The information is really interesting to see. When comparing Teton, County (Jackson Hole) to the other communities you can see that Teton, County has the highest Average Sale Price by far, the least amount of active listings and the largest decrease in the number of available properties for sale when compared to 2012. To me, it illustrates some of the benefits and down falls of our real estate market here in Jackson Hole. The benefits are that our real estate values are going to be strong and will increase significantly as activity increases. The negatives are going to be our lack of inventory. When looking at available real estate for sale in areas like Vail it is remarkable to see almost 2,500 active listings compared to Jackson 450. Wow – I can only imagine what it would be like to have that much inventory.
One more stat that is interesting to point out — Number of Listings per Realtor — Jackson Hole = 1.02. Vail = 3.65. Big Sky = 14.2. Park City = 5.0
