We have reached the mid-year mark and I would like to give you a short update on how the Park City real estate market is doing so far this year.
While total sales volume has increased across our three major market segments, the number of transactions overall has dropped year-over-year (YOY) based on our 12 month rolling average. Well-priced properties continue to be absorbed quickly, while sellers who are being bullish are waiting longer to achieve their pricing goals. Listing inventories increased across most neighborhoods considered ‘primary’, however, our inventory continues to remain low. Price appreciation is healthy when measured against both average and median prices. Our market is highly segmented, so please contact me if you have questions regarding your specific neighborhood.
