utah: 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.

utah: 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)

utah: Drop in Number of Homes For Sale is Causing Delays In Finding Homes! - 08/29/12 09:02 AM
Buyers in the Cedar City, UT, real estate market are discovering that patience is required to buy their home.  Buyers who have succeeded testify that home ownership is worth the wait and effort.  I agree. 
Is this a trend in other parts of the country.  Please let me know.  I believe the market is turning around.  Do you?
Multiple-offers are coming in on homes under $150,000.  Some are selling above list price and above appraisal.  Buyers are disappointed when they lose the bid on the home they like to another buyer who offers more.  Buyers may have to try several offers on … (1 comments)

utah: Will The Real Estate Market Recovery Please Stand Up? - 07/17/12 05:26 AM
Recent news articles seem to be divided as to whether or not we are in the real recovery.  I personally believe that with bargain low prices, decreasing inventory and historically low interest rates,  buyers will continue to leave the fence and purchase their homes.  We are already seeing an increased number of closings in the Iron County, UT, real estate market.  Investors are picking up rental units and renters are becoming happy homeowners.  I believe we are experiencing the real recovery.  Do you?
What is happening in other states?  The question on everyone's mind is, "Will prices go up?"  That remains … (2 comments)

utah: If You Are Eligible to do a Short Sale on Your Home, Then What? True or False! - 06/06/12 09:01 AM
Do you have a financial hardship?  Are you under water which means you owe more than your house will sell for? If so, you may be eligible to do a short sale!
Some think foreclosure is inevitable when they can't make their house payment.  The truth is that you don't have to sit back and accept a foreclosure! Check with your lender and find out all your options!  Do you want to keep your home?  Ask about a loan modification, refinance, etc.  Do you need to move?  Ask about a short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure, etc.
Some people think foreclosure is … (1 comments)
