The latest Conference Board Press Release (Dated October 1, 2008) shows some areas of the country where the number of available jobs exceeds the number of unemployed. One of those cities (the one at the top!) is Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Conference Board reports that "35 of [the] top 52 Metro areas post over-the-year declines in job demand." Those living in the Salt Lake City area have a lot to be greatful for. The real estate "boom" here started late and ended early when consumers saw surrounding areas starting to bust. Home values have held fairly flat, which is pretty good under the circumstances nationwide. People and companies still relocate here because of the many benefits that come from living in the area.
If you are moving to the Salt Lake City area, buying a home still makes sense in most cases.
If you buy a home in today's market, make sure you get an Agent on YOUR side of the transaction!
