The housing market
Affordable housing: A community-wide challenge
In 2020, the imbalance between supply and demand for housing propelled the cost of real estate to an all-time high.
By the end of the year, the median price of a single-family home jumped 44% to $2.5M. Today, inventory is down 60%; of the 45 single-family homes available for sale, only five were listed for less than $3M.
In stark contrast, today in Teton County, the median family income for a family of four hovers around $115,000 annually. All things being equal, a family earning the area median income could afford a home priced around $450,000. This is a far cry from the current price of a condo or townhome. Today, the median sales price of a condo is $950K; with 20 condos listed for sale with a median list price of $1.45M.
The Community Housing Trust is committed to serving Teton County by getting affordable homes in the ground—on time and on budget. Anne, Alison, Jennifer, and Katie work together to engage partners, homeowners, community leaders, and housing professionals in pursuit of creative solutions to Jackson’s housing problem.
The Housing Trust staff is guided by a knowledgeable and passionate volunteer board committed to the
complex issue of affordable housing.
