Search Homes In Utah

With inventory so low these days, many are turning to building their home.  There are so many builders to chose from, a lot to choose, floor plans, colors, features, upgrades, landscaping etc.  It can be a big task to build a home, and having a Realtor on your side is going to benefit you when it comes down to your final price and quality of the home once it’s done.
You don’t have to go into a builder without representation, and allow them to convince you of adding things to your home you don’t need, or add extra costs to the build job without you realizing what is going on.  Let a Cornerstone agent accompany you to several builders so that you can compare service and quality of more than just one.  As one of the biggest purchases of your life, you want to do it right, and we can help.

Here are a few quick tips on building your new home from our friends at builderonline.com.

When it comes to design details, knowing where to spend and where to save can make all the difference. Spending too much in the wrong place is as much of a no-no as not doing enough, says Denverinterior designer Lita Dirks. 

And, there are other ideas that are just plain outdated. Here are seven “design don’ts” for 2016 from Dirks and IBS co-presenter Tony Crasi, an Akron, Ohio-based custom builder. Click here for a summary of their presentation on Right Sizing Your Design Dollars.

OUTDATED FLOOR PLANS. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that a floor plan is meeting buyers’ needs just because it’s your top seller, says Crasi. Take an honest look to see where improvements can be made. “Strive to make it better and you can probably ask for more money because you’re making it more interesting, more beautiful, and more today,” he says.

GRANITE. In certain markets, granite countertops no longer wow buyers as they once did. Even many apartments come with granite countertops, so make your homes stand out with something different. Consider a more uniform surface such as quartz or quartzite.

OVERDONE CEILINGS. Ceiling details can be beautiful if done right, but often they border on overkill. Use them judiciously to achieve the right amount of design bling.

Wondering if you should list your home?  Don’t know what is’t worth?  Let us give you a quick glimpse at the market in Norther Utah and Southern Idaho.  The first thing you need to know is that the inventory is low, and below you will see a daily snapshot comparing last year to this year for February 25th.  In three different counties you’ll see inventory is drastically low compared to last year, and low compared to almost every year the past decade.

So what does this mean for your house value?  It means that it’s a sellers market and values are increasing.  With fewer homes for buyers to select from, we are seeing more and more multiple offers on one property, and when that happens, it’s a simple example of supply and demand and prices go up. So have a look at a few counties below, and contact us at Cornerstone when you are interested in knowing the current value of your home, we’ll do a FREE market analysis and give you a detailed report so you can decide if now is the time to sell.
