Current Park City Market Overview


Second Quarter stats are out. As ever, Park City's multi-faceted resort market remains complex. After carefully reviewing the numbers and interpreting them, here are our thoughts.

-Our market is stable. While we are seeing gradually increasing prices and growth, it is measured and steady. There are no alarming trends with regards to sales price or inventory.

-Buyers have options. While listing inventory feels constrained in the under $1 million market, new builds and good turnover in several of our neighborhoods mean that buyers still have a lot of options. In fact, taken as a whole our inventory is the highest it's been since 2007.

-Two trends, one market. Homes valued under $1 million seem to be

In our latest tour of Echo Spur, Old Town’s seven home, mountain modern development on Rossie Hill, we were blown away by the comprehensive and seamless integration of sustainable features into some of the finest contemporary architecture we have ever seen.

The developer’s research into sustainable technologies focused on energy efficiency features that improve quality of life and - here’s what’s new – result in significant cost savings in operating the home.

Location, Location, Location. 

When you begin the searching process for your new home, it's best to start with neighborhood. Take into account everything from where your friends are, bike lanes, commute time, food scene, access to health care, etc...

Investigate the surrounding area: Good schools boost your property value. Research the closest parks and community centers and consider how busy streets impact the neighborhood. Check out stores and restaurants in the area. Let's be real, distance to the nearest place to buy milk or work-out is of critical import.

Take the temperature of the area: Is the average resident young, married, settled professionals with kids...? Are you looking for urban energy or quiet with big yards and wide

Buyers today understand they need a sizeable down payment and a strong credit score to secure a conforming home loan. They must hold liquid funds for another financial obligation—an earnest money deposit—to be paid when they make an offer on a home.

Earnest money is handed over to the seller’s agent or the title company when a purchase contract is signed. This demonstrates that the buyer is serious about the transaction and is backing it up with cash.

Without this, buyers could simply make offers on many homes, essentially taking them off the market until they choose a favorite. Sellers rarely accept offers without it.

There is no set amount for an earnest money deposit, so it’s negotiable. If there are multiple bidders, the seller may ask for up

Most homeowners want to be eco-friendly, yet they worry that making changes in that regard might be costly and time consuming. Incorporating energy-efficient lighting is a great way to make a big impression with green-conscious homebuyers. In fact, studies have reported that 80% of homebuyers identify energy savings and comfortable surroundings as key factors when deciding between listings.

It isn’t just limited to fluorescent tubes or CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps). LEDs are an energy-efficient light source that began growing in popularity around 2007. LED lighting can be used as accents to better showcase the home’s features. From track lighting over the fireplace to under-counter cabinet lighting and recessed lighting in the hall, LED fixtures can
