Whether the current economy favors buyers or sellers as you’re buying/selling your Park City home, there are a few tried-and-true rules of thumb when delving into the real estate market. Some ascribe to the “location, location, location” maxim, but when considering Park City real estate, there really are no bad locations, with each area of town offering a truly broad range of housing types and availability.

Engaging a realtor is the first step for many, and it’s become more common to interview prospects to ensure the best fit. Home specialists at TLC suggest the following 10 questions be asked:

  • Can I see your references?
  • Can I have a CMA for the area?
  • Is this area growing or declining?*
  • Do you work solo, or as part of a team?
  • How many clients are you currently representing?
  • How will you market my home?
  • How do your realtor fees work?
  • What experience do you have?
  • How will you keep me informed?
  • What are the drawbacks of my home?

*Salt Lake City continually tops the Forbes’ lists for availability and creation of jobs, particularly in the tech sectors of aerospace and electronic. The U.S. Census listed Heber City, Utah, as the seventh fastest growing “micro” area in the country between 2010 & 2011, but it’s the presence of headquarters for international companies like Rossignol and that most easily demonstrates the strength of the local economy.

Home sellers are often so close, emotionally, to their biggest investment to date, that being objective when identifying their home’s flaws becomes difficult. I will come in and help determine which areas need immediate attention before the house is listed in order to help ensure your home sells as quickly as possible.

The professionals at encourage homebuyers to ask the following questions of their lender:

  • What is the interest rate on this mortgage?
  • How many discount and origination points will I pay?
  • What are the closing costs?
  • When can I lock the interest rate and what will it cost me to do so?
  • Is there a prepayment penalty on this loan?
  • What is the minimum down payment required for this loan?
  • What are the qualifying guidelines for this loan?
  • What documents will I have to provide?
  • How long will it take to process my loan application?
  • What might delay approval of my loan?

It’s been a long five years since the downturn in the economy took with it what had become a robust real estate market, but all signs point to increased consumer confidence and a readiness among buyers to reenter the marketplace, though the recent tough times have made them a savvier customer by all accounts.
