2007 was a record year for the Jackson Hole real estate market, and even better one for Sotheby’s International Realty Jackson Hole Brokerage, which increased its local market share to 61.8% based on its sales volume contrasted against Teton County total sales as reported by the Teton County Assessor’s office.
Looking at the market as a whole, the total dollar volume of sales reported through the Teton Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2007 rose 9.1% over 2006. Even in the fourth quarter, a rocky period for the national real estate market, sale volume was up 5.6% over the same period in 2006. Sotheby’s sales associates outpaced their competitors for the year, boosting the MLS sales volume in 2007 by 12.2%. Based on the Teton County Assessor’s numbers, which include both MLS and non-MLS transactions, Sotheby’s associates handled 61.8% of the $1.055 billion real estate sales volume in the Jackson Hole region. The company’s average market share for the past five years is now 58.2%.
As the result of agent’s efforts and enhanced support they receive, listings with Sotheby’s International Realty in 2007 resulted in an in-house sale nearly 60% of the time. This was more than 50% better than the company’s nearest competitor – Real Estate of Jackson Hole. Sotheby’s agents do 88% more transaction sides per agent and 83% more dollar volume than their closest competitor.
