Ever hear about the HGTV Dream home? You probably have. Well, the most recent HGTV 2012 Dream Home built was recently given away to a woman from the East Coast. She decided to take the cash, rather than relocate her family to Utah to live in the home. So this amazing home is now up for sale. This HGTV Dream Home is absolutely stunning, and is in a beautiful setting, along the river in the small, rural town of Midway, just 15 minutes from Park City and Deer Valley.

You'll hear this phrase often; "We came for the winters, but stayed for the Summers!" That is true for just about every resident of Park City. Summer here is truly amazing. If you have not spent much time here in Summer yet, you have got to give it a try, especially if you live somewhere hot, this is a great escape from the heat.

We are so excited to be back into Summer. Most of the snow has melted away, aside from a few random patches still remaining. The mountains are getting very green, the trails are in great condition, and the temperature is in its ideal range of upper 60's and 70's. The above photo of our dog, Brinkley, was taken only a couple

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.

Park City's winter season is now over, with all three Park City ski resorts now closed. Even though we had much less snow this year, especially compared to the ultra amazing year we had last year, it was still a lot of fun.  Instead of snow, we did get a lot of sunny days on the mountain. 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

Where can you ski or snowboard in the morning, and then go on a great mountain bike ride in the afternoon?  Park City of course!

Its that time of year again where we get a little sad to see the winter season dwindling down, but also quite excited to see some of our great singletrack trails drying out and becoming ready to ride. A couple days ago I had a fun time taking a few cruisers on the groomers at PCMR, and a few laps in the Superpipe - still love riding that scary thing. 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.

We just received nearly 3 feet of snow in the last 2 days! It started out as rain which was quite upsetting for mid-March! I was at Silver Star at Park City the other day watching two families checking in for the week, and such long faces of sadness they had! I did tell them not to worry, that the rain would soon turn to snow and it would get really good, I was hoping I was correct.

I was. The rain we saw on saturday quickly turned to snow, and did not stop. Yesterday might have been good as well, but we waited until today to go up. It was amazing, probably the best day of the year. We have had a few other really great pow days, but this was quite good. Heather and I got up there right away at 9am, and did runs until about noon. We took a few on
