There are also additional costs associated with purchasing a home such as mortgage loan costs, appraisal, etc that our lender can help you understand everything that is included in the financial decision you are making.

Spring is just around the corner and the real estate market, along with the temperature outside, is starting to heat up.If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, we’re going to give you our top 10 tips on how to lure in more buyers and to getting it done quickly for the highest dollar amount.

1. Hire a Pro!  This is the most important step. A top Realtor knows the market and can assess your home’s value and get it priced right to bring in multiple offers, which will drive the price up even more!

  • Double check your roof to make sure the shingles are in good repair. Including all flashings, gutters, soffit and fascia, and chimney components. Our Utah winters can really do a number on the exterior of our homes.

People are always asking me when the real estate bubble is going to burst. Every week it seems like there are new announcements of big companies expanding, or relocating to the area. Whether it's Amazon's $200 million facility and 1500 new jobs, or this latest announcement that Adobe is doubling their Lehi facility with 1300 new jobs.

Adobe Lehi, Utah

If you're waiting for the market to "come down" before buying a house, you're missing the boat. Increasing values are the new norm and I really don't see a repeat of 2008-2011. Conditions are significantly different today than they were back then.  Are you hearing about many people getting into Adjustable Rate Mortgages, stated income loans, or sub-prime mortgages?  Yeah, me neither.  Utah's unemployment rate is the…

The summer selling season is still in full swing. Buyers are out and about and ready to write offers. The low end of the market ($250k and below) is still on fire. Average days on market in Utah for a home below $250k is in the teens. Homes are selling very well. 

The mid price ranges ($250k-$500k) are also performing well with an average days on market of 21 days.  The upper price ranges above $500k are still selling as well, but sellers just need to get more competitive on their asking prices in this range.

One of them was this Lehi home that had five offers in the first week.  It sold for several thousands of dollars above asking…

Is Now A Good Time To Buy A Home? The truth is, this is the wrong question to ask.... I think the better question is, does it make sense for me, in my current situation, to buy a home?

We believe that regardless of season or market trends determining a good time to buy can vary based on a variety of factors.

Do You Have The Money?

Buyers need to know if they comfortably pay for a mortgage, homeowners insurance, homeowners association fees, and taxes. We recommend that you contact a loan officer to get a preapproved for a Mortgage. They can lay out your options and help you determine what you can comfortably afford. Many professionals recommend that housing costs never exceed more than 28% of gross income and your total debt should be less than…
