Predictions from Derrik on the 2024 Real Estate Market in Park City, Utah

With over two decades of experience in the real estate sector and leading an elite team in Park City, Utah, I, Derrik, offer my insights into the anticipated trends for the 2024 real estate market in this vibrant area.  Despite the unpredictability that has characterized the market in recent years, including an incorrect prediction during the COVID-19 market downturn, my track record remains largely accurate, bolstered by the volume of leads and showings, which provides a clear indication of market direction.

Park City's real estate market, both in the short and long term, shows promising signs of strength and resilience. In January alone, our team successfully placed six properties under contract, with three in the Deer Valley area. This activity signals sustained interest and confidence among buyers, many of whom initiated their property searches as far back as 2017. These buyers, informed by the market's recent history, appear willing to pay slightly above the last selling price, though not to the extremes seen during the late 2020 boom.

As we approached the end of 2023, a noticeable trend emerged among buyers, who either paid in cash or secured mortgages under the assumption that interest rates, should they increase, would later allow for refinancing at a lower rate should the market adjust. This strategy underscores a belief in the market's resilience and an expectation for eventual rate decreases, contrary to quicker interest rate drops predicted by some analysts. This perception of the Federal Reserve's capacity to lower rates contributes to a sense of economic stability, encouraging substantial investments in Park City's real estate.

Given our active engagement with a broad spectrum of buyers and the traffic to our website, I anticipate a 5% appreciation in property values for the year. This projection is slightly conservative compared to Park City's 20-year appreciation rate of 6.7%. Last year, properties on the outskirts of town seemed most at risk of depreciation. However, the development of Deer Valley East Village has revitalized interest in these areas, suggesting continued robust demand and sales.

In summary, the 2024 real estate market in Park City, Utah, is poised for continued growth, driven by a combination of historical trends, buyer confidence, and strategic market positioning. While the future is inherently uncertain, these factors collectively provide a solid foundation for optimistic predictions in the coming year.

Park City Real Estate Trends: A Detailed Analysis of 2023

In the picturesque landscape of Park City, Utah, the real estate market has shown both resilience and variability throughout 2023, navigating through a complex terrain of economic factors and consumer preferences. This analysis delves into the latest trends, offering insights for potential buyers, sellers, and investors alike. With a focus on single-family homes and condominiums within Park City Limits and the Snyderville Basin, we uncover the dynamics shaping the market today.

Overview of Market Dynamics

A distinct dichotomy within the Park City real estate market has marked 2023. Interest rates, holding steady, have had an impact on buyers reliant on financing. This financial hurdle has particularly affected the lower end of the market, where small condos have faced challenges in attracting buyers. Conversely, the upper end of the market has continued to thrive, with large ski homes experiencing robust demand. Despite a slowdown in the golfing communities of Park City, properties in these areas are still finding their way to closing tables, underscoring the enduring appeal of Park City's lifestyle offerings.

Single Family Home Stats: Park City Limits & Snyderville Basin

In 2023, Park City's single-family home market saw a significant median sales price increase to $3,000,000 (up 23.5%) and a 10.5% decrease in closed sales, indicating strong demand but a more balanced market with longer decision times for buyers.

Conversely, the condo market experienced a 34.6% surge in median sales price to $1,245,000 and a rapid turnover, with median days on the market drastically reduced to 8 days, reflecting a highly competitive environment despite a decrease in sales volume.

Park City Real Estate Trends: October 2023 Update

As we enter the final quarter of 2023, it's time to dive into Park City, Utah's latest real estate trends.  This month, we've combined data for both Park City homes and condos, focusing solely on the Park City market for our update.

Key Insights for October 2023:

Park City's real estate market has shown intriguing shifts recently.  The number of property listings has steadily decreased over the past four months, sliding from 469 in July to 424 in October.  This trend coincides with a drop in the absorption rate, which has decreased from 6.57 months in July to 5.78 months in October.  These changes indicate a tightening market with a dwindling supply of available properties.

Listing Prices and Transaction Activity:

Listing prices have remained relatively stable, with only slight fluctuations.  Meanwhile, transaction activity has followed seasonal patterns.  It's important to note that the ski resort opening might be an opportune time to explore ski property options.

As we've highlighted in previous updates, one-month snapshots can sometimes be influenced by unique property sales that skew the numbers.  For example, six luxury home listings are currently priced over $25,000,000, typically with longer sales timelines than properties in lower price ranges.

Navigating the Complex Park City Market:

The Park City real estate market is a complex landscape.  For instance, a 4+ bedroom home ranging from 4,000 to 5,000 square feet can vary widely in price, spanning from $1,750,000 to nearly $7,500,000.  This range underscores the importance of understanding the nuances of the market, and our team is here to help you gain that insight.

October 2023 Market Highlights and Comparisons:

Absorption Rate: In October 2023, Park City recorded an impressive absorption rate of 4.41, marking a 255.65% increase compared to October 2022, but still under a six-month supply that is considered a healthy supply of properties.

List Prices: The average list price in October 2023 was $3,193,570, showing a modest decrease of 6.44% from the same month in the previous year.  However, considering the year-to-date average list price of $3,068,793, we observe a healthy 4.04% increase throughout 2023, indicating resilience in property values.

Similarly, the median list price in October 2023 was $1,834,375, reflecting an 8.28% decrease compared to October 2022.  Yet, the year-to-date median list price of $1,789,950 shows a 2.70% increase, suggesting consistent growth.

Sale Prices: The average sale price in October 2023 was $1,944,696, a 16.57% increase from October 2022.  This impressive gain is mirrored in the year-to-date average sale price, which aligns with the October figure.

The median sale price in October 2023 was $1,488,234, an increase of 13.82% from the previous year.  Once again, this upward trend is consistent with the year-to-date median sale price, indicating sustained appreciation in property values.

Days on Market: The average cumulative days on market (CDOM) for properties in Park City was 85 days in October 2023, reflecting a 34.92% increase compared to the same month in 2022.  This uptick in CDOM may suggest a slightly longer wait for sellers.

The median CDOM in October 2023 was 56 days, showcasing an increase from the four days reported in October 2022.  However, the year-to-date median CDOM remains at 63 days, indicating that properties are generally selling within a reasonable timeframe over the year.

Conclusion:

The real estate market in Park City, Utah, continues to be dynamic and appealing, especially for those looking to live life on vacation.  The October 2023 data reveals notable changes compared to the previous year, with surges in the absorption rate and sale prices.  While list prices have experienced some fluctuations, the year-to-date figures demonstrate overall growth.

As we move into 2023, it's important to closely monitor these trends and consult with local real estate experts to make well-informed decisions.  Whether you're considering buying, selling, or investing in Park City, these insights offer valuable guidance for navigating this vibrant market.

September 2023 Statistics and Trends

Park City Home Trends - Sept 2023

The real estate landscape in Park City continues to evolve with a few surprising turns.  As buyers and sellers adapt to this dynamic market, staying informed about the latest statistics and trends is crucial.  Here's what September had in store for the single-family homes in Park City.

The Park City real estate market saw notable shifts in September 2023.  The median home sales price decreased to $2,675,000, down 13% from the prior month and 6.1% year-over-year.  Despite the price drop, home sales increased significantly, with 55 homes sold—an uptick of 37.5% from August.  Homes stayed on the market for an average of 61 days, slightly longer than previous periods.  Sellers secured about 97.4% of their asking price, a minor improvement from prior figures.  Lastly, the inventory decreased substantially to 4.6 months, indicating a competitive market with high demand and limited supply.

  • Median Sales Price: In September, the median home sales price was $2,675,000.  This represents a decrease of 13% from the previous month and a decline of 6.1% from the same time last year.  Such fluctuations highlight the changing sentiments in the market.

  • Closed Sales: There were 55 homes sold in September, marking an increase of 37.5% from August's 40 sales.  Compared to September of the previous year, sales have risen by 31%.  The transaction boost might be influenced by several factors, including changing housing needs or seasonal buying trends.

  • Days on Market: Homes were listed for an average of 61 days before selling in September.  This is longer by 24.5% compared to August's 49 days and a modest 4.3% increase from the 59 days last September.  The longer duration can suggest buyers taking their time before making an offer.

  • List Price Received: Sellers received an average of 97.4% of their asking price, showing an improvement of 1.2% from August and a slight 0.3% boost from last year.  This signals that while there might be more room for negotiations, sellers still achieve near their desired values.

  • Inventory: As of September, an estimated 4.6 months of inventory are available for homes in Park City.  This represents a significant drop of 34.1% from August's 6.9 months and 25.7% less than the 6.1 months recorded last September.  The reduced inventory underscores a competitive market scenario where demand is strong against a tightening supply.

Park City Condo Update - Sept 2023

Shifting our attention to the condo market in Park City, we observe some distinctive patterns that diverge from the single-family home sector.

In September 2023, the Park City condo market exhibited unique trends compared to single-family homes.  The median sales price dropped to $1,145,000, a decrease of 11.9% from August and 4.3% year-over-year.  Condo sales decreased with 45 units sold, marking a 13.5% reduction from the prior month and a significant 31.8% decline from last year.  However, condos sold faster, averaging just 20 days on the market—a 52.4% decrease from August.  Sellers received about 97.8% of their listing price, showing slight fluctuations from previous periods.  Lastly, inventory increased to 4.4 months, suggesting a more balanced but tight market.

  • Median Sales Price: Condos had a median sales price of $1,145,000 in September, down 11.9% from August and a 4.3% dip from last year.  The reasons for this decline can be multifaceted, ranging from a shift in the types of units sold to broader market sentiments.

  • Closed Sales: In September, 45 condos and townhomes were sold.  This is a decrease of 13.5% from August's 52 sales and a substantial 31.8% drop compared to the 66 units sold during the same month last year.  This decline could be attributed to various reasons, including changing consumer preferences or specific developments within the condo market.

  • Days on Market: Condos spent an average of 20 days on the market in September, a significant 52.4% decrease from August's 42 days and 25.9% less than the 27 days seen last September.  This rapid turnaround indicates that condos are in high demand, and buyers are acting swiftly.

  • List Price Received: Condos were sold for approximately 97.8% of their listing price.  This is a slight increase of 0.8% from August but a marginal dip of 0.2% from last year.

  • Inventory: The condo market now has about 4.4 months of inventory, up 12.1% from August's 3.9 months but 18.9% more than September of the previous year.  This inventory growth can hint at a slower absorption rate, but it's essential to note that the market remains relatively tight, especially compared to historical standards.

In Conclusion, for September 2023, Park City Real Estate Trends

Park City's real estate market, buffered by a significant proportion of cash transactions, continues to demonstrate resilience despite broader financial pressures like rising interest rates.  While there are indications of price adjustments and cautious buyer sentiment, the underlying fundamentals, especially in the single-family home segment, appear robust.  The condo market requires close monitoring, as it shows early signs of softening, though demand remains relatively strong.

August 2023 Statistics and Trends

In recent months, it has taken some time to understand the dynamics driving the real estate market trends in Park City.  The trends we're observing locally deviate considerably from narratives from buyers from other areas.

Single Family Homes - August:

  1. Median Sales Price: There has been a tremendous rise of 67.6% in the median sales price since August 2022.  This remarkable growth is particularly interesting, given that Park City seems somewhat insulated from the broader influences that typically impact the market, like interest rates.

  2. Closed Sales: Sales have surged by 34.5%.  This might be fueled by local factors or unique attributes of Park City that differentiate it from other regions.

  3. Days on Market: Despite the robust growth in prices and sales, homes are taking 58.1% longer to sell than last year.  This could indicate a more cautious buyer pool or unique transaction complexities in this market segment.

  4. List Price Received: At 96.3% of the asking price (a slight decline from the previous year), sellers might be experiencing more negotiation, but they're still achieving near their asking prices.

  5. Inventory: There's a slight uptick in new listings, but with active listings declining, it underscores the robust demand against a tight supply backdrop.

Condo and Townhomes - August:

  1. Median Sales Price: A 10.2% increase year-over-year is healthy and signals a continued demand, although not as pronounced as in the single-family homes segment.

  2. Closed Sales & Inventory: With modest growth in sales and a notable decrease in active listings and supply duration, the condo market also leans in favor of sellers.

  3. Selling Time Increased: Despite strong demand, condos, like single-family homes, are taking significantly longer to sell.

The announcement of the Deer Valley Resort Area's expansion, including the Mayflower Mountain Resort, is expected to add significant value to Park City's appeal.  This development promises to enhance the area's recreational offerings and will likely have a ripple effect on property values.

Given the unique dynamics of the Park City market and upcoming developments like the Mayflower Resort, we're optimistic about the prospects for real estate here.  The trajectory indicates that Park City remains a robust investment opportunity, distinct from the experiences relayed by buyers from other regions.

Investors, homeowners, and potential buyers should monitor how these developments impact demand and supply in the coming years.  Park City's unique position in the real estate market, bolstered by the resort expansion, paints a bright picture for future property values.

April 2023 Statistics and Trends

In April 2023, the real estate market in Park City, Utah, showed some interesting trends. 

The median sales price for single-family homes in Park City and Snyderville Basin was $2,198,000, representing a 14.5% increase compared to the previous month.  The average sales price also saw a notable rise, reaching $3,267,136, indicating a 14% increase from March.  However, despite the price increases, the number of closed sales for single-family homes decreased to 22 in April, down from 32 in the previous month.  The median sold price per square foot for single-family homes was $650, demonstrating a 10.5% increase.  The percentage of list price received for homes remained consistent with the historical trend at 95% in April, though it was higher at 101% in the same month last year.  The total sold dollar volume for single-family homes in April was $68,609,848, representing a 25% decrease from the previous month and a substantial 43% decrease compared to the previous year.

Looking specifically at condos and townhomes statistics, the median sales price for condos in April 2023 was $1,205,000, showing a slight decrease of 5.5% compared to the previous month.  However, the average sales price for condos saw an 11.8% increase compared to the previous year, reaching $2,065,903.  The number of closed sales for condos in April decreased to 43, down by 23.2% from the previous month.  The median sold price per square foot for condos was $935, indicating a slight 0.4% decrease from the previous month.  The percentage of list price received for condos was 97.3% in April, slightly lower than the 97.5% recorded in the previous month and higher than the 101.1% in the same month last year.  The total sold dollar volume for condos in April was $88,833,837, indicating a 14.1% decrease from the previous month.

As an experienced real estate professional with a background in Park City's market, I've observed several trends in the current real estate market.  Well-priced homes in good condition continue to attract buyers, and we're even seeing multiple offers in the sub $2 million range.  Many buyers who postponed their purchase due to the excellent skiing conditions return in June, taking advantage of the opportunity to conduct thorough home inspections.  May 2023 will be a strong month for our real estate team, as we have helped seven families buy or sell properties in Park City and the surrounding area.  Drawing from my 20 years of experience in the industry, this market feels reminiscent of 2015 or 2017.  As long as lending institutions maintain their current loan policies, I anticipate a relatively stable market in the foreseeable future.

Considering these insights, it is evident that the real estate market in Park City has experienced both positive and negative trends.  While home prices have shown appreciation, the decrease in closed sales and total sold dollar volume for single-family homes and condos may suggest a slightly cooling market.  As a real estate advisor, I recommend carefully assessing the current market conditions, including supply and demand dynamics, before making decisions.  Additionally, it's crucial to consider long-term investment goals, financial capabilities, and personal circumstances when evaluating whether to purchase a property in Park City.

March 2023 Statistics and Trends

Market Insights for Single-Family Homes in March 2023:

In March 2023, the median sales price for a single-family home in Park City was $1,920,000, a 43.7% decrease from the prior period in 2022 when it was $3,115,000 and a 38.4% decrease from the previous month.  In addition, the number of homes sold in Park City in March increased by 45.5% from the previous month but decreased by 13.5% from the same period last year.

The number of new home listings increased by 26.9% from the previous month to 33, a 44.1% decrease from last year.  The current supply of single-family homes in Park City is 5.4 months, a decrease from the previous month's 8.4 months.

For buyers interested in doomsday scenarios, the number of unsold homes in March 2023 was 17, which increased from 12 in February to 11 in March 2022.

Market Insights for Condos and Townhomes in March 2023:

In March 2023, the median sales price of a condo in Park City was $1,250,000, a 20.2% increase from the previous month but a 0.8% decrease from the previous year.

The number of closed sales increased by 96% from the previous month, from 27 to 53, but decreased by 37.6% from the previous year, as the year before included closing out some PENDRY ski condos.

On average, sellers of condos in Park City received 97.4% of the asking price, a 0.6% decrease from the previous month.  Additionally, 9.4% of condos sold above the asking price.

Despite some fluctuations in the market, buyers and sellers are still actively involved in the real estate industry in Park City.  However, it's important to note that Park City is a small market, and a few properties can heavily influence market trends.

Park City Market Trends and Outlook:  While I have a positive outlook for the spring selling season, the Fed may continue to increase rates to balance the real estate market.  For example, one client interested in buying a luxury home advises me to prepare for lowball offers, believing the market may soon fall.  But, another client predicts that the Fed may decrease rates in late summer or early fall, which could lead to a stronger market than what's currently being observed.

Ultimately, we only have one life to live, so enjoying it to the fullest is important.  Living Life on Vacation is possible in Park City, and the real estate market should be seen as a means to achieve that goal.

February 2023 Statistics and Trends

As a Park City real estate advisor, I've noticed buyers seem to be waiting to see what happens next with real estate in Park City.  While sellers may be willing to negotiate a bit, it's important to note that they may not be as flexible as some buyers would like.

The snowy weather has made it challenging to show condos since many are rented out.  This has made it difficult for buyers to view the properties they want.  In February, some buyers have decided to wait until spring or early summer to purchase properties when inspections are easier to perform.  Despite these challenges, properties in Park City are still closing every day.

This month, we saw notable changes in the prices and sales of single-family homes and condos in Park City.

Let's start with single-family homes.  First, we can see the market's seasonality, as the median home price rose by a significant 37% from January to $3,215,000.  In addition, home prices increased by 5.5% to $3,047,000 compared to last year's time frame.  Although there were only 16 home sales in February, a 37.5% increase from January, it was still lower than the 34 sales from last year.

One positive note is that a healthy home supply is at 6.1% of inventory.  However, many of these homes are either not yet built or require some updating, so the best homes are still selling quickly.  It's also worth noting that the median days on the market for a Park City home are 52, and sellers receive 94.6% of the asking price.

Now, let's look at Park City condos.  As previously mentioned, condos have been harder to show due to high rental demand, and the median sales price decreased by 25.7% from January to $1,400,000.  Compared to last year's time frame, condo prices were down 16.3% to $1,242,500.  Despite tying with January for 27 condo sales, the number of condo sales was down by a staggering 71.3% from last year, largely due to the new development of Pendry closing in 2022.

Currently, there is an 8.1 months' supply of condos in Park City.  The median days on the market for Park City condos is 28 days, and sellers receive 97.9% of the asking price.

In summary, the real estate market in Park City for February 2023 has shown significant changes in single-family homes and condos.  While single-family homes continue to sell at a healthy pace with increasing prices, condos have seen a decrease in prices and a notable drop in sales due to high rental demand and the closure of Pendry.
