This BLOG is focused on updating you on the most significant new sales and listings in the Park City area market on a weekly basis. All content is original. By finding and discussing what makes some properties standout in terms of location, design, and price, I can help buyers spot locations and property types that may meet their needs. I select properties from all members of the Park City Multiple Listing Service that have quality video presentations. These videos are the next best thing to an actual property tour. When you are sure that an actual visit to one or several properties is worth your time, we can make that an enjoyable experience. If you are considering the sale of a property you own, it can pay big dividends to see what comparable properties are selling for vs. what properties you may be competing with are listed for.

I don’t shy away from expressing my opinions concerning this market and I’ve had many years of experience in doing so, but I need to know what you want to accomplish before I can really help you. This website and my BLOG are just first steps in a process that needs to add value to your efforts, so pick up the phone and call me or send along any comments you have on my BLOG posts.

Significant Sales - week ended 11/10/17

Today is Veterans Day. Remembering my 1966-1971 experience in the U.S. Air Force amplified by watching all 18 hours of Ken Burns latest documentary  made me reflect on how fortunate I am to be in Park City, Utah doing what I'm doing. One of our very old jokes is that if you can remember Park City in the 60's and 70's, you weren't here. The "no stoplights" days are long gone and I got another reminder of current changes last week. Last week pwc put out it's 39th annual "Emerging Trends in Real Estate" - one of the oldest and most highly regarded annual industry outlooks for the real estate and land use industry. The 2018 edition provides a regionally based look at 78 major markets and pwc's analysis for each market for the coming year. This year's survey selects Seattle as the top-ranked market, up from being ranked number four last year. Number 2 was Austin and Salt Lake City jumped to #3. The common bond shared by the top 3 was being the home to tech giants, having a well-educated labor force, and having strong liveability ratings, affordable living costs and technology readiness. I found this very accurate and detailed analysis quite disturbing since I've been expressing my opinion that Utah should not be among the locations competing for Seattle-based Amazon's new second headquarters (forecast to be the mother of 50,000 jobs), but thinking to myself that SLC could never compete with Dallas (#5), LA (#7), Atlanta (#17) or Denver (#23). Now I'm worried and depending on our tightfisted state government to stay clear of the big dollar incentives rumored from others. I believe Utah is too busy growing the next Amazons to make a nest for this Amazon. It was another quiet week in Park City real estate as we await the first major snow storm of the season and the opening of Utah Resorts in the next few weeks. There were 54 pended sales reported by the Park City Multiple Listing Service in the week ended 11/10/17. 43 closings and 61 new listings were reported during that week.
