slc: UTA Wins Big In Sandy - 05/31/11 07:35 PM
Sandy City Council Members reverse an earlier decision to keep UTA (Utah Transit Authority) from building a new Park and Ride lot at the new 114th South freeway exit, to accommodate a future Trax stop. UTA has apparently met the conditions set forth by the two votes that held up their ability to proceed. This is continued growth for Sandy City and surrounding areas, and was likely inevitable, once the on/off ramps were completed at 114th South on I15.  Unfortunately, some Sandy homeowners are not happy about this reversed decision and feel it will negatively effect their Sandy property values.

slc: Analysts Say Housing Is On Its Way UP! - 04/28/11 07:24 AM
REAL ESTATE ANALYSTS SAY HOUSING IS ON ITS WAY BACK UP! Analysts at both Standard & Poor's and Barclays Capital agree that the uptick in home resales last month is a favorable sign of things to come. Because pending home sales — an indicator of future activity — were up in February, S&P believes transaction volume will rise for April and continue with this trend through May. Barclays, meanwhile, says March's 3.7 percent gain in existing-home sales merely reinforces its position that the housing market actually hit bottom in late 2010.
Truly good news for everyone, especially for Salt Lake … (3 comments)

A partial shutdown of the federal government was avoided late Friday night, when Democrats and Republicans agreed on a budget deal and a short-term funding extension little more than an hour before the deadline. The extension cuts spending by $2 billion and will last through next Friday, April 15.
But all the uncertainty leading up to this decision was just one factor that caused Bonds and home loan rates to worsen through the week. On Thursday, as expected the European Central Bank (ECB) raised their benchmark rate in an effort to curtail rising inflation, meaning the Euro now trades at its … (0 comments)

Forbes magazine, which placed Utah as #1 in its annual ranking of "Best States for Business," just may have said it best: Companies are getting the message that Utah is the right place for business.
