Buying a Smithfield Utah Home: Using A Smithfield Utah Real Estate Agent- By: Lisa Udy
Smithfield Utah is a great place to buy a home for a number of reasons. The Smithfield real estate market is on the way up when it comes to home sales over the last 3 months, and if you are considering a place to buy a home in Cache Valley, a Smithfield UT home just might be the right home for you.
Smithfield is located North of Logan, UT and is the second largest city in all of Cache Valley. Over the last 6 months, as of September 30th, 2009 - There have been 59 homes that sold, and there are currently 77 homes on the market. This means that there is less then a years worth of inventory on the market.
What does this mean to you, a buyer?
This means that there are still plenty of homes to choose from, but it also means the market is stable. The market isn't flooded with inventory like some other markets in the US. That means your home is going to maintain it's value over time, and buying a home in Smithfield is going to be a solid investment.
When buying a home, you should consider a few factors before you go shopping. In Smithfield, there are many areas to consider, you can buy within the city, and close to traffic. There is also farmland, mountain views, and property closer to the Idaho border. After you have decided the location to your ideal home, you should consider using a real estate agent.
Why should you use a real estate agent?
That's a great question, and I have some answers for you to consider. A real estate agent has experience with contracts, have dealt with lenders and can refer you to a quality lender, and they have the knowledge of the current market conditions. A real estate agents sole purpose is to work with your best interests in mind, and to provide you with expert knowledge so you can make an educated decision.
A good real estate agent won't pressure you, nor will they tell you what to do, rather a good agent will keep you educated so you can make the best decision for you. Now that you have a real estate agent, it's time to go shopping, and find a great home in Smithfield.
When you are shopping for a home, to make the process easier and less stressful, I like to sit down with my buyers. We will create a list with two aspects, on one side I will have my buyers write down their "needs", and on the other side their "wants". By doing this, it will help you eliminate homes that are going to be the best suited to meet your needs.
When you're looking at homes, it's nice to have your list, and as you walk through each home, your list makes it easier to determine if the home is going to meet your needs. After shopping, to eliminate more homes, decide which homes meet your needs, and also have the most "wants". The home that meets all your needs, and has the most "wants" should be the home you consider to purchase.
Now that you have narrowed down your home search, you are going to be in the Smithfield Utah home of your dreams in no time. I hope you had a great experience, and you shouldn't worry about the future of the Smithfield real estate market, as all numbers point to a strong outlook for the future. Happy Buying!
