Utah County Homes for Sale - Positive Mental Attitude (PMA ) in a Negative Market. It is so important to stay positive in today's Real Estate market.  We have grown accustomed to a volatile market.  Homes sales seem to follow right along with how the DOW is going.  But we need to maintain a positive attitude, Realtor's as well as Home buyers and sellers. We each need to cheer the other one up and keep things going.  I have found that I have my best success during bad times.  So many of my fellow Real Estate agents get caught up in how bad things are going that they go right with the flow.  We need to set ourselves apart from those who get themselves down.  It is important to follow a couple of simple guidelines. •·         Make sure you always have a smile on your face.  This will at le...

Utah County Real Estate - Sell before you Buy When it comes time to purchase a new home, the question always comes up, should I sell my old home before I buy the new one?  Depending on your credit situation and your ability to qualify for two loans, this question could be easily resolved.  We will assume you have excellent credit and can do whatever you please.  It is always better to have your present home sold before you make an offer on the new home.  If you have an offer with a contingency of selling the old home, the seller will be less likely to accept the offer or allow better terms.  You will always be in a better bargaining position if you were able to move in without delay.  Credit terms on you new loan will also be better based on you living in the new home as your primary re...

Utah County Real Estate - Home Buyer's Market Are you a present Home Buyer Candidate? How you been waiting for the perfect time to buy a home? Well your time is now, at no other time in recent memory has the real estate market been at a point where you had nothing to lose, and everything to gain. As a full-time Home Buyer Representative, I too like this kind of Home Buyer market. There are so many opportunities out there for my clients that I feel like a little kid in a candy store. A Home Buyer market comes at a time when the supply of homes for sale exceeds the demand to buy those homes. The Home Buyer market can be a great opportunity to not only negotiate the price of a new home you want to buy, but it can also be a time for great interest rates, inspection costs, and closing cost o...

Utah County Homes for Sale - Home Buyer Representation As of 1994, the state of Utah authorized Buyer's Agency.  In Utah County, and throughout the state, buyers can choose an agent to work exclusively on their behalf.  Buyer agency benefits include: •·         Buyer's agents are almost always paid out of the proceeds of the sale by the seller or builder, so we always recommend using a Realtor, as it will cost you nothing extra. •·         Many people do not realize that it is advantageous to have an agent on a new home purchase as well.  I have gone to bat for my clients on a number of occasions when there were problems with home builders.  Salespeople who work for the builder are usually very ethical they are also employees of the builder and are bound by their relationship to their e...

Utah County Homes for Sale - House vs. Home When it becomes time to sell many times real estate agents will refer to your home as real estate, they will refer to your purchase as a "home".  Yet, if you are selling property, they will refer to it as a "house".  There is a reason for this.  Buying real estate is often an emotional decision, but when selling real estate you need to remove emotion from the equation.  You need to think to think of your house as a marketable commodity, Property, Real Estate.  The goal of your Realtor is to get buyers to view your property as their potential home, not yours.  If you do not consciously make this decision, you can inadvertently create a situation where it takes longer to sell your property. Another important thing you must do to your property is...

Throughout the past ten years, Orem Real Estate sold experienced a big increase then an even bigger decrease.  The ten year low was reached in 2008 with about 250 less homes sold then what sold in 2000.  2009 saw an increase in Orem homes sold so hopefully that's also a reflection of years to come. Despite a small decrease here and there, price of Real Estate in Orem has mostly been on the increase over the years.

Utah County Real Estate - Interest Rate vs. APR Many borrowers don't understand that there is a difference between the Mortgage Rate and the Annual Percentage Rate (APR).  The mortgage rate is the base rate usually associated with a mortgage.  The APR of a loan is supposed to be an overall interest rate with all the applicable closing costs factored in.  Unfortunately, not all lenders include the same costs so not all APR's are created equally.  Use the APR as a general guide to the overall cost of the loan but keep in mind that you have to look at the details of what's included to be sure.

We need Positive Price Action to confirm market bottom.  One month of price improve isn't sufficient to confirm the market bottom.  We need to see appreciation month over month for three months. PRICE ACTION   Other good signs in addition to positive price action is lower DOM (days of the market), lower new listingsand higher percent of new listings being SOLD.   SUMMARY Has the Utah Real Estate Market bottomed? Currently we are not seeing the needed positive price action (along with other indicators) to confirm a market bottom.  This is NOT a good time for those investor with low and/or no risk tolerance to purchase.  Investors with a long term buy and hold strategic.  Opportunities are starting to make sense.  Contact your property resource specialist for information to make an inform...

Utah County Real Estate - Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is the safety net of the lender.  PMI benefits lenders because it guarantees payment on the balance of loans not covered by the sale of foreclosed properties. If a borrower makes a down payment of 20% of the cost of the home, the lender can generally trust that he will make his mortgage payments faithfully to protect a large investment. In this case, the lender comes out ahead if the borrower is forced to foreclose on his house, because the lender loans 80% of the cost of the house, but will probably recover 100% of the cost of the house. But, if the borrower makes a smaller down-payment, such as 3%, 5% or 10%, and borrows the rest, and then defaults on his loan, the lender loses money. If a hous...

Utah County FHA (Federal Housing Authority) Home Loans The FHA (Federal Housing Authority) doesn't actually fund your Utah County Home Loan in any way.  The FHA simply provides mortgage insurance to help consumers become Home Owners.  The FHA actually insures the lender from losses resulting from Home Owner default.  The FHA helps mortgage lenders prepare loans for people who might not otherwise qualify. One of the big advantages of an FHA Loan is that a smaller down payment is possible.  As of January 1, 2009, the down payment for a FHA Loan is 3 ½ percent of the principle loan amount.  In today's market the down payment on conventional loans can be as much as 20 percent.  FHA loans make it possible for many people to enter the Home Buyer market, just with the lower down payment alone....
