Searching for a spacious condo with a central location in the middle of Park City?

Then check out this Saddle Townhome! This Park Meadows condo is within a quick walk to the Park City bus route, post office, restaurants and shopping.

The Saddle Townhomes are located just one street away from Park Avenue and don’t come on the market often as only 16 of these townhomes were built in the late 1970’s.

655 Saddle View Way is a 3 bedroom, 5 bathroom unit with 2,595 square feet of space.

This unit has come on the market for $474,900. It is bank owned, but has been nicely kept up and does offer upgrades in the kitchen, living area, master bedroom and master bath.

Park City is not only home to three world class ski resorts in Park City Mountain, Deer Valley Resort and Canyons Resort – but according to Ski Magazine, Park City is also home to one of the best ski swaps in the United States!

The 40th Annual Park City Ski Swap begins next Friday, November 2 and continues through November 3 and 4th at Kimball Junction’s Basin Recreation Field House.

As one of the oldest ski swaps in the Mountain West, the Park City Ski Swap offers a wide selection of equipment, including skis, boots, poles, snowboards, clothing and more.

While the swap offers high-end new equipment, if you’ve got old equipment you are looking to upgrade – you can sell used equipment up to five years old.

Park City’s real estate market has sure made up ground over the past quarter! As I mentioned last week, 3rd Quarter Statistics presented by the Park City Board of Realtors came in with a few impressive surprises.

The town’s property sales were up 4 percent for the quarter while median real estate prices (including homes, condos and lots) increased 11 percent.

In addition to property sales and pricing increasing, vacant lots hit hard by the recession have gone up in price by 19 percent.

Another good sign that Park City’s real estate market has stabilized and is on the rise are the decrease of distressed properties such as short sales and foreclosures. A year ago, 3rd Quarter distressed sales made up 27 percent of Park City’s market sales. During

While the general consensus has been that the Park City real estate market is moving in the right direction over the past nine months, it’s reassuring to see numbers rolling in the right direction. We got off to a slow start in January, but from February to September of 2013 – we’ve seen the highest number of pending sales since the height of the market in 2007.

What does this mean for pricing? Well pricing trends for the 3rd Quarter are similar to the 2nd Quarter – some areas and property types have seen pricing rise while others have decreased.
