Park City Mountain Resort will be opening Nov 28th with Payday and First Time lifts in operation. The early snow helped create a base up top, but warm weather has forced them to make snow for the lower runs.

This might sound crazy, but I want this Blog to be useful for you. Shoot me an email or comment on this post and we'll get you the Park City and Deer Valley info that you want.
For those that are reading, here's your tidbit.
The County will be establishing the value for your property taxes for 2009. The amount you get taxed will be determined based on value of the property on January 1, 2009. The soft market right now should mean that as angry as many were that they were overvalued this year, you'll be sitting pretty for next year.
Now, when you get the preliminary bill, there is a 'fight this amount by' date. You'll be downloading the valuation dispute form from SummitCounty.org.

I've taken the time, and invested the money, we have 4 of the featured listing spots.
www.Realtor.com is the most searched website for buyers of real estate nationwide. That is to say, 8% of buyers look at Realtor.com during their search. The other 92% find agents directly via Google and Yahoo.
How do you get noticed on the one busy site? You buy featured spots, at roughly $3000/each. We have four that we rotate listings through.
Here's an example:

The Park City Building Department reported on the final September 2008 figures this past week. $134.6M in construction permits were issued last month. That's down from Sept 2007's figure of $174.1M, just one year ago.
All in all, I would say that still shows fine growth, maybe more in line with demand, and not containing any excesses for the spec home builder. Park City remains a small local resort economy. Although not all the Realtors and builders are lining their pockets with gold as they had in the previous years, there is still plenty of money, snow, luxury, views, schools, etc to go around.

Willow Creek Park is our newest community park located off Old Ranch Road with amazing views of the Canyon’s Ski Resort. In the winter the pond becomes an Ice Skating rink, and the trails around the park become a great place for cross country skiing.
Adjacent to the park space, there are 66 acres of undeveloped open space under a conservation easement with Utah Open Lands. With multi-use playing fields, tennis, basketball, volleyball courts and a great picnic pavilion for Birthday Parties or Family reunions. This park is surrounded by beautiful homes. A must see !

Park City and Summit County are working towards a December 15th date to finalize a joint 680 acre purchase of open space which could eliminate the prospect of 800 new homes on the west side of 224 at Kimball Junction.
