Monthly Market Update for April 2016

Jackson Hole, WY

What Sold in Mar 2016? 

  • 50% :: Percentage of single family home sales (another increase)
  • 37.5% :: Percentage of condo/townhome sales (similar to last month)
  • 12.5% :: Percentage of Land Sales (down from last February)
  • 58% :: Percentage of residential properties selling for over $1 million (huge jump from last month)
  • 46% :: Percentage of residential properties selling for under $1 million (down from last month)
  • 8% :: Percentage of residential properties selling for under $500,000 (lowest % in 3+ years!)

What it means: Single family home sales increased again in March, representing 1/2 of all sales in Teton County. Condo and townhome sales remained consistent after a surge in February. Land Sales dropped slightly in March, probably a result of low winter inventory levels. After starting the year out strong, property sales under $500,000 hit another new low, representing only 8% of all sales in March. This is the first time sales in this segment have dipped below 10% in the past 3 years (since the start of compiling statistics for this report in 2013). We should expect to continue to see a low number of sales in this price point until more entry level inventory hits the market. (Currently there are only 22 full ownership options available in Teton County priced under $500,000.) Conversely, sales above $1 million increased significantly in March, representing nearly 60% of all sales. There were several high end sales in March including a 6,300 sq foot home in Spring Creek Ranch, a Granite Ridge home site in Teton Village and the sale of a 105 acre portion of the large Vandewater Ranch located on the Village Road, which included 3 separately deeded parcels and had both Fish Creek and Flat Creek frontage (pictured below).





Parcel 2 of Vandewater Ranch sold in March (listed for $14.2 million by JHREA)
