Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty Leads the Way…

The Teton County, Wyoming real estate market experienced an increase in buyer demand during the first quarter of 2010 and Jackson Hole Sotheby’s continues to lead the way with a 70% market share as reported by Teton County MLS. 

In May 2010, sales volume rose 166% over last year and units sold doubled.  Teton County MLS reported elevn sales over $1 million in May, verse 7 in April and 4 in May.  The interest above $1 million has been encouraging and when you compare this years sales (40) over $1 million verse only (19) last year.

The sales team at Jackson Hole Sotheby’s continues to dominate the market.  Christy and I appreciate working with such a great team because it offers us so much insight.  When you work with the best agents in Jackson you are bound to learn a thing or two.  We also have the opportunity to hear about new listings not yet in the MLS or we are able to “sell” or educate an agent on a property we have listed if we hear they have a buyer looking for something in particular.  It is just a great resourse.  To give you some data to support this representation we just have to look the sales in May.  During the month of May 2010, 73% of the properties that sold in Teton Countywere liste with Jackson Hole Sothebys and our Sotheby’s team sold 55% of all properties that closed in May as reported by Teton County MLS. 

Pretty great numbers for our agents and we are proud to be part of the team.  The Gillespie Team has been contibuting to these numbers during 2010.  We have been involved in 10 transactions for 2010 and in May we sold 5 listings!

Jackson Hole Market Update – Feb. 20, 2008 – Active Listings and Inventory

Sotheby’s International Realty of Jackson Hole has been busy compiling statistics from the past year (2007) and in next series of blog updates I will be taking some of that information and sharing it with you.  Leonard Klieman of the Jackson Hole Sotheby’s office has done an incredible job of analyzing Teton County Multiple Listing Service information along with comparing and contrasting data received from Teton County, Wyoming County Assessors Office.

As of January 2008 there were 404 current listings in the Teton County MLS.  Due to a extreme slow down in current pending activity this gives Jackson a 20 month supply of inventory.  (Months of Inventory = Active Listings / Unit Sales).  In January 2008 we saw the first increase in active listings for the first time in 3 years.  In 2006 there were 386 active listings and in 2007 there were 364 active listings at this time.  The biggest change in the data however is that pending transactions are trending down instead of up when comparing the past few years.  This trend started in November of ’07.

Properties listed for less that $3 million:  296.  Active listings are up 11.7% vs. last year and is up in January vs. December for the first time in 3 years.

Properties listed greater that $3 million:  116.  Active listings are up 9.4% vs. last year.

Teton Valley, Idaho – – Residential and Building Sites — 1,601!!!  January 2008 active listings are 46% higher than in Jan – 07 and 153% higher than in Jan – 06.  Rising inventory coupled with falling unit sales is contributing to the jump in months of inventory.  You ask what the months of inventory for Teton Valley, Idaho is….5 years!
