Mammoth Lakes Residential Closed Sales Analysis YTD 2014
From January 1st, 2014 until present, there have been a total of 74 closed residential sales (homes). Many people often ask the question of what the residential sector of the real estate market is doing in Mammoth Lakes, specifically with regards to selling prices per square foot. When it comes to using a generic price per square foot (PPSF) for sold homes, there are so many factors that are used to determine the value that using a standard PPSF method isn’t always the most accurate way to come up with an estimate of value. However, you can come fairly close using this method when comparting similar homes in similar neighborhoods, etc. and making appropriate adjustments based on location, views, upgrades, room count, square feet, garage capacity, orientation, roof composition, size of lot, etc. The following will be an overview by neighborhood in Mammoth Lakes for closed sales January 1st, 2014 until present.
