Teton Pines and The Aspen’s Jackson Hole Real Estate Update – December 10, 2010

In today’s update we will explain the Teton Pines and Aspen’s locations for 2010. Both locations allow for short term rentals and are within the resort district. The location being on the Moose-Wilson makes it convenient for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. The Teton Pines offers a “resort” golf course, year round tennis, a summer pool and year round dining and bar. In the winter there is a wonderful Nordic center.

Teton Pines had a good year for real estate transactions. There were a total of 9 single family homes sales ranging from $950,000 for the desired Teton Pines Garden Homes to a high sale of $7,800,000 for a 7,300 sq. ft. estate home. The once popular Teton Pines Town Home on the other hand did not see a lot of activity. There are only 2 on the market but to see a year where no townhomes sold is a rarity. With the sale of a Garden Home below $1 million there is considerable price pressure on the townhomes. There are currently 22 active listings in Teton Pines. This is a great amount of inventory for buyers to choose from. We are predicting a strong sales season in Teton Pines.

The Aspens is located just north of Teton Pines and offers a mix of condos, townhomes and single family homes. Lake Creek carves its way through the neighborhood creating a very peaceful environment. The Aspens is frequented by moose throughout the seasons. Since January 1, 2010 there have been a total of 14 sales ranging from a low of $186,000 for a 760 sq. ft condo (Bank Sale) to a high of $1,293,700 for a wonderful single family log home (Gillespie Real Estate Team Listing). There are 2 current pending transactions – both below $500,000. As for Active inventory in the Aspen’s….there’s a lot of it. 23 listings – 13 condos (1, 2, 3 bedrooms), 6 townhomes (all located in the Pond’s and Cove) and 4 single family homes. The 6 townhomes in the Cove and Pond’s is an eye opener. The least expensive is $799,000 and the most expensive is $1,197,500. Hopefully there are a few buyers this winter and in 2011. Unfortunately I believe that the sellers are not quite realistic as to the current market.

With all the new snow and the best early ski season we have seen in years we are anticipating a very strong Holiday Season. Some of this visitor traffic should translate to an increase of real estate sales.
