Market Absorption is Relative to Median Pricing

In greater Park City, we continue to feel the effects of low inventory coupled with dated inventory. The time on market against the median price within category type clearly reflects that those properties priced at or below the median are absorbed at a significantly higher pace. This is something to keep in mind if you are considering selling your property.


Single Family Homes The trend of single family home buyers choosing to purchase in the Snyderville Basin and beyond, due to higher perceived value, continued in the second quarter. In Park City Proper (zip code 84060), inventory has remained stable over the past year, with a 20% increase in median price, which rose from $1,850,000 to $1,900,000 at the end of the first quarter within the city limits.


Snyderville Basin - Activity remained strong, with almost double the number of sales as within Park City Proper. The median price is now just under a million at $970,000.

Jordanelle – Supply in this area has been limited due to timing of completion of construction in several communities; as a result there was a 2.6% drop in the number of closed transactions, yet the median price rose almost 28% to $1.52 million. The bulk of the transactions occurred at Victory Ranch.

Heber Valley – 203 homes have been sold year-to-date in Heber/Daniel resulting in a slight increase in the median price, which is now $360,000. Midway’s median price was the highest in the Heber Valley, rising to $469,000.

The most robust land sales continue to occur at Promontory and in the Jordanelle area. Homesite sales at Promontory increased 32% with a total of 79 lot sales. The median there rose 12% to $375,000. The Jordanelle area witnessed the strongest increase, with 100 sales (up 15%) and a significant 24% increase in the median price to $397,500, with sales at Victory Ranch adding significantly to this increase.



At mid-year, we continued to see strong price increases in certain neighborhoods and leveling off in others, largely tied to inventory and age of housing stock. Our market continues to expand as buyers continue to show a willingness to expand their horizons in search of higher perceived value. Perhaps the continued focus on mass transit enhancements is positively impacting second homes buyers’ willingness to choose locations a bit farther from the chair lifts.
