short sales: Have A Great Weekend--Hopefully Buying Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate! - 06/19/09 06:29 PM
I spoke to an appraiser yesterday that believes the market may have bottomed out in March for Cedar City, Utah real estate.  My assistant Matt and I are working with 3 buyers tomorrow.  We are certainly seeing more accepted offers on properties and are very busy working with buyers and making offers and negotiating contracts.  It's too soon to tell if the market may be turning around, but I believe it is definitely more active.  I hope the appraiser is correct and that it is not just a spurt.  It's tough to guess the bottom, so I believe you should buy now.  … (0 comments)

short sales: Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate Is On The Move With Buyers Buying Homes! - 06/18/09 02:10 PM
I spoke to a local appraiser today and shared my thoughts regarding Cedar City Real Estate Sales.  He agrees with me that we may be seeing the bottom of the market.  Of course, no one knows that for sure.  We are seeing more offers and more sales in progress in my office.  We are also seeing multiple offers on the bargain-priced houses for sale including foreclosures, short sales, and other bargains.  We'll watch carefully to see if the upturn is just another spurt, or if it really is a trend.  Only the market will tell!
One builder, Sonbuilders, reduced their sales prices in … (0 comments)

short sales: What Do I Do Now That the $6,000 Utah Grant for New Construction Is Gone? - 06/16/09 02:39 PM
I would buy a home before the $8,000 tax credit is also gone!  If you haven't owned a home in the last 3 years and if you meet the criteria, you've got until the end of November to close to get the $8,000 tax credit.  I would definitely start now to find your dream home!
But what if you want a new construction home?  Son Builders' $6,000 credit is still available for Hidden Hills Cove new homes with warranties!  What a deal!  See MLS #47942, MLS #49147 and MLS #47941.
Some say interest rates are going to rise!  I would definitely … (0 comments)

short sales: Cedar City, UT, Homes For Sale Are Turning Into Homes Sold! - 06/08/09 04:00 PM
We're seeing a good kind of busy in the Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate market.  I love it when we are busy presenting offers, negotiating contracts, going to closings, faxing contracts, faxing instructions to title company, setting up sales in progress and so on.

I'm new to the blogging world!  My goal with writing my blogs is to be either informative or helpful.  How do I know if I'm succeeding?  I'd like to get more comments, so I'd know if anyone is reading the blog.  How do I do that?

short sales: Happy 93rd Birthday, Mom; I'm still selling Real Estate! - 05/08/09 03:23 PM
Time to think back 25 years to my parents loaning me the money to get my real estate license!  Time flies, and it's been a very rewarding and successful career!  Time to think back over 50 years to the time that I used to help Dad and Mom send out real estate flyers! 
My dad, Allen H. Barber, was a real estate broker, developer, subdivider, contractor and sold Preferred Risk Insurance in Bountiful, Utah.  Mom helped him in the office and wrote down stuff that he'd think of in the middle of the night.  He told me to be successful I'd need to think, … (1 comments)

short sales: BE AWARE: There's More To Real Estate Bargains Than Foreclosures! - 05/04/09 05:11 AM
I continue to get calls for lists of foreclosures and short sales, which I am happy to provide!  Please understand, however, that buyers are limiting both the quality and number of bargain-priced homes from which to choose if they just see foreclosures and short sales.  There are many sellers who purchased before the hot market that can compete very well with the prices of the foreclosures and short sales.  There are also sellers of new construction such as Hidden Hills Cove and Equestrian Pt. homes that are starting under $200,000 for gorgeous new homes with home warranties that are priced to compete with the … (0 comments)

short sales: Much To Be Grateful For According To Women's Conference! - 05/01/09 01:30 PM
I just returned from a 2-day Women's Conference where women convened from all over the world!  What amazing positive synergy!  There were women there from all walks of life with all kinds of troubles, problems and trials in their!  They were smiling, happy and ready to learn! 
The consensus of the conference, in my opinion, is that even in troubled times with economic and financial trials, we have much to be grateful for!  The way to happiness is to count your blessings instead of your problems in order to have more energy to be and do whatever it takes to succeed … (2 comments)

short sales: Back From Disneyland: Cedar City, UT, Real Estate Sales Are Increasing! - 04/28/09 10:14 AM
I just got back from a wonderful trip with children and grandchildren!  It was great riding on rides and keeping grandchildren entertained that were not quite tall enough to ride even with the highest shoes the parents could find!  I brought a fanny pack full of fruit leather and puppets, and we all had a great time--both riders and nonriders!

short sales: Have You Ever Thought About Being A Licensed Real Estate Assistant? - 04/10/09 10:02 AM
I was thinking today that in this market of too many real estate agents for the amount of work available, being a licensed assistant of a well-established REALTOR is a great way to go!  I do have 3 licensed assistants and am wondering if they realize how lucky they are to have a steady influx of cash. 
What do you think?  Is it better to be on your own in a market like this or work with a team? I'd love to hear your opinion. 
If any REALTORS read this that have assistants, would you rather be an assistant in this market … (1 comments)

short sales: Let's end foreclosures In The Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate Market! - 04/08/09 12:19 PM
How?  There are lots of ways: 
1.  Try refinancing to get a longer term and lower interest if you want to keep your home! 
2.   Ask me about doing a short-sale if you want to sell your home.  If you owe more than you can sell for and you have a hardship type reason that makes you unable to make the payment, many lenders will consider a short-sale.  That means they accept less than what you owe.  Please call Janet's team at 435-865-1019 if you'd like a short-sale package to fill out and submit to your lender including a sample. 
3.  Many lenders … (0 comments)

short sales: Little Things Really Aren't Big! Instead, Count Your Blessings! - 04/07/09 07:56 AM
Sometimes I find myself stuck on little issues that come up.  Are you that way?  The last few days I have been selling Cedar City, UT, real estate while spending time with my daughter, her husband, Bruce, and my 6 wonderful and practically perfect grandchildren from Syracuse, Utah.  While we were talking, something came up that really was not a big issue at all.  I admit that I was starting to stress.  My daughter reminded me not to worry about little things.  I've heard that before, haven't you?  I believe the phrase that applies here is, "Don't sweat the small stuff."
I believe … (0 comments)
