The graph below is a representation of the median single-family home pricing taken from the table above:
Median Home Sales Prices by Month for 2021 and 2022 YTD
Below is a summary of active home listings as of the 1st of each respective month
The Year-to-Date (YTD) median price for a condominium in Mammoth Lakes is $775,000, which is 28%
higher than the median price observed for all of 2021. This median price was determined through 265 sales
YTD. It appears that the median market prices have been declining slightly since May of 2022, but what is not
obvious in the details below is that in recent months there have been a considerable number of new, premium
quality, condominium sales dominating the upper end of the sales range. These high-end sales had contract
dates that were established 1-2 years prior to their recent closing dates. This means many recent high-end sales
are reflective of the market pricing 1-2 years prior and not reflective of today’s market. The YTD median price
below is 4% lower than observed last month.
The graph below is a representation of the condominium pricing table on the previous page:
