"What doesn't make it appealing there is just so much going on."

As local real estate agents express, when it comes to Sun Valley instead of asking what the resort town has to offer, the better question may be, what doesn't it have?

Publisher at Sun Valley Property News Justin Williams explains, "The skiing, the summer recreation– It's amazing but there is much more to it than that. We have some of the best schools here. We've got a first class health service; we've got a very thriving restaurant and art scene."

As the economy improves, homeowners need less convincing to buy property in the lavish area.

Suzanne Williams with Sun Valley Real Estate explains, "We had trouble in the down time but we've seen a resurgence in the last couple years and more and more people are coming back to the market."

The property at 86 Gimlet Road is the highest priced home on the market, being offered for 21.5 million dollars.

Suzanne notes, "this is a compound that is going to appeal to someone who wants to relax and have everything at their fingertips."

The 13 acre compound includes an antique Irish pub, pool, hot tub, and tennis courts.

Other properties look to spotlight the close proximity to skiing and hiking, including listings at Elevation 6000.

Barbara Syrdal with Windermere Sun Valley notes the houses have, "semi-precious stones in the concrete, heated floors, soaring ceilings, you're close to town, it's quiet, it's peaceful."

While it may be hard to agree which home to choose, residents and realtors alike can agree on one thing:
As Justin points out, "I think we've been really happy watching the way the property market has recovered over the last three years. There is still a long way to go but we're seeing some great signs of recovery."
