What happened in November?
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.
