Adios Nevados

I’ve been asked several times whether Nevados Restaurant was going to open again, and while I had not been able to give a solid answer to that question in recent years… I can now. Last week Nevados was razed to the ground sealing its fate into Mammoth history. Thank You for all the great times, Tim and crew. Here is a short video.

Wall Street Spending Billions Buying Homes

An ongoing topic of discussion in the housing world, and now in the political world, are the efforts of larger corporations and hedge funds purchasing great numbers of single-family homes with the intent of renting them back to the open market. The thousands of home purchases are catching the eye of all political parties, mostly concerned that these large property owners will have an influence/control over the rental market, making the market less competitive. Political leaders are discussing a variety of “anti-trust” avenues to potentially curb investor ownership; ranging from increased tax rates on owners with large holdings to placing limitations on the number of homes a corporate entity can hold. While I typically like to take a Laissez-faire attitude to things such as this, I can see where mass ownership by a few entities could grow into a larger problem by limiting competition.

Single Family Homes

April was a comparatively slow for sales with only 3 of the 19 year-to-date sales taking place in the month of April.  The Year-To-Date median price of a single-family home increased by $5,000 in April, keeping the YTD median price of a home consistent with 2023.

Median Home Sales Prices by Month for 2023 and 2024

As can be seen from the graph below, the median price of single-family homes varies month to month.  This is largely due to the limited number of sales in any given month, but this information is helpful in seeing how the market behaves in any given month of the year.  April saw primarily high-end home sales, which drove the median price to $3,000,000 for the month. 

Median Home Prices

Below is a summary of available (active) home listings at the beginning of each respective month:

Active Home Listings

As seen in the graph above, the number of active home listings (inventory) increased throughout most of 2023 with slight declines being observed for Year-To-Date 2024.  This exhibits ongoing demand for housing without an increase in housing supply.

Prices per foot help us to understand the markets from a different perspective.  Below is a table and graph showing single family home sales on a price per square foot basis.  2024 information is based on 19 sales Year-To-Date.

Condo Median

The median sale price for condominiums, by month, allows us to observe buyer and seller attitudes throughout the year.  The median price of a condominium peaked in the month of October 2023, attributed largely to several new higher-end condominium sales in the Creekhouse project.  October 2023 is also the date the moratorium for TOT rentals went into effect but was retracted in March 2024. 

Condo Median Sales Per Month

This year, the total number of active listings peaked in December 2023, with 66 active listings.  As of May 1, 2024, there were 55 active condominium listings showing a slight decline on the year.  For comparison, May 2023 had only 28 active listings.
