Utah County Homes for Sale - Short Sale What is a Short Sale? With the present Real Estate market in turmoil and many home owners are having a hard time trying to sell their home, because they owe more than it is worth.  I keep getting the question from my buyers about what is a Short Sale and how does it work?  Well I will try and address that question here.  I hope I am accurate, I am sure I will hear about it if I am not. What is a Short Sale? A Short Sale occurs when a property sells for a price that is insufficient to pay back the loans secured by the property (or any other liens against the property, such as delinquent property taxes, Homeowners/Condominium Association fees, etc.), as well as standard sales closing costs.  In order to complete such a sale, the Seller must either: ...

Utah County Homes for Sale - Negotiating the Purchase When it comes to time to negotiate a Utah County Real Estate transaction, some interesting dynamics take place. Obviously the Seller wants the most money they can get for their home. The Utah County Buyer wants the most home for the least amount of money. This is a crucial time to have a professional on your side, who knows and understands how the process works. There is not a right or a wrong way to proceed, but it does involve a lot of give and take. The party with the stronger alternative usually gets more, but a successful negotiation happens when both sides end up with a compromise and no one feels deceived or taken advantage of. There are a few points that need to be considered when you approach the negotiating table: •·       ...

I had the opportunity to do a little golfing today at River Oaks at Sandy City. I thought I would share my thoughts with you about the course. I found it very enjoyable, and would highly recommend it. River Oaks is located at 9300 Riverside Dr. Sandy, UT 84070. It is very accessibly from the freeway just off of the 9000 South Exit. We called the course at (801) 568-4653 and made a 4 PM tee time. I arrived ten minutes before 4 and had to wait the ten minutes in the pro shop to pay because there was a couple of couples in front of us. The pro shop was very nice on the inside and had a very cool exterior design. Once we paid we got right out on number 1. I started off with an awesome drive and then played fairly poorly after that. I thought the course was well designed and had a few challe...

Utah Home Loans - Loan Origination and Discount Points Origination points are a fee paid to the originating lender which is part of the profit margin for the services that they provide.  Both are measured as a percentage of the loan amount and both are factored into the loans APR.  Generally, points are deductible as long as the seller didn't pay for them and origination fees are tax deductible provided they are expressed as a percentage. Discount points enable you to lower your loans interest rate.  They are basically prepaid interest, with each point equaling 1 % of the total loan amount.  When you pay a point on a 30 year mortgage, you can lower your interest rate by .125 of a percentage point.  When comparing loan rates, ask lenders for an interest rate with 0 points and then see ho...

Sandy Real Estate went from selling well over 1,000 homes to selling just under 850 homes.  Last year, sales rebounded slightly but the prices that Sandy homes sold for have continued to decrease over the past 2 years. Median price of Sandy Condos has increased approximately $100,000 over the past ten years.  Numbers, on the other hand, increased by 100 but then decreased and are back to the same range of numbers from ten years ago.

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 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 with low and/or no risk tolerance to purchase.  High and medium risk tolerant investors are making buying decisions and are doing some bottom fishing.  Some are trying to time the market and market timing is risky.  Trying to time the bottom is not for the inexperienc...

Utah Home Buyers Beware - Yield Spread Premium (YSP) As a Loan Officer and Realtor I have noticed an area of Home Loans and Mortgages that goes unnoticed by the consumer,  that of Yield Spread Premium.  Most borrowers believe that their Loan Officer makes his profit with the Loan Origination Fee.  But most don't understand that the Loan Officer can make up to 4 percent more, on most loans, with the Yield Spread Premium. What is Yield Spread Premium? Yield Spread Premium, or YSP, is the fee paid by the Lender to the broker in exchange for a higher interest rate, or an above wholesale rate.  The borrower may qualify for a certain rate, but the broker can charge this fee and give the borrower a slightly higher rate to make more commission.  YSP was originally intended as a way for the borr...
