Park City Real Estate - Market Update – August 2013

By The ParkCityInvestor Team
Aug 27, 2013

The second quarter of 2013 was the largest and strongest quarter of Park City Real Estate sales in more than 5 years. With both the number of sales and the median sales price up from last year we are very optimistic and excited for buyers to find great opportunities, and prices have come back to allow new sellers the opportunity to sell again.

We have seen a total of 991 sales this first half of 2013 which shows a 19% increase over the same time period in 2012. Total sales dollar volume is also up 19% over last year, reaching over $698 million to date. In fact, this first half of 2013 had the highest numbers of sales AND the highest total dollar volume since 2007.


Inventory is still about 9% less than what we have seen in previous years but it is slowly increasing. We currently see an absorption rate (the average time a listing remains on the market) for single family homes, condominiums, and vacant land of 5.7 months. That is a drastic reduction from the high point of just under 50 months set in April of 2009.

Distressed Sales

The number on foreclosures and short sales continue to decline and only make up about 5% of all sold properties in the second quarter of 2013, compared to 17% of all sales in 2012 and about 33% in 2011.

Single Family Homes

Good News! The median sales price in the Greater Park City real estate market is up 10% from last year. Within the Park City limits the median home price is up 12% to about $1,245,000. We also experienced a 16% increase in the number of sales within the Park City limits. Of course, these values vary slightly from neighborhood to neighborhood. For example, while sales are up in Silver Springs, sales are down on Old Ranch Road. On the other hand, median sales price in Silver Springs only increased by 6% while it increased by 62% in Old Ranch Road.


The Greater Park City condo market is up 12% in terms of sales and 6% in regards to sales price. The median sales price of condominiums in the Park City Limits, for the second quarter, is down slightly to $572,000 compared to $605,000 in 2012. Again, this varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Sales are up 52% in the Jordanelle area and 47% in Old Town while sales are down 10% in Lower Deer Valley. Median sales price in the Jordanelle area is up 8% and 34% in Old Town.

Vacant Land

In the Greater Park City real estate area, the median sales price for land is down 20%. Some areas like Synderville or Jordanelle are up in sales but only due to a decrease in median sales price. However, vacant land sales climbed 39% in the Snyderville Basin and spiked upward 138% in the Jordanelle Area compared to 2012! In the Park City Limits, vacant land sales followed the same trend as single family homes with an increase in the number of sales of 26% compared to the same time period last year and a moderate increase in median price of 12%, reaching $525,000.

Vail takes over Lease at Canyons Resort!

By The ParkCityInvestor Team
Jun 01, 2013

This could be a great benefit for Park City Real Estate and everyone who loves to ski here! Vail Resorts has reached an agreement with Talisker to lease Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah and assumed all resort operations while Talisker will retain the development rights of the resort. Vail was given a lease term of 50 years with an option of six 50-year renewals. It may also have the possibility to lease Park City Mountain Resort in case the litigation between PCMR and Talisker is decided in Taliskers favor.

Although Talisker has made $75 million in mountainside improvements since it acquired the Canyons in 2007, more could be on the way. But Vail is in the early stages of evaluating and crafting a plan for the resort, and many things are yet to be determined. Overall, this is a great opportunity for the Canyons. Vail is a leader in the mountain resort industry and will hopefully replicate its success here in Park City.

This next season Canyons will offer the Epic Pass which is a multi-resort pass sold by Vail Resorts. This season pass allows people to ski/ride Canyons on an unlimited and unrestricted basis as well as other resorts such as Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone in Colorado and the Lake Tahoe-region resorts of Northstar, Heavenly and Kirkwood. Current price for a season pass is $689.

The Ski Link gondola to connect Solitude and Canyons still needs to be researched and discussed by Vail.

House Hunters interested in Park City Real Estate Buyers!

By The ParkCityInvestor Team
Feb 28, 2013

HGTV House Hunters UtahThe producers of HGTV's House Hunters want to do a show in Park City, Utah. As a Park City Real Estate expert they have approached me to find a client who is purchasing a home or condo in the Park City area and who is interested to be on the show.

If you want to be on the show the House Hunters crew will film you, the buyer, in your current home and ask you what you’re looking for, why you want to move, etc.  After that, they’ll film us looking at a total of three different homes and then the episode ends with you moving into your new home.  It takes a few days of filming, but you get to be on national TV and have some fun (and you get paid!).

The show is looking for a couple (family, newly weds, etc), so if you’re looking to purchase a home or condo and want to be on the show, give me a call.  Click here to watch an episode of House Hunters.  And if you’re looking to buy a house and don’t want to be on TV, I can still help you.

Deer Valley Plans Gondola to Main Street!

By The ParkCityInvestor Team
Oct 01, 2012

Deer Valley is in the talks of adding a new lift to connect the resort with Main Street. The City and Deer Valley are currently working on possible locations for the terminals. The City is considering the paid parking lot next to the Wasatch Brew Pub, at the top of Main Street as a close contender. Deer Valley is considering Silver Lake as a possible terminal to connect to Main Street.

Formal decisions have not been made and terminals are not yet finalized. Adding another lift to Main Street would make Park City the only Ski town in North America with downtown links to two mountain resorts. Deer Valley has said the earliest a gondola could open, if one is pursued, is the 2014-2015 ski season.
