As prices for Jackson Hole real estate have fallen in the past year, sales of building sites have decreased dramatically. In general, better deals on existing homes have been more attractive than buying land and building.
But there will always be those more interested in designing and building a home themselves. And while Teton County is quite famously comprised on 97 percent public lands that cannot be developed, there is not exactly a shortage of available building sites.
In fact, there are 32 sites that are 35 acres or larger listed in Teton County Multiple Listing Service. Currently, I am working for a client looking for something a bit smaller, and this is the search I sent him that includes 15 home sites listed below $575,000.
Interesting search results include:
- The least-expensive site is a 0.02-acre site in East Jackson for $275,000 that includes plans for a 1,650-square-foot home with more square footage available below grade. Listed last year for $450,000.
- This search includes two of the 22 approximately 0.14-acre lots recently made available in the southwest corner of Rafter J.
- A full-sized town lot on Cache Creek Drive listed for $425,000 after 285 days on the market, no price reductions.
Contact me for a discussion of what makes these lots intriguing, or for a more comprehensive or focused look at Teton County building sites.
