Christy and Garth Gillespie, the Jackson Hole Experts at Sotheby’s International Realty, have just updated our Top Picks for April 23, 2009. Just about every 2 weeks we take a look at the Jackson Hole real estate market and look for the current “deals” in the market. We also review the current situation with pending transactions, closed transactions and noteable price reductions.
This week we note that there were 34 price corrections in the past 2 weeks. For Christy and I this is a good signal that sellers are becoming motivated to jump start the market. For the past 4 months the Jackson Hole real estate market has been painfully slow. We have credited alot of this “non-action” on the fact that sellers have been sitting back and waiting for the buyers to arrive. Well, here at Sotheby’s International Realty – Jackson Hole Brokerage, we have seen our fair share of buyers but very little contract activity. The economy has shown signs of stabilization or at least of bottoming and the result has been a slight increase in buyer activity and inquiries. The federal government has been helping by putting pressure on mortgage rates (lowering) and offering incentives for first time home buyers. To support this thinking we have seen 7 new pending transactions from all over the market. They include 4 single family homes ranging from $599,000 to $895,000, 1 Aspen’s home and a townhome at Teton Village priced at $1,795,000. Congrats and good luck to all the involved Jackson Hole real estate agents.
