I hear there is a legislative session being called to evaluate a new Utah grant  for new construction real estate that may apply to homes not completed yet!  Since the current grant money is more than half gone, that would be incredibly good news!  Don't you agree?  What have you heard?

cedar city: To Blog Or Not To Blog? Does It Really Help Clients With Real Estate ?s? - 05/21/09 02:58 PM
I'm new to the blogging world!  My goal with writing my blogs is to be either informative or helpful.  How do I know if I'm succeeding?  I'd like to get more comments, so I'd know if anyone is reading the blog.  How do I do that? 
Since I spend lots of time on each blog, it would be really nice to know if people read it even though they don't comment.  Please let meknow if you have any idea whether blogging gets out there or if it just sits on Active Rain.

cedar city: Happy 93rd Birthday, Mom; I'm still selling Real Estate! - 05/08/09 10:23 PM
Time to think back 25 years to my parents loaning me the money to get my real estate license!  Time flies, and it's been a very rewarding and successful career!  Time to think back over 50 years to the time that I used to help Dad and Mom send out real estate flyers! 
My dad, Allen H. Barber, was a real estate broker, developer, subdivider, contractor and sold Preferred Risk Insurance in Bountiful, Utah.  Mom helped him in the office and wrote down stuff that he'd think of in the middle of the night.  He told me to be successful I'd need to think, … (1 comments)

cedar city: BE AWARE: There's More To Real Estate Bargains Than Foreclosures! - 05/04/09 12:11 PM
I continue to get calls for lists of foreclosures and short sales, which I am happy to provide!  Please understand, however, that buyers are limiting both the quality and number of bargain-priced homes from which to choose if they just see foreclosures and short sales.  There are many sellers who purchased before the hot market that can compete very well with the prices of the foreclosures and short sales.  There are also sellers of new construction such as Hidden Hills Cove and Equestrian Pt. homes that are starting under $200,000 for gorgeous new homes with home warranties that are priced to compete with the … (0 comments)

cedar city: Much To Be Grateful For According To Women's Conference! - 05/01/09 08:30 PM

The consensus of the conference, in my opinion, is that even in troubled times with economic and financial trials, we have much to be grateful for!  The way to happiness is to count your blessings instead of your problems in order to have more energy to be and do whatever it takes to succeed … (2 comments)

I just got back from a wonderful trip with children and grandchildren!  It was great riding on rides and keeping grandchildren entertained that were not quite tall enough to ride even with the highest shoes the parents could find!  I brought a fanny pack full of fruit leather and puppets, and we all had a great time--both riders and nonriders!

cedar city: Have You Ever Thought About Being A Licensed Real Estate Assistant? - 04/10/09 05:02 PM
I was thinking today that in this market of too many real estate agents for the amount of work available, being a licensed assistant of a well-established REALTOR is a great way to go!  I do have 3 licensed assistants and am wondering if they realize how lucky they are to have a steady influx of cash. 
What do you think?  Is it better to be on your own in a market like this or work with a team? I'd love to hear your opinion. 
If any REALTORS read this that have assistants, would you rather be an assistant in this market … (1 comments)

cedar city: Let's end foreclosures In The Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate Market! - 04/08/09 07:19 PM
How?  There are lots of ways: 
1.  Try refinancing to get a longer term and lower interest if you want to keep your home! 
2.   Ask me about doing a short-sale if you want to sell your home.  If you owe more than you can sell for and you have a hardship type reason that makes you unable to make the payment, many lenders will consider a short-sale.  That means they accept less than what you owe.  Please call Janet's team at 435-865-1019 if you'd like a short-sale package to fill out and submit to your lender including a sample. 
3.  Many lenders … (0 comments)

cedar city: Little Things Really Aren't Big! Instead, Count Your Blessings! - 04/07/09 02:56 PM
Sometimes I find myself stuck on little issues that come up.  Are you that way?  The last few days I have been selling Cedar City, UT, real estate while spending time with my daughter, her husband, Bruce, and my 6 wonderful and practically perfect grandchildren from Syracuse, Utah.  While we were talking, something came up that really was not a big issue at all.  I admit that I was starting to stress.  My daughter reminded me not to worry about little things.  I've heard that before, haven't you?  I believe the phrase that applies here is, "Don't sweat the small stuff."
I believe … (0 comments)

cedar city: Low Rates, Low Prices, $8,000 Tax Credit & $6,000 Grant= More Sales Activity - 03/24/09 05:25 PM
I was talking to the agent for one of the townhome projects here in Cedar City, Utah, and she said my buyer made the first offer and is planning to close in a few days.  They have 2 more under contract, and they have 2 more buyers in the wings that are contemplating making offers.  My buyer's friend is also thinking of buying one of these charming townhomes.  In all, that would fill the building!  I would say that's quite an increase in sales since these 2 incentives came available.  Wouldn't you agree?
I believe all of these buyers are planning to … (1 comments)

cedar city: $20,000 In Discounts May be Available If You Meet The Criteria! - 03/23/09 08:36 PM
NEWS BULLETIN:  Son Builders at Hidden Hills Cove Subdivision will match the $6,000 incentive from Utah Home Run Grant for new construction.  What do they mean?  If you purchase one of the 2 gorgeous new homes in Hidden Hills Cove Subdivision and close in the next 90 days, Son Builders will give a $6,000 credit towards closing costs for buyers or upgrades. 
Where is the $20,000?  The stimulus package has $8,000 tax credit for first time buyers who meet the criteria.  With the State's grant for new construction of $6,000 and Son Builders' $6,000 and the $8,000 from the stimulus package, that's … (0 comments)

cedar city: Is There Or Is There Not $6,000 For New Construction? - 03/19/09 07:40 PM
Recently both Kent Reid and Tim Prindle from MGM Funding sent me exciting news of a possible $6,000 grant to buyers purchasing new construction homes in the State of Utah.
I walked into my office at ERA Realty Center this morning to a flurry of discussion as to whether or not the governor had signed the "Utah Home Run Grant" program yet.  One lender said yes.  Two lenders said no.  I assume the answer was that it could happen any minute but hasn't happened yet, 
Has anyone heard if the governor signed it today or what the schedule is for signature?  Please let me know.  I … (0 comments)

cedar city: Real Estate Market is feeling the effects of The $8,000 Tax Credit Benefit - 03/14/09 09:49 PM
Cedar City, UT, Real Estate News Update:
I received an email today from Tim Prindle at MGM Funding.  He wanted to remind me of the tax credit that is a very important part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  He said this credit is easy to offset the 3.5% downpayment requirement for FHA.  Here is the verbiage from Tim again:
"First-time homebuyers who purchase homes from the start of the year until the end of November 2009 may be eligible for the lower of an $8,000 or 10% of the value of the home tax credit.  Remember a tax … (1 comments)

My son in law heard on the news that Utah has too many new homes, and Utah is offering some buyers a $6,000 credit for buying new construction homes.  I have no idea who to call to check this out, but I need to hurry because it's only for the first 1600 buyers if this is true.  I did hear today that it's a Utah Housing offer, and people would need to get a Utah Housing loan to benefit from it and that the money has to be paid back at the end.  I also heard that it is used as the … (0 comments)
