Regardless of how you view the real estate glass – half-empty or half-full – there’s no avoiding the reality that the average interest rate for a 30 year fixed mortgage has dipped to a 16 month low of 3.97% to end the week.

While most homebuyers understand the tax ramifications/benefits of converting from renting to homeownership, many suspect the recent uptick in activity is more reflective of public confidence in the underpinning of our economy… Combined with a 30 year mortgage rate dipping to a 17 month low of 3.8%. With interest rates that low it’s hard not to spur interest in one of the greater assets and individual could own.

New Listings, Price Reductions and Closed Escrow’s

With 54 properties placed on the Southern Utah MLS Hot Sheet over the last 24-hours, it looks like the local Realtors have been living up to their namesake – and have been busy little bee’s this weekend. Primarily taking new listings. Of the 54 new properties placed on the boards MLS Hot Sheet, only one was to change its status from Active to Pending – the rest were new listings and price reductions.

Running the MLS gamut, we see homes listed from a high of $1,450,000 in the Green Springs area of Washington, to the slightly more affordable, sub $300,000 range in the Green Valley area of St. George Utah.

While it’s always nice to have plenty of homes to sell, as the holiday season rapidly approaches, we see the absorption rate for our inventory on the multiple listing service (MLS) in southern Utah ticking upwards – hitting nearly 7 months worth of supply. As the supply ramps up, giving buyers greater options in the breadth and scope of inventory to choose from, we also see the average days on market for a well priced listing dropping to below three months for the average home to close escrow.

One last thing, with the holiday season rapidly approaching, the American Red Cross is looking for a few good Americans to help pump up their dwindling base of life-saving blood. And they need your help! So, the Washington County Board of Realtors is encouraging their base to help energize participation in the American Red Cross ‘Blood Drive.

St. George Utah MLS HOT Sheet: New Listings, Pending Sales, Closed Escrows | September 18, 2014

St. George Utah – It’s a fine Thursday morning in the occasionally wet Southwest. As Realtors prepare to wake up and face a barrage of emails, asking about new listings, pending escrows, and what their neighbors house sold for? A handful of hard-working agents listed an additional 46 properties for sale yesterday in St. George – additionally three active listings received accepted contracts and now sit on the MLS in a pending status and one home successfully closed without a hiccup.

While Saturday and Sunday offer a respite for the average 9-to-5 workers, the weekend is generally considered a condensed version of Monday through Friday for the average Realtor. With Open houses, showings, listing presentations and a plethora of other required tasks to accomplish… it can seem a bit hectic. In preparation for that juggernaut of activity, it’s time to start printing flyers, organizing tours, and getting ready for today’s Washington County  Board of Realtors luncheon. Today, the WCBR will announce their boards election results and install the new officers and board of directors. So it’s just about time to get ready.

You’ve only two more days to make this a special week… Go out and make it count!
