Christy and Garth Gillespie, the Jackson Hole Experts at Sotheby’s International Realty, have just updated our Top Picks for April 23, 2009. Just about every 2 weeks we take a look at the Jackson Hole real estate market and look for the current “deals” in the market. We also review the current situation with pending transactions, closed transactions and noteable price reductions.

This week we note that there were 34 price corrections in the past 2 weeks. For Christy and I this is a good signal that sellers are becoming motivated to jump start the market. For the past 4 months the Jackson Hole real estate market has been painfully slow. We have credited alot of this “non-action” on the fact that sellers have been sitting back and waiting for the buyers to arrive. Well, here at Sotheby’s International Realty – Jackson Hole Brokerage, we have seen our fair share of buyers but very little contract activity. The economy has shown signs of stabilization or at least of bottoming and the result has been a slight increase in buyer activity and inquiries. The federal government has been helping by putting pressure on mortgage rates (lowering) and offering incentives for first time home buyers. To support this thinking we have seen 7 new pending transactions from all over the market. They include 4 single family homes ranging from $599,000 to $895,000, 1 Aspen’s home and a townhome at Teton Village priced at $1,795,000. Congrats and good luck to all the involved Jackson Hole real estate agents.

Best Deals in Jackson Hole Real Estate?

Christy and I just updated our Top Picks of the Week!

It sure feels nice to watch the stock markets rebounding a bit. As with everything and everybody the downward pressure the stock market has been under has certainly created a little negative energy to say the least. The pressure has assisted sellers with their pricing situation as we have started to see more reasonable pricing on the newest listings hitting the market. When you visit our Top Picks you will see that we also highlight Jackson’s “Closed Listing of the Week”, Jackson Hole’s “New Listing of the Week” and the “Price Reduction of the Week”. All of which should be informative for our readers.

Related to the “Closed Listing of the Week” we highlight the fact that 6 substantial closings have taken place in the past few weeks. Seeing activity is a welcome sign.

Where’s the Jackson Hole Real Estate Market Headed – Feburary Review

That’s a good question. Currently we are at a stand still as transactions are almost nonexistent. The month of February will go down as a month to forget or should I say a month that was forgotten. Totals for sales volume and units sold are unbelievably small.

Okay – enough baiting. When looking back on the month of February for sales in the entire Teton County Multiple Listing Service we find a grand total of 3 transactions! Since there are only three I can actually list them: 1. Fractional Sale at the Teton Club, 2. 1 Bedroom Condo, 500 square feet in the Town of Jackson for close to $300,000 and 3. a small single family home with development potential for a little over $600,000. That’s it. Sales Volume totaled close to $1,000,000.

How about new activity? Well, we did see some activity in Melody Ranch. 2 homes which were priced at, or above $1,000,000 this past summer, had some very aggressive price reductions which motivated a couple of buyers. Both transactions, if they close, with be under $700,000. There are a total of 41 pending residential transactions. Interesting to note – of the 41 pending transactions almost 30 of them are in the construction phase of development. 6 of the pending transactions are priced above $1,000,000 and 1 of those transactions is listed for $10.5 million! There are also 4 fractional units pending.

Current active inventory is at 708 listings, 506 of which are residential, 48 are fractional units and there are 152 building sites. Of the 152 building sites there are 5 pending transactions (2 in my opinion are suspect) and the other 3 are Commercial properties.

Where are we headed? …as I mentioned above – Good question. It is our opinion that until we see some light at the end of the tunnel with our economy our real estate market will stay in hibernation. We are still waiting to see some significant price reductions – especially on the lower/lowest end of the market. Christy and I see a solution to get our market moving but that takes the low end to move another 20% to 25% downward. This would stimulate first time home buyers. From there, the sellers of these properties could make a move at the next tier and so on.

The stimulus plan does give some incentives for first time home buyers ($8,000 tax credit) and interest rates are at historically low-low rates (under 5%). Incentives, low interest rates and lowering prices – bring it on. Christy and Garth Gillespie are eager to help. We want to be part of the “Jackson Hole Stimulus Plan”. Call us and let us help you make a move in this market. Read our blogs, our top picks or call for a free consultation.
