According to Brad Bjelke, CEO of UtahRealEstate.com , low inventory levels are still a challenge for home buyers. That said, pending home sales across Utah (under contracts) increased to a five-year high in March. Jake Breen, former director of the Salt Lake Board of Realtors®, reminds us that challenges are ahead, as showings dropped nearly 50 percent nationwide in the last two weeks of March. “What has been affected in real time at the moment is the luxury market, especially over $1 million,” Breen says. “Affordable housing in Salt Lake is still a hot market.”
