Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip of The Week: How Motivated Is The Seller?

By Diana
Sep 26, 2016

One of the most exciting moments in buying a Park City or Deer Valley home is when you make an offer on a property. When deciding on a fair offering price, you should take the situation of the seller into account. If the seller is desperate to close the sale, they may be open to lowering the price and/or offering incentives to sweeten the deal.

The seller might not say they are desperate, but there are certain clues that can point to their willingness to negotiate. For instance, find out how long the home has been on the market. If it has been listed for several months with several price reductions, the seller might accept a lower offer.

Ask your Park City REALTOR® to tell you what the seller originally paid for the home, and what equity they have in it. This can give you an idea on what they hope to get from their sale.

REALTORS® are expert negotiators, so be sure to use their help to get the best deal.  For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017.  Craig has been a full time Park City resident since 1973 and a full time real estate agent since 1978.

Deer Valley Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Green Building Makes You Smarter

By Diana
Sep 19, 2016

Our Deer Valley Real Estate tip of the week may give you even more reason to go green, besides the potential energy costs savings. It could improve your health and your thinking too, a new study finds.

Researchers from Harvard, Syracuse University, and SUNY Update Medical Center conducted a study to see how the built environment can influence the way you think. They studied participants in an environmentally controlled space in a lab for six days, changing the air quality to meet a typical office building, a green office building, and a green office building with enhanced ventilation. They did this by changing the amount of volatile organic compounds and CO2 in the air. Study participants were then given cognitive tests.

Participants performed at a rate of 61 percent higher on the cognitive tests in the greener building condition, and 101 percent higher in the enhanced green building condition compared to a typical office environment.

"Because this study was designed to reflect indoor environments encountered by large numbers of people every day, these findings have far ranging implications for worker productivity, student learning, and safety," according to the study. "Green building design that optimizes employee productivity and energy usage will require adopting energy efficient systems and informed operating practices to maximize the benefit to human health while minimizing energy consumption."
