There has been a lot of talk in the national media and with national “experts” lately regarding conditions in the housing market. We will admit that if you listen too much it makes you want to jump off the roof of your house and end it all right now.
But then, that’s their job…to instill “crisis” in the hearts of listeners so they will faithfully tune in to hear the latest news on the “crisis” (ever hear Good news being promoted on teasers?)…and to sell air time to clients by grabbing the most viewers.
Now, we are not saying that there is no housing crisis or that prices have not gone down, or that it is not a bit harder to get a loan these days, that would make us ostriches with our heads in the sand and our b…ts in the air (not an attractive position), but we maintain that Real Estate is LOCAL not NATIONAL.
Conditions in Utah are unique to Utah and while we have had our share, we do not have the devistation that exists in California, Nevada, Michigan or even the East Coast. And…even in Utah conditions vary from region, county, city, and even neighborhood.
But never fear little buckeroos, we have a solution for you (because we are Not ostriches -yuk- but your caring and insightful, friendly local realtors). We have a free service called Market Snapshot that we offer our clients, friends and associates. This report delivered to your email once a month is designed to give you the real time info on conditions in your particular neighborhood; what has sold, what is selling, how distressed (read shortsales and foreclosures) properties are affecting your particular neighborhood and ultimately, your home. In short, everything you need to keep up to date on your local market.
So, if you are not currently receiving our Market Snapshot, CLICK HERE TO GET IT, and if you are…Read It! Then you will never have to look at TV again, (well there is The Good Wife, I can’t fault you if you watch that.), but you will always be armed with the facts, not the hype…or the crisis.
Oh, and don’t forget to call or text us (number’s at the top of the page…801.819.9005) if you have questions…we Are you local real estate experts you know.
