When You Interview a Realtor® in 2011

During 2010, there were 25,119 sales closed and posted in WFRMLS (Wasatch Front Regional Multiple Listing Service – Utah). There are currently 8,194 active agents. That’s only 3 sales, per year, per agent.

When you’re interviewing a Realtor® to represent your home buying or home selling interests, an important question to is, “how many clients did you, Ms/Mr Realtor, help achieve their homeownership goals this past year?”

This is an especially important question because there is and has been no room for error in pricing and negotiation, advertising and marketing, during this continuing housing crisis.

In order for you to be successful achieving your home buying or home sale goals, you’ll need a Realtor® who is experienced in working through the challenges of THIS real estate market.


Thankful for 48 Closed Sales in 2011!

CNBC’s How’s Housing? Report

The news contained in this report is simply that 2011 will continue to be a strong buyer’s market. Sellers who have been holding off listing their homes for sale, anticipating real estate values to recover, are going to have to wait at least 12 – 18 more months to see any improvement. It is NOT going to happen this spring.

This is not necessarily bad news. If a seller is also looking to buy a home, then they should be able to take advantage of home prices comparable to those in 1997. Interest rates are still at or below 5%. Two historic conditions that may not present themselves again.

This is the time for savvy home owners, current or new, to take advantage of unprecedented opportunity in the housing market.

Recovery? (via East Layton Real Estate News)
