How Do You Know Which Real Estate Agent Has Better Marketing and Results? 

 

If you bump into any real estate agent, they are bound to tell you how good the market is today, and how they have sold homes in day or so. Maybe even a friend or neighbor will tell you their own story.  Even in a great market your results from your home sale differ though! 

The difference may be in price, concessions, inspection negotiations, days on market, if there are appraisal or loan issues or even in just handling the overall transaction smoothly.  Some of these differences will go by unnoticed to the seller.  So how do you really know you are going to get the best results?  In Daybreak there have been 461 new homes listed on the market.  Only 181 have sold so

FHA loan limits have increased! The FHA loan limits went from $304,500 to $312,800 in Salt Lake County. What dose this mean to buyers and sellers? If you buy in Salt Lake County with an FHA loan purchase price (typically putting down 3.5%) this makes your ​purchase power increase from last year approximately $8,000.

Something for Sellers to keep in mind: if you list your home for $325,000-$440,000 you are only making your home available to buyers that are able to put 5% down (this price range is above the 3.5% down FHA limit). However;  if you list at $325,000 you then add a plethora of buyers to your purchasing pool by including 5% down buyers AND 3.5% down buyers. This makes your home an option for many more buyers and your ability to sell that

More people means more houses and more cars with a limited area of land. When it comes to housing most Utahns feel like high density housing is the solution.

Tomorrow's population issues are already being addressed today and the market is reacting. We are seeing smaller lots for single family homes and more apartment complexes developing with low vacancies. There has also been a demand for more dense neighborhoods designed for walk-ability and public transit. Residents have stated that these features are essential in keeping future housing and transportation

--UPDATE-- As discussed by Dana Allenthis has passed the Senate but is not law yet. "While the Senate voted to accept the amendment...the Senate has not yet voted on the amended bill itself, which deals with a range of issues from extending unemployment benefits to Medicare funding." (Inman News, June, 2010).

Good news for home buyers already under contract.

The Associated Press just released information that the Senate has approved an extension of the tax credit. However, this extension only helps those already under contract.

We've been scrambling trying to get everyone who is under contract closed by the June 30th deadline. Apparently we are not the only ones. Apparently there is an estimated 180,000 homebuyers currently under contract that
