Thinking of buying a home southern Utah area? Wanda Can help! When getting to know clients arriving from out of the area, I like to know why they chose southern Utah as a place to call home. Many respond with; less traffic, strong economy, small town feel, lower taxes. I encourage future residents to see the sights, travel the neighborhoods, talk to the local people to get a true point of view.

Feeling singled out?  Most of summer's colorful blooms are becoming dormant, readying for Fall. Cycles completed.

Customer Service - Customer = Self Serving The real estate industry is a people business. Anyone who thinks otherwise has no place inserting themselves. In a fast-paced world, it can be easy to lose sight of what is truly important and a customer should never become just another number in the scheme of transacting. Always put clients first and the rest will follow. Happy sales all! ...................................................Questions about the southern Utah area or any Washington County, Utah homes for sale, please contact me at 435.632.9374 or wanda@buynsellutah.com.

Delivering a blushing crow. We are back to multiple offers in the southern Utah real estate market and an accepted offer depends on: Cash or mortgage - Many investors will score big when submitting cash offers for homes on the market. First-time homebuyers looking to get a mortgage will struggle to get an offer accepted in this fast-paced multiple offer scenario for an affordable home. Timeline to close - Closing in 20 days or less grabs attention and can be done with cash only these days thanks to TRID (TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures: The combination of the Good Faith Estimate (GFE), Truth-in-Lending Statement (TIL) and Settlement Statement (HUD-1). Terms and conditions - The less contingencies the better for sellers! Although I always encourage a home buyer to get a home inspection...

There is a clear difference between motivated and desperate! Recently, after listing their home, my clients decided to drop the price and then again a week later, after no offers. I got a call and the agent on the line asked if my sellers just wanted to dump the property. No, I explained, they are motivated, not desperate. Shortly after that second price drop, I received an offer from an investor at more than $100,000 less than list price. No counter necessary, it was as high as he would go. My clients quickly rejected the offer. They are motivated not desperate. I put the home on the local Board Tour and 18 out of 20 agents said the home was well priced and would sell quickly. After two informed offers, the sellers accepted one and are now Under Contract. There is a clear difference be...
