What's trending in real estate right now? Location, location, location. Most home buyers know the classic advice to look for a home in a desirable location, but in UTAH, that is especially true. The hottest locations to buy right now are those that are family friendly. UTAH is a family state, known for having residents who are very family oriented. As the economy recovers, many people are relocating and family-friendly states are at the top of the list.

If you've been planning to sell your SALT LAKE VALLEY home, you're in luck. It's a great time to sell as people start becoming more confident in the housing market. HIGHLAND and HERRIMAN are two major locations for families who are looking to buy. They're rated in the Top 5 most family friendly cities. With low crime rates and over 75% of homes having children, families are on the hunt for great homes they can afford.

Don't have a family? Don't fret. There will still be buyers interested in your home, even if you're single. In fact, SOUTH SALT LAKE, PROVO and MIDVALE are trending locations for singles and home values are up as the market becomes stronger, meaning you can get a great price for your house in areas that singles tend to favor.

It's important that you start preparing your home for a sale. A UTAH real estate agent who knows their stuff will be a great asset to you as you start thinking about listing your house. They know the market and the trends better than anyone and if you plan to sell in the near future, they'll help you get the most value out of your home.
