May 2022 - Spanish Fork Happenings

Sleep Number is opening soon at 1279 N Canyon Creek Drive in the Old Navy shopping center.

Spanish Fork City is holding a photo contest until May 15th for the Fiesta Days Magazine cover.  The theme this year is “Somewhere to be Proud of”.  Check out the city’s website for more information.

Pioneer Day activities like the Grand Parade, Speedy Spaniard, and fireworks will be held on Monday, July 25th due to the 24th being a Sunday.  

The “Flip your Strip” program is still available to turn your grass parkstrip into a more waterwise landscape. Go to for more details.

There is still time to clean up your home and yard with the free dumpster program running until May 7th.  The city website has more information regarding locations and what you can put inside the dumpsters.

Spanish Fork’s mayor announced on March 10th that a new recreation center is coming to the city.  The plans and location are still being finalized.  Currently the city has no pool and the city’s goal is to include one with the new recreation center.  

The completion of Spanish Fork Parkway has been stalled for over a year due to the railroad taking a while to decide how they want the crossing to function.  It is now looking like Spring of 2023 when the two sections of Spanish Fork Parkway will connect and bring a much needed new road to alleviate traffic on 400 N. 

Popeyes and Buckle should open in the month of May.

Salem has some big news with a McDonald’s, O’Reilly Auto Parts and Dollar Tree being built or plans to be under construction soon.

The real estate market has seen a shift in the past couple of weeks.  As interest rates continue to climb, we see buyers completely priced out of the market.  Home prices continue to go up at a slower pace but interest rates are increasing at a much faster rate.  As buyer’s purchasing power has decreased, the pool of available buyers at certain price points has decreased as well.  Less offers, less over asking and more buyers failing to perform on their offer as their loan isn’t approved.  Be sure you hire an agent that is aware of these slight changes in the market. It is vital that your agent is keeping tabs on the market so you don’t overpay as a buyer or have unrealistic expectations as a seller.  As always, I am available to meet for a consultation regarding your real estate needs or give you a free market analysis of your home.  Give me a call!
