The following stats were provided by the Chamber of Commerce and compiled internally at Jackson Hole Sotheby’s. Only a few are directly related to real estate, but all play a role in the greater regional economy.
Overall, most of the figures mirror the Jackson Hole real estate market: stable and better than 2009, but still struggling to regain the mojo of the middle of this decade. However, there is no sugarcoating the building and commercial sectors of the local economy.
