2020: July Market Report

What happened in July?

What Sold

Jackson Hole Real Estate sales exploded in July recording 57 transactions, more than double the sales seen just last month and also topping sales levels from this time last year (49 sales in July 2019). What is even more impressive was the monthly sales volume - a staggering $165 million, far surpassing the previous monthly sales volume record of $118 million April 2018. There is no doubt about it - the Jackson Hole real estate market is on fire! The average sale price increased to $2.88 million in July, the highest level seen in the last 12 months. The median sale price also increased up to $1.9 million, the highest monthly level since I began keeping these stats back in 2013. Out-of-town buyers continue to come to Jackson Hole, putting added demand on an already tight market. July sales occurred, on average, at 97% of their listing prices. Fourteen properties (25% of all sales) sold at or above their asking prices, many a result of multiple offer situations. Single family homes made up more than two-thirds of July sales, also a high not seen in the last 7 years. Nearly 72% of July sales were for more than $1 million with the majority of sales (25) occurring in the $1 - 3 million range. A whopping 16 properties sold above $3 million, with three properties in excess of $10 million, including two large homes north of town and a home with 360 degree views atop Gros Ventre North.

Thinking of Selling?

Early concerns that the coronavirus would slow down the Jackson Hole real estate have not come to fruition. In fact the opposite has occurred with out of town buyers flooding the real estate market seeking an "escape" from city life. We are seeing properties sell more quickly and for higher prices as a result. Sellers have a unique opportunity to take advantage of this unprecedented level of demand. Please reach out for an informal discussion; let's chat about the exploding Jackson Hole real estate market and how it affects your property's value.

New Listings

The rate of new inventory entering the market remained strong in July with nearly 100 new listings coming online. Down from June's high of 110, more properties hit the market this July than in July of 2019 (91 new listings). The total listing volume topped $300 million for only the second time since last July 2019 ($320 million). The average listing price remained above $3 million for the second month in a row, and the 4th time in 2020. The median list price dropped in July, down to just under $1.8 million from $2.175 million in June. Despite the declining median list price, the majority of new listings in July we're in the $3+ million segment, the first time we've ever seen the majority of a month's new listings in this price point. A staggering 35 new listings hit the market in excess of $3 million with 4 listings over $10 million, including homes in 3 Creek Ranch and up at the Amangani, and a slope side private residence at the Four Seasons. Nearly 30 properties hit the market in both the $500 - $1 million "locals market" and the $1-3 million segment. Over half of the new listings in July were for single-family homes, a section of the market that has seen healthy sale activity over the past few months. Nearly 60 new lot listings have entered the market since May, more than in the previous 9 months combined.

Is now a good time to buy?

An influx of out of town buyers has definitely put added pressure on the market, with many properties receiving multiple offers upon hitting the market. Now more than ever, it's important to be ready to jump when the right opportunity arises. Know the market, follow the comps, make sure your financing plan is lined up, be ready to act on the right property. If you are looking to buy in this market, please connect with me so that we can make sure you are being alerted to new listings as soon as they hit the market.
