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. 

“For over 30 years, my family has had a laser focus on real estate in Jackson Hole. As close to the issue as I am, I remain shocked by the current state of the market and I am saddened by the total absence of opportunity for hard working families to have stability in the community they serve.”
