COVID-19, to simply state, has forced us to make drastic changes in our normal lives. In addition to social distancing and wearing masks, many people are now working from home indefinitely and families have chosen to home-school their children. Dining rooms have been converted into home offices, bedrooms are now classrooms, garages resemble home gyms, and yards are make-shift gyms. Finding dual purpose for rooms, that were once our sanctuaries or private spaces, tested our creativity and imagination. In doing all of that, homeowners did get creative and across the US, we saw more home improvement projects both inside and out. We also saw home "wish lists" change and more buyers wanting bigger yards and different floorplans. A recent survey from…
Daybreak has been deemed #5 in the U.S. for Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities of Mid-Year 2020! Year to date new home sales in Daybreak are up 40%! All this despite living through a pandemic. New home sales did have a small hit in March and April as stay-at-home orders we implemented. However as restrictions lifted there was a sudden surge of demand in home sales.
Communities, like Daybreak, that are able to offer a variety of housing options and different price points continues to be key for growth in these master planned communities. Low inventory coupled with high demand keep builders and development busy expanding these areas.

There are numerous considerations to keep in mind when you’re searching for a home, both interior and exterior. For those who enjoy gardening, landscaping and other outdoor tasks, one particular area to look into when browsing properties: Is the lawn fake or real? At Daybreak Living, our real estate agents will help you find homes for sale based on any variety of specific needs, including lawn or outdoor elements. When we use the term “fake” lawn, we’re generally referring to synthetic grass that’s made to look and feel extremely similar to natural grass. It’s often used for play areas, putting greens, dog runs or several other specific purposes. Let’s go over some of the general pros and cons found in synthetic grass, plus whether a home featuring it…

Have you ever wanted to buy a home but aren't quite seeing eye to eye with your partner? Often times priorities can be different but here's a great way to convince your partner that the home you want is the best choice for both of you. Just remember: "shopping math is different than regular math!"
Can't argue with that logic!
Its coming soon! Highland Park is going to be the first village that crosses West over the Mountain View Corridor.
This is pretty exciting as people that live here will have awesome access to the Corridor/Trax/Shopping! This village is also slated to have its very own Community Pool and Cafe. As always in developments, things that aren't built can change so we live by the motto.....nothing is set in stone until it's built.
The builders slated for this community will be Sego, Destination, David Weekley, Holmes Homes, and Fieldstone Homes. The new model home village should have about 15 homes that the public can tour and check out. Sego and Destination will be building townhomes while the biggest lots up to .17 acre will be Fieldstone homes or…

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…
