salt lake city real estate: June HotSpots to Sell a Home - 06/09/11 02:47 PM
What are home buyers saying right now? The same things they were saying back in 2004 and 2005 before the boom. They complain that the home inventory is low meaning there aren't enough choices for them. They also are noticing that all the good homes are getting multiple offers. I interpret this as a good indication that NOW is a prime time to sell your home. It is ESPECIALLY good timing for you if you live in a home that buyers want. You can be one of those 'good homes' that the buyers fight over. How can you know if buyers (2 comments)

salt lake city real estate: Spring Harvest - 04/05/11 03:26 PM
As the weather warms up I've noticed a lot of talk about gardening and planting. In gardening you plant in the Spring and harvest in the Fall. It made me think, when is the harvest in real estate? Reviewing the statistics from past few years suggests that Spring is the time to harvest! I've highlighted the spring months since 2008 so you can easily see the harvest!
There were a few tax-credit anomolies during these past few years which have skewed the sales for these years, but you can still see the success of the Spring months. You can see, even without the tax credits, this pattern repeats itself. Here is a (3 comments)
salt lake city real estate: Should You Sell This December? - 12/02/10 05:28 PM
Location is still the paramount law in real estate. Knowing when to sell your home requires careful examination of the local market in your neighborhood. As a local real estate professional I monitor which neighborhoods have high demand so you can be aware when the timing is right to sell your home.
We track where homes are sold, where homes are listed, and where buyers want to buy. With these statistics I have selected the top 5 areas for selling a home in December. If you live in one of these areas, now is the time to sell!

salt lake city real estate: Today's Market versus Past Years - 05/26/10 03:01 PM
Viewing statistics is vital to predicting Real Estate trends. I keep track of how many homes are being sold across the Wasatch Front to stay informed for my friends and clients. There are many other factors affecting the Real Estate industry, but this is a quick way to glimpse market changes. Homes prices are driven by how many homes are being sold. When there is a considerable increase in demand prices and values go up. These graphs and statistics show how many homes have been sold each month for the past 3 years. You can clearly see the bottom of the (0 comments)
