Utah's Real Estate Market Makes A Come-Back

Wed - October 24, 2012

Utah's Strong Economy

I'm sure with all the political ads, attacks during the Presidential debates, and the media frenzy convering the economy that you are tired of hearing depressing and negative news. Well I have got some GREAT news about Utah's real estate market and Utah's economy.

Not only has Utah's unemployment rate dropped to 5.4%, which is incredible compared to the national average of 7.8, but our real estate market has seen real progress this year. Home sales are up 21% year over year which is a sign of new buyers entering the marketplace. The median sales price of homes also increased from $186k to $205k, a 10% increase! Do you remember the last time we saw rising home values in Utah? It's been a while. In addition, pending homes sales have risen 22% and the inventory of homes for sale on the MLS has been cut nearly in half. 

Keeping a long story short, interest rates being at historic lows, coupled with low unemployment and little inventory spells a bottom in the market. I might even go as far to say we are now entering a sellers market with rising prices. We may not be totally there yet, but it appears Utah's real estate market is making a come-back!!!
