I am sponsoring the Pyromusical on July 16th at the Spanish Fork Sports Park.  I will have a booth set up so come say hello to me and enter to win two rodeo tickets on July 25th and a $250 gift card!  I’ll be giving away ice water while supplies last. I hope to see you there!

The real estate world has slowed down. Homes are sitting on the market longer, have less showings, less offers, and aren’t going over asking like they have in the past.  If you’re a buyer, this is your time to get into a home!  Rising interest rates coupled with more housing inventory have quickly cooled the hot market.  This is good news!  We needed something to slow down the unsustainable housing market.  While it seems like a drastic change, we are still in a seller’s market.  Homes now sell in about a week vs a day.  A balanced market is when we have 6 month of inventory.  In June 2022, we had 1.39 months of inventory compared to June 2021 at 1.18 months of inventory. The mortgage world has a saying floating around “Marry the house but date the rate”. It’s a great time to buy and plan on refinancing in the next couple of years if the rates go down.  I’m here to help you find the right lender and the right home for you.
