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…
A new elementary school in Daybreak's Creekside Village is anticipated to open in the fall of 2017. Construction begins in the Spring of next year. The school will be located at approximately 10200 S and Kestrel Rise Rd. The Jordan School District is also slated to build a middle school on the same plat of land in coming years. The development of these schools are exciting news for current and future Daybreak residents. Building schools is a step in the right direction for the creation of more walkable neighborhoods within the community.
With South Jordan being ranked as one of the nation's fastest growing cities according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the promise of new schools is not only a convenience but also a necessary response to the growing…
What not to ask when selling your home: "What is my home worth?" or "What will my home appraise for?" This is not the right way to understand the value of your home. An appraisal is an estimate of value or to put it more simply; one person's opinion of the value of your home. As we all know that opinion is not necessarily fact, it's important to know that there is no such thing as an absolute number that your home is worth
Here's what happened to one seller of mine. The buyer's appraisal of their home came in $70,000 below list price. Yikes! After hiring 3 different appraisers on the same house all 3 came back with very different "opinions" of value. After 2 weeks of convincing the banks, the buyers, and the REALTORS, I was able to sell the home for…
There is a trend in the housing market and it has been going for 12 consecutive months! What is it? Increasing home prices. That's right, for the past year each month has had higher home prices than the previous year.
How much? The average single-family home price in Salt Lake County has increased 20% from last year. That brings the median price up to $228,750 (compared to last year's $192,500). Salt Lake County isn't the only one seeing this increase! Davis County had a 12% increase, along with Utah and Weber counties which each had double digit increases.
What does this increase mean for you? If you're thinking about selling your home this is great news. Low inventory is one of the driving factors of increasing home prices. You can capitalize on…

Where to Sell a Home in Utah this October!
You've heard that it's a buyer's market. This can be an advantage if you are selling your home. If you live in one of these Hot Spots, demand is higher in your area. You’ll be able to sell your home for top dollar. Then you can take advantage of the great deals available elsewhere as a buyer. The lower interest rates give you more buying power. If you live in a hot spot, now is the time to list your home.
Utah’s Hot Spots are the zip codes and prices ranges that had the most demand last month. Economic improvement and recovery start in hot spots and then spread to other areas of the valley. Purchasing a home in one of these hot spots gives you a front row seat to economic recovery.
