I am pleased to present our comprehensive market report for Q2 2021. The Jackson Hole lifestyle with its wide-open spaces, wildlife, scenery, recreation, safety, ease of travel and tax benefits, appears to be more desirable than ever. Real estate year-to-date numbers through Q2 show no signs of slowing down. When comparing YTD through the second quarter 2021 to 2020, the number of transactions in Teton County nearly doubled to 427 and total sales volume more than doubled to $1.2B.
The continued exodus of individuals from cities in seek of a less-urban lifestyle, is pushing demand for local real estate to new heights. As a result, some sellers who own real estate in the area are taking advantage of this strong market. Inventory is down 56%, but that is a slight improvement from Q1 of 2021.
