This past Saturday, Park City held a parade to celebrate its many Olympic athletes. It was a great reminder of how lucky we are to call this town home. The impromptu blizzard added to the celebration, decorating all of our winter athletes with our famous Utah powder.

Check-out this video we shot!

Real Estate Market Update


A recent survey of over 50,000 real estate professionals reports a consensus view that home prices will continue to increase moderately this year, at a median rate of 3.9%. Tight credit conditions and conservative family budgeting may limit price increases, but the real estate market will continue to grow in strength.  As evidence of this, properties are currently selling more rapidly -- the median of days on market has dropped to 62.



According to the report, “Access to credit” was often cited as a deterrent to home buying. About 13 percent of REALTORS® who did not close a sale in February reported having clients who could not obtain financing. Other professionals found that the combination of rising prices; higher interest rates; and added fees such as FHA’s up front and continuing mortgage insurance premiums has eroded affordability. Modest job and income growth and difficult underwriting standards have also held off prospective buyers.


Fortunately, Utah’s economy is projected to grow steadily and more rapidly than the national average. The state’s real estate market will most likely experience a 3 to 5% increase in home prices due to a stabilizing economy, statewide business growth, and historically low inventory. 




Prudential Utah Real Estate lists and sells more exceptional Park City properties than any other brokerage in the area. We know how to price, market and negotiate extraordinary homes. Please contact your Prudential Realtor® to sell or find your Park City home.

Market Area Spotlight


Upper Deer Valley   


Upper Deer Valley’s market remains robust. While home prices continue to increase, condominiums are selling for less than last year, making them good investment options. Since January, Upper Deer Valley homes have had an average selling price of $6,400,000, up from $3,200,000 at the same time last year. In contrast, sold condominiums had an average selling price of $1,200,000, which is down from $1,700,000 last year.  



Stein Eriksen Residences Update


Stein Eriksen Residences have seen a tremendous amount of activity since their initial winter release and are offering new additional product. Due to the success of the previous reservation phase, developers have decided to release the final building. The current 37 reservations are expected to convert to purchase contracts in June, and the project will be constructed en masse with no phasing starting this summer. Completion for the condominium buildings is estimated at twenty months. Contact your local Prudential agent for more information.

The Mine Bouldering Gym

If you are looking for a way to broaden your horizons, try rock climbing at the Mine, Park City’s new bouldering gym. This is one of the best family activities off of the slopes. Owned and operated by local climbers Andy and Dom, the Mine has a fun energy and is conveniently located at the Park City Junction. Go try pulling your way up a wall of colorful plastic holds, or attend one of their yoga sessions; then hit-up the movie theatre or Red Rock Brewing.

The 5 Coolest Distilleries in the World

By Lea Hartley Team
Mar 21, 2014

The art of alcohol distillation dates back to some of the earliest civilizations. The ancient Chinese were known for distilling a beverage from rice beer, Greek philosophers were known for distilling wine, and arrack was being distilled in the East Indies by 800 BC. Today, the practice continues and we highlight some of the coolest places in the world to sip on spirits while gaining an insider view on how they're made.

High West Distillery and Saloon



Located in Park City, Utah, High West is the world's only ski-in distillery and gastro-saloon. Park your skis outside and step inside of one of only a few two-story Victorian style pyramid houses for a Rocky Mountain Rye and High West's famous ribs. The distillery tour takes you to the house's basement, where you'll see how High West distills its small-batch, mountain-crafted spirits.

Park City, UT; The City Of Champions

By Lea Hartley Team
Feb 18, 2014

By Tyler Arnold


Every four years the world sends 2,500+ athletes to the Winter Olympics. Of those thousands, each Olympics about 200 athletes from the United States partake in the event.  Considering the current population of the United States of America, 317.5 million, (according to the Census clock) it goes without saying that to even qualify as an Olympic athlete, is a grand achievement on it’s own. Only 0.000072% of the population is good enough to represent the USA in the Winter Olympics.

Of those 200 that successfully survive a lifetime of sacrifice and commitment, overcoming countless injuries as they commit their body, soul, and mind to the sports they love, there is one place, a 17.56 sq. mile ski town in the Rocky Mountains of Utah that has redefined what it means to be a city of champions.



That town being Park City, Utah. A small city with a population of 7,873 (according to the 2012 Census report). A place known by the pop culture lovers as the site of the Sundance Film Festival, is also making a large splash in the sports world. A place where the lavish set up home, and live the luxurious life, but also a place for a winter sport athlete to make a reality of their dream. A city that is about as a close to a winter sports mecca as you will ever find.

Despite being just 17.56 square miles, PC is home to three world class ski resorts, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, and the Canyons, and just under an hour drive to another four resorts. There is a little bit of it all for snow lovers. From the beginners to the Olympics hopeful, there is a place for you on the mountains in this quaint resort town.

Park City is a town that has re-imagined what it means to grow up in a ski town, and the opportunities it affords you. A place where seeing snowflakes wouldn’t surprise locals 10 out of the 12 months a year, where average winter high temperatures peak at 40.75 degrees Fahrenheit.

With a base altitude of 7,000 feet, Park City has long been a ski and snowboard enthusiast’s must visit destination, but since the ’90s, Park City has blown up as a public destination for  winter sports activities. With the 2002 Winter Olympics (which were officially hosted in neighboring Salt Lake City) catapulting the efforts vastly forward.
