Archive for the month “February, 2013”

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Valentine Day, and I hope your 2013 is the best year!

2013 should be a great year for Real Estate in Cedar City and surrounding areas. Continued improvement is noted in the most recent Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) “Local Market Updates by County.” It usually takes UAR a couple of months to compile the data, so the attached December Update is the most current that we have received. Closed sales were up year to date (YTD) in 2012 as compared to 2011 in most counties. The Median Sales Price was also up in most counties YTD in 2012 as compared to 2011.

The Iron County Board of REALTORS 2012 sales graphs have been completed and are also attached for your information. The graphs include all of the2012 sales for all of the real estate offices in the Iron County Board of REALTORS. The huge majority of homes sold in our area under $200,000.

I just received the “News and Strategies for The Evolving Mortgage Market MReport February 2013” Magazine. There is an interesting article titled, “Stability a Sure Thing for Investors in 2013.” The article starts out, “A new report from Neuberger Berman Group LLC indicates that 2013 will be a year of greater stability and a reduction in uncertainty and volatility for investors.” Further on in the article is a quote from Joseph Amato of Neuberger Berman, “Although there are continuing issues, we now have some confidence that we’ll get more stability in 2013, and that should present outperformance opportunities.” This is very positive news for the real estate market in 2013.

We are seeing some signs of new life with the Playhouse being torn down to make room for a new $ store. We are seeing more new construction starts. The news is that a new roofing company and a Medical Facility are in the works which should help the real estate market and job availability here.

The 4 factors to have the winning edge to make sure your property is marked sold:
1. Aggressive marketing: You are receiving worldwide marketing! We know of none better!
2. Price: Please call today to discuss recent sold comparable properties to see if an adjustment is needed in market price to ensure you have the competitive edge to attract buyers.
3. Show Perfect: Please call today to discuss how to make sure your real estate shows well to attract an offer from buyers when they see your property.
4. Make your real estate available for showings upon request.

#1 is the factor that is our job, and I do not know of anyone that markets more aggressively than the Naisbitt-Bagley Team. The remaining 3 are very important also and are in the control of the seller.

Many of Our Homes Are Sold!

Do you want to sell your home? If you have been waiting for the right time, I believe that time may just have arrived. Iron County median price range and number of closed sales are both up. Multiple offers are coming in on some homes. I believe it is fast becoming a good time to sell as well as to buy.

Please call the Naisbitt-Bagley Team at 435-865-1019 at ERA Realty Center today for your free real estate consultation. Please note that if you owe more than the value of your home, the Naisbitt-Bagley Team is trained, experienced and certified to market short sales as well as all types of homes in all price ranges including luxury homes.

What is Happening in the World of Real Estate?

Both Matt and I showed homes today to 2 great families looking to move into their own happy home in the Cedar City, UT, real estate area. Both families have narrowed their searches to 2 attractive homes. The fun of the hunt is nearly over for them, and the joy of homeownership is about to begin when they choose their favorite!

What could possibly happen to change this happy scene? What if they both happen to choose the same home, or what if someone else makes an offer? If more than 1 person offers on the same home, the higher offer typically wins the home. Sometimes buyers offer more than list price in order to come out on top. The couple that loses out could go back to their second choice, but what if that one has just gotten an accepted offer? Then the race begins to start the search over and find your home, and buy it before someone else does.

This is a common scenario in our real estate market area. We have more buyers searching and fewer homes on the market. I recommend that buyers quickly get off the fence while incredible bargains still exist. Don’t give up if you lose out on an offer. Remember to try try again until you win the bid and move into your happy home. I believe you will always be glad you did!

Check out the bargains, short sales and foreclosures at http://www.homesincedarcity.com today. Then call the Naisbitt-Bagley Team at 435-865-1019 for your free tour of the homes you like or email naisbitt@infowest.com.

We can also send you the homes that match your criteria, and we can have automatic emails sent to you of homes as they come on the market that match that criteria. The price reductions would also come to you as they hit the market if we set you up for that free service.

Please let the Naisbitt-Bagley Team work hard to help you reach your real estate goals today.
