by Teri McCarthy

The future of real estate prices in Jackson Hole is always a matter of keen interest to area homeowners and investors. So it’s important when the latest national numbers in the Case-Shiller Index show that the rate of rise in real estate prices has begun to slow.

Several people have asked me, lately, "What are real estate prices doing?". 

A year over year comparison of home sales for a few Jackson Hole neighborhoods, Jan 1 through Sept 30 2013 vs the same time in 2012 shows 10.8% to 11.5% appreciation in 2013.

This week's issue of Barron’s magazine features The Best Locations in America for a Second Home, whereGrand Teton National Park Jackson Hole is ranked number one.  During their annual review of the second home market, it was discovered that buyers are fleeing high-tax states and buying up properties in states with less onerous tax burdens. In late 2012, real estate prices have risen, especially in low-tax states, such as Wyoming, Nevada, Florida and Texas. 
Wyoming, a state with no debt and a budget surplus of about $1 billion, saw a tax-motivated buying surge in Teton County, the second half of 2012.  Jackson Hole, Wyoming saw almost a 100% increase in luxury home sales compared with the same time period in 2011.   An astonishing forty-one Teton County luxury homes, priced over $2m, were purchased from July 1 through December 31, 2012, with an average sales price of $4,988,171.   The same time period in 2011, twenty-one luxury homes sold with an average price of $4,339,562. The percentage of list-to-sales-price jumped to 93% in 2012 from 89% in 2011.
