Highland Park Village - Coming 2017

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

I'm sure you have noticed the dropping temperatures. Protecting your home against cold weather can prevent costly damage, reduce your monthly heating costs, and increase the value of your home. There are many things you should do before the big freeze hits. Here are some valuable tips you can use this Fall to prepare for winter temperatures. For the Yard:

  • Clear debris from exterior walkways, decks, and steps. When winter hits you don't want to be shoveling up leaves and debris with the snow.
  • Use fall leaves as mulch for your lawn. As the leaves start to fall consider mowing them into mulch instead of raking them into bags. These mulched leaves can provide nutrients for the soil during the winter to help your lawn next spring.

Are you thinking about buying a home in Utah? When it comes to great economic health, real estate is the "juice" of our economy. Everything moves together and feeds off each other. When the job market is on top of its game, that leads to more investment in construction, which provides jobs to construction companies, lumber, and other building material companies, real estate agents, and people who can finally afford to buy a home.

I want to let you in on a secret. In the real estate market, we are seeing something that happened in 2005 that had a big impact on the housing market.

I recently found out about several companies outside of Utah that are buying a lot of homes in Utah. There is one company buying as many as 60 homes a month right now. Another company is planning on buying 30 a month. This is just 2 of the companies coming to Utah. These companies may have a huge impact on the Utah market.

What does that mean for the housing market in Utah? All of these homes being purchased are under $300,000. That means that suddenly 10% of home purchases will be investors. If you've looked at the market you've seen that supply is already limited. This new surge of investor

Current Situation…and the CRYSTAL BALL for the future

A week ago we were talking in our office about demand. We have been watching ‘pending’ home sales decline and decline. This is typical during this time of year. Generally 1rst quarter after 4th quarter is where it bottoms out. So we thought, when was the last time home sales have been this low? We can’t find data that goes back that far. We speculated it must be as far back as the 1980′s. It also seems like the demand should be there to buy homes, but where are the buyers? We speculated as well that the demand is there and that it would arise soon. Im not an economist (Im a salesperson, I sell real estate not analyze numbers, we are diffrent breeds) and I dont have the data they do, so I looked
