Welcome To Utah

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Sep 20, 2017

Usually our blogs are about Park City, but this week I would like to share a little about Salt Lake City. As one of the nation’s fastest growing areas, Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities are central hubs for business, travel, and recreation. Renowned for “The Greatest Snow on Earth,the Wasatch Front has something for everyone. Bordered on the west by the Great Salt Lake and to the east by the Rocky Mountains, the Salt Lake Valley offers a limitless variety of activities and entertainment.

The city’s surroundings provide a beautiful panorama full of outdoor recreation such as hiking, camping, biking, fishing, boating, rock climbing, world-class skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, and so much more. As for the arts, Salt Lake City is home to performance powerhouses such as the Utah Symphony and Ballet West. The Wasatch Front has no shortage of culture, concerts, sporting events, historical attractions, and festivals. With outstanding restaurants and a thriving nightlife, there is always something to do in Salt Lake City and its surrounding areas.

Today, Salt Lake City offers everything from professional sports to concerts and theater to a lively nightlife scene to many kid-approved attractions. Best of all, the city’s backyard offers limitless year-round activities and recreations. Salt Lake City ranks in the top 10 of numerous lists including livability, safety, health, affordability, business, and employment opportunities. Steady, strong economic growth and stability coupled with innovative entrepreneurship has captured the attention of the Silicon Valley tech industry and has predicted Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas to be the next Tech Mecca as “Silicon Slopes” continues to grow and innovate.

Shifting gears back into the mountains, East Summit County is located below the majestic peaks of the Uintas, the mountain communities of Peoa, Kamas, Oakley, Woodland, Francis, Hoytsville, and Coalville boast stunning views and wild natural beauty. Popular with outdoor enthusiasts and ranchers, these townships offer a wide range of real estate options including farmstead estates, large lots to build your dream home on, and small subdivisons with a quiet neighborhood feel. Just a short distance to Park City and Salt Lake City, these towns have a preserved sense of nature and community without the hustle and bustle of a larger city.

From fishing, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and camping these areas provide a range of outdoor pursuits. In addition to their scenic charm, each town offers its own array of community activities including the Oakley Rodeo, Summit County Fair, outdoor summer concert series, and Kamas’ Fiesta Days. Known as the “Gateway to the Uintas” Kamas, Francis, and Woodland offer pristine mountain living with the Uinta Mountains—and their 880,000 acres of trails, streams, lakes, and mountain terrain—just out your backdoor.

We love Park City, and the Wife and I are here to answer any questions you may have about our local market as well as the surrounding areas of this great state.

Good Food In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Sep 06, 2017

We have always enjoyed the wide variety of food in Park City, everything from Monday night $5 burgers to high-end private yurt dinners. Jenny Wilden recently posted A Foodie's Guide to Historic Park City and we think it is packed full of great links to local restaurants. Historic Main Street is the epicenter of this fun, foodie culture, and whether you’re craving the town’s best avocado toast, a rib-eye steak, or just a handcrafted cocktail, you’ll find it here. Get your buzz on at Pink Elephant Coffee, a locally owned café tucked above Prospect, a hip clothing boutique on Historic Main Street. A block off Main Street, newcomer Harvest specializes in trendy, healthy favorites, like paleo banana bread and smashed avocado toast. For an alternative to coffee, try their steaming Golden Mylk, a fusion of turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, pepper, and coconut milk. Firewood is one of Main Street’s hottest new restaurants—literally. Everything’s cooked on open-flame grills with chef-selected wood like cedar and cherry to enhance the flavors. When you’re looking to save money or feed a crowd, there’s no better place than Davanza’s on Park Avenue. For on-the-go dining, head to Riverhorse Provisions, a grocery café that’s the baby sister of Riverhorse on Main, one of Park City’s oldest and most venerated restaurants. When you’re craving something sweet, visit award-winning American eatery, Handle for Park City’s best desserts. For daytime desires, grab funky-flavored tiny donuts at Peace Love and Little Donuts on Lower Main Street. Twisted Fern is pictured in our blog this week.

Park City has many great non-profits and we wanted to share a little about one of our favorites - KPCW, a volunteer supported organization whose mission is to educate, inform, entertain and provide access to a diverse community with quality local, national and international programming.  As our community radio station, we count on KPCW to provide quality programming and local news that's important to Wasatch Back listeners, including local weather, traffic, trail, and ski reports; city and county government proceedings; and lost and found—which has reunited countless pets with their grateful owners. On August 22nd, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties was proud to support KPCW with a Community Grant Challenge during the Summer Pledge Drive and has raised over $10,000 largely contributed by our philanthropic agents.

For the complete digital online version click here. Data interpretation, judgement and historical context are key elements in making informed decisions, let me know how I can help.

Last week I promised a golf blog, so I am providing a quick snap shot on a few of the private golf communities in the area including: Glenwild, Promontory, Red Ledges, Tuhaye and Victory Ranch.

Glenwild is a Tom Fazio course with 18 holes, yardage of 7,800, par 71, a course rating of 75.7 and has won "# 1 Private Golf" from Golf Digest every year.

Golf Community Market Report

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jul 19, 2017

It is golf season, my favorite time of year, and this week I wanted to share our most recent golf community market report.

The golf courses are calling and many of the courses in town have special rates for locals and Utah residents. Canyons golf is offering $55 rates to Utah residents all season long. Next week I will begin to share the special features of the golf courses in the Park City area. Call me anytime and I will be happy to share my knowledge of each of the local golf courses and I hope to see you on the green.

Looking for something to do this weekend - The Park City Summer Concert Series is back for another summer! Head to the Canyons Village Stage on select Saturdays until September 2nd for free live music on select dates. Free live music starts at 4:00pm with each concert's headlining act taking the stage at 6:00pm. This year, the concert series is now moving to the Canyons Village Stage. Come kick off your sandals and get in the summer groove as these musicians perform a variety of genres including funk, reggae, and folk. The next show is Saturday, July 22nd from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm with VanLadyLove and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors

The Cabriolet will be open until 8:30pm on these concert dates.

Our Favorite Town

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 14, 2017

Our favorite town is no stranger to awards and accolades. So this week we thought we would share a few of the publications that rank Park City among the top cities and towns in American (and even the world). There may not be a perfect place, but if you ask us (and apparently editors and travelers across the globe) Park City is pretty close.

Conde Nast Traveler - #1 Friendliest Cities: Park City is a "friendlier and more casual" mountain town, where even at the height of winter ski season or the Sundance Film Festival in January, "the locals were extremely friendly and welcoming." World & U.S. - #1 Park City, Utah & The Best Small City in the U.S #6 Park City, Utah

An iconic mountain town frequented by ski buffs and Sundance festees, Park City was this year voted one of Traveler’s friendliest cities in the world—and for good reason. Though most popular in the winter, Park City shines in all seasons: For spring, summer, and fall hiking and mountain biking, the city has nearly 400 miles of maintained trails. Mark off time for a stroll (or two) down picturesque Main Street, and don’t miss nearby Utah Olympic Park, which comprises a museum but is still used as an Olympic training facility today.

L.A. Times 17 Destinations for 2017 - #8 Park City is 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. It has an old-fashioned Main Street. And it has the biggest ski resort in the country: Park City Mountain Resort, which combined with Canyons Resort in 2015, setting off changes all over town.

Chef John Murcko’s Firewood Restaurant opened in December at 306 Main St. At 314 Main, visitors can browse landscape photos at David Beavis Gallery. At 509 Main, get caffeine from Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters. At 738 Main, get a sugar fix at Peace, Love & Little Donuts. At 890 Main, taste wine at Old Town Cellars, a private-label winery. (All opened in 2016.)

Trip Advisor Top Destinations on the Rise #2 Only 35 minutes from the SLC Airport, Park City's rugged beauty is complemented by over 100 restaurants and bars, open air concerts, numerous spas and health clubs, plays, independent film screenings, a series of world-class events and festivals, and as many kinds of lodging as there are people.

Travel & Leisure - America’s Favorite Towns #1 Outdoor bliss meets artistic street cred: America’s winning town offers snow, sunshine, and a good chance of celeb-spotting. Readers gave the city near-perfect marks for its weather and for its festivals—thanks in part, no doubt, to winter’s Sundance Film Festival. Since Utah has relaxed its liquor laws over the years, Park City also scored well with readers for wine. Choose from the extensive wine list at Glitretind, at Stein Eriksen Lodge, or the long list of bottles at the new Main Street hotspot Tupelo, whose artisanal menu includes such delights as Rocky Mountain Elk Bolognese.

America’s Favorite Mountain Towns - No. 1: Park City, Utah - When the local mines closed, Park City, Utah, turned its ambitions above ground—to its 7,000 acres of Olympic-level ski terrain—helping it transition into one of the country’s premier resort destinations, and this year’s favorite mountain town. Off the slopes, everyone converges on historic Main Street, flanked by a mix of adventure outfitters, galleries, and restaurants—including Tupelo, chef Matt Harris’s ode to elevated Rocky Mountain cuisine. Sundance Film Festival brings in the A-Listers, who feel at home in the town’s luxe hotels, like Stein Eriksen Lodge, a Norwegian-style chalet.

Sunset Magazine - 2016 Best Adventure Town - Ski towns have long been about much more than a day on the slopes. Park City, Utah, just happens to be more fun than many others; the winner for best adventure town has a gently sloping Main Street lined with shops and farm-driven eats.

The state of Utah is also a great place - For the 10th year in a row, Utah earns the top spot for states with the best economic outlook, followed by Indiana, North Carolina, North Dakota and Tennessee, according to a recent American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) report, Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index. The annual publication is celebrating its 10th edition with the launch of a new website that gives users the ability to compare and contrast economic trends of the last decade, featuring a new tool showing how particular policy adjustments can change the economic outlook ranking of an individual state.

State lawmakers have relied upon Rich States, Poor States as a guide for measuring the economic competitiveness of their states since 2008. The publication is authored by Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, a member of Ronald Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board, Stephen Moore, distinguished visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation, and Jonathan Williams, ALEC Chief Economist and Vice President of the ALEC Center for State Fiscal Reform.

“For an unprecedented ten years, since the very founding of Rich States, Poor States, Utah has reigned as number one in terms of economic outlook. This is largely due to the state’s many responsible fiscal policies, including an efficient and lean state government, a low overall tax burden and the state’s right-to-work status,” said Jonathan Williams. “In addition, the public sector pension reforms of 2010 have undoubtedly benefitted Utah in the rankings. Congratulations to the Utah legislators who consistently show their dedication to protecting hard-earned taxpayer dollars and promoting a strong state economy."

Neighborhoods and Activities

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 06, 2017

Nestled beneath the beautiful slopes of the Wasatch range and just minutes away from Park City’s Main Street and Salt Lake, the communities of Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, and Summit Park offer perfect single family home and condominium options for commuters and outdoor enthusiasts.

With out-the-door access to Flying Dog and other legendary Park City trail systems, these communities offer some of the best recreation in the area. As for amenities, Pinebrook is home to numerous restaurants, yoga studios, and grocery stores, which create a strong sense of community among these adjacent neighborhoods. Jeremy Ranch also offers golf via its private club and manicured full course.

In terms of real estate: Jeremy Ranch is known for spacious single family homes that are bathed in sunlight and feature dramatic views. Pinebrook consists of a wide array of entry, custom and luxury home options that make this neighborhood popular among Millennials. Just up Parley's hill from Pinebrook, Summit Park offers secluded homes encompassed by mountain wilderness and numerous trail systems that award adventurers with stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley.

For anyone looking to be within easy driving distance from Salt Lake and all the recreational options Park City has to offer, be sure to look at Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, and Summit Park real estate.

June marks the beginning of summer in Park City. With the opening of summer resort operations, visitors and locals can make the most of world class downhill biking, chairlift hiking, rides and mini golf at the bases. With our award-winning trail system, blue bird weather, and championship golf options, we are truly an all-season community. Not-to-miss events include the mouth-watering Savor the Summit dinner, when Park City restaurants come together to line Main Street with tables for an evening of communal fine dining that draws the whole town. Also, be sure to get your Oakley Rodeo tickets--one of our favorite events of the year.

Golf Community Sales - Summit and Wasatch counties are popular amongst golfers, and the number of vacant land and single family home sales in our golf communities gives strong evidence of this trend. With over 300 sales in the past twelve months in Glenwild, Promontory, Hideout, Tuhaye, Red Ledges, and Victory Ranch, buyer demand remains strong and will likely continue, especially during the summer months. With a wide array of price points, new build options, and ample community amenities, it's no wonder that many second home buyers are investing in these neighborhoods.

With courses now open, make the most of our local golf options and explore your living options in these highly sought after micro-market areas. Reach out for more information on our local golf communities.

Market Recap & May Events

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 17, 2017

Following up on the last two weeks of blogs the Summit and Wasatch County markets remain varied and complex to read, but stable in terms of positive growth. In Park City limits, when compared with last year's first quarter, there has been only a 1% change in average single family home price, suggesting an overall stabilization of the market in town. However, in key development areas like Canyons Village, there was a doubling in the number sales and a 22% increase in average price, suggesting pockets of intense growth where there is new inventory. Similarly, gated golf communities remain popular, and Red Ledges, Glenwild, Tuhaye, and Promontory all saw an increase in the number of sales and in average price. (Remember the Mini Markets that make up Park City)

New condominium projects continue to boast the greatest buyer activity. With 190 condo sales, Jordanelle was the single most active market segment, closely followed by Canyons Village with 177 sales. These newer developments, which feature modern amenities and a range of prices, continue to resonate with sophisticated buyers. This trend is likely to continue with other new projects like those at Canyons Village and Silver Creek Junction.

In Wasatch County, Heber and Midway are the most active single family home markets with 218 and 109 sales, respectively. With new builds, attractive prices, and stunning views, these towns have seen tremendous real estate growth, which we predict will continue. To better navigate our complex market, reach out for information and options.

It is now golf season in Park City! You've Skied America's largest resort, now golf Utah's newest course. Canyons Golf Opens May 26th as well as Summer in the Mountains. From hiking and biking to the Alpine coaster and Kids Adventure Course, Park City offers family friendly activities all summer long!

MAY EVENTS

It's officially spring on the Wasatch Back, which means two-for-one entrees, Running with Ed, and mountain biking. While May can be a bit quiet, locals can find dining coupons, take tours at Red Butte Gardens, and make the most of uncrowded trails. The Egyptian Theatre has a great line up this month as does the Park City Film Series. Here are some events to check out:

All Month Park City Film Series

May 18-20 Hot Tuna at the Egyptian Theatre

Park City Condominium Market

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 10, 2017

Last week I addressed our Park City market concerning Single Family Homes…this week I will give you some interesting stats on the Park City Condominium market.

Very similar to the single family market, there is no such fact as “The Park City Market”…there are many sub-markets that are composed of pockets or “mini markets”. This is why your agent should speak in terms of these “Mini Markets” vs the “Park City Market” (the numbers referenced below are rounded off).

Concerning Supply, the mini markets are very different around Park City as we compare the first quarter of 2017 to first quarter 2016…

Old Town area inventory is up 26%

Lover Deer Valley is up 10%

Prospector area is down 33%

Kimball Junction area is up 68%

The Canyons is up 5% (a lot of the new construction is not officially on mls)

Overall, there is a 7.4% increase, so you can see again how looking at “mini markets” is what you need to analyze.

Concerning the Number of Sales we will compare the first quarter of last two years…

Old Town is up 8% (134 sales)

Empire Pass is up 51% (15 sales)

Upper Deer Valley is up 11% (57 Sales)

Canyons up 11% (116 sales…mostly new product)

Kimball Junction is down 2% (77 sales)

If you are interested in more Park City market numbers I have detailed stats that I am more than happy to share with you… call or email my anytime. Thank you and have a great week.

  1. Wow, thi? piece of writing ?s ?ood, my sister ?? analyzing suc? t?ings, th?refore I ?m going t? ?et know her.

  2. Great article! That is the type of info that should be shared around the web.

How Is The Park City Market?

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 03, 2017

People always like to ask me... How is the Park City Market? This question comes from both our Buyers and Sellers. This loaded question with no short answer comes down to this... Park City is comprised of many different "micro markets". One area of Park City can be down while another area of Park City is up, and wouldn't you know this can change from quarter to quarter within the same year. Sometimes there are very clear reasons for sudden decreases or increases in our "micro markets" and sometimes not. This my friends is why you need a qualified, knowledgeable, local real estate agent. Let me share some examples of the Park City Market "micro markets" for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Single Family Home Sales - # of Sales this Quarter

Old Town Up 56%

Lower Deer Valley Up 113%

Upper Deer Valley Down 17%

Park Meadows Down 10%

The Canyons Up 60%

Kimball Junction Down 50%

Summit Park Up 150%

Jeremy Ranch Even

Glenwild/Silvercreek Up 233%

Promontory Up 8%

Trailside Down 63%

And why don't you take the Park City area market as a whole... you can see from the percentages above that to talk about the real estate market of Park City as a whole would be somewhat misleading, that being said the Park City area is overall 22% higher for the first quarter than last year this same quarter and interestingly enough Snyderville Basin is also overall 22% higher in closed sales.

Next week we will address the condo market.

  1. Pretty! This was a really wonderful post. Thanks for supplying this information.

  2. Hey there! I've been following your web site for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Porter Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic work!

Ski Season To Bike Season

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 27, 2017

Spring is here and although we saw upwards of six inches of snow yesterday it is time to start thinking about all the amazing Spring/Summer activities around Park City, like bike riding. But, lets recap on an amazing winter of snow. Ski Utah posted 2016-17 Season Wrap Up: Utah’s Snowiest Winter in Half a Decade - December, January, and February were all very snowy months that featured a seemingly endless stream of powder days. It wasn’t until March that we returned to reality. High pressure finally took control and we saw 3 weeks of drier weather and warmer temperatures. March probably killed our chances of making a run at the seasonal record books, but even so, the end of season snowpack numbers are impressive statewide. It is without question, the best winter we’ve had since 2010-11. This article is complete with charts and the breakdown of snowfall at each of the ski resorts.

Fodor's Travel has a new article about Park City and writes How to Have the Best Weekend in Park City, Utah’s Most Rebellious Town. In an otherwise conservative state, anything goes in Park City, Utah. Discovery of precious metals in the 19th century, namely silver, brought miners and non-Mormons over to the region and incited an air of rebellion that the Utah town, though quaint, still hasn’t been able to completely shake. The charming Metropolitan-esque bubble surrounded by the Wasatch mountain range is a snowy paradise in winter; in summer dining extends to outdoor patios while locals and tourists gather on a spirited Main Street. The article shares their take on where to stay, the latest outdoor adventures, and where to shop, eat & drink.

As we pull our bikes out for tune-ups and get ready to hit the trails Cycling Utah has posted a great article - Mountain Bikers and the Golden Rule. Lora Smith shares her thoughts on promoting bike etiquette as she is the Resource Manager for the Mountain Trails Foundation at mountaintrails.org, one of the largest non-motorized trail advocacy groups in the west. This article shares a lot of great ideas for safety on the trails and wraps with “As a Cyclist I. . .

• Commit to following the Golden Rule – do unto others as you would have done unto you;

• Recognize that my behavior as an individual has a profound effect on the reputation of the entire cycling community;

• Recognize that my behavior as an individual has an effect on the continued access to and high-quality of the trails I ride;

• Commit to taking the high road in the face of adversity;

• Will act as an Ambassador for the trails and the outdoor community as a whole;

• Commit to making this world a better place to ride.

Happy Riding - Ramon (with my daughter and youngest grandson)

A Record Season

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 05, 2017

BHHS April 2017RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON - 2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever.

Current Market Conditions

2270254.largeThis week we wanted to share some great information about the Utah Market provided by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties.

WE ARE IN THE BEST STATE FOR BUSINESS

The perennial winner of Forbes' annual Best State for Business award, Utah remains competitively positioned to support continued real estate growth. With an abundance of technology, health care, and creative businesses planting roots in Utah, our state unemployment rate is among the lowest in the country at just 4%. Due to the state's unprecedented economic evolution, real estate sales are likely to remain robust in northern Utah.

 

Utah GrowthJOB GROWTH MEANS HOUSING GROWTH

Utah’s job growth rate is 3 to 4 times higher than the domestic average due to the relocation and expansion of companies who favor a highly-educated work force and economic incentives. In real estate, this continues to produce a steady stream of qualified buyers enticed by Utah’s affordable home pricing and unparalleled lifestyle. With favorable business conditions, the trends of relocation and increased housing demand should continue.

 

Utah PricingPRICES AND DEMAND ARE GRADUALLY RISING

Since 2011, we've seen a 48% increase in median single family home prices. The market has completely recovered from the recession and shows no signs of slowing. While median and average prices continue to climb, courtesy of new development and property renovation, there are still market pockets ideal for entry-level buyers.

 

Utah Days on MarketDEMAND IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH

With most homes selling within two weeks in Salt Lake County, there's clear evidence of healthy homeowner demand. Historically low inventory has produced a market where buyers outnumber properties. Pre-qualified buyers, who can move quickly into the market, have an advantage. Those guided by Utah Properties experts are alerted to properties as soon as they hit the market.

 

Utah ProjectionsKEY TAKEAWAYS

Overall, the real estate sector looks bullish. Utah's strong economic performance and job growth coupled with moderately rising interest rates have created a climate of urgency. To get a more detailed profile of your local market, reach out.

The 2016 Market Reprot

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Feb 01, 2017

Untitled

The 2016 Market Report Year End is full of great information about Park City. This comprehensive year end market report provides an overview of both Summit and Wasatch County real estate. The statistics provided in this report are based upon the Park City Board of Realtors MLS data for the period of January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.

Park City proper’s long standing residential neighborhoods have lower inventory levels, and as a result, have experienced a slight decrease in number of sales. Neighborhoods just outside city limits like Silver Springs, Redstone, and Old Ranch Road, have shown increasing prices with constrained inventory. Similarly, in response to inventory and pricing, many Millennials seem to be looking to the Canyons, Jordanelle, and Wasatch County areas for first time homes.

The number of sales of single family homes in our city limits and Snyderville Basin saw a very gradual increase from 2015, and several areas saw a decrease in properties sold. However, average prices are up. There are pockets of high activity in areas like Summit Park. East Summit and Wasatch counties continue to bring tremendous buyer interest. Here are the Snyderville Basin Stats:

Untitled2
 

 

 

The market as a whole has shown measured improvement that is slightly more robust than average U.S. trends in home price and sales volume. We are now seeing home prices and sales numbers that are slightly above those before the recession. In summary, our market looks healthy and shows signs of steady growth.

Did you know that in Park City we have 8,000 acres of open space and 400 miles of trails! There are also 1.8 million season skier days with an average snow fall of 350 inches and an average Winter temperature of 22° to 33°. Park City's population is 8,200 people and Summit County as a whole is roughly 38,500 people.

If you have any questions about the Park City real estate market please let me know and I am happy to answer any questions. Here is the The Full 2016 Market Report Year End for your review. Have a great week.

The Berkshire Hathaway Prediction for 2017 - We expect additional new developments to come to market in 2017 in the Jordanelle, Heber, and Canyons areas. Inventory will remain low in many areas, especially in Park City proper residential neighborhoods. Finally, while mortgage rates will continue to rise mildly, we do not see this trend influencing buyer demand significantly.

Location, Location, Location

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Oct 12, 2016

IMG_5017

Location is important when buying or selling your home and the good news is that Park City ticks most boxes for "location, location, location". Recent studies direct to buy in the best location you can and identify new factors for determining location-worthiness. One study even shares that buying a home with a Starbucks nearby is a positive.

The Washington Post posted that homeowners saw an increase in home value in 2015 by being close to a Target store, good thing for us we have fantastic ski resorts and great shopping close by. As mentioned above being close to a Starbucks is good news too, "Between 1997 and 2014, homes within walking distance, or one-quarter mile, of a Starbucks appreciated 96 percent," said Forbes. "Compared to the national average for the same time period, 65 percent, it seems having a barista close by is a smart real estate move."

We all know you can change your home by adding on, updating, and renovating down to the last square foot, but what you can't change is where it's located. "A home is an investment - and the best investments have the most room for improvement," said Realtor.com. "Ideally, you'll be adding to the home during your ownership, building equity in hopes of a payoff when you (eventually) sell. Brendon DeSimone, author of "Next Generation Real Estate," stated.

Forbes offered a few more tips that they feel add value and we agree:

  • Accessiblity adds value, with "proximity to public transportation." Park City has great free public transportation.
  • Hot hoods border it - Park City is a great place to live according to Money magazine and is surrounding by amazing communities.
  • It has an Art Scene - Park City has many galleries, an Art Festival, art studios, theaters, Sundance, and the list goes on and on.
  • It Has Historic Architecture - Our historic downtown and the Park City museum are hot attractions.
  • Renovations are being made - "One of the most obvious signs of a turnaround neighborhood is homes that are in the process of renovation. Drive around and see if you spot construction trucks and dumpsters—then you know there's activity in the air."
Well, that is about it for this week and we will have information on Halloween in Park City in the next blog. And, remember Opening Day is only 37 days away at Park City Mountain Resort and in 51 days at Deer Valley as our first snow in town was on September 23rd - it’s time to dust off your skis and boards and get them ready for winter.

Park City in October

IMG_7587In Park City, the mentality is ‘work hard, play hard.’ Here, work-life balance isn’t a goal--it’s a given.

Most Parkites engage in some version of the following scenario: bike up a mountain before heading in for a morning product development meeting, get in a gym session at lunch, wrap-up with some email crunching, and get onto the final fun activity of the day. Far from having just a resort economy, Park City is now home to a diverse business ecosystem that includes powerhouse companies like Skullcandy, Backcountry.com, AvaTech, SnoCru, and others.

The ‘Silicon Slopes’ effect is very much underway in Park City, as well as Salt Lake. It's an exciting time to witness startup growth in our mountain town utopia.

To help grow PC's tech scene, the Park City Angels, a venture capital club, has invested in numerous startups that have matured into successful companies. Whether you are an ambitious millennial, seasoned exec, or keen investor, the local business landscape has a niche with your name one it.

Planning your winter vacation to PC? Here are all your options.

Welcome to SLC

Named the one of the strongest performing cities in America by Forbes Magazine, Salt Lake City is a central hub for business, travel, and recreation. This city is one of the only places you can play golf in the morning, work for a cutting edge start up during the day, then go ski touring in the evening. With its out-the-door access to world class ski resorts, wilderness, and national parks, Salt Lake City offers a work-life balance you can't find anywhere else.

In addition to its outdoor lifestyle offerings and thriving economy, the city has a vibrant urban culture that includes performing arts powerhouses like the Utah Symphony and Ballet West, innumerable award-winning restaurants, and an ever-growing art scene. In terms of intellectual stimulation, the University of Utah is renowned for its medical school, MBA program, research facilities and Honor’s Program. The University has fostered more bio-med and tech start-ups than any school in the nation, including MIT.

With the Silicon Valley Slopes effect in full sway, Salt Lake and its surrounding areas are great places to live and buy property. From charming bungalows, mid-century modern homes, and contemporary condos, there are options for every buyer.
