Realtor.com recently ranked Salt Lake City No. 6 in the nation for “The Best Cities to Buy a Home Right Now.” Forbes reported on the study and stated there were a number of factors that played a part in determining how each city was evaluated and ranked.

Salt Lake received high marks for improved inventory levels, list prices and employment. Inventory is down 31 percent compared to last year, and the median list price is up 5.5 percent from last year at $195,000. The unemployment rate for Salt Lake is currently 5.9 percent. Unemployment rates, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, were factored into the rankings since jobs are a leading indicator of housing demand.

And although we had less snow, we still had a couple really great days, so we cannot complain too much!

If you still have the desire to get out on snow, Brighton, Alta, and Snowbird are still open. Brighton and Alta will be closing soon, while Snowbird will stay open for at least a few more weeks. Snowbird usually remains open for a couple weeks after most resorts close, and then they switch to a weekends only schedule for the remaining few weeks. They will stay open

Then went home and got a little work done (as a Realtor sometimes I can shuffle my schedule around as needed).  Then in the same day, in the afternoon, I took my bike back out, infkated the tires back up, and had a great first ride of the year out in Round Valley.
