2019: November Market Report

What happened in November?

What Sold

Real Estate sales dropped 31% from October recording only 40 sales in November. While down from the past few months, November's sales were in line with levels seen in May/June 2019. Overall sales volume was also down in November, falling short of $80 million and dropping below $100 million for the first time in 4 months. The average sale price inched up to just under $2 million, however the median sales price has stayed steady around $1.1 million for the third month in a row. While properties are selling at a similar amount of time (150+/- days in 3 of the last 4 months), they were selling at more of a discount to list price in November. Last month, properties sold on average at 95% of their listing price with only 3 properties selling at or above list price. Note that in October, 15 properties sold at or above list price (representing 25% of all sales). Townhome and condo sales increased significantly, representing nearly 50% of all sales in November - a strong showing considering this segment represented 36%-39% of all sales over the past few months. Usually accounting for 43-52% of sales, transactions in the $1-3 million range dropped significantly in November with only 11 transactions representing 28% of all sales. The majority (40%) of November sales were in the $500,000 - $1,000,000 price point. On the other end of the spectrum, property sales in the high-end saw an uptick with 10 sales over $3 million, accounting for 1 out of every 4 sales in November.

New Listings

New listings continued to decline as we enter the winter season in Jackson Hole. Only 26 properties came to market in November, roughly one-quarter of new monthly inventory levels seen in the busy spring / summer listing season. Overall dollar volume of November's listings was $45 million, also a far cry from monthly levels of $200-400 million seen in the spring and summer of this year. While November is historically a slow month for new listings, this November appears to be even slower than last year, when 31 properties came on totaling $64 million. After peaking at $3.4 million in October, the average listing price was cut in half, dropping to $1.7 million in November. The median listing price also declined, dipping to $1.125 million. Interestingly, November was one of the few months where the median LIST price was in line with the median SALES price, as inventory that sold in the month was being replaced with inventory of a similar price point (on average). The majority of November new listings were split between the $500,000- $1,000,000 and the $1-3 million price segments, together accounting for 80% of all new November listings. Five high end listings hit the market in November including two homes in Teton Village for $3.5 and $5.4 million, and the iconic Miller House, a historic yellow building on the corner of Broadway and Willow downtown, listed for $4.5 million dollars. Two of the 5 new listings in this high-end segment are already under contract. For the first time since I began tracking new listings in January 2014, there were 0 new listings priced under $500,000 this past month.

Winter is a Great Time to be a Buyer

As we enter winter, many sellers' motivation increases, especially for properties first listed in the summer. This can present great opportunities for buyers. Contact me to learn where I see the best off season deals.
