The Park City Board of REALTORS® has released annual statistics for Summit and Wasatch Counties. The 2017 year-end summary report indicates the overall real estate market continues to be healthy, steady, and growing at sustainable rates.

The number of single-family home transactions and the median sales price grew at 5% and 14% respectively over the past year. 84% of these sales occurred outside the Park City Limits, as primary home buyers’ demand for the Wasatch Back lifestyle increased. The number of condominium transactions and median sales price grew at 4% and 6% respectively from 2016 to 2017. Condominium sales grew at a slightly faster pace inside the Park City Limits than in other areas in Summit and Wasatch Counties.

You In Park City's Todd Anderson, President of the Park City Board of REALTORS® commented, “These growth rates are highly sustainable. We believe the real estate market in Summit and Wasatch Counties is balanced between buyers and sellers. That being said, the market could always use more inventory.”

Conclusions

At a 40,000-foot level, the Greater Park City Area real estate market looks healthy and steady. However, each micro-market needs to be understood apart from the overall market; simply reviewing the numbers is not suficient to understanding property value. Sales in individual markets can be influenced by a number of factors, including unique outlier sales that can heavily weight the statistics. In addition, amenities, property condition, floorplan, location, inventory, and new construction impact the numbers. The only sure way to fully understand the real estate market in Summit and Wasatch Counties is to contact a You In Park City Realtor®.

The Age of Park City Real Estate

Here’s a reality check… Park City’s housing pool is aging. The majority of our housing is 20+ years old. On top of that, there have been fewer new properties built since 2010 than any decade prior!

However, there is an upside to this dated housing situation. More and more savvy buyers are moving toward the idea of renovating older properties. They can see opportunities available with an “adaptive reuse” strategy – and have the vision to transition older, traditional lodge and log properties into today’s popular mountain-contemporary-modern designs. Park City’s real estate market is holding strong with an annual median appreciation rate of 8.8%. Now might be the right time if you’re considering selling.
