SunCrestLifestyle.com

Welcome to the new, fresh, and completely redesigned SunCrest Lifestyle.

Our vision with suncrestlifestyle.com has always been a website for SunCrest to call “home.” From the events calendar, SunCrest News, highlighting the SunCrest “lifestyle”, or the ‘buzz’ about our featured SunCrest properties, we’ve received positive feedback from past, present, future residents and those just curious about our community since our original launch over 10 years ago.

As technology continues to evolve, we’ve recognized our need to change. That brings us to today, the new suncrestlifestyle.com! Over the last several months, we’ve researched and analyzed what features you, our users, wanted and used the most.

Life In SunCrest

Life in SunCrest is different. Our people. Our homes. Our scenery. Our lifestyle. Residents, new neighbors, and general inquiries – this section is all about SunCrest.

SunCrest News

We are a passionate group of people. In this section, we’ll write about it all – the good, the bad, and the ugly. With a few clicks, you can receive email updates to stay informed.

Events

SunCrest is a vibrant, active community where there’s always something to do. There are several events to look forward to every year, with new and different activities always being added. Check back often to view the latest happenings.

SunCrest Market Update

One of our favorite sections. Our old site was limited in what we could do to bring the visual real estate information residents enjoy. We’ve created a custom page where once a month we will crunch the numbers and bring you a hyper-local analysis of the SunCrest real estate market. We’ve also made it easy to have this sent to you once it’s published.

Featured Properties

We focus our business close to home. We wanted (and, admittedly, needed) a more visual, informative, user friendly, tablet/mobile responsive place to showcase our featured SunCrest homes. We improved our logo, our branding, and our marketing to reflect the SunCrest Lifestyle. For those interested in the latest SunCrest properties, we’ve made it simple to get them sent right to your inbox.

We are so excited about our new community site and hope you enjoy it! Thank you for visiting.

Draper City Open Space Master Plan

By Scott Steadman / June 11, 2015 / 0 Comments

Draper Open Space

Project Map

Future Development in SunCrest

Future Development

The City is updating the Corner Canyon Regional Park Master Plan to include all City open space along the Traverse Mountains. The “Project Map” above shows land Draper City already owned (light green) and land purchased at ~$2,125 an acre from Zions bank (lime green). The other image is future development.

When the City purchased land from Zions Bank in 2012, then Mayor and City Council reiterated their intent was to preserve as much of the land as open space, but mentioned they would look for ways to recoup the costs of the purchase.

Since the Zions purchase, Draper City has surplussed (surplus is a formality the City follows for land they usually intend to sell) 160 acres of the ~2,400 acres.

Of the current surplussed property, residents have seen some areas progress towards development. [See: Mercer Mountain Estates] This particular parcel, along with 20 acres surplussed in 2014 was included to help facilitate a settlement between David Mast and Draper City.

Regarding the 40 acres of City owned land, City Planner David Dobbins explained  “Draper City purchased nearly 2,400 acres of property from Zions Bank at a cost of $5,100,000, or $2,125 per acre. Therefore, the cost to Draper City to acquire the 40 acres being considered as a settlement with DJI was $85,000. The 40 acres to be developed represents 1.66% of the property purchased by Draper City from Zions Bank.” The Council voted in March 4-1 to move forward with the settlement with SunCrest resident Bill Colbert being the lone vote.

This particular parcel of prime land offers magnificent views of Salt Lake County, Mt. Timpanogos, and Utah County. When asked about what other areas were considered, the City said it considered “many other areas but couldn’t come to an agreement.” Most of the City Council is also quick to point out that the original master plan included more development.

As former City owned land is being developed, many residents are eager to see the City work towards a master open space plan and hopefully “put to bed” the uncertainty of (more) future developments.

Residents are encouraged to get involved by attending planning and council meetings or by following online at planwebsite.com

May SunCrest Market Update

By Scott Steadman / June 3, 2015 / 0 Comments

Vacation Homes Surging

According to the 2015 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey from the National Association of Realtors, it’s not just primary homes that have seen an upturn in the real estate market–vacation home sales were up 57.4% from 2013. Vacation home sales accounted for 21% of all transactions nationwide in 2014, the highest since 2003.

The study also uncovered an interesting fact: Nearly half of all vacation home buyers were looking for a BIGGER home so friends and family could visit. Access to mountains, rivers, and outdoor recreation were the main features that appealed most to those buyers when considering their purchase.

We expect Baby Boomers (those born from 1946-1964) to remain particularly active in the vacation home market as they move closer to retirement. Many Boomers are considering buying second homes now, which they will then convert into their primary residence upon retirement. We believe that as these Boomers become more confident in real estate as a long-term investment, vacation home sales will remain a steady part of all real estate transactions.

Our Take:

It’s difficult to pin down the exact number of homes in SunCrest that have been purchased as vacation homes. SunCrest offers a desirable lifestyle for those seeking hiking, biking, skiing, and being close to nature. If you or anyone you know is interested in a vacation home, we believe SunCrest’s natural beauty and ideal location make it an ideal place to own*.

*Vacation/second homes must adhere to Draper City Code and SunCrest CC&R’s as they pertain to being used as rentals.

Steps To Buying Your Home 

By Scott Steadman / May 1, 2015 / 0 Comments

You’ve found the home you can see yourself living in, now what? There are several stages of the buying process you will go through before you can officially call it your own including:

STEP 1 – Find Your Realtor

Hiring a Realtor is the best thing you can do to ensure you find the right home, for the right price, and have a hassle-free transaction. A Realtor can help you:

  • Understand the local market and current house prices
  • Access the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for available properties, expired properties, prices of comparable homes, and details about homes you’d like to see
  • Find properties that aren’t available yet to the general public
  • Organize and complete all the paperwork to make an offer and close
  • Navigate the maze of offers and counter-offers to ensure you get the best deal

Meet with your Realtor to make sure you’re comfortable with them. Some good questions to ask a real estate agent are:

  • How long have you been a real estate agent?
  • Is real estate your full-time job?
  • How many homes do you help clients buy/sell/build each year?
  • What agency do you work for and how long have they been in business?
  • How experienced are you in the area in which I’m looking to buy a home?
  • What’s your plan to help me find the right home?
  • How often and by what means will we communicate?

STEP 2 – Figure Out Your Financing

Before you can go out searching for a home, it’s necessary to narrow down the price range in which you’re looking. Meet with a lender–your Realtor should be able to recommend an above-board broker–and see what you qualify for.

Remember that being pre-qualified is different than being pre-approved. Pre-qualification is a bit looser and requires little or no documentation, while being pre-approved gives you a much firmer idea of what you may be able to purchase. Being pre-approved usually increases your chance of negotiating a better deal.

The biggest favor you can do for yourself when figuring out your financing is to keep one question in mind: “What do I want to pay for each month.” Ask your mortgage lender about monthly payments, not just the total loan amount.

Avoid the pitfall of thinking, “How much do I qualify for.” This method of “maxing out” your monthly income can tie you into a high monthly payment and leave little cash for you to spend each month.

Remember also that many things like monthly charitable contributions don’t even show up on a lender’s radar when they’re determining how much you can afford. Approaching your mortgage with a monthly payment mentality vs. a total loan amount mentality will help you find a house that will truly make your comfortable.

STEP 3 – Describe Your Dream House

What do you want in a house? Now that you’ve determined your budget, you can realistically describe what you’re looking for. Come up with a description of your dream house. Write it down, even. This will help your Realtor find only the houses that interest you most.
Some criteria to consider:

Home Features

  • Square footage
  • Floor plan
  • Style of home
  • Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
  • Bonus rooms – home theatre, game room, sauna
  • Acreage of lot
  • Maintenance of home/yard
  • Repairs needed
  • Age of home
  • Garage size
  • Closet space
  • View
  • Guest rooms/guest house
  • Ability to entertain
  • Decks/patios/porches
  • Hot tubs
  • Fireplaces
  • Furnace
  • Air conditioning

Neighborhood Features

  • Location – proximity to freeways, work, pubic transportation, local attractions
  • Setting – neighborhood, quiet street, busy frontage
  • Traffic
  • Corner lot vs. middle of the street
  • School boundaries
  • Nearby parks
  • Sense of community – seniors, young couples, mixed

Financial Features

  • Price
  • Homeowners’ Association fees
  • Taxes
  • Potential for home appreciations
  • Value of nearby homes
  • Frequency of home sales
  • Time frame to complete construction

STEP 4 – Hit the Street

With your financial situation nailed down and your dream home description in hand, your Realtor will help you select some homes to view. Working with your schedule, they will set up appointments for you to tour some homes you’ve pre-selected as potential homes of interest.

Tour these homes and ask lots of questions. A good Realtor knows what to look for in a home–wiring, furnace age, roof condition, insulation, potential problems, and costly fixes in the future. An experienced Realtor also has a trained eye to point out quality construction or functionally obsolescent floor plans. If they can’t answer your questions themselves, they’ll contact the home’s seller to find the answer.

STEP 5 – Select a Home & Make an Offer

Once you’ve found the home you want, it’ time to make an offer. Your agent should have been through this many times, and they can walk you through the process. They can do comparable-home searches, help you find a good appraiser, and put together a good offer.

After you submit your offer, the home’s seller can either accept it, reject it, or make a counter-offer. There is a fair amount of paperwork involved from the offer stage through closing.

STEP 6 – Home Inspection

Before you buy a car, you take it for a test-drive. With homes you don’t have that luxury, but you can send in a pro to look under the hood.

A certified home inspector gives the home you’ve offered to buy a thorough inspection. He will look for everything from structural integrity to electrical wiring to plumbing and beyond. This is an important step in the home-buying process, and one that many buyers don’t take seriously. What’s that saying? An ounce of prevention…

If the home inspector reports any problems that give you pause, you may still proceed with your offer and include repairs as a condition of purchase. Or, you may have the right to withdraw your offer.

STEP 7 – Appraisal

Appraisals are designed to protect buyers, sellers, and lending institutions. They provide a reliable, independent valuation of a tract of land and the structure on it, whether it’s a house or a skyscraper.

The appraised value of a property is what the bank thinks it’s worth, and that amount is determined by a professional, third-party appraiser. The appraiser’s valuation is based on a combination of comparative market sales and inspection of the property.

If you appraisal comes in too low it can be a problem. Usually the seller’s and the buyer’s real estate agents respond by looking for recent and pending sales of comparable homes. Sometimes this can influence the appraisal. If the final appraisal is well below what you have agreed to pay, you can renegotiate the contract or cancel it.

STEP 8 – Closing

You’ve almost made it! After the final offer has been solidified and any conditions met, the home is ready for closing. Closing is the meeting where the transaction is finalized. This usually takes place at a title company. Here you will sign final documents to purchase the home and transfer title of ownership.

Closing is different than funding. You don’t actually take ownership of a property until your mortgage has funded and recorded; when the “check clears the bank” and it is recorded with the local government. In most cases, this occurs the first business day after closing, and this is when you get the keys to your new home.

Congratulations! You’re a homeowner.

Why Use a Realtor When Buying?

By Scott Steadman / May 1, 2015 / 0 Comments

Looking for a home can be a daunting task. The purchase process is full of paperwork and pitfalls–hardly a place you want to be on your own when dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars. Using the services of a Realtor puts someone on your side who’s done it all before. A Realtor can help you find a home, navigate the purchasing process, and hook you up with industry professionals you’ll need. Best of all, you pay no more as a buyer for their representation!

Finding a Home

Where do you begin? With a Realtor, it starts by defining what you want in a home. After helping hundreds clients find their perfect home, Robyn and Scott know how to listen to your “dream house” description and translate it into a workable search criteria. With your standards set, we do the legwork looking for your home. Realtors have access to the MLS system–a huge database of available homes where brand new listings can show up even before a “For Sale” sign is placed in a yard. By networking with other Realtors, a good agent can learn of homes soon-to-be on the market and get you first look at these homes.

As SunCrest’s most experienced and knowledgeable Realtors, Robyn and Scott know the neighborhood’s every detail–each floor plan, each builder’s history, each street’s unique charm. We’ve helped hundred of families find the home in SunCrest that they were looking for.

Once you’ve settled on a few homes of interest, Robyn and Scott make all the arrangements to tour these homes at a time that fits your schedule. After touring literally thousands of homes in our careers, we know what to look for; things like the age of the furnace, possible code violations, quality of craftsmanship and hidden damage, to name a few. Having a Realtor on your side doesn’t just mean getting answers, it means knowing the right questions to ask.

Navigating the Purchase Process

Once you’ve found the home you want, buying it means much more than writing a check. Having a realtor means having a seasoned veteran on your side who’s been through the process hundreds of times before. What should you offer? What if they make a counter-offer? Can you structure the offer to make the seller pay closing costs?

What about your mortgage? With 30 years of experience, Robyn and Scott have rock-solid relationships with a variety of mortgage lenders and can recommend one that will give you star treatment. We can also recommend home inspectors, appraisers, or other services you need as you find the home you’ve been dreaming of.

As a Buyer You Pay Nothing

Realtors are paid on a commission already set by a home’s seller. That means you pay nothing extra for having a Realtor on your side.

Robyn and Scott bring almost three decades of experience, knowledge of the process, convenience, and a strong voice to your side of the table.

When buying a house, the question isn’t, “Why use a Realtor.” The real question is, “Why not?”

Steps To Selling Your Home

By Scott Steadman / May 1, 2015 / 0 Comments

STEP 1 – Deciding to Sell

Thinking of selling your home? How do you decide if it’s the right time?  Consider the following:

Timing Did your next-door neighbor’s house just go up for sale? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Is there a new development going up down the street? Is it winter and new construction has slowed?

Finances What kind of taxes will you have to pay? Do you have cash to pay closing costs?

The X Factor Are you being transferred? Can you postpone your transfer? Called up for military duty?

Consider these things and get a feel for the market. The best thing you could do would be to talk to professionals. Certainly a Realtor would be able to talk about the market, especially a Realtor with experience in your specific neighborhood. A good tax attorney or accountant may also prove to be valuable.

STEP 2 – Find a Realtor

Hiring an agent when you sell your home means you have experience on your side. You gain a more powerful position on your side of the negotiating table by having someone who’s done it all many times before.  When selling, your agent should:

  • Help you decide if it’s the right time to sell
  • Determine the fair market value of your home
  • Help you set a price for your home
  • Advise when and if price reductions would be beneficial Advise how to prepare your home for the market
  • Create a marketing plan unique to your home
  • Enlist your home on the Multiple Listing Service
  • Provide information (electronic and print) to potential home buyers
  • Schedule open houses and tours of your home
  • Provide references to needed services (appraisers, lenders, inspectors)
  • Receive and explain offers
  • Write counter-offers
  • Help finalize closing plans

So how do you choose the right Realtor? The most important factor is experience. Find a real estate agent who has extensive experience in your neighborhood. Don’t just sign up with anyone, ask questions!  A few questions to consider:

  • Do you work full time or part time?
  • How long have you been selling homes in this area?
  • Are you familiar with the areas I’m considering?
  • What type of homes do you usually handle?
  • What percentage of your business comes from referrals and repeat clients?
  • How many sales have you closed?
  • How many homes did you sell last year?
  • What percentage of your listings sold during the listing period?
  • How close to the asking price do your homes sell?
  • On average, how many days do homes stay on the market?
  • Will you guide us as we prepare the house to be shown?
  • Will we receive a copy of the marketing plan?
  • How will you advertise our home?
  • In what publications and when will ads run?
  • Will you employ an Internet marketing program?
  • When do you plan to hold open houses?
  • How will you advertise an open house?
  • Do you plan to do anything else to get the word out?
  • How often can we expect to be updated, even if there’s nothing to report?

STEP 3 – Set a Price

Your agent will help you set a price for the home that fits your needs with the market demands. They will search for homes in the area comparable to yours that have recently sold to ascertain the fair market value of your home. From there, you can generate a game plan to set the price based on your needs. Setting the price high can prolong your sales time and limit the number of people through your home, but setting it too prevents you from getting paid what your house is worth.

Make sure your agent knows your neighborhood. Often neighborhoods have “micro-trends” that aren’t prevalent in the overall market. One neighborhood might be “hot” and outside agents know nothing about it. Select the right agent for your neighborhood, and they’ll help you select the right price for your home.

STEP 4 – Make a Plan

You’ve got a great home with the right price. How are you going to get the word out? Your agent should create a custom plan for your home. In Robyn Foulger’s and Scott Steadman’s case, they prepare a tailor-made, proprietary 25-Point Marketing Plan for each home they list.

Your marketing plan should identify the agents’ responsibilities and commitments. How many open houses will they hold? How will they market online? How will they market in print?

And what will you do? What home repairs will you undertake? What needs to be replaced?

Working together with your agent you should find a plan that fits your needs and lifestyle, and one that will get your home’s information to the best buyers. Then it’s time to put it to work.

STEP 5 – The Offer

This is it! It’s time to receive offers. Together with your agent, you’ll review offers sent in by real estate agents. If there are multiple offers, you’ll have to decide which to accept. Do you take the high offer with several conditions, or the lower one with no conditions? Talk to your agent to determine what’s best for you.

Some things to consider when looking at offers:

Take Your Time
Don’t get in such a rush or panic that you settle for getting the offer terms by fax or phone. Make sure you sit down with your agent so that you understand the terms and what the offer really says.

Bottom Dollar
Determine what your bottom dollar is and never share it with any one. Compare each offer to that amount and realize that your bottom price may change as you become more familiar with the market.

Don’t take any offer personally
Your house is just one house that is on the market. Buyers scour the market for great deals and sometimes present intentionally low offers. Do not take any offer as a personal insult.

Don’t hesitate to counter-offer
Even when you get a low offer or one that you are unwilling to accept, don’t hesitate to counter. Sometimes buyers will respond positively to a counter because they are encouraged you are willing to negotiate.

STEP 6 – Closing

There’s a lot to do between the time you accept an offer and the time the house is actually sold. The buyer will do inspections, you may have to meet some conditions delineated in the offer, and the title to your home must be proven to be free and clear (free from judgments, liens, other claims, etc.).

It is your responsibility to maintain your home in the same condition it was in when the buyers made their offer. If window treatments were included, don’t pack up the curtain rods. If you included the refrigerator in the sale and it breaks, you’re still responsible for it. Many real estate complaints and lawsuits result from sellers delivering a home decidedly different from the one the buyers believed they were getting.

Once all has been done, you’re ready for closing. This is the meeting where the buyer signs final documents for transfer of title. Usually the buyer will take possession of the home the day after closing, when their mortgage loan has funded and been recorded in the local government.

Congratulations! You’ve sold your home.

Why Use A Realtor When Selling? 

By Scott Steadman / May 1, 2015 / 0 Comments

Selling your home can be a difficult task. With competition from neighbors and new construction, how can you get your home sold in a reasonable time for a fair price? Why pay a realtor?  The benefits to using a realtor when selling your home are many. They can help you determine the best time to sell, advise you on how to prepare your home to enter the market, determine the best price, market your home to the widest and best audience, and guide you through the selling process. Their experience can make your selling experience nearly carefree. 

Determining the Best Time to Sell

While employee transfers or other situations may not have the freedom to decide when to sell, the decision about when to sell is important. Do you have a deadline to sell? Can you wait a bit longer for a specific buyer? Do you have children in school? In all cases, but especially in SunCrest, the season and weather can have an effect on the market to sell your home.  

Listing at the wrong time can adversely affect your bottom line. With three decades of experience and residents of SunCrest, Robyn and Scott can help marry your home-selling needs with the condition of the market to get you in the market at the right time and get top dollar for your home.  

Preparing Your Home

Many sellers unwittingly spin their wheels trying to get their home ready for the market. On a limited budget, which will make the most difference: painting the walls or re-carpeting? Landscaping or finishing a bedroom?  

In addition to upgrades and fixes, how should you present your home to be sold? Did you know that removing appliances from the kitchen counter makes your kitchen look bigger to buyers?  

Why stab in the dark at what you think might make a difference, when an experienced Realtor can help you prioritize projects that amplify your bottom line?  

Determining a Price

The price of your home is a huge factor in determining how to sell your home. While it may be tempting to set a high price in hopes of luring still-generous offers, research shows this can actually drive away potential buyers, steer them towards your competition, delay the time it takes to sell your home, and result in a lower than fair final purchase price.  

A Realtor has powerful tools at their disposal to determine “fair market value.” Once this value is determined, you and your Realtor can decide where to set the price of your home– 5-10% above, 5-10% below, or right at the value–depending on your situation.  

Marketing Your Home

There’s much more to marketing than a “For Sale” sign in the yard. Open houses, magazine listings, flyers, websites; there are many methods to choose from.  When Robyn and Scott sell your home, they prepare a custom “25 Point Marketing Plan.” This plan goes through 25 exhaustive points to find the right tactics that will attract the right buyers at the right time, to get you a great price for your home. It’s a system they’ve developed over nearly 30 years in the industry and has proven results: in SunCrest it’s sold hundreds of homes since the community was built.  

The Selling Process

Offers. Counter-offers. Contingency offers. Seller concessions. On your own the selling process can be overwhelming. Having an experienced realtor to filter out offers and advise on the best offers will ultimately help you get the best price for your home.  Price, however, is only one facet of an offer. What about timeframe? Concessions? Who pays closing costs. Many times there is a better way to structure an offer that benefits you without affecting the buyer. Having a Realtor means knowing what options are available to you and having a smooth, easy transaction.  

Experience

It boils down to this: Realtors have done this time and time again. Experience is invaluable, and with three decades under our belt, Robyn and Scott have sold hundreds of homes.  Buyers will almost certainly have an experienced Realtor in their corner. It pays to level the playing field and put one in yours.
