MARKET REPORT OVERVIEW OF THE JACKSON HOLE REAL ESTATE MARKET | 2014 YEAR END

Christie’s International Real Estate GLOBAL AFFILIATE OF THE YEAR


Introduction Overall Market Jackson Hole’s real estate market in 2014 could be defined as continued recovery and the return of a seller’s market, which is a refreshing sentiment for those invested in the real estate market, and stability for those looking to get into the market. The overall trends of 2014 showed more of the same – fewer overall transactions, increased average sale prices and very low inventory. The overall number of transactions in 2014 dropped about 13% when compared to 2013. As appreciation became reality, particularly in the lower-priced segments, the average sale price increased over 6%. Also, greatly affected was the median sale price, which climbed nearly 17% over last year, rising to $750,000. Nonetheless, the climb in sale prices was not enough to outpace the lack of transactions, which resulted in a decrease in overall dollar volume of about 5%. This decrease in total dollar volume can also be attributed to the distribution of sales, which overwhelmingly consisted of properties under $1M, or about 65% of all sales. Also notable, and comprising about 14% of 2014’s transactions, were property sales between $2M and $5M, which increased by 10%. The low supply of Jackson Hole inventory, down about 18% in 2014, has been consistent over the past 2 years, and this we anticipate driving appreciation in most market segments. 17% | Overall Sales Volume

Market Overview by Segment Single Family Segment The single family segment of Jackson Hole’s real estate market finished 2014 with some significant changes when compared to 2013. Similar to the overall market, the single family segment decreased in number of transactions by about 17% over 2013. Price appreciation and a shift in the distribution of sales ended the year with a total dollar volume slightly higher than 2013; a 2% gain. The average sale price increased approximately 12%, to about $1,670,000, while the median sale price jumped up nearly 30%, to $1,070,000. The distribution of sales into higher price points is a contributing factor to these large percentage increases. While the majority (40%) of single family homes sold within the $500K-$1M segment, each of the higher-priced segments gained market share in 2014, with the over $5M segment increasing by about 15% from 2013. Most notable is the over 66% decrease in transactions in the under $500K segment due to properties disappearing in this price point. In fact, the same number of buyers bought a home under $500K as did homes over $5M. The area within the Town of Jackson, where the majority of single family home sales take place, had about 21% fewer transactions when compared to 2013. However, with the average sale price increasing nearly 30%, the total dollar volume gained about 3% despite the drop in transactions. If single family supply maintains low levels, down approximately 12%, the single family home market in Jackson Hole will likely continue to track in a similar pattern as in 2014. At the end of 2014, there was less than 8 months’ worth of supply of single family homes on the market.

Market Overview by Segment (continued) Condominium & Townhome Segment Since the market as a whole began to stabilize, the condominium/townhome segment of the market made leaps and bounds toward a healthy recovery. Now, it seems, the condominium/townhome segment of the market has reached a more sustainable pace of growth. Both the average and median sale prices increased over 8% to $610,000, and $458,000, respectively. Much like the market as a whole, the condominium/townhome segment had about 10% fewer transactions compared to 2013. Again, due to lack of inventory, the increase in sale prices was not quite enough to match the total dollar volume in 2013, dropping about 7%. The success of purchasing a condominium or townhome under $500K continued to become more difficult in 2014, with about 23% fewer sales under $500K compared to 2013. However, buyers searching in this price range shouldn’t be discouraged, as the sales that took place under $500K still accounted for slightly less than half of the condominium and townhome transactions. The two primary areas for condominium/townhome sales are the Town of Jackson and Teton Village, however both of those areas lost market share in 2014 to the Aspens and Teton Pines. This geographical area gained about 28% in sales in 2014 over 2013. Condominiums/townhomes continue to be in short supply evidenced by a 15% decrease in active listings from this same time in 2013. With only 77 total units currently available for purchase, this equates to less than 5 months of inventory based on the current rate of absorption.

Vacant Land Segment The vacant land segment of the market mirrored the overall market in 2014 with an approximate 14% decrease in the number of transactions, and a 9% decrease in total dollar volume. The average sale price and median sale price both encountered a healthy gain. The average sale price rose about 13% to $1,160,000 and the median sale price made an impressive leap with an approximate 48% increase to $745,000. This leap in the median sale price can be directly attributed to a shift in the distribution of sales into a higher price segment. 2014 included many high dollar land sales and far fewer sales under $500K (28% less than 2013). The number of sales between $2M and $5M doubled from 2013, with 24 transactions. There are two areas of particular note from 2014. The area farthest south of Jackson around Hoback Junction had a large increase in transactions (up 86%). This can primarily be attributed to a recurrence of sales in the Snake River Sporting Club, which had a very successful year. Also of note is the Town of Jackson area, which had an over 70% decrease in the number of transactions. This can be directly attributed to the lack of inventory in this area which is down 40% from last year. Of the 9 lots available in the Town of Jackson, only 3 of them are listed for less than $500K. The vacant land segment of the market as a whole can only improve with the continual decline in supply each quarter (down 22% from 2013). The vacant land market came out of the recession with a staggering amount of inventory which has persistently been whittled away. As of the end of 2014, there were about 15 months of inventory available for sale which is a noted improvement from the end of 2012 when there was over 2 years of inventory for vacant land.

Luxury Market Spotlight

Jackson Hole’s luxury market dipped slightly when compared to 2013, with an approximate 10% decrease in the number of transactions. The average sale price in the luxury segment fell, only slightly, by about 2%. The 2014 average price for a luxury property in Jackson Hole was about $5,800,000. The area south of Jackson, which includes 3 Creek Ranch, garnered the majority of the luxury transactions, followed closely by Teton Village and the various neighborhoods north of the Town of Jackson near the Jackson Hole Airport. Currently, there is nearly 2 years’ worth of supply for sale in the luxury segment, which is the most inventory available in any single market category.
