April 2020: Real Estate Market Update Pre-Pandemic

Summit County, Utah

Park City Board of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service, reported a strong end to our last quarter in 2019, the overall year-over-year housing statistics for Summit and Wasatch Counties continued to show strong appreciation with increases in both average and median sale price as well as dollar volume. Pre COVID19, the greater Park City market in general continues to show great stability in single family homes. The number of homes sold increased 4% with the median sale price rising 12% year over year.

During the same period in 2018, the median sale price gained 7% indicating a sustained period of steady, consistent growth. The strongest single-family price gains appeared in the fast growing Jordanelle area to the southeast of the Park City metro area, south of State Rd 32, and in the Tuhaye/Hideout area on the east side of the Jordanelle Reservoir.

The Park City condominium sales exploded in fourth quarter increasing 24% in units sold (966 vs 777 sold in 2018) with a solid median price gain of 7%.

COVID19 - Pandemic "HIT"


Park City real estate is still functioning the midst of the COVID19 health crisis, but with limitations. The transactions have slowed...but we are still in business. Which is Fantastic news! There will always be buyers and sellers in the real estate market place. So we need to shift our approach when buying or selling. We have shifted to working virtually with showing requests using 3-D home tours, videos, and face-time. We utilize social media platforms such as Facebook live for open homes and breaking news. The virtual technology will be the game changer going forward as many buyers, sellers, and agent adapt to the new way of doing business. Looking forward into what the real estate market might look like, China’s real estate market is now back to pre-pandemic statistics. The current real estate slow down has “COVID19”…this is not a housing crisis.
