Jackson Hole Real Estate Market Report | 2019 Quarter 1

The Jackson Hole real estate market is off to a strong start through the first quarter of 2019, buoyed by continued demand for high-dollar properties. A jump in luxury property sales significantly pushed up the overall average and median sales prices, including one notable property listed above $17 million, even though the number of transactions fell compared to the first quarter of 2018.

The number of sales recorded fell 11% in the first quarter compared to the same period a year earlier, but the average sale price increased 79%. That jump was driven primarily by transactions between $2 – $5 million, which jumped 71%, and sales above $5 million, which grew 83%, compared to the first quarter of 2018. Sales in the luxury market (above $3 million) grew 33 percent. The acceleration on the upper end of the market skews the overall average and median sale prices, which emphasizes the need to consider each segment independently.

Single-family homes made up the lion’s share of transactions, 44%, followed closely by condominiums and townhomes, which accounted for 40%. Overall, inventory dropped again, down 10% from the first quarter of 2018. Properties are also continuing to sell faster, with the average time on market down to 176 days.

Inventory fell 10 percent compared to the first quarter of 2018, continuing a trend of tightening supply in the Jackson Hole market. There were 126 transactions recorded in the first quarter of 2019, which marks an 11 percent decline from a year earlier.

Jackson Hole Market Report

Jackson Hole’s real estate market ended the year predictably strong. The draw of Jackson Hole’s rugged beauty and active lifestyle continues to reflect in our real estate market, with 2018 bringing in 10% more transactions and a 35% increase in dollar volume. Average and median sale prices were also up, increasing 16% and 11%, respectively. Several notable sales drove these figures, including the sale of the Snow King Hotel, a historic ranch property southeast of town, and a ranching / equestrian property on Spring Gulch Road.

Properties under $500,000 have become even more difficult to find, evidenced by a 24% decrease in sales. That category made up only 12% of the year’s transactions. Most sales took place in the $500,000 – $1 million segment, accounting for 36% of sales. Single family homes accounted for about 44% of all transactions this year, a 20% increase over 2017. Overall, inventory dropped about 6% and properties are selling nearly 15% faster.

While the total dollar volume in quarter 1 of 2018 was almost the same as 2017, number of transactions increased significantly, up 22%. Average sale price decreased by 36%, this figure was skewed by a large transaction in 2017. The median sale price decreased by 11% and was a function of the type of property transactions that took place in the beginning of 2018. Nearly 60% of the transactions in quarter 1 were in the under $1 million price segment, a 40% increase when compared to the same period last year. New inventory remained very low driving average days on market down, decreased 15%.

In this detailed report, you will find information on the market segments making up the Jackson Hole area. As the market leader in Jackson Hole, we have developed a more dynamic report that sheds fresh light on the insights and trends that are shaping our real estate market.

Persistent demand and lean supply drove prices upward in 2017. Even though the number of transactions remained steady, average and median sale prices increased by 15% and 3%, respectively. The south of Jackson area received the largest increase in the number of transactions, up nearly 60% compared to last year. This is primarily due to the success of the Snake River Sporting Club development, which had 26 transactions in 2017. Properties in the $500,000- $1 million price range were the most popular representing about 37% of total transactions. Active listings declined 23% compared to last year which caused an even more competitive environment for buyers. With 50 properties under contract at 2017 year-end, the start to the new year is expected to follow much of the same pattern of 2017.

The Jackson Hole real estate market remained strong at the start of the new year. The overall number of transactions increased about 14% when compared to the first quarter of 2016. The vast majority of transactions took place in the $500,000-$1 million price segment. This was a change from the first quarter of 2016 when transactions were more evenly distributed between the $500,000-$2 million price segment. This change can be attributed to an increase in vacant land transactions, up about 50%. Inventory remained at historical lows, down about 13% when compared to the first quarter of last year.

The number of active listings decreased, down about 13%, and the number of listings under contract decreased about 7% when compared to the first quarter of 2016. View Full Report Here

Market Report – Year End 2014

Overall Market
Jackson Hole’s real estate market in 2014 could be defined as continued recovery and the return of a seller’s market, which is a refreshing sentiment for those invested in the real estate market, and stability for those looking to get into the market. The overall trends of 2014 showed more of the same – fewer overall transactions, increased average sale prices and very low inventory. The overall number of transactions in 2014 dropped about 13% when compared to 2013. As appreciation became reality, particularly in the lower-priced segments, the average sale price increased over 6%. Also, greatly affected was the median sale price, which climbed nearly 17% over last year, rising to $750,000. Nonetheless, the climb in sale prices was not enough to outpace the lack of transactions, which resulted in a decrease in overall dollar volume of about 5%. This decrease in total dollar volume can also be attributed to the distribution of sales, which overwhelmingly consisted of properties under $1M, or about 65% of all sales. Also notable, and comprising about 14% of 2014’s transactions, were property sales between $2M and $5M, which increased by 10%. The low supply of Jackson Hole inventory, down about 18% in 2014, has been consistent over the past 2 years, and this we anticipate driving appreciation in most market segments.

3rd Quarter- 2014 – Results – Jackson Hole Real Estate

Christy and Garth Gillespie, The Jackson Hole Real Estate Experts, and Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates are proud to release the latest statistics on the Jackson Hole Real Estate market.

3rd Quarter 2014 Jackson Hole Real Estate Report

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Market Report – 3rd Quarter 2014
Overall Market: The Jackson Hole real estate market finished the 3rd quarter of the year with rousing statistics. At 2014 mid-year, the market had yet to see much growth from the previous year. However, the end of the summer brought impressive gains from the previous quarter with total dollar volume remaining level compared to the same period last year with an approximate 12% drop in the number of sales. This is a shift from previous quarters in 2014 where the total dollar volume struggled to keep pace with the robust activity in 2013. The market has been able to maintain a level dollar volume of sales despite a double digit drop in the total number of transactions, it is a clear indicator that market values are increasing. When looking at the market as a whole – the average and median sale prices increased about 14% – 15%. In fact, the average and median sale prices increased in every segment of the market. Market share continues to be taken away from the under $500,000 segment (down 5%) while the over $2M segment increased nearly 5%, respectively. Overall inventory continues to decrease each quarter. When compared to the third quarter of 2013, inventory is down 13%. See more detail below on each segment of the Jackson Hole real estate market.

Single Family Market: The single family segment made incredible gains in price appreciation compared to the 3rd quarter of 2013. The median sale price of a single family home in Jackson Hole reached $1,100,000, a $300,000 increase from this time last year. The major difference being the shift from sales in the under $500,000 category (down 73%) to the sale of homes over $1M (up 15%). Finding a single family home under $500,000 can be challenging – there have been 9 this year compared to 33 this time last year. This growth is undeterred by the considerable drop in the number of transactions, which are down 22% over last year. As is typical of the single family segment, the majority of the transactions took place in the Town of Jackson and South of Jackson, albeit in much smaller quantities this year. The greatest increase in sales took place south of Wilson with a 138% increase in transactions. The single family home inventory remains low; particularly, homes under $1M with inventory down 23%.

Condo/Townhouse Market: Condominiums and townhomes in Jackson Hole have been on the upswing. With a more affordable price tag than single family homes, condominiums and townhomes have been very popular and transactions have remained level when compared to last year. This stability contributed to a total dollar volume increase of 5%, making this the only major segment of the market with an increase in total dollar volume. Condominiums and townhomes were among the first properties to experience appreciation and sale price gains during the market recovery. This trend has continued this year with both average and median sale prices increasing approximately 7% – 8%. The median sale price of a condominium/townhome in Jackson Hole has risen to approximately $452,000. About half of the condominium/townhome sales this year were under $500,000. At this time last year, nearly 60% of the sales were under $500,000. The lack of inventory was especially prominent in this segment of the market with active listings at the end of the 3rd quarter down 27% from last year.

Vacant Land Market: The vacant land segment of the market has made continued improvement. While the number of sales were down about 20% from 3rd quarter of 2013, the average sale price was up 20%. This was spurred by a 55% increase in the number of sales between $2M and $5M, and a 34% decrease in the number of sales under $500,000. Possibly a more accurate measure of the vacant land market is the median sale price which increased 2% over last year. Historically, the Town of Jackson and the area South of Jackson compete for the most land sales of any other area. However, the Town of Jackson had a huge drop (down 78%) in land sales compared to this time last year, and the area South of Jackson proved to be a hotspot with 24 total land sales. This accounted for about 31% of all land sales this year, far more than any other area. The vacant land segment as a whole has continually improved each quarter since market recovery. Land sales have been marred by the huge amount of inventory in the past, however, this trend continues to improve, with an approximate 10% drop in the number of parcels currently listed for sale. Vacant land will become more popular with buyers as existing home inventory diminishes, as well as affordability.

Luxury Spotlight: Jackson Hole, Wyoming is synonymous with luxury and is an international marketplace for luxury real estate. The demand for high quality, exclusive properties has outperformed this time period last year by approximately 18% when looking at the number of transactions. The total dollar volume of those transactions accounted for over $160M in sales, an approximate 11% increase over last year. Record Sale (through Q3): $24,500,000 (list price). Average Sale Price Above $3M: $5,706,708. Number of Sales Above $3M: 26

Jackson Hole Real Estate Market Update – 1st Quarter 2014

1st Quarter 2014 Real Estate Market Report

Overall Market: The first quarter of 2014 made a strong bid to keep pace with the overwhelming improvement of the real estate market seen in the first quarter of 2013. The 1st quarter ended with the number of transactions down by about 3% when compared to the first quarter of 2013, a negligible decrease in the larger picture. The primary factor which contributed to this decrease in transactions is the decline in inventory available to buyers, down nearly 25% compared to the first quarter of 2013. This has been a continuous trend in 2014, and it’s been slowing some of the ready, willing and able buyers from purchasing because of this slight inventory. The total dollar volume of sales also experienced a drop, decreasing about 14% over last year’s first quarter. Nonetheless, the median sales price actually increased about 6%, from $675,000 to $716,000. This can be attributed to the dominance of the $500,000 to $1 million dollar sales which accounted for about 35% of the total sales, more than any other single price segment. With inventory levels at historic lows, you can expect 2014 to bring a unique challenge to both buyers and sellers. Buyers will struggle to find quality properties at supportable prices. At the same time, sellers will struggle with the decision of whether or not to sell in 2014 or choose to wait. Many sellers sense the market is improving, and prices will likely rise as the law of supply and demand holds true, as it has demonstrated in many segments of the market.

Q1 2014 Graph 2
Single Family Segment: The statistical information for the first quarter of 2014’s single family segment displays some interesting facts about the Jackson Hole real estate market and implores further explanation. The number of transactions decreased approximately 30% when compared to the same time period last year. However, the average sales price remained roughly the same, and the median sales price actually increased about 20%, to $980,000. The vast majority (44%) of the single family home sales occurred in the $500,000 to $1 million price range. Most captivating about this segment of the market is what the future holds. At the time of this report, there were 28 homes for sale in the $500,000 to $1 million price range. Those 28 homes only represent 22% of the available inventory. This means nearly half of all potential single family home buyers must compete for a very small piece of the pie. This supply and demand equation has already showed signs of appreciation, and it should continue as long as this shortage of inventory exists. A precise rate of appreciation varies depending on price range and area of the valley. There were only 3 sales under $500,000 this first quarter, and only 1 single family home is currently for sale under $500,000. While the future is bright for sellers with homes valued under $1 million, the market for homes over $1 million is much more competitive, especially in the over $5 million price range. This price range accounted for only 2 sales this first quarter of 2014, while there are 23 homes over $5 million currently for sale.

Condo & Townhome Segment: The condo and townhome segment of the market had an incredible year in 2013, and the first quarter of 2014 was no different. The number of transactions increased about 26% as well as an impressive 35% increase in total dollar volume. The condo and townhome segment of the market has experienced the most appreciation of any segment. Both average and median sale prices increased, nearly 4% and 16% respectively. The most astonishing statistic is the quarter to quarter comparison of the average sale price in the Town of Jackson where the majority of the condo and townhome sales occur. This segment had an over 30% increase in average sale price. About 50% of the condos and townhomes sold in the first quarter of 2013, sold for less than $500,000. In comparison, about 40% of the sales in the first quarter of 2014 were sold for less than $500,000. Active inventory in the condo and townhome segment is also in short supply, down nearly 20% from the first quarter of last year. With only 82 condos and townhomes currently for sale, there is less than a 6 month supply of inventory.

Q1 2014 Graph 1

Vacant Land Segment: In 2013, the vacant land segment of the market showed steady improvement as more and more buyers were unable to find homes to suit their needs in the limited single family home inventory pool, and speculative builders began to purchase land for new projects. The first quarter of 2014 continued this trend of steady growth with a modest increase in the number of transactions, up nearly 5% when compared to the first quarter of 2013. Based on the information available, it is estimated that the total dollar volume decreased slightly, however, due to the large number of sales with undisclosed sales prices, an exact total dollar volume figure is difficult to determine with certainty. Lack of inventory is not yet an issue in the vacant land segment of the market, yet the supply is decreasing, down over 20% compared to the first quarter of 2013. The price range with the least amount of supply is the under $500,000 price range. This lower price range represents just over 15% of the available inventory, yet it contributed to nearly 45% of this first quarter’s sales. All indications point to the vacant land segment continuing on a path of steady improvement.

In Summary: Following a record ski-season and #1 rating for the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort by Ski Magazine and Forbes Magazine, Jackson is experiencing more demand from people from all over the world who are coming to enjoy not only the Jackson lifestyle with countless world-class outdoor and cultural opportunities, but also Wyoming’s tax friendly status. With over 97% of our county protected in national parks, national forests, wildlife refuges and conservation easements, the remaining less than 3% of developable property is highly desirable for residents and second home buyers. With continued constraints on inventory and high levels of demand from buyers, we anticipate continued strong performance in the Jackson real estate market. Considering that Jackson’s lifestyle benefits are matched only by the financial benefits of Wyoming residency and the unparalleled flight access into Jackson Hole, with 12 direct flights, we believe that Jackson offers a “perfect storm” of real estate opportunity, security and access that will continue to appeal to the most discerning buyers.

What’s Going on with Real Estate in Jackson Hole and Nationwide?

kcm test 2

While reading the current news these days it is very easy to get confused when determining what is happening with real estate. One article you read talks about the next real estate bubble and then the next article talks about the worst month of home sales in almost 1 year. Well Christy and I are here to tell you that the real estate market is extremely healthy and we are seeing strong buying signals in just about every market here in Jackson Hole.

Why some of the negative information out there? The data we are using for comparing last years March totals verse 2014 March totals involves a lot of distressed properties that were on the market in 2013 and the strong push of buyers that swooped in to buy them before they were all gone.  Now we are seeing a big push by buyers to purchase by we are encountering a lack of inventory. The sales numbers for house sales in 2014 have been very strong but since there is not the added inventory from the foreclosures or “short sales” the sales totals are lower than in 2013.  But if we segment the sales by price point like the chart above the real story is that home sales are trending upward.

The chart above is from the National Association of Realtors.  Sales for homes over $500,000 (most of the Jackson Hole market) are above to way above 2013 numbers.  This data for for nationwide sales.  Here locally ours sales are tracking at the same rate as 2013 or just slightly lower. Why are we not trending as fast as the national average?  Inventory!  We have not seen a stronger Seller’s market in Jackson Hole since the mid 2000’s.
