What happened in January?
After a very slow end to the year (with only 29 new listings in Dec 2020), 38 properties hit the market in January to kick off the New Year. January 2021 marks the first time since June 2020 that there were MORE listings than monthly sales (albeit only 1 more), ending a trend that saw at one point more than twice as many sales as monthly listings. As a result of the unprecedented sales levels in the second half of 2020, Jackson Hole inventory is the lowest I've ever seen it. There are currently only 69 residential properties for sale in all of Teton County, with only 12 under $1,000,000. Exacerbating this trend, 29 of January's 38 new listings were above $1 million, with 12 new listings over $3 million. The average list price of the properties entering the market in January was $3.6 million, actually a decline from December when the average list price pushed above $4 million. The median list price dipped below $2 million for the first time in the past 3 months. The majority (23) of new listings in January for were single family homes, including two homes in Teton Village above $10 million. Despite the winter weather, 7 new lot listings hit the market, including two lots in Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis (listed for $995,000 and $1,450,000) and a lot in Game Creek for $789,000, all of which have already sold or are under contract. In fact, of the 38 new listings in January, 25 are already under contract, further illustrating the fast pace of the market thanks to limited inventory and continued high levels of demand for Jackson Hole properties.
