Park City Condominium Market

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.

Second Quarter Park City Market Update

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jul 27, 2016


The total sum of all sold transactions in Park City from the first six months of 2016 suggests steady, but measured growth. The total volume of sales, roughly $800,200,000, is up 12% from the same time last year. This increase in sales volume can be attributed to a 20% increase in Single Family homes during the first six months of this calendar year.


Sales volume is up: The number of closed properties in Park City showed a recovery from a slight downturn in the first quarter of this calendar year. Looking year-over-year, closed sales have remained fairly flat the last four years with the number of closed transactions at the second quarter benchmark remaining right around 400.

Sales are steady and have been for the last four years: Listing inventory in Park City, while still a bit constrained, has remained level for the last 12 months. There are currently 1,186 listings as of July 1 of 2016 compared to 1,170 from the same time last year, suggesting a stabilized inventory level.

Listing inventory has remained steady at around 1,000 active listings for the past 2 years: The current absorption rate, which is the rate at which available homes are sold in a specific market during a time period, suggests a much higher demand for anything under $660,000 for condos and anything under $1.6 million for family homes. Condos under $660,000 have an absorption rate of 4.6 months; whereas, condos over $660,000 have an absorption rate of 15.4 months. As the absorption rate is calculated by looking at the ration between available homes and monthly sales, these indicators suggest the importance of accurately pricing with the help of a seasoned professional. Overall, the absorption rate is gradually decreasing.

The absorption rate is decreasing, suggesting the importance of accurate pricing and strong buyer demand at the right price point: Prices are increasing both in and around Park City at a steady clip. Since January of 2012, the median price of single family homes in Park City has increased at an average of 7.2% per calendar year. The rolling median is up 12% from 2015, with the average price of single family homes increasing at a rate of 12.8%, suggesting a bullish local market. Prices are increasing, but a gradual rate.

The Condominium Market is also doing well and here are some tips to help you prepare your condo for the Park City market.

Decide when to sell your condo - time of year, current competition in your building and similar buildings, your personal goals and the state of the overall real estate market will affect the sale of your condo.

Prepare your condo for sale - declutter, stage every room for optimal use, and clean every inch. Optimize your storage by decluttering parking space(s) and lockers too.

Pricing your condo - important factors include views, ceiling height, layout, location in the building and the size of the condo. Supply & Demand in your building and similar buildings will affect price as well as recent renovations, maintenance fees, developer upgrades, parking, outdoor space, amenities, reputation of building and the ratio of renters to owners.

Marketing - your agent will market your condo with high resolution photos, brochures, flyers, videos, 3D tours, host open houses and be at every showing.

Park City Condominium and Vacant Land Stats

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Aug 05, 2015


Here are the Stats for Condominium and Vacant Land for the first six months of 2015

Condominium Sales:  There continued to be a high proportion of condominium sales. The number of sales for the entire market area at quarter end was 9% higher than the previous twelve months, with a 14% overall increase in median sales price.

Though there were fewer sales in Old Town than the previous four quarters, the median sales price increased to $445,000 – up 21%. By neighborhood, Prospector had the highest jump in number of sales, also with a median sales price increase reaching $132,000. Lower Deer Valley experienced market absorption in the condo sector with more than double the number of sales along with a 15% median sales price increase to $735,000. “After a prolonged period of limited demand and soft pricing, Lower Deer Valley condominiums are showing good signs of recovery.  As locations closer to the ski resorts become limited due to inventory issues, buyers are turning to older product in Lower Deer Valley for value,” per our incoming Board President Rick Shand.

Similar to the single family home market, the number of condo sales in Snyderville Basin increased steadily in quantity sold, dollar volume, and median sales price. Year-over-year, quantity sold was up by 21% in the Basin with a 13% price increase to $380,000. In Kimball Junction the median sales price increased slightly to $245,000. The Canyons area, with its wide-ranging property types, was up 41% in the number of sales over the previous four quarters with a median sales price of $389,000. Jeremy Ranch showed an increase of activity with 58% more sales than the previous four quarters and a price increase to $535,000. With new construction continuing in the Jordanelle area, both the number of sales and the median sales price of $439,000 were slightly higher than the four quarters of the previous year.

Vacant Land Sales:  The number of Vacant Land sales for the entire market area was slightly higher than the previous four quarters and lot prices increased 10% in median sales price. Lower Deer Valley was up in both quantity sold and median sales price ($523,000). Lots in Old Town ($562,000) and Park Meadows ($858,000) increased in median sales price from what they were the previous year. In the Snyderville Basin, neighborhoods with price increases were Trailside Park ($317,500), Glenwild/Silver Creek ($400,000), Promontory ($312,500), and Pinebrook ($190,000). The Jordanelle area continued to grow, with lot sales up 21% and a median sales price of $208,000. The Heber Valley saw a similar quantity sold compared to the previous four quarters with a 5% price increase reaching $195,000.

Looking Ahead:  We appear to be in a relatively stable market with short sales and foreclosures at pre-recession levels. The number of days a property remains on the market has been consistently low over the past few years, as well as, the number of active listings on the market at any one time. Low inventory has been a consistent factor in our market area since the third quarter of 2012, but as of July 1, inventory was the highest it has been in a year. The varying property types and desirability of certain neighborhoods over others make the Greater Park City area a highly segmented and complex market of submarkets.

More than ever, buyers and sellers are wise to enlist the services of a local REALTOR®. So please contact me if you are interested in more information about any segment of our market. It will be my pleasure to assist you with your real estate needs.
