Utah Real Estate 2011 Trends Jan - June
The home market in Utah is experiencing an overall 9% decline in the number of sales from last year. Off-setting this declining figure is the fact that last year’s government incentive of $8,000 drove an additional 1,220 home sales in Utah. Prices also declined by 9% overall making homes even more affordable for new buyers. Rising rental rates and cash purchases by investors are expected to fuel additional purchases this year. Currently, over one forth of all home sales across the US are cash purchases. Heavy investor purchases may be signaling an up-swing in the home market. Below is a list of positive and negative trends for the Utah home market:

New Kitchen Trends for Utah Homes
April 10, 2010
What’s happening in Utah kitchens? A recent survey of home designers conducted by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) found that some existing kitchen trends will continue and some new ones are developing. Utah can expect to share these design trends for 2010 and beyond. Outlined below are some of the key trends noted by the NKBA.
Combination Cook Tops and Wall Ovens are gaining in popularity. Induction cooking is also gaining in popularity. Gas ranges still command the highest demand over electric cooking surfaces when gas is an available utility.
Dishwashers Drawers are expected to continue their upward climb against the traditional door that opens downward. The convenience of the smaller drawer dishwashers and their greater energy efficiency will see these units continue to climb in demand for years to come.

Utah Ranks Number 2 for Growth in the U.S.
December 23, 2009
Utah is the second fastest growing state in the United States during 2009. Wyoming leads the country with a population growth of 2.12% with Utah at a close second at 2.1%. The strong economy attracts more immigrants than most of the U.S. Utah also has the lowest death rate and the highest birth rate in the nation.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that Utah had 2.78 million people living in the state at mid-2009. Utah is expected to have a much more stable economy as the nation recovers from the largest economic downturn in decades. An expected additional seat in the U.S. Congress is another benefit to Utah's significant growth. With all the pluses of growth also come some challenges. Utah's public schools, roads and housing are likely to fall a bit behind as Utah continues to grow. Utah housing developers and home builders should find this news very welcoming, expecting newly constructed home to be in high demand as the nation's recovery builds steam. Utah's strong work force will continue to attract corporate investment and expansion into Utah.
