There are a number of reasons for buying your dream home in Tooele Utah.
The best way to explain what they are is to compare them to already identified reasons for buying a house.
With that in mind, I am copying and pasting an article from KCM that appeared in my blog last week. It gave answers to 3 questions a home buyer should ask before getting a new home for the family.
In addition to re-posting, I am going to comment on some of the ideas that will explain why I think you should consider Tooele County as a potential location for that ideal house or condo. Here goes. Enjoy!
1. Why am I buying a home in the first place?
2. Where are home values headed?
3. Where are mortgage interest rates headed?
I hope you found this info helpful. You probably realize by now that the 3 areas we just discussed can be broken down into the following.
- Interest rates
Lifestyle In Tooele County
When you compare lifestyle with other places along the Wasatch Front & the Salt Lake Valley, Tooele can’t be beat.
Looking for horse property, or just extra large lots for a big garden or room for the kids to roam? Look in Grantsville UT or the south eastern part of Tooele City, where large lots with animal rights are the rule rather than the exception.
Want to live in a newer more upscale community? Look for homes for sale in Stansbury Park UT. You can have access to golf, boating and community amenities. Stansbury is a great place to downsize to a condominium or town-home.
Tooele County Value
A quick and easy way to determine value is to compare the cost of similar properties in different areas ( those you want to compare against). Lets see how much it will cost to buy a 4 bedroom 3 bath home on a half acre in a few communities along the Wasatch Front.
- Cost of 4 bedroom 3 bath home on a half acre lot in Tooele County
- Price of 4 bedroom 3 bath home on a half acre lot in Salt Lake County
- Price of 4 bedroom 3 bath home on half acre lot in Herriman UT
- 4 bedroom 3 bath home on half acre lot in Riverton Utah
What a huge discrepancy. Obviously there are many differences in quality and location, but if you drill down and match these listings with your idea of your dream home you can better determine value.
Future Interest Costs
No one can really predict where interest rates are headed. But 2 things are clear, 1. Interest rates will probably go up. 2. The cost of financing a home will be the same in Tooele County as in any other neighborhood. No advantage here! …. But,…………. part of what makes a dream home so great is , “it is affordable”.. So, since we think rates are on the up-tick, you had better move soon. So, there you have it.
Hope this was helpful, and that if you are ready to take that next step and start looking for that new home you will check me out and give me a call 435-840-5029.
