderville Basin, 45 at Jordanelle Reservoir and 16 in Jeremy Ranch. Land sales in Snyderville Basin increased 40 percent with a median price of $274,500. The Jordanelle area had the highest spike in the number of lot sales, up 105 percent to last year’s number with a median sales price of $145,000.

Distressed Sales

Distressed sales have declined to the point where "they are no longer a factor in our market".

Park City Real Estate - Market Update – August 2013

By Steve Blankenship
Aug 27, 2013

The second quarter of 2013 was the largest and strongest quarter of Park City Real Estate sales in more than 5 years. With both the number of sales and the median sales price up from last year we are very optimistic and excited for buyers to find great opportunities, and prices have come back to allow new sellers the opportunity to sell again.

We have seen a total of 991 sales this first half of 2013 which shows a 19% increase over the same time period in 2012. Total sales dollar volume is also up 19% over last year, reaching over $698 million to date. In fact, this first half of 2013 had the highest numbers of sales AND the highest total dollar volume since 2007.


Inventory is still about 9% less than what we have seen in previous years but it is slowly increasing. We currently see an absorption rate (the average time a listing remains on the market) for single family homes, condominiums, and vacant land of 5.7 months. That is a drastic reduction from the high point of just under 50 months set in April of 2009.

Distressed Sales

The number on foreclosures and short sales continue to decline and only make up about 5% of all sold properties in the second quarter of 2013, compared to 17% of all sales in 2012 and about 33% in 2011.

Single Family Homes

Good News! The median sales price in the Greater Park City real estate market is up 10% from last year. Within the Park City limits the median home price is up 12% to about $1,245,000. We also experienced a 16% increase in the number of sales within the Park City limits. Of course, these values vary slightly from neighborhood to neighborhood. For example, while sales are up in Silver Springs, sales are down on Old Ranch Road. On the other hand, median sales price in Silver Springs only increased by 6% while it increased by 62% in Old Ranch Road.


The Greater Park City condo market is up 12% in terms of sales and 6% in regards to sales price. The median sales price of condominiums in the Park City Limits, for the second quarter, is down slightly to $572,000 compared to $605,000 in 2012. Again, this varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Sales are up 52% in the Jordanelle area and 47% in Old Town while sales are down 10% in Lower Deer Valley. Median sales price in the Jordanelle area is up 8% and 34% in Old Town.

Vacant Land

In the Greater Park City real estate area, the median sales price for land is down 20%. Some areas like Synderville or Jordanelle are up in sales but only due to a decrease in median sales price. However, vacant land sales climbed 39% in the Snyderville Basin and spiked upward 138% in the Jordanelle Area compared to 2012! In the Park City Limits, vacant land sales followed the same trend as single family homes with an increase in the number of sales of 26% compared to the same time period last year and a moderate increase in median price of 12%, reaching $525,000.
