About Buying a New Home-In Tooele County I am a very big fan of buying a new home, rather than one that has had previous owners. Also, I am really an advocate of that house being in Tooele County. That shouldn't come as a surprise to any one that knows me and knows about my love for this community and the families that live here. So when I read these articles about buying new construction, i can't help but look at each tip or suggestion from the standpoint of how it relates to buying a new home or condo in Tooele County. Here are some of the things i took away from the following articles. New home sales in Tooele County are less than the 9% nationally Tooele growth in New Construction is less than the 50% trumpeted countrywide. (that's about to change) Every $1,000 increase in price red...

First Time Home Buyer Mortgage Loans Tooele Utah Tooele, Utah First Time Home Buyer's mortgage guide Here is your guide to the 3 most popular home loans for First Time Home Buyers in Tooele but if you'd like a full list of SLC mortgages, go to http://www.spencerstott.com/loan-programs/. The Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage is by far the most popular Tooele mortgage. These mortgages (FRM for fixed rate mortgages) offer a stable interest rate for the entire life of the loan and all monthly payments remain constant. 20% down is usually required, but not always. FRM loans terms range from 10 to 40 years. The second most popular loan is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), and it is a constantly fluctuating loan. So it only makes sense that it's called an 'adjustable rate'. The interest rate y...

A great night for Group 1 Real Estate Saturday night was another great night for Group 1 Real Estate. It was our annual Tooele County Association of Realtors Installation and Awards banquet, an opportunity to get together with friends and celebrate another great year in Tooele County Real Estate. It has become fairly commonplace to watch Berna Sloan clean up at the awards portion of the evening. This year was no exception. Berna received TCAR's 'Elite Top Producer' award, something she has done every year since the awards inception. This award is given to those Realtors that rank in the top 5% in sales volume for the year.  She also received TCAR's 'Education' award, another one she wins every year. It is awarded again to Tooele County Realtors that are in the top 5% of education hours ...

New homes in Tooele City - planning or cheering? So, am I a Tooele City Planning Commissioner or a Tooele County Cheerleader? Based on our last planning and zoning commission meeting, I'm not so sure... I'm a very lucky man in many ways. I'm a real estate Broker/owner with Group 1 Real Estate, working with the best Realtor anywhere, my wife Berna. I live in a great County in an amazing State. Most of the kids have grown, and my wife is an enabler. This all combines to create an opportunity to involve myself in many of my passions on a regular basis.  I'm 5 minutes from arguably the greatest natural terrain road racing track in North America, Miller Motor Sports Park to indulge in my need for speed. I'm active in the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce, allowing me to hob nob with the best...

Home Loan Options in Tooele Utah Tooele, Utah Area Mortgages Here's your guide to mortgages in Tooele, Utah. Tooele, Utah's most popular mortgage option is called a Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage. From day one, you're paying the same interest rate and monthly payment when you use a Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage (FRM). For the most part, a down payment of 20% is required, but that is not always the case. The life of this mortgage ranges 10-40 years. Adjustable Rate Mortgages or "ARM" (cool acronym, huh?) are ever-changing. That's why they call it an 'adjustable rate'. The interest rate you pay changes as the market changes. Your interest rate is recalculated yearly. Monthly payments also change when your interest rate does. Usually, the interest rate is lower than what you'd pay for...

  The Tooele City UT Real Estate stats are in, and things are looking up for the Tooele market. Number of houses or condos sold compared to last year during the 2nd quarter increased almost 30%, and the average sales price was up almost 17%. If interest rates stay reasonable, I think we can say that Real Estate in Tooele is back. These numbers are designed to help home buyers and home sellers in the Tooele market evaluate activity and make informed decisions. All of the numbers have been taken from Tooele houses listed on the Wasatch Front MLS and comparing them to what happened to listings  from the same time frame a year ago. If you have looked at reports about other towns in Tooele County you can compare the difference in activity as well as the overall statistics in Tooele County. H...

Tooele Real Estate - Renting Versus Buying a House One of the geat questions I am asked about Tooele Real Estate is about renting versus buying a house. We don't do a lot of rentals here, but occasionally when the selling market was so bad, we would try to put together a rent to own or a lease option program that would match up a buyer that had scratched up credit, with a seller that was trying to avoid foreclosure. Those days seem to be gone now so we are going to talk here about the traditional question of buying vs renting a house in Tooele UT. There are several factors when deciding on renting versus buying, and it can differ depending on the real estate market and your personal finances. The A Comparison Of Renting Versus Buying Tooele Properties in this blog can help you make an i...

You've gotta know the territory! List with a local Agent 'You've gotta know the territory!' That line from the opening scene of my favorite movie musical (yes, my man card is now on probationary status), 'The Music Man', popped into my head yesterday afternoon after I finished counting backwards from ten. All this stemmed from a conversation with an agent who had made an appointment to see one of Berna's listings. As background, I need to explain that B and I very seldom wander too far away from our comfort zone when it comes to listing or selling homes. Tooele County is where we live and where we work. Between us, we've lived in Stockton, Stansbury Park, Tooele, Erda. We've taken kids to school in Grantsville. We've spent time at Dugway and Rush Valley and Vernon. We've also spent many...

  It's official, Tooele is a friendly place! So says Forbes Online, so it must be true! Forbes, in conjunction with Nextdoor.com looked at a bunch of different data gathered from many sources on small cities ranging in population from 5500 to 150,000 in population and came to the decision that Tooele is the 10th friendliest town in America. According to a recent article by Rachel Madison of the the Tooele Transcript-Bulletin, the companies used data collected from sources as diverse as the US Census, the FBI, the Chronicle of Philanthropy and City-Data.com. They came up with 5 data points to rank the towns. Crime rate, charitable giving and college graduation rates were some of the criteria used. Voter activity and community events were also important. However, my favorite of all the cr...
