Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty has analyzed all real estate sales in Teton County, Wyoming from the Teton County Multiple Listing Service for the year 2010. The big picture, and good news, is that sales volume is up from 2009, and is parallel with 2003 sales numbers. Sales volume for 2010 totaled $387,800,000 which is an 69% increase over 2009 ($229,200,000) and unit volume of 261 is up 28% from the 203 sales registered in the MLS in 2009. However, 2010 sales volume was still less than 1/2 of what is was in the peak of 2007, which saw real estate sales top out at $792,000,000 from 581 sales in Teton County.
It should be noted that not all real estate sales are registered in the MLS. In fact approximately 1/3 of all sales are not reported in the MLS. Over the past 10 years, approximately 37% of the units sold and 32% of the sales volume was NOT reported in the Teton County MLS. Therefore, the 2010 MLS volume of $388 million suggests that ACTUAL sales volume was about $510 million.
