Teton Village Update – April 22, 2008
Actually the Tram Tower is no longer there….but a new one is being built!
The update at Teton Village: What has happened since the March report? The ski season at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will go down as one of the very best. Highlighted by over 600 inches and a base of over 100 inches skiers were delighted by quality skiing all season. Next year will be the debut of the new Aerial Tram so we will be excited about the 2008-2009 season too. With that said – we have had it with winter! Bring on Spring!
Real Estate News – There have been 3 closings since March 1st. A Four Seasons Resort Penthouse for $4,500,000, a new "Timber’s" Free Standing Townhome for close to $3,400,000 and an older condo that sold for close to $1,600,000. The last month of skiing proved to be fairly active on the sales side as there are 9 Pending transactions with an average list price of $2,260,000. This includes 2 Granite Ridge Lodges and 1 Four Seasons Penthouse.
The 9 Pending Transactions sound great but the real news is in the available active inventory — 54 Active Listings. The median active listing price is $1,995,000 so there is a lot of inventory priced in the "millions" category. Average Days of Market is climbing and is at an average of 157 days (that’s an entire ski season!).
Overall the Teton Village Market is a strong Buyer’s market. There are a lot of condos and townhomes to choose from and there are probably many Seller’s willing to negotiate. The biggest issue with the available inventory is that the prices were set when the market was much more active. Now we do not have Buyers and the pricing is at pre decline pricing.
