Utah Housing Market – First-Half of 2008 

July 5, 2008

The national market downturn is affecting Utah. Home prices for the first half of the year are showing an average price decrease of $7, 337 from last year’s average. Condo prices have slipped as well statewide. The average condo price is now $189,748 or $6,563 less than last year’s average. The average square foot price in Utah is down an average of $4.

Utah home buyers are getting more concessions from sellers. The current average sold price to listing price is ($6,801), which is ($2,014) more than the average for 2007. Home sellers are waiting an average of 20 days longer to sell their property so far this year. The average days on market until sold is currently 68 days.

Conclusion: Current Utah market conditions favor buyers. Buyers can expect property owners to be more willing negotiate price and terms. The longer selling time for home owners will make sellers more anxious to meet buyer expectations. You can find the entire study with figures for key counties at the following link:
