Real Estate sales in the Park City area for the 2012-2013 ski season increased dramatically from the previous ski season.
Resort skiing at Park City’s three Resorts has ended for the season although the snow continues to fall. It is typical spring weather as we move from 50 degrees to a blizzard and back again in a 2 day period.
The Park City Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitors Bureau statistics show that lodging nights were up for the season and city hall has reported higher tax revenues. Park City area real estate sales were right in step. While inventory levels are at their lowest in years, sales for the ski season increased and so did prices.
Total sales for this past season (homes, condominiums and building lots) were up by over 25% from the previous year.
The largest jump in sales was in building lots with 99 sales, nearly twice the 54 from the previous season. Low inventory and lower building costs have something to do with this as buyers gave up and have decided to build after home searches did not satisfy their desires.

The median value of the building lots that sold remained steady with the previous year at $325,000.
