Real Estate Agent - ERA Realty Center
My website, blogs, TV and radio shows are planned to educate the public. I have several informative links from my website including a DVD with a tour of Cedar City. My goal is to provide top service and links and articles that will give beneficial information regarding real estate.



I spoke to an appraiser in our area recently who says it's too soon to tell, but he's seeing some good signs.  He watches the Notices of Default constantly and the foreclosures as they come on the market.  He mentioned that it seems to him that the homes being foreclosed now on average are not qu...
I was talking to a buyer recently who was looking for a lease option.  Since there are many homes on the market such as foreclosures, short sales, bargains, new construction, etc., and only a very few who will consider lease options, I asked why this buyer wanted to wait to buy.  I was told that ...
It's nearly midnight in Cedar City, Utah, which is on Mountain Time!  You'd think I'd be asleep already at least an hour ago.  No!  Not me!  I'm in here blogging again.  Why?  I couldn't resist!  Does this mean I've become addicted to blogging?  It is kind of fun to just put down your thoughts.  ...

I spoke to a local appraiser yesterday about a customer of mine who wants to make really low offers on lots of foreclosures at 55 to 70 cents on the dollar.  Banks are just not accepting low offers like that in our Cedar City Area Real Estate Market.  The appraiser said I should let this buyer kn...
Since Valentines Day was Sunday, I took it off!  Once again, that's one of my favorite commandments to rest one day out of seven.  It was wonderful to spend the day celebrating love by going to Church and spending time with my husband.  I called the children the day before because I wanted them t...
I was just talking to some of the real estate agents in our office about whether we are taking Presidents day off of our real estate selling time schedule.  Of course, it's a given that we'll be taking Valentines Day off because that's Sunday.  Cedar City people like to take Sundays off for a day...
I believe I blogged awhile back about how excited I am that more homes sold in Cedar City in 2009 than in 2008.  I just received the Utah Association of REALTORS 2009 Fourth Quarter Market Statistics--Year-Over-Year Comparison.  Iron County statistics show that in 4th quarter of 2008, only 115 ho...
