By: Robert A. Hulme - Realtor - Loan Officer -Utah County, Including Provo, Orem, Pleasant Grove, American Fork, Lehi, Highland, Alpine and Cedar Hills, Eagle Mountain, Payson, Saratoga Springs, Spanish Fork, Springville, Mortgage Xpress, Agent The Internet is beginning to play a major role in our daily lives.  Most people are having a hard time doing anything without first going the Internet.  I am finding that most Real Estate Home Buyers begin their home search on the Internet, in fact most generally don't contact a Realtor until they are far along in their Home search.  With this being the case it has become more apparent each day, the importance of having Real Estate Websites that help the Home Buyer effectively, providing them with relevant information that is easy to access and v...

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 listings and higher percent of new listings being SOLD.  On a year over year, YTD comparison currently (20.47)% of new listings are being sold.        SUMMARY Currently we are not seeing the needed positive price action (along with other indictors) to confirm a market bottom.  This is NOT a good time for conservative buyers to purchase.  High risk tolerant investors and speculators are doing some bottom fishing.       Data considered accurate... However is NOT Guaranteed.  Contact ...

Are Properties Owned by Banks a Good Deal - Utah County Real Estate Banks are not in the business to hold onto an inventory of homes.  They want to get rid of these homes yesterday.  This makes for a great opportunity for you, the home buyer or investor, because most of these homes are well below market value.  Once the bank owns the property they will handle eviction if any, take care of some repairs, pay past HOA and/or other maintenance dues, and then will negotiate with the IRS, removal of tax liens, if any. How do banks sell REO's (Real Estate owned by the Bank) Most banks have an REO department that handle  the sale of these properties.  They certainly would like to get the best price of course.  When you make an offer, the banks will usually make a counter offer.  Don't  be surpr...
