Daybreak is one of our favorite places to sell homes! In fact many of our Realtors not only specialize in the area but they also live in Daybreak. The Daybreak community was ranked as one of the bestselling master planned communities in the United States for 2015 by real estate advisory firm RCLCO (Robert Charles Lesser & Co., LLC) and John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
In 2015, 415 homes were sold in Daybreak, which resulted in a 23 percent increase over 2014. Dave Robison and Julie Holmes were the Top New Realtor Home Sales in Daybreak for 2015. Since the beginning of January 2016, an amazing 67 homes have been sold. We are off to a robust start this year!

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…
