Jackson Hole’s real estate market started very strong in the first half of 2018 with number of transactions up 11% and average sale price up 10%. Even more important to note was the increase in median sale price, a more accurate indicator, up 22% from a year ago. The majority of transactions were in the $500,000 – $1 million price segment, however, there was a sharp increase in transactions over $5 million, up 77%. This sharp increase drove total dollar volume up by 33% compared to a year ago. The single family home segment was the most popular among buyers achieving 41% of the mid-year market share. Inventory continued to decrease as did well-priced new inventory, which was a contributor to the 23% decrease in active listings and 13% decrease in average days on market.
