realtor: Thanksgiving Should Last A Lifetime If We Want Happiness as Real Estate Agents! - 11/29/13 06:36 AM
It doesn't matter what we do in life, we are happier if our cup is half full rather than half empty. It is the same situation, but the outcome is either to feel great when we are looking at the half full or bright side or to feel down and depressed When we only look at the negative side. 
Recently, I saw a cartoon with two fish swimming in a bowl that was only half full Of water. One fish said to the other, "I like to think of my bowl as half full rather than half empty."  I love it! … (1 comments)

realtor: Naisbitt-Bagley May 2013 Newsletter - 05/28/13 05:00 AM
Naisbitt-Bagley Team May Newsletter
According to the attached recent Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) "Local Market Updates by County," Iron County sales year to date are down 11.6% as compared to the same time last year.  I believe this may be due to the lack of inventory in this market rather than to the lack of buyer.
With the decrease in inventory, sometimes nice homes that are priced right will attract more than one buyer. Even though there are several buyers wanting a home, only one wins.  Therefore, only one sale occurs and one closing. The … (0 comments)

realtor: 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)

realtor: Home Mortgage Rates Improve - 05/06/11 12:20 PM
Kent Reid of MGM Funding sent the following Mortgage Market News for the week ending May 6, 2011.  With his permission, let me quote, "Weaker than expected data helped mortgage rates improve for most of the week, but Friday's Employment report then surprised to the upside, causing mortgage rates to give back some of the improvement. In the end, as they have for each of the last few weeks, mortgage rates finished the week a little lower."
Who knows when rates will rise as people keep expecting them to do.  For now, we do know that they are affordable and prices … (0 comments)

realtor: Are Short Sales And Foreclosures Drying Up? - 02/26/10 04:54 PM
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 quite as nice as they were awhile back.  He thinks that more sellers are holding onto the nice homes but still letting go of the problematic homes.  I handle a huge % of the foreclosures in our arera, and I believe that there is some substance to … (6 comments)

realtor: Cedar City REALTORs Sold More Homes In 2009, But Market Prices Dipped! - 01/26/10 04:46 PM
I hope and pray that prices don't dip anymore!  I keep thinking that for sure this is the bottom.  Then prices dive again.  Then I find myself thinking again that this has got to be the bottom.  I really believe we have hit bottom, and the only way to go is up.  Don't you agree?
One thing this real estate market has taught me is that no one can predict the top or bottom of any market.  That's why I'm hanging onto my real estate!  I know it will go back up again; and in the meantime, I still have my real estate!  It … (3 comments)

realtor: R U Happy About The Tax Credit Extension and Addition For Home Owners? - 11/16/09 01:02 PM
I've heard lots of controversy on both sides for and against the up to $8,000 tax credit extension for home buyers who haven't owned a home in the last 3 years.  Back and forth; back and forth!  I've also heard pros and cons for the addition of current home owners who have owned their home 5 out of the last 8 years.  How about you? What do you think? Let's vote!  For?  Against?
I figure it really doesn't matter whether I agree thoroughly or don't agree at all.  It's here. 
I just hope buyers don't wait until the last minute to take advantage of … (2 comments)

realtor: How Did November Get Here Already? Let's Be Grateful for Real Estate! - 11/02/09 06:06 AM
Trick or treaters have gone and somehow November rushed in to take its place!  I love November and Thanksgiving and couldn't help but feel joyful as I crunched leaves walking to the office this morning!  I love crunching leaves!  Just a few days ago I was thinking how much fun it is to crunch snow!  Soon, I'll enjoy breaking layers of thin ice!  I do love the 4 seasons we enjoy here in Cedar City, Utah. 
Speaking of time, It's a great time to buy real estate while there is a crisp, cool feeling in the air! Interest rates are low and so are prices.  Great … (1 comments)

realtor: Do We Or Don't We Have An Extension For the $8,000 Tax Credit For Homes? - 10/30/09 11:58 AM
What about the extension for the up to $8,000 tax credit for first time buyers?  Do we have it for sure?  I keep hearing we do, and then I hear we don't.  Then I hear we almost do.  My mom taught me a miss is as good as a mile, so I still have no idea.  Please tell me; who knows? 
If we have it or get it, my concern is that people will think they can wait to buy until next April 2010.  Right now there are people scrambling to buy to meet the end of November deadline.  Some will … (1 comments)
