Park City Real Estate prices have been trending up for the past year or two now (we here at YouInParkCity.com called the market bottom around February of 2012). Some areas are seeing prices rise much faster than others.
Summer generally sees an increase in sales of the low to middle price point single family homes in Park City and this year has been no exception. Areas with easy access to Salt Lake City as well as local Park City amenities are in the greatest demand.
A few of the areas that we generally see heat up during the summer include Silver Springs, Park Meadows, Trailside Park, and Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook and Prospector. The first half of the year shows Trailside pricing up by 23%, Park Meadows up by 25%, and Pinebrook up by 15%. The variables of the home sizes and age make the relatively small number of homes sold a year ago have the ability to skew the numbers, so while prices are definitely up, home values have not increased by these amounts.
The Snyder’s Mill area of Silver Springs though may actually have seen this type of increase. While the Park City Board of Realtor statistics show only a 7% rise in prices for the Silver Springs area, sales in Snyder’s Mill represent one of the hottest neighborhoods in Park City. This year has 4 of the top ten highest sold prices that have ever been paid for a home in the Snyder’s Mill subdivision of Park City. Three of the homes have sold recently are the 2nd, 3rd and 4th highest per square foot values that have ever been paid in the Snyder’s Mill area. Current pricing and sales are eclipsing the peak pricing from 2007. When the subdivision was originally built in the early 1990’s, homes sold for as little as $90/sq ft. Tastefully remodeled homes in Snyder’s Mill are now selling for over $300 per square foot.
The combination of a well-kept neighborhood in a central location with easy access to Park City (historic as well as the new area at Kimball Junction) and pricing in the sweet spot of the Park City real estate market ($500K-$800K) make Snyder’s Mill one of the hottest real estate neighborhoods in Park City, UT.
