Todd Anderson, President of the Park City Board of REALTORS® commented, “Inventory has declined over the years and that doesn’t seem to be changing. Home prices have increased at a steady pace year-over-year in the Park City area and are rising in extended areas in Summit and Wasatch Counties. Building costs are up as well. It appears that the increase in home-price trend is becoming the new norm across the state. We can’t build fast enough to keep up with the demand.”

Conclusion

By these numbers, it is easy to see that our market area is full of unique micro-markets that vary significantly from one neighborhood to another. Comparisons are hard to read on paper due to the unique features of individual properties. Simply reviewing overall real estate market trends is not sufficient to understand property values, as amenities, property condition and style, location, inventory, and age are hard to determine from a bird’s eye view. Buyers and sellers would be advised to contact a Park City Board of REALTORS® professional for the most accurate, detailed, and current information.
