What it means: New listing activity continued to increase as we approach the busy summer selling season. Fifty-four new properties (including both residential properties & building sites) hit the Teton County real estate market in April. After several months of lagging or matching the inventory levels seen in 2014 & 2015, April saw more new residential listings than in the previous years (see chart below). New listings in April continued to outpace sluggish sales levels, this time at a rate of 2.5 to 1. In April, there were 10 new condo/townhome listings under $750,000, lower than last month’s 17 new listings in this price range, but nonetheless adding much needed inventory to the entry level market. By March 10th, 4 of these new listings were already under contract, illustrating the continued high demand for properties in this price point. At the other end of the spectrum, 6 single family homes hit the market priced in excess of $2 million including homes in Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis, Teton Pines, Game Creek and an 8,300 sq foot home in Town overlooking the Elk Refuge (listed for $4.9m). The middle of the market saw quite a bit of new listing activity as 11 new single family home listings priced between $500,000 – $1,000,000 hit the market, including homes in Rafter J, Cottonwood Park, East Jackson, and a ranch style home on 5 acres south of Jackson (pictured below). Nearly a dozen new lot listings were added to the inventory in April including 4 building sites in Saddle Butte, located just north of downtown, ranging from $788,000-$1,995,000.
Notable new listings in April include:
- 3 bdrm condo at Snow King with short term rental income – $545,000
- 3 bdrm remodeled townhome (with garage) at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort – $1,275,000
