Home For the Holidays! - 12/21/10 06:57 PM
This time of year we usually notice a slowdown in the Cedar City real estate market as people prepare for the holidays. This year we are still very very busy selling homes! That's not a complaint! We are thankful! My assistant, Matt, is working with a buyer right now as I blog! My assistant, Susan, is working on a sale in progress that I will be attending the closing on Thursday. My assistant, Jennifer Corral, is working on a Broker Price Opinion (BPO) for a foreclosed home that we are listing! That's all productive and excellent! What is keeping the buyers attraction this winter (1 comments)

Real Estate Home Mortgage Interest Rates On The Rise! - 12/16/10 04:30 PM
I spoke to Morgan at MGM Financial today and learned the rumor is true that interest rates rose from approximately 4 1/2 % last week to 5% today. This is on a 30-year conventional loan with 20% down. We've all known that interest rates couldn't stay that low forever, but we were hoping they would anyway. 5% is still a great rate! Buyers, take advantage of that low rate! Let's hope they don't go up anymore! I was thinking back to the early 80's when I got my real estate license. Interest rates were near the 20% level. ERA Realty Center had a celebration (0 comments)
Short Sale Success For No Deficiency On Home In Utah! - 12/13/10 07:44 PM
Utah is one of the states that allows deficiency judgments. Recently, one of our sellers held out and would not close unless the Bank put in writing that they would not go after the seller for the deficiency. Even though the deadline for closing was past; and the seller realized they were risking losing the short sale, they held out and won! The bank did put in writing that the the short sale paid the note in full! Success! Whether buying or selling, please call Janet Naisbitt-Bagley for help with all of your real estate needs at 435-865-1019 or email email@example.com. You (2 comments)
Short Sale Woes Can Sometimes Be Overcome With a Happy Home Buyer! - 12/10/10 06:36 PM
Short Sales turn some buyers away. Other buyers are patient, stick it out, close and move into their new happy home! Buying a short sale may make some buyer's dreams come true, so it's worth considering. In most cases, fast sales are not an option with a short sale. Therefore, if you want to move into a home quickly like before Christmas, try another home. Sellers do need to check with professionals such as accountants and attorneys regarding the pitfalls and make sure they are comfortable. If they decide it is important to them to avoid foreclosure, their home may be just (2 comments)
If You Want The Home, Accept The Counter! - 12/08/10 08:26 PM
Foreclosed homes in the Cedar City, Utah, area are typically priced right and sell quickly. It may be a buyer's market, but don't count on the home sitting around and waiting for you to buy it! We often get multiple offers on our lower priced homes! Recently, one of our buyers made an offer on a foreclosed home that was countered by the bank. There were 3 to 5 other buyers interested in the home. If the buyer accepts, they move forward to a happy closing. A counter from the buyer typically opens the field for offers to come in from the other buyers. (0 comments)
Cedar City Area Real Estate: Number Of Closed Home Sales Are UP 18.5%! - 12/03/10 06:38 PM
The Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) recently published the October 2010 Local Market Updates for Utah. Iron County is doing well. Home sales in October of 2010 are up 11.5% over October 2009. Year to date (YTD) home sale statistics are even better and are up 18.5%! The median price range, however, has dropped YTD from $149,500 to $132,000. I believe that indicates the trend of our market here. More buyers are purchasing homes, but they are very conservative and are serious bargain-shoppers. I totally believe this is a great time to buy homes while prices and rates are affordable! Please (0 comments)
