The Salt Lake City homebuyer today wants it all!
Just a few of the items today's Salt Lake City real estate homebuyer is seeking: a home for sale in great condition with rooms that can do double duty. Areas that mingle indoor and outdoor living -- patios, porches, decks and outdoor rooms -- are always a plus. And so are those features that offer a little luxury, like garden spa-like tubs, first-rate appliances and high-end countertops.
They're also going back to basics: searching for solid, well-maintained Draper properties that will give them their money's worth.
But more than anything, buyers want to drive a hard bargain.
They want a "steal of a deal" and no matter where a seller prices their property, buyers are still looking to negotiate.
The following 9 items are hot ticket items for buyers this year:
1) HOMES THAT ARE WELL MAINTAINED.
The attitude of today's Utah home buyer is, "I'd rather spend the money getting into the house, then more money later to get it up to par." Buyers aren't wanting unknown expenses looming over their heads.
Few Salt Lake City homebuyers today are wanting complete "fixer-uppers."
One reason for this is that buyers have limited amounts of cash. Even if they want to buy and remodel a fixer-upper, they just don't have the capital to do it and long gone are the days that lenders made it easy for buyers to get "cash out" at closing to complete these kinds of properties.
