We’re fans of Stoneleigh Heights for many reasons. First, the location is pretty stellar. You’re ideally situated in the dead center of real estate’s ideal Venn diagram: comfort, convenience, and amenities. Those amenities are pretty alluring – this home is a quick, casual walk away from trails, the SunCrest Clubhouse, pool, and market. Perched on the view side of the street means year-round views of Salt Lake County out the backyard, it truly captures the essence of SunCrest vistas. The inside is your comfort haven away from the hectic day; it’s warm, inviting, and overflowing with light. The kitchen connects directly to the family room and there’s no doubt the setup can handle cooks, kids, and the upcoming college football season parties. Upstairs has a trio of bedrooms including the master (where you find the home’s best views), 2 full bathrooms, and the laundry room. Smart, right? Downstairs is light and bright with a walkout basement. It’s current set up is a theater room (yours to keep, btw) but we’ve seen games rooms, play rooms, bedrooms, and family rooms. Translation: room for what you want. This place exemplifies the SunCrest Lifestyle at an extraordinary price point. Comfort, convenience, amenities – in our experience, homes with this trifecta of traits tend to sell fast.
Do you know that feeling when you walk into a place and it just feels warm and peaceful? The Germans call it Gemütlichkeit (look it up) and we’ve been feeling it ever since we came through this house the first time. From the street, the landscaping is simple to maintain but the curb appeal welcomes you with open arms. Inside is tidy, clean, and has been gently used by its current owners. Laminate floors were added to make cleaning up one less thing to worry about. Now you have the ease of single-level living with less time needed for maintenance, and more time for doing the things you love. Maybe spend that free time downstairs? The large family room is open and inviting. The sellers love game night with family, where littles love the secret hideout under the stairs. We also like the idea of spending that time out in the backyard. It’s fully fenced and suitable for everything from barbecues, corn hole, or keeping an eye on the Salt Lake County views from your custom pergola. Watching SunCrest view are always worry free and time well spent. Whether you want to move in and make it your own, or keep everything as is, a home like this will always carry those warm, cozy feelings of Gemütlichkeit.
This home has so much going for it that we’re having a hard time keeping this concise. Located in Eagle Ridge, a quiet pocket community in SunCrest that’s filled with mountain and valley views, it’s pretty rare to find it for sale as homes in this ‘hood rarely find their way to the market. Built in 2013, it’s nearly new and on point with today’s home design trends. The upstairs is highlighted by an oversized master bedroom so impressive that you just might refer to it as “The Master Wing.” Add 3 more bedrooms, a laundry room, and a promenade that overlooks the open family room and kitchen for an impressive level. Not be be outdone, downstairs has 9-foot ceilings and is finished with another bed, bath, and large family room. Our favorite is the main floor space because of just how versatile it is. A trio of multifunctional rooms can handle a telecommuter, entertainer, bookworm, or dinner host with ease. If we had time, we’d go on and on about the family room. Expansive, light, stunning; you’ll just have to see it for yourself and find your own adjectives when you see the 25-foot ceilings and walls lined with windows, leading directly to the magazine-worthy kitchen. White cabinets, stainless appliances, granite countertops; we can’t stop talking about it and neither will you. Directly off the kitchen you’ll find access to a lush, green backyard that backs right up to a park. There’s so much more to say, but you should just come and see this beauty for yourself.
August SunCrest Market Update
A question we’re regularly asked is “When is the best time or month to list my SunCrest Home?” It’s a simple question but the answer isn’t always so. We often say it depends. We do agree that figuring out the right time to sell can help maximize the sale price of your home and take some stress out of the process, it’s a little more complicated than rambling off a specific day, week, or month even. Every home is unique, and every homeowner has different circumstances.
For fun, we found an online real estate database company touting May 1-15 as the best time to sell your home. Further, they say listing on a Saturday will give you a leg up. According to their national data, they suggest that homes listed for sale in this window sold almost two weeks faster than average, and for $2,500 more. But does that apply here in SunCrest? Lets take a peek at their claims.
Homes listed for sale in this window sold almost two weeks faster than average. This measurement, or “Days On Market (DOM)” is a factor the real estate industry uses to to gauge how long home are for sale before an offer is accepted. The graphs below illustrate a 3 year history of the median and average time a home here in SunCrest is on the market before receiving an offer. While the time spent on the market varies throughout the year in SunCrest, the theory of selling faster when listed in May isn’t always true.
Homes sold for $2,500 more. This seems easy to measure, but SunCrest has affordable townhomes as well as custom multimillion dollar estates, so each neighborhood requires careful consideration and precise attention to detail. For sake of argument, lets take a step back and look at SunCrest as a whole. While SunCrest average median prices are definitely up, the theory of selling for $2,500 more when listed in May just doesn’t hold true for homes on the hill.
Sooo….when is the best time? When you’re ready. We believe every homeowner has different considerations and and every home has a story. Why are you moving? What sold you on your home when you bought it? When do you need to move by? Do you need to sell before you can move and/or buy your next home? Are there updates or modifications that can add value to your home? How does your home compare to others in the area? While each season may bring about different motivation for buyers, we have a hard time saying there is ever a “best time” to buy or sell in SunCrest.
Our SunCrest Market Update is a hyper-local analysis of the most up-to-date information regarding the SunCrest real estate market.
Before you roll your eyes at us for taking about SunCrest views yet again, hear us out. Where else can you wake up looking out over a massive lake, or twinkling city lights, or be inspired by the towering snow-capped mountains? You just can’t find that anywhere else in SLC. So when a home like this becomes available and pairs those unbeatable views with an abundance of chic updates, we just can’t shutup about it. Can we be frank about the windows? There are a lot! Each placed for loads of natural light and never ending scenery. The main floor is lined with sturdy, half-inch red oak hardwood floors. In the kitchen, the sellers added sleek grey granite countertops, white cabinets, and a gas range. What’s more is how they removed an obnoxious wall and replaced it with an oversized bar that flows seamlessly to the dining and family room, which overlooks Salt Lake County. That open concept is always a win. The upstairs of this place is unlike any other you’ve seen. The oversized laundry can easily double as a hobby or craft room, thanks to its cozy built-in workstation. The master is tucked along the back and received a bathroom remodel that’s equally stylish and sensible to the home’s design. Do us a favor, though? Take a peek out of the master bedroom windows and see how that feels. You’ll thank us later. The downstairs was recently finished and added a wide open second family room, bedroom, and full bathroom. With summer well underway, we’re pretty excited about this backyard. Step out to the deck to fill your lungs with fresh air and get a face full of views. Call your friends, fire up your barbecue, and pour yourself a bevvie – this backyard is a definite showstopper. With a well thought out floor plan, unmatched views and tasteful updates, what else are you waiting for?
Lights, camera, action; here’s a home in three parts that deserve to be famous. Lights: Daylight or moonlight, natural light pours into this easy-bresy, wide open, SunCrest 2-Story. The kitchen, family, and dining spaces are connected seamlessly to each other, creating one extraordinary open space. Camera: Oh, it’s camera-ready alright. Those views of Utah County and Utah Lake can be seen from the home’s deck and second story and make you want to snap a photo to make your friends jealous. The kitchen, which is bigger than those found in similar floorpans in the ‘hood, was expanded when the home was built. In other words, it’s ready to take on the most discerning kitchen director and can handle any size cast you dare to throw at it. Be sure to peruse the photos of the hardwoods that line the entire main line floor. Action: Well, you’re close to it all. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs, the crew is close enough together to create a lasting ensemble, but with enough space to call their own. We also love the bonus loft as a play space, office space, or open space – take your pick! Out back (which is landscaped, fenced, and nestled in natural Gambel Oak) is accessible from both the deck and walkout basement. The community center, a couple of neighborhood parks, and miles of trails are all within walking distance. Don’t wait for the final call, this one is picture perfect.
