Silver Creek Village Development Approved

By diana
Apr 16, 2014

map silver creekThis week,  Summit County officials approved a 240-acre residential and commercial development that would be located in the southeast corner of Silver Creek Junction, here in Park City.  The proposed development called Silver Creek Village, would feature 939 multi-family units, 351 single-family units, and 50,000 square feet of commercial space.  It would also have 10 community parks, and a community garden.

The site plan for the Silver Creek Village development first went before the county in 2011.  Though the development does contact 240 acres, the majority of the development would be clustered in a space of about 100 acres, leaving plenty of open space.  Developers want it to be a "trail friendly" neighborhood and hope to have connections to Silver Creek Estates and Highland Estates.

Developers have submitted draft documents to the county and are waiting to hear back.  If approved, utilities could begin to be installed late this summer, with construction to begin in late 2015.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Foyer Anyone?

By Delia Reece
Apr 14, 2014

foyerYou never get a second chance to make a first impression.  It’s an old adage, but a true one.  Once those first two minutes are up, a buyer has already decided if your house is the one for them.

That’s why the foyer is just as important as the kitchen, the deck, or the master bedroom.  When a buyer walks in, you want their eyes to pop and in a good way.

Is the foyer spotless, uncluttered, but eye catching?  If it’s not, time to rearrange.  De-clutter first.  Remove any of the unnecessary pieces you’ve put there because they just didn’t ‘fit’ anywhere else.  They can go to another room or be put in storage, as long as they’re out of the way.

Second, that credenza that holds the family tree?  If the credenza looks great where it is, leave it, but remove the photos.  No matter what part of the house you’re in,  buyers needs to imagine themselves in there, not you, so pack away the photos and keep them safe for the new house.    Let the buyer walk in and see the space with them in it!

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Tax Savings On Your Vacation Home

By Delia Reece
Apr 09, 2014

Park City HomeApril 15th is just around the corner, and if you own a 2nd home in Park City or Deer Valley, it’s time to take a look at the tax advantages that come along with your vacation home.

If you and your family use your vacation home exclusively, you can write off all the interest you pay on your mortgage - up to $1.1 million of the total debt you owe for all of your properties. And you can also deduct your property taxes.

When you rent out your home more than 14 days a year, the tax rules get more complicated, because you need to separate out costs between private vacation use, maintenance and rental use. You can still deduct a percentage of your mortgage and property taxes, plus property management fees, and you can even claim depreciation deductions on 80% of your home’s value.

Whether your Park City vacation home is reserved for private or rental use, be sure to consult your tax advisor to see how you can save at tax time.  For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017 or toll free at 866-709-8018.
