What happened in June?
Real estate sales in Jackson Hole actually dipped in June, down to 36 transactions (after 41 sales occurred in May). Sales volume also dropped, totaling roughly $50 million in June (down from $59 million in May). Otherwise, the start of the busy summer selling season (May and June) were quite similar, with an average sales price hovering right around $1.4 million and a median sales price just under $900,000. The average days on market and sale price ratio were also identical between May and June, with properties selling, on average, at 96% of their listing price in just under 180 days. However, what made June unique was that nearly 1/3 of the closed sales occurred at or ABOVE their listing price, illustrating the continued competitiveness of the Jackson market. While the majority of sales in June occurred in the $1-3 million range, there were 10 sales under $500,000, including five condos in the Virginian Village and Ponderosa Village developments, seemingly a hot segment right now with many of these condos selling at or above the listing prices. Two-thirds of all sales in June were for single family homes, an increase from a trend seen over the last few months.
