What do I need to do to sell my Draper Utah home?  Lately, people have been talking more about wanting to and wondering if now is the time to sell their home.  The news is peaking interest of sellers who have been sitting and waiting for the market to improve.   Sellers who who have been anxiously waiting to have enough equity to put their home on the market.   Sellers who have been waiting for the surplus of short sales and fore closures to dwindle.   There's never a perfect time for everyone.   My suggestion is to sit down with an expert, not the internet sites, and find out what your home is worth.  Find out what is out there and available for you to move to.  One important and key item to remember is that Utah is a non disclosure state. Websites will not provide you with the most ac...

Draper UT, the decorated, the spectacular... I always enjoy the night ights of the Salt Lake Valley UT especially when seen from a high vantage point. For the past month or more, most of my meetings have been daytime. Evening jaunts have allowed me to use TRAX across the Valley floor .Mostly my nights have been in a more reserved Sandy UT.  Of course it is now darker earlier also.  I have just returned from a trip to the higher parts, the knolls, of Draper at the southern end of of the Salt Lake Valley. All the joys of observing the city expanse to the north and west from under the heights of the Wasatch Front. Peak traffic, now after dark, produces long lines of lights; the populace seeking out their homes after a hard day. Always new traffic lane variations for the unwary and the away...

Home loan options in Draper, Utah. Here's your guide to mortgages in Draper. Draper's most popular mortgage option is called a Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage. Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgages (or "FRM" for short) offer constant interest rate for the entire life of the loan and monthly payments remain constant. For the most part, a down payment of 20% is required, but that is not always the case. The life of this mortgage ranges 10-40 years.   The opposite of a Fixed Rate Mortgage, Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) are not fixed. It's only fitting that they call it an 'adjustable rate'. Depending on the market, your interest rate could change. It is recalculated on a yearly basis. Since your interest rate changes, your monthly payment changes, too. Unless the market does something crazy...

Bank Owned, REO, Foreclosure, or Short Sales Condos and town homes have consumed this week. I am looking at Condos in Draper, South Jordan and West Jordan. I have buyers that I need a home or Condo to purchase quickly. If you read my blog you will remember my post about Salt Lake Condos and Town Homes I wrote last spring. Anyways, the post had mentioned an out of State buyer wishing to purchase a second home in Utah. This type of purchase is classified as an investment and many Fannie mae or Freddie mac homes are ineligible. My buyer had made an offer on a Short Sale in Suncrest, a mountain top community in Draper, Utah. This Short Sale was never approved and after 6 months of patiently waiting we have moved on. Buyer is motivated. We know what we want  a Suncrest Condo with a main flo...

If you're shopping for a home, you may have noticed that a large number of the homes that are currently on the market are short sales. A short sale occurs when a homeowner owes a lender more than their home is worth, and the lender agrees to let the owner sell the home and accept less than what is owed. Lenders may agree to a short sale because they believe it will net them more money than going forward with a lengthy and costly foreclosure process.

The Wall Street Journal did an article on Flow trails and the advantages and need for them.  Most of the article was written about a couple of areas with multiple flow trails such as Lake Tahoe and Sun Valley Idaho.  We didn't get mentioned in the article, but in the map included in the article, they listed 11 trails throughout the country and the Rush Trail in Draper, UT made the list!   It is really great to get some national exposure for the trail system out our back door.   For an update the 3rd phase is just about ready to open, they are completing work last 200-300 feet of trail.  (Then we need rain, and lots of riders to compact it) Phase 4 is on the list to get done at the end of the season, so we could be riding all the way to the Silica Pit by next spring!   Also, the bike par...

Draper Homes- Draper Days - Draper Grand openings! As a resident of Draper, Utah, who specializes in Draper Homes for sale. I am very excited about the recent events and Grand openings that make living in Draper such a great option for Salt Lake County residents. Last night I attended the new Harry Potter movie at the recently opened Draper Cinemark in the Draper Peaks shopping district. I am not a movie buff but was excited to see what all the hype was about. The theatre is state of the art with Luxury leather seating and XD- RealD-3D whatever that means. It is a fantastic theatre and the nicest Ive been to in the Salt Lake City area. Draper homeowners should be excited about the short commute to a first class theatre. Harry Potter itself was very entertaining and my children commented...

This is a continuation from yesterdays investment property blog post If you decide to purchase rental property, you’ll need to learn the landlord/tenant laws in your city or state. What follows is just a sample of what’s typical.   Tenant’s Responsibilities ·         Pay rent on or before the due date stipulated in the lease. ·         Prevent damage to the property (use heat so pipes don’t freeze, keep windows closed when it’s raining, report plumbing leaks right away, etc.). ·         Allow only the people and pets listed on the lease to live on the grounds. ·         Maintain all smoke detectors so they’re functioning at all times. ·         Allow the landlord entry for inspections, maintenance, pest control, showings, etc. ·         Refrain from storing dangerous or illegal material...
