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 9/22/17

Last week saw the first real snow accumulation in the the city limits and more on the mountain tops, and was probably as "off season" as we get any more. Visitor count was down, but there were lots of happenings for locals - High School home coming, election campaigning, fundraisers and construction to name only a few. The new Whole Foods at Kimball Junction is scheduled to open on October 18th and will be twice the size of the old store at Redstone. Ritual Chocolate will be located inside and over 100 Utah vendors will be featured in the store. The new building will also include 20 affordable housing units and the Silver Mining Taproom serving local beers. Local sports results took up 2 full pages of the Park Record - not including feature stories. This weeks stories included coverage of the Miners golf team winning the Region 11 golf tournament, top results for the Park City Fencing Academy, a successful kickoff of Miners water polo, a close victory for the girls soccer team and wins for the volleyball team. If you have children interested in sports, consider Park City and not just for snow sports. Last week there were 68 pended sales reported by the Park City Multiple Listing Service in the week ended 9/22/17. 43 closings and 58 new listings were reported during that week.

Single Family Homes: Last week I mentioned an interesting new listing in Old Town that had come to market with photography delayed. 605 Woodside Ave has now corrected that problem. This 6,909 SF, 7 bedroom, 9 bath home built in 2009 in a prime ski-to/ski-from location in the heart of Old Town is listed for $9,995,000 ($1,447/SF). http://www.spotlighthometours.com/tours/tour.php?mls=11703780&state=UT . A second luxury home just out of town on Old Ranch Road is 4135 N Two Creeks Lane. This 7,825 SF, 4 bedroom, 4 bath home on 4.12 acres was built in 2012 and features exceptional views and privacy. Priced at $6,125,000 ($783/SF), this home will attract attention from the equestrian crowd. http://www.tourbuzz.net/public/vtour/display/873744?idx=1 . A new listing in Midway in the Heber Valley shows why many Park City owners are taking advantage of current Park City prices and replacing older homes with Heber Valley properties. 1128 Dutch Fields Parkway is a 5,254 SF, 6 bedroom, 5 bath home built in 2014 and priced at $1,049,000 ($200/SF) http://www.tourbuzz.net/public/vtour/display?idx=1&mlsId=257&mlsNumber=1482183 . Two single family home sales of homes featured in previous posts were standouts on the list of last weeks 30 pended sales. 1024 Norfolk Ave in Old Town is a 2,939 SF, 4 bedroom, 6 bath new construction home completed in 2015 and priced at $3,150,000 ($1,072/SF). It sold after 63 DOM. http://www.tourbuzz.net/public/vtour/display/826793?idx=1#!/ . 2624 Aspen Springs Drive is an 8,092 SF, 5 bedroom, 6 bath home on 2 acres in the Thaynes Canyon area. Priced at $3,695,000 ($457/SF), this home sold after 88 DOM and will probably be on my best purchases of 2017 list. http://www.tourbuzz.net/public/vtour/display/795950?idx=1#!/ .

Condominiums: 8 of the 18 new condo listings last week were new developer releases at the Apex and Wasatch Springs projects, but there were several older remodeled in-town units that have been in much demand lately. 950 Park Ave, unit #216 at the Park Station project in Old Town is listed at $579,000 ($500/SF). This 1,157 SF, 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo built in 1982 and remodeled in 2015 has excellent rental potential http://www.spotlighthometours.com/tours/tour.php?mls=11703910&state=UT . 1541 Crescent Road, unit #153 in Old Town is a 1,296 SF, 2 bedroom, 3 bath property built in 1972 and priced at $750,000 ($579/SF)
