Transactions/Sales Volume – What Sold?
Average Sales Price
Total Sales Volume
If you've been following the Jackson Hole real estate market at all this summer then it will come in no surprise to hear that we've had one of the most explosive third quarters in market history. All market statistics were up in Q3 2020, many significantly so. The 3rd quarter of 2020 (July-Aug-Sept) recorded nearly 100 more sales than Q3 last year, which was considered a strong quarter/year. Monthly sales exceeded 2019 in every month, nearly doubling last year's numbers in August and September specifically. Even more dramatic, overall sales dollar volume in Q3 2020 dwarfed numbers seen last year, up a staggering $448 million. Monthly sales volume in Q3 2020 was over double that of 2019.
As expected, the average sales price of the third quarter this year increased significantly, up more than $1 million over Q3 2019. The median sales price also increased, up an average of $500,000 over the 3 months of the third quarter, and far outpacing median sales prices in each month. Similar to 2019, the majority of sales in Q3 2020 occurred in the $1-3 million price point, however in 2020 there were 36 more sales in this price point. The largest shift from last year was in the luxury high-end segment ($3+ million) where 48 more sales recorded this year vs Q3 2020, no doubt a contributor to the historic sales volume seen this summer in Jackson Hole. Over half of the sales in the third quarter were for single family homes, an increase from 2019. Interestingly, 2020 saw fewer condo / townhome sales and more land sales as many out-of-town buyers looked to purchase land as existing inventory continued to dwindle.

New Listings – What’s New?
AvERAGE LIST PRICE
LIST PRICE Volume
It's no doubt that demand for Jackson Hole real estate was up significantly this past summer, but how did things look on the supply/listing side? Overall new listings in Q3 2020 were up only slightly from 2019, mirroring monthly levels seen last year. While reporting a similar number of new listings as last year, the overall dollar volume of these listings increased dramatically, recording $200+ million more in volume in Q3 2020. Much of this increase can be attributed to a very strong September where a similar number of new listings hit the market but accounted for nearly $185 million more in listing volume than in Q3 2019. As a result, the average listing price for the third quarter increased nearly $1 million from this time last year. The average median list price for the quarter was also up, topping $2 million from $1.45 million in Q3 2019. Again, both helped by a very strong September which saw a monthly average list price over $4 million and a median list price of more than $3 million.
In an interesting flip from Q3 2019, the majority of new listings this summer were in the high-end luxury market with nearly 100 listings coming online priced above $3 million (compared to 46 new listings in Q3 2019). We saw significantly fewer new listings in the $1-3 million range while maintaining similar levels for price points under $1 million. As a response to the increased sales of building sites in Q3 2020, we saw an influx of vacant land listings, as many landowners saw this summer as a great opportunity to capture the new demand of out of town buyers frustrated by a lack of existing inventory.
