Nearly 1000 homes sold under $200,000, but only 290 homes sold above $200,000 all the way up as high as prices go. ERA Realty Center agents sold more than any other office, which has been the case for many years.

foreclosures: REALTORS Can Make Reality of Your Realty Dreams! Find yours! - 09/25/13 07:53 AM
Real Estate Dreams can come true in this real estate market!  It is fun watching people finding bargains with great loans and wonderfully low interest rates and affordable monthly payments.  It is a great time to be selling homes and watching people succeed in reaching their home buying goals.  It makes a REALTOR happy to be part of someone's dream come true!

foreclosures: How Can Your Buyer Find Your Home And Buy It If It Isn't Listed? - 07/16/13 01:57 PM
Where did all the houses go?  Sellers thinking they can sell their home later for more money later may be surprised.  As interest rates rise, prices may just turn around and go the other way. No one knows for sure which way prices or rates will go.  I believe sellers should sell when they want to sell.  I have been a REALTOR for nearly 30 years, and now seems like a good time to sell to me while buyers want to buy!  
The inventory is indeed low for homes under $150,000 in the Cedar City, UT, area. We are seeing … (3 comments)

foreclosures: Closed Home Sales Up; Median Price Up; Inventory Down! - 01/15/13 11:15 AM
What are buyers waiting for?  I believe the real estate market has already turned around in the Iron County area for median price homes. Recent UAR statistics seem to indicate that it would have been better to purchase a few months back. It may be a little late to go back in time, but I believe this is a great time to get a fantastic deal on your home while many bargains can still be found and interest rates are so low that monthly payments can be low and less than rent in many cases. 
Buyers in our real estate market … (1 comments)

foreclosures: YES! Homes Sell Even When The Holidays And Icy Weather Are Here! - 12/11/12 07:12 AM
Contrary to popular opinion, winter is a good time to sell your home!
It has been my experience in the last 28 years that many homes have sold during wintertime, making both buyers and sellers happy with their successful real estate moves. 
Luckily, no one told me to stop listing and selling real estate just because it was cold outside.  I was thrilled when I got my picture in the local newspaper as a top producer toward the end of my first year as a real estate agent in 1984. Happily, gratefully and successfully, I have continued to work hard in all seasons for many years.
Buyers touring homes in wintertime are serious. They … (1 comments)

foreclosures: I Believe Real Estate Designations Make A Difference, But Do Buyers and Sellers? - 11/30/12 12:17 PM
When I earned my real estate license in January of 1984, I was told that was just the beginning.  I learned I would need to learn much more to be a good agent.  I was encouraged to, "sharpen the saw" by my broker, which means get more training to be skilled and effective.  As a result, like many agents who care, I have spent many years gathering knowledge, receiving training and learning much.  I have attended ERA Realty Center's training on Wednesdays.  I took ERA's basic training and also the Topgun training for experienced agents.  I have been to numerous conventions … (0 comments)

foreclosures: The Election Is Decided. Let's Now Band Together As Americans! - 11/07/12 12:38 AM
I have heard already this morning from people excited about the election results and from people who are sad.  I find myself going back in time many years to grade school when one of my teachers said that the important thing is for Americans to band together and support each other and America after an election.  I believe this is good advice for all of us every day.
Whatever our stand before the election, now is the time to be good Americans working for the best good of all America. 
My mother used to say, "A man convinced against his will … (1 comments)

"Who buys in the fall?"  "The Fall Selling Season" survey completed by ERA Real Estate shows that "The higher ratio goes to first-time homebuyers and childless couples" at 27%.  The rest of the pie is divided as follows with 20% being Move-up buyers, 17% Downsizing & Retiring Buyers, 14% investors, 11% Military relocations, 6% Vacation buyers and 5% other.
The article says, "Blame it on the traditional school year engraved in our minds since childhood, but many people see Labor Day as the beginning of a new year.  Summer holidays are over and everyone goes back to school or buckles down … (0 comments)

foreclosures: Foreclosures, Short sales and Bargain-Priced Homes Are Attracting Buyers! - 09/10/12 09:54 AM
At one of ERA Realty Center's office meeting recently, the real estate agents discussed the real estate market in the Cedar City, UT, area.  We have more buyers, less homes for sale, lower interest rates and lower prices.  No wonder we are getting multiple offers on homes under $150,000! 
Buyers can own their home for less than rent in many cases.  Supply and Demand should turn this market right around soon.  Maybe the homes in the lower price ranges are already experiencing a seller's market!  We are seeing buyers pay more than list price and more than appraisal to win their home over the … (1 comments)
