utah: 22% of Single Family Homes Listed in Utah are Short Sales - 02/26/11 10:08 AM
I had the pleasure of representing some awesome, patient buyers who recently closed on a short sale transaction in Utah "only" five months after their original offer was written.  I have represented only buyers in short sale transactions, and after many attempts, I can finally say that short sale trasnactions CAN actually close. Having closed only one of 10 short sales transactions, my personal recommendation to buyers looking to purchase a short sale property is to avoid them unless they enjoy waiting for inept, non-responsive mortgage companies to respond (if at all).
Now to the shocking figure in the subject line … (2 comments)

utah: Update - Ogden Valley Single Family Home Prices - 11/27/10 06:02 AM
Below is an update to my periodic posts on the Ogden Valley single family home market.   In a previous blog post from mid-2009, I called the bottom of the Ogden Valley real estate market, when home sales averaged $93/FT2 for the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2009.  The data below provide monthly single family home sales data from our local MLS system for 2000 through 11/26/2010.
During the five year 2000-2004 period, sales volume doubled between 2000 (50) and 2004 (100), as Utah and the Ogden Valley were discovered by out of state buyers, helped by the 2002 Olympics.  Even with this … (0 comments)

utah: Powder Mountain Memorandum of Understanding Gets Green Light from Weber County Commission - 06/02/10 05:11 AM
Following a three hour, standing room only public hearing I attended last night (June 1st), Powder Mountain owner/developer representatives (Western America Holdings management company, Pronaia Capital Partners) Joseph Pierce and Steve Nielsen and 40 primarily Ogden Valley residents voiced their respective opinions, the Weber County commission unanimously approved a ten-point BINDING Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).  The MOU gives the green light for the development agreement (DA) process to move forward for Powder Mountain.

utah: Think Before Buying a Condo - Consider Alternatives - 05/18/10 05:35 AM
Within the Ogden Valley (Eden, Huntsville and Liberty) housing market area, condominium complexes are used primarily for vacation, second home and short term rental purposes, most of this to support the local ski industry.  
HOA fees for Moose Hollow, The Cascades, Wolf Lodge, Wolf Star and Lakeside condominium complexes are generally in the $240 - $300/month range.  Condo HOA fees went up significantly over the past several years because of huge increases in water, sewer, snow removal, insurance and maintenance expenses.  Assuming $250/month HOA fees and an interest rate of 6%, consider this: That $250/month spent on HOA fees is … (5 comments)

utah: Update - Ogden Valley Single Family Home Market - 10/31/09 12:59 PM
I wanted to provide an update to the information I posted back in July regarding the status of the Ogden Valley real estate market.  The results of the last few months continue to support what I feel represents a bottoming, and new baseline for the Ogden Valley real estate market.
Although $/FT2 is not a perfect measure, this metric provides a good view of the market overall, and helps to identify trends.  Listed below is annual data providing a historical snapshot of the Ogden Valley real estate market.  As you can see, the period 2002-2004 serves as a good baseline, when SFH home sales prices were very stable.  A large percentage of recent sales in 2009 are distressed, … (0 comments)

utah: Current Trends Indicate Bottom of Market for Ogden Valley Utah - 07/19/09 01:40 PM
Just my opinion, but I believe the Ogden Valley (Eden, Liberty, Huntsville) single family home market has finally reached the bottom.  I base this on several months of what appears to be support on a $/FT2 basis.
I typically use 2004 as the baseline year, and recent home sales (since April of 2009) have been running very close to that baseline.
Following is a rundown since 2000.  Figures below represent home sales on a $/FT2 basis for the full calendar year:
Year     $/FT2
2000    $90.16
2001    $78.22
2002    $85.21
2003    $83.99
2004    $88.82
2005    $109.72
2006    $150.25
2007    $150.32
