With the end of June came what is considered summer here in Park City after an unusually wet spring “mud-season”. The end of June also marks the end of the 2nd quarter and time for a Park City and Deer Valley real estate market update. The Park City and Deer Valley home and condominium sales for the quarter show that the market has slowed, but probably not as much as people think.
For comparison purposes, we will look only at areas 1-22 for the Park City MLS which includes the Park City neighborhoods of: Old Town, Thaynes, Lower Deer Valley, Deer Crest, Upper Deer Valley, Empire Canyon, The Aerie, Prospector, Park Meadows, The Canyons, Olympic Park, Silver Springs, Old Ranch Road, Kimball Junction, Pinebrook, Summit Park, Jeremy ranch, Silver Creek/Glenwild, Trailside park and Promontory. Our data for comparison will be limited to single family homes, condominiums and vacant land.
Sales data for Park City real estate for the quarter are as follows: 120 total units sold for the quarter with 55 being single family homes, 56 being condominiums, and 9 parcels of vacant land or building lots. These numbers represent a drop in total sales volume of 44% versus 2008 and 67% versus 2007. The drop in dollar volume versus 2008 was 58% and 74% when compared to 2007 sales. The lack of new product has a very pronounced effect on the condominium data; look for these numbers to turn around dramatically in the next two quarters as we see the St. Regis at Deer Crest and Dakota Mountain Lodge sales recorded.
The YouInparkcity.com group feels that of particular interest is the relation of the actual sales price versus the original and asking prices at the time of sale: sales prices were discounted 10% versus asking price and 19% versus the original price for the quarter. Of course the relatively small sample size we are dealing with can skew these numbers.

Areas we feel may be of particular interest statistically include Promontory and Empire Pass.
