July NEWSLETTER

Looking back on the first 2 quarters of sales activity in Jackson Hole we see that there was not a lot of activity. Again – another record low quarter but we have bounced back from the awful 1st Quarter of 2009 where we only had 17 sales. During the 2nd Quarter we witnessed 38 transactions, more than doubling the 1st Quarter results. 22 sales occurred below $1,000,000 and 16 sales occurred above $1,000,000. Of the higher priced properties the highest priced property to sell was listed at $5,625,000 but there was substantial negotiation given. Of the total 38 transactions 4 of them were fractional resort condos and 8 properties did not disclose the closing price.

For current activity, Christy and I have witnessed a surge in activity. The market is not on fire by any means but again we are starting to see some activity that indicates the market has some life. The most interesting aspect of the current activity has been the variety of properties going under contract.

There are currently 16 “Under Contract” residential properties which does NOT include pre construction projects (Terra, Pine Glades, 199 Pearl) or vacant land. There are 8 properties under $1,000,000 and 8 properties over $1,000,000. There are only 3 condos verse 13 single family homes. In the past week, the most exciting activity we witnessed was a property north of town listed for $5,150,000 go under contract (both sides of the transaction are being represented by Sotheby’s International Realty – Jackson Hole). There are currently 4 properties under contract listed for more than $4.8 million. There are 5 under contract vacant land parcels.

As for Active Listings….there are 571 Residential Properties for sale in Jackson Hole and 214 Vacant Land Parcels for sale in Jackson Hole!
