Over the last 5 years, our market has moved steady upward. Posting solid gains. We are not back to the highs of 2007 yet. 2015 was another great solid year. Growth is steady, but inventory is on the smaller side. I would describe our market as “HEALTHY”.. Dollar Volume & Median price keeps increasing at decent rates. Nothing crazy… The median sales price increased around 4.7% in 2015. The demand is strong, but there are still great affordable properties to purchase. New Constructions product is in VERY high demand and buyers are willing to pay a premium for it.
Buyers are still wanting to live in the Park City Market because of the unique lifestyle it offers. Most of Park City is “built out”…. The major growth will move toward the Jordanelle area where there is land to develop. The other major area of expansion will be at the Canyons Village where new high end properties will be built. Most Recent: Apex & Lift were announced as brand new developments. Our market will always continue to be highly segmented where prices and property options will always vary.
