  The Park City area market continues to be steady overall, with a slight dip in condominium sales. The dip in condominiums could be because it's been challenging to find condominiums that are priced correctly and updated. 
Second Quarter 2018 stats revealed continued demand and an increase in median sales price. At the close of the second quarter, the number of single-family home sales in the Greater Park City Area increased by 6%, vacant land by 5%, while the condominium sector was slightly down compared to last year’s sales. Demand continued to rise on a gradual level, with

 Lower Deer Valley Real Estate

Video Transcription:

Hi, Derrik Carlson up here in Lower Deer Valley.  I'm driving around and looking at what's going on in the market. There's been quite a bit of new construction that's been going on and you can see one as I pass right now.  Our numbers don't necessarily reflect that because really Lower Deer Valley was built out in the 90's for the most part. It is a pretty mature area of Park City. So, when you look overall, we have 39 total listings. 18 of those are single family homes, 19 are condos and only two are lots.  So far this year we have had 28 total closings: 8 homes, 17 condos and 3 lots.

There is a mix of type of properties that are available. Let me see if I can just flip you around real quick

Homebuyers navigating the real estate market often focus on the factors that suit their needs today — and for the duration that they live at the property. Many overlook the home’s future resale value. Yet, according to NAR (National Association Of Realtors), you should approach choosing a home as more of a business decision.

Location influences the value of real estate more than anything else. Homes in a desirable location will attract a larger pool of buyers, and

You walk into a new construction community and you are immediately overwhelmed with excitement and possibility. You explore the community and everything checks out. The house is exactly what you’ve wanted, the curb appeal is charming, and the smiling salesperson is so friendly. Everything just seems right.


As a Realtor, I show a lot of homes to potential buyers. Even when the buyer absolutely loves the home, there is always something that they would change. They may not like the color of the carpet, backsplash, or walls.

When you build a new home, you can build it the way that you want it. This is probably the most attractive reason to buy a new home.

New Home Construction in the Park City Area

New construction remains strong in the Park City area. Whether you're thinking about building a starter home or a luxury home the market here has changed over the past several years. I've spoken with several builders of the past couple of months and they are all running into increased costs of labor (up 20% in the past year), goods such as lumber (up 28% in the past year), steel (up 25% in the past year), and more. Expect the cost to build in Park City to start at $200 per square foot for a very basic home while the high-end homes start at $400 per square foot, and ski-in-ski-out tends to run over $1,000 per square foot. An interesting tidbit I picked up from a builder is that a home that would have cost
