An Update on BHHS Utah Ski Developments

The 2014-2015 ski season has proven quite exciting with the arrival of Vail Resorts in Park City. The proposed changes to Park City’s resort landscape have impacted real estate trends on the slopes in interesting and unprecedented ways. Across the board, we are seeing a stunning increase in new construction and vacant land purchases. Consumers seem fixated on new construction and building. Amenities are also frequently cited as a strong point of consideration among buyers.

All of these preferences amount to a new kind of buyer.

In the Colony, our development agents are reporting a record-breaking number of builds taking place and tremendous interest from buyers about locating near the base of the planned and approved gondola connecting Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort, which ends right in the middle of the Colony development. In the last year, 21 lots have sold in the Colony, and there are currently a total of 45 homes under construction or in the SARC process.

In upper Deer Valley, we have seen steady buyer interest. Again, we are seeing a new demographic of buyer emerge: one that wants newer builds, hotel-level amenities, ski access, and a good investment. Our Deer Valley developments have all reported strong sales and remarkable demand for new product.

Deer Crest currently has the lowest amount of inventory since the development’s inception. There’s a wide swing in prices, several resale lots, and great demand for land. In 2014, all new Deer Crest homes sold, most before construction was completed. There’s also less demand for large homes…the priority seems to be intimate family gathering spots with ski access.

The St. Regis at Deer Valley has seen quite a lot of activity: residences are almost sold out and there has been good turnover with the condos.

Deer Pointe townhomes are pre-selling as they’re coming on the market. The hill track ski lift, which takes Deer Pointe residents to Jordanelle skiing, has been completed.Exterior4jpeg

The Stein Eriksen Residences have continued to sell at an unprecedented pace. Currently, 36 of the 54 residences have sold. SER has capitalized on the new demographic of buyer by offering a perfect storm of features: brand new construction, ski-in/ski-out construction, great amenities, fresh contemporary design and finishes, views, and the Steins five star, five diamond management team and name.KitchenViewjpeg

Overall, our ski developments have seen a stream of buyers all expressing the same demands: new builds, ski access, amenities, and family gathering spaces.

Contemporary has arrived in Utah

By Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties

Steel. Concrete. Elegant angles. Escher-esque interiors. Slab marble. Scandinavian Design.

It’s happened. Contemporary has arrived in Utah.

With land sales on the rise in a major way, we have seen a thriving influx of contemporary designers and builders looking to realize their visions in Utah. This adoption of the cutting-edge is in no way piecemeal or unique to Utah’s real estate sector. In the last 5 years, Utah has garnered tremendous attention from economists, major financial and news publications, federal institutions, and even foodies for its booming state economy, gastronomic flare, cultural offerings, second-to-none scenery, and always-growing tech sector. Given that our state has been named the best state to do business, the most digitally advanced, and the best place to start a career (among other cool accolades)…it’s no wonder that locals, new residents, and second homeowners have acquired a taste for the modern…even futuristic.

In Salt Lake, you’ll see more glass and minimalistic interiors. In Park City, the dark woods of “mountain modern” are being swapped out for exposed concrete, steel, and geometric tile work. Developments that have elected to adopt New York inspired lines and designs, like the Stein Eriksen Residences, have seen unprecedented success in pre-sales (there are still a few left…but not for long). Modern builders with a thorough working knowledge of new steel treatments, energy-saving green systems, domestic hardwoods, and Italian dark marble are in high demand.

While the cost of building has gone up, so has demand. (You know…in accordance with basic market behavior.) As Utah continues on its unprecedented trajectory of growth, Berkshire Hathaway Utah looks to further cement its position as the #1 Utah brokerage to champion contemporary. We look forward to continuing to represent forward-thinking developments, internationally renowned designers and builders, and our best-in-the-biz professionals.
