August 2023 - Spanish Fork Happenings

Spanish Fork City’s Public Safety Night Out is Monday, August 7th from 6-8pm at North Park (1185 N 400 E).  Come explore fire trucks, ambulances and police cars and check out the free food and giveaways.

Bank of America will be having a grand opening around the middle of August.  Their new building is located at 1126 N Canyon Creek Pkwy in the Petco and Ross shopping center.

Spanish Fork’s Chamber of Commerce Farmers Market is in full swing each Saturday until the end of October from 8am-1pm.  Come get your fresh fruits and vegetables from our local farmers at 775 W Center Street (near the police station).

Salem Days begins on August 4th and runs through the 15th with events like the dutch oven cook offs, the grand parade, a car show and so much more, there is something for everyone.  Check out the details here:

Wiggy Wash is adding another location in Spanish Fork and the building is nearing completion.  It is located next to KFC with the previous location of Sunglow Cafe (80 W 1000 N).  When its grand opening is announced, I will let you know.

Spanish Fork Emergency Management is having an Emergency Preparedness Expo on August 15th from 6-8pm at the Veterans Memorial Building. There will be booths, activities and lots of information to make sure you are prepared in an emergency. 

Target is still scheduled to open in October.  I’ll be having a GIVEAWAY once we have an official grand opening date. Be sure to follow my social media accounts for those details!

Real estate in Utah has been somewhat of an anomaly.  Several states are seeing a drop in house prices depending on their economic climates.  While a few pockets of Utah have seen larger price adjustments, the general consensus is that Utah’s holding steady with our strong economy and job growth. Yes, prices have adjusted but I like to say that the gas pedal is no longer floored, rather it’s steady.  People are still moving to Utah and our population within the state is growing. In the past few years, new construction homes have put a dent in the nearly 40,000 housing unit shortage and that number currently stands around 28,000. But given that new construction has slowed due to rising interest rates, we expect to see that number rise again.  If you’ve been waiting for the market to drop, all the data shows that it’s not going to happen.  I would love to help you decide what the next step looks like for you with buying or selling and a market analysis is always free!
