It's not surprising that buyers are having a hard time finding the perfect Sun Valley home. Across the entire Sun Valley MLS, the inventory of single-family homes is down 12.4% over August of 2016.
The inventory breakdown by city is:
Hailey home inventory is down a dramatic 15.4% over this time last year
Ketchum is down 10.3%
Sun Valley (including Elkhorn) is down 14.4%
Bellevue is down 4.6%. *
Perhaps it's time to build? Below are a few really great vacant lot options across all price points. I'll start in the North Valley in Warm Springs and then head south.

407 Juniper Road, Elkhorn at Sun Valley - $530,000
Here's what I like about 407 Juniper Drive in Elkhorn:
Do you like the big sunny sky and views in Elkhorn? If so, here's a beautiful, flat lot with the craggy Boulder Mountains and the surrounding hillsides as a panaramic setting.
BTW: The seller will provide a Man Lift for serious buyers who want to see the panoramic Boulder Mountain views from a second story.
This lot is almost an acre on a quiet dead-end street with 360 views and secluded by willows.
The seasonal Willow Creek flows through this high-end neighborhood.
Enjoy the Elkhorn amenities: pools, tennis courts, clubhouse and more! If you want more detail on Elkhorn in Sun Valley please visit ElkhornInSunValley.com
The lot is almost two acres of panoramic views and great sun exposure in desirable East Fork.
This lot is level for ease of building and there are views of the tree-lined ridges in three directions.
The neighborhood consists of custom homes and plenty of open space.
East Fork is mountain biking & hiking Mecca located just 6 miles from the Sun Valley ski lifts.
Wildlife abounds in this rural setting.
Horse are allowed.
Full Disclosure: We've lived in two different homes in East Fork over the past 27 years. I think it's the best place for peace and tranquility with quick access to the Sawtooth National Forest or anything the towns of Ketchum and Hailey have to offer. And it's a quick right-hand turn to get to the ski lifts on a powder day.
1246 Buttercup Road in Hailey - $239,500
Here's what I like about 1246 Buttercup Road:
This flat, sunny, one-acre lot with big views of Carbonate Ridge is private and includes excellent water rights with a priority date of 3/24/1883.
Irrigate the entire acre (yes, horses allowed) or create a tranquil habitat with a pond.
Located across from the bike path, it's a quick ride to the Power House restaurant or the Farmer's Market. Live rural, shop and dine urban. Or as urban as Hailey gets!
The lot is close to mountain biking and hiking in Croy or Quigley.
