Spring has sprung! It’s time to dust off old man winter and do some spring cleaning along with some necessary spring maintenance on your home. Winters in Park City tend to be longer and harsher due to our altitude, so when the weather is right, make yourself a checklist to ensure you get them all knocked out and avoid any potential problems. With the selling season upon us, these items are especially important if you are planning on listing your home to sell.

1. Clean gutters and down spouts.
Gutters and down spouts tend to get cluttered with debris from trees and can cause leaks in places you may not even notice. Ensure that there are no loose points along the gutters as well.

2. Examine those roof shingles.

Wow, another report of statistical real estate data showing some impressive numbers. It has continued to be a very busy selling season in the greater Park City area, and we just don't see any signs of a significant slowdown anytime soon. At the end of the first Quarter of 2019, in comparing year over year, we again see a slight decline in unit sales but an increase in price.

The entire Park City MLS, if we include all residential, fractional and commercial properties, saw 2,864 properties sell, compared to 2,686 for the prior 12 months. That is only a difference of 6% and is still a staggering amount of sales activity for this small (but growing) resort community. Even more impressive is the sheer volume of just over $2.5 Billion in closed sales.

snowmobiling near park city utah

It's that time of year again, when the ski resorts in Park City close, but we are still getting amazing snow in the higher elevations. One option to enjoy the powder is to head over for a ski day at Brighton or Snowbird. Brighton typically stays open through the third week of April, while Snowbird will run as long as there is snow - for 2019 they will probably go into June. Driving to either Brighton or Snowbird is less than an hour from Park City and is a real treat since our PC resorts have been closed for a couple weeks.

Pink Park City

Pink Park City is the one day of the year for people to come together to ski or snowboard for a cause that hits home for most. The first pink day was held in Vail in 2012 as an event to support breast cancer but has since grown to support all types of cancer research. This cancer-fighting experience brings the community together in celebration and support of the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City. Participants register and solicit donations on their own personal fundraising page, with 100% of the donations go to fund cancer research.

The event includes a day of skiing, live music, food and activities at Park City Mountain. Tons of swag will be handed out in giveaways and drawings. There will be deck parties at four Park City Mountain

There is nothing quite as thrilling as “breaking trail” for outdoor enthusiasts. One way to experience this winter’s incredible fresh, often untouched powder is on a snowmobile. As long as you plan ahead and have all the necessary gear and provisions, you can ride for miles through the backcountry and experience some stunning wilderness that is easily accessible from Park City. Snowmobiling is an adrenaline-inducing activity and a terrific activity for non-skiers and those looking to take a break from the slopes.

The 2018 year-end housing statistics for Summit & Wasatch Counties, as reported by the Park City Board of REALTORS®, revealed a diverse and mixed market. While there was a 7% decrease in the number of home sales, the Wasatch Back saw a 7% increase in median price.

Looking at the entire Park City MLS, for all product types, we have enjoyed a trend of upward momentum in units sales since the low in 2009. With eight years of increased activity, we now finally see a slight decline for the year end results of 2018. The 2001 through 2005 increase of activity was a much more dramatic increase in sales, and probably too much too fast. The last eight years we have had a steady increase, and possibly a healthier outcome for the real estate market.
