THE GIVING IT BACK AND PAYING IT FORWARD REAL ESTATE NEWSLETTER | JUNE 2019
Happy Birthday... Donald?
You guessed it right, June is Donald Trump’s Birthday Month.
BUT why would I mention this to YOU?
Well, since you have been kind enough to be a part of our business, I wanted to take the opportunity to give YOU a gift on Donald Trump's birthday. I am sure Mr. Trump doesn't mind. He seems to have plenty of stuff, so I'd like to celebrate his birthday by giving you (and those you know), TWO very special gifts!
Yes, TWO gifts.
Gift #1 Your Home Sold, Guaranteed, at Your Price or I'll Buy It*
Yes, this is the guarantee I am most famous for. And you will know that whether it's a super awesome real estate market or a housing recession, I have not wavered from this guarantee. The peace of mind from a guarantee like this is a fantastic gift. I can think of none better.
My team and I are committed to results. In fact, Results Oriented is one of our core values. For more than 30 years people have been coming to us when they want their home sold, at their price and with the least hassle. We look forward to the next 30 years of Guaranteed Results for area homeowners
Gift #2... Donations to Primary Children’s Hospital on Your behalf.
In last month's letter, I updated you on our goal of raising $10,000 for Primary Children’s Hospital this calendar year. In case you missed it, we donate a portion of our income from home sales to Children's. Their work in helping kids fight thru and survive nasty debilitating diseases like cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia as well as their work in early diagnosis of autism and spinal cord injuries is second to none! And as the leading not for profit hospital in our area, they depend on sponsorships and donations to continue their leading-edge care and to keep families expenses to a minimum.
Since that letter, we have received 7 referrals. That's 7 families wanting to buy or sell a home, referred to us by clients like you. This means we have been able to contribute an extra $1,655.00 toward this very worthy cause.
YOUR REFERRALS HELP THE KIDS! Keep them coming!
Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to my real estate sales team? Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service and ironclad guarantees but the kids at Primary Children’s Hospital will benefit as well.
Just give me a call or pass my number on to anyone you know considering buying or selling.
My number is 801.554.3743.

Life moves fast for some, and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth, rewarding one. Over the last two decades of helping thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you!
As we move forward this Summer, please know we are extremely thankful for you being a special part of our business.
Big Price Gains in Utah Housing Markets: Ogden, Salt Lake City & Provo
The housing markets of Salt Lake City, Provo, Ogden and other Northern Utah cities outpaced the nation in 2018, in terms of home-price gains. They’re expected to do more of the same through 2019 and into 2020.
Last week, we reported that Provo, Utah is one of the cities where millennials are buying homes in large numbers. This and other factors has led to big home-price gains in the Provo housing market.
But Provo isn’t the only city in Northern Utah with a hot housing market. Most of the cities in that region are outpacing the nation right now, in terms of year-over-year home price growth.
Real estate markets in Salt Lake City, Ogden and Orem are also experiencing above-average price gains, as of early spring 2019.
Utah Home Prices Outpace the Nation
Home prices in Utah rose faster than the national average in 2018, and during the first part of 2019. According to Zillow, the median home value for the state of Utah rose by 14% over the past year (as of March 2019). The nationwide median rose by 7.2% during that same 12-month period.
The company’s research team predicted that Utah’s median home value would rise by another 8.5% over the next 12 months, stretching into spring 2020.
Even bigger gains were recorded within the housing markets of Ogden, Orem, Provo and Salt Lake City. In those real estate markets, home prices rose rapidly over the past year or so (see below).
Looking forward, the latest housing forecasts suggest that these cities will continue to outpace the nation in 2020 — at least in terms of annual home-price gains.
In contrast, the median home value in all four of the Utah
