A no "fluff" & fact based analysis on the COVID-19 affect on Park City Real Estate. Consistently updated with new data to keep track of what we are seeing week by week. 

Locals as well as vacationers to the Park City area are all wondering how the current pandemic is having an affect on the real estate market as a whole.

Restaurants, shops and other venues have closed their doors to the public. The ideas below are assuming the best case scenario we will see for Summit County, Utah if we open up for normal summer activities. 

The shelter-in-place orders have had a harsh effect on many people’s lives, but the good news is that some areas are now preparing to re-open. Park City Utah is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy

As one of the fastest growing areas in the state of Utah, real estate surrounding the Jordanelle Reservoir in between Park City & Heber City is seeing explosive growth over the coming years. As real estate in Park City has been mostly built out this location offers the next best thing in proximity to the ski resorts with great access to Deer Valley Resort and the new Mayflower Resort off of Highway 40.

As the world faces a sudden pandemic and drastic economic changes across the globe we are frequently being asked about how this will affect real estate within the Park City area. We are in a unique situation in that our market is significantly different than larger metro markets as we hold a significant amount of vacation property and rental property throughout the area which changes the dynamics we will see compared to a majority of the country. For instance, almost 2/3 of the transactions in the Park City market are cash purchases and not financed transactions. Wealth levels for property owners in the area are significantly different than even the Salt Lake City real estate market so the responses will be quite different from one another.

As we enter the 2019 season it is important to understand how the real estate market in Park City changed from 2018 compared to the previous year. We have seen a very healthy and active market for a number of years now but has 2018 proved to be the same as previous years? LEt's take a look at some of the interesting numbers below to take a look at where we stand after another full year of data to review.
