Spring is one of the most popular times of year to buy a home. If you've been planning to buy a home anywhere in UTAH, you already know that there is a lot that goes into the home buying process.

How are Utah home buyers seeing benefits of home ownership versus renting?

By: Bob Foote, Monday, April 28, 2014

Home ownership has a number of benefits, including the equity you get when you own, rather than renting. With the current market being favorable to buyers, it's an ideal time to start looking into your next home purchase. If you've been looking to upgrade or if you've been renting anywhere in the SALT LAKE VALLEY, you'll find that you have your pick of gorgeous, quality homes that are ready for a move-in.

Especially in the growing and thriving areas between PROVO and SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH homebuyers are realizing that home ownership is more than just the initial purchase.

As you've probably heard, the very first thing you should consider when looking at a home to purchase is "location, location, location" – and it's true. The location of your home has a lot to do with its value. You may be looking to relocate completely or just upgrade, but no matter your reason, resale should be a consideration and location is a big factor in that. Homes in SALT LAKE COUNTY range in style, but the area where you ultimately buy should depend on your lifestyle – the commute, schools in the area, safety, how close you want to be to your neighbors, and lot size, to name a few. Read More...
