Sundancing Like the Locals – Park City

Sundancing Like the Locals – Park City

If you’ve been keeping up with the Park City events calendar, you know that one of the biggest and brightest events of the year is just around the corner: the Sundance Film Festival. Starting January 23rd and running until February 2nd, Sundance is a celebration of cinematography, and also happens to be the largest independent film festival in the United States.

Sundance describes itself in this way:

“Our 10-day Festival welcomes more than 124,000 attendees and spreads out across three locations: Park CitySalt Lake City, and the Sundance Mountain Resort near Provo.”

Whether you’re a veteran attendee, or you’re looking forward to your first time at a Sundance screening, we’ve put together this helpful guide to make sure you can make it to the films you want to see in the most convenient, comfortable way.


One of the most important things to remember is that each city in the Sundance event schedule is separated by a 30- to 75-minute drive, so you will want to make sure you select screening tickets in the city where you plan on spending most of your time.

Tickets went on sale January 16th, for locals. Tickets will be available until they’re completely sold out. The non-local public can purchase tickets starting today, January 21st, so if you’re planning on attending from out of state, you’ll want to make sure to be online right at 10am (MST) to ensure you can grab your seats.

The Park City theaters that will be hosting premiers and showings are as follows:

Eccles Theatre
Egyptian Theatre
Prospector Square Theatre
The MARC Theatre
The Ray Theatre

Making Your Experience Amazing:

Pro-tip #1: Don’t drive. While Park City is charming, beautiful, elegant, and a natural wonderland, it’s not known exactly for its parking availability. (Ironic for a place called “Park” City, right?) In reality, parking during Sundance is a nightmare. We suggest you come via carpool, Uber or take advantage of the free PC Public transportation.

Pro-tip #2: Dress for the occasion. Park City is a very walkable town, and since we’ve already discussed the need for ride sharing, you’ll need to bring proper footwear (i.e. insulated and waterproof snow boots). Sorels are the preferred brand of Park City, and they even have a whole line dedicated to the city! That’s just one option, if you’re in need of something with great traction but that is still very cute.

Pro-tip #3: Have a plan. If you already have tickets, YAY YOU!! We talked about ticket sales above, but you’ll want to keep in mind the distances between cities if you’re looking to catch a certain film in a certain place. And, if you’re trying to up your chances of catching sight of one of your Hollywood favorites, we loved this article that tells you exactly who is in which film.

For any of your other event related questions, be sure to check out the Sundance website, and be sure to check out the festival map that includes more details on each venue, theatre, and even shuttle routes.

We hope you have a fantastic time at Sundance! If you’ve got any down time between events, make sure to visit us at our Silver Star office (hello, free silver mine tour?)

Welcome, Woodward Park City!

If you’ve been anticipating this year’s ski season, and are up-to-date on the happenings in Park City, you’re probably aware of the newest action-sports resort that opened just a week ago. But if you’re not au courant, fear not. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Woodward: a world-class, year-round action sports resort that’s changing the game of all-season recreation.

Woodward may be a tenderfoot on the Utah resort scene, but its offerings are nothing short of thrilling. The grand opening took place on December 14th, and world-famous athletes such as skateboarder Tony Hawk and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson were in attendance for the celebration! Woodward has both internal and external facilities, visitors and guests have their choice of drop-in sessions, all-access passes, day sessions, lift tickets, lessons, summer day camps, monthly memberships and special events. As stated on the Woodward website, “there is always a way to play for kids, and kids at heart.”

In a press release regarding the start of ski season, Park City Magazine gave us this tantalizing description of everything to look forward to:

On tap for the new 125-acre Woodward Park City, woodwardparcity.com: tubing, skiing, snowboarding, BMX, cheer, trampolines, ramps, parkour, digital media, and more. The campus’s model is a progressive one, which caters to all levels of athletes. For example, terrain park newbies can get a taste of the action on the Start Park and eventually work their way up to a 22-foot halfpipe. And for those who lament Gorgoza’s passing, there will be 10 (or more) tubing lanes. A 66,000-square-foot indoor facility with all the full-throttle accoutrements of action sports (think trampolines, foam pits, spring floor, skateboard/BMX-like concrete park features …) accompanies the extensive, outdoor amenities. Daily lift tickets to Woodward will cost $50; and a month-long, all-access membership is $100.

Introducing the Q3 Gardner Report: Trends of the Utah Real Estate Market

Q3 Gardner Report: Utah Real Estate Market Trends

The following analysis of select counties of the Utah real estate market is provided by Windermere Real Estate Chief Economist Matthew Gardner. We hope that this information may assist you with making better-informed real estate decisions. For further information about the housing market in your area, please don’t hesitate to contact your Windermere Agent.

Economic Overview

Utah’s non-agricultural employment rose by 42,100 jobs over the past 12 months, representing a solid growth rate of 2.8%. For perspective, the U.S growth rate is 1.4%. Year to date, Utah has added an average of 3,350 jobs per month, which is down from 4,200 per month last year. I expect we will continue to see modest slowing in employment gains as we move forward given the maturity of the economic cycle. Although the trend is slowing, I anticipate the state will see job growth around 2.8% in  2019. My early forecast for 2020 suggests that Utah will see employment growth of 2.6%.

In August, the state unemployment rate was 2.8%, below the 3.1% level of a year ago.


Home Sales

  • In the third quarter of 2019, 10,562 homes sold, representing a solid increase of 8.2% compared to the same period in 2018 and 4.3% higher than in the second quarter of this year.
  • Total sales activity rose in all but the very small Morgan County. Year-over-year, sales rose by double digits in three counties, with impressive increases in Summit and Utah counties.
  • The number of homes for sale in the third quarter was only 2.6% higher than in the same period a year ago but was 11% higher than the second quarter of this year. There continues to be significantly more choice in the market, which is good news for home buyers.
  • Pending sales in the third quarter were up 13% compared to a year ago, but were 7% lower than in the second quarter, suggesting that closings in the final quarter of this year may drop from current levels.



Home Prices

  • The average home price in the region continued to rise in the third quarter, with a year-over-year increase of 9% to an average of $401,638. Sale prices were 2.5% higher than in the second quarter of this year.
  • All but Wasatch County saw price increases compared to the same period a year ago. The contraction of price in Summit County was significant, but, because it is a small and very expensive area, I am not overly concerned this represents a pervasive trend.
  • Appreciation was again strongest in Weber County, where sale prices were up by 13.7% to $298,333. As the most affordable market in the area, this is not surprising.
  • The takeaway here is that home prices continue to appreciate at significant rates. I still expect to see some moderation in price growth as we move through the year and into 2020, but Utah will clearly continue to outperform the nation as a whole.



Days on Market

  • The average number of days it took to sell a home in the counties covered by this report rose eight days compared to the third quarter of 2018.
  • Homes sold fastest in Davis, Salt Lake, and Weber counties, and slowest in the expensive Summit County. All counties saw days-on-market rise compared to the third quarter of 2018.
  • During the third quarter of this year, it took an average of 45 days to sell a home in the region, down from 53 days in the second quarter.
  • The Utah economy is still outperforming almost all other states and this will continue to drive housing demand.




This speedometer reflects the state of the region’s real estate market using housing inventory, price gains, home sales, interest rates, and larger economic factors.

For the third quarter of 2019, I have moved the needle a little more in favor of sellers. Although the area has seen a modest increase in the number of homes for sale and days-on-market, prices, pending sales, and closed sales are higher, which certainly favors sellers.

Prepare Your Home for Winter

As the days shorten, you can mitigate many mid-winter headaches with some preemptive prep. Proper weatherizing can help protect your home from preventable damage, save money on energy costs, and, most importantly, keep you and your loved ones safe and warm throughout the winter season. Here is a useful checklist to manage your weatherization project. Setting aside some time on a couple of weekend days should be more than enough to knock this out:


Cracks & Leaks

Examine your entire house for any cracks and leaks, from your roof to your baseboards, to your basement and foundation. With unpredictable winter weather, these cracks and leaks are how the outside gets in, causing cold drafts and water damage.

Luckily, most cracks don’t require a professional to handle it. Depending on your house type and age, it’s likely you’ll be able to do it yourself with supplies from your local hardware store.


Windows & Doors:

Gaps and breaks in windows and doors is another way to let the winter in your home, and they can let heat escape, raising your heat bill throughout the season.

Make sure seals are tight and no leaks exist. If you have storm windows, make sure you put them on before the cold season begins. Additionally, add weather-strips and or a door sweep to prevent drafts and keep the heat in.


Rain Gutters: 

Clean your rain gutters of any debris. In colder climates, the buildup will cause gutters to freeze with ice, crack and then leak.

Once you have removed the residue from the drains, test them by running hose water to make sure cracks and leaks have not already formed. Even in warmer locales, the buildup can put undue stress on your roof and home.



Protecting your pipes from freezing should be your number one priority this winter. A burst pipe can quickly become a disaster in any home.

Remember to turn off your exterior water source and take in your hose. Internally, wrapping your pipes is a recommended precaution to take.


Heating System:

Annual checks are vital in avoiding dangers such as house fires. Replace filters if you use a furnace and clear out any vents and ducts that carry heat through them. If you have baseboard heat, wipe them of dust and remove any debris that might catch fire.


Fireplace & Wood Burning Stoves:

Make sure to have chimneys and air vents cleaned early in the season if you are planning on warming your home with a wood-burning source. When your fireplace is not in use make sure to close the damper, some resources estimate an open damper can increase energy consumption by as much as 30%, increasing your bill about $200.


Sprinkler Irrigation System:

As temperatures start to drop, it’s time to shut down your lawn irrigation systems and prepare for winter’s bitter cold. Sprinkler pipes and other components are at risk of freezing and breaking when temperatures drop below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.



Bring your patio furniture inside or cover it for the winter. Don’t forget other, smaller items such as your tools, including the hose and planting pots. Clear out any piles around the side of your house, checking for cracks and holes in your home and foundation as you go so to avoid providing shelter for unwelcome guests over the cold season.

If your property has large trees check for loose branches and call someone to trim back any limbs that may fall in your yard, on your roof or even damage a window.


Emergency Kit: 

Lastly, make sure your emergency kit is up to date with provisions, batteries, fresh water, food for animals, entertainment for kids – especially if you live in an area prone to power outages.

2017 Real Estate Market Forecast

Screen Shot 2016-12-14 at 2.38.16 PM

The big holidays are right around the corner. Along with the eggnog, holiday shopping, and countdown to the new year, comes the predictions of the housing market for 2017. Luckily for you, Windermere’s Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner, has been giving his annual forecast to a variety of real estate and financial organizations. It’s always difficult to predict the future, but based on what we do know today, here are some thoughts on the current market and what you can expect in the new year.

Housing Affordability: This continues to remain a big concern for many west coast cities, as some markets have seen home prices escalating above income growth. We all know that this is unsustainable over the long term, so, luckily, it is believed the rate of growth will begin to slow and price appreciation will soften.

Housing Supply: In 2016, home prices and sales rose while listings remained the same. Hopefully, in 2017, there will be an increase in the number of homes for sale, hopefully, relieving pressure.

First-Time Home Buyers: First time home buyers should be abundant come 2017, and it’s a good thing. First-time home buyers are mandatory to achieving a more balanced housing market. While rising home prices and competition will act as an obstacle to some first timers, the increase in housing inventory should help alleviate some of the challenges.

Interest Rates: Although interest rates remain remarkably low, they have begun to increase since the election, and they will continue to increase through 2017.  Matthew Gardner believes the 30-year fixed rate to increase to about 4.5 percent by year’s end. Yes, this is well above where interest rates are currently, but it’s still very low.

Alas, it is continually heard that there are concerns about an impending housing bubble. While price growth should grow in certain areas, the floor should not fall on housing prices. There should be a slight shift towards a more balanced market in the year ahead. So, all in all, 2017 shall provide yet another good real estate market.

Fall is the Best Season to Buy a Home


Spring and summer usually get the most attention for home buyers and sellers. It’s no wonder why. It’s hot, the kids are out for summer, and what better way to spend your Sunday than walking around to open houses? So, it might come as a surprise to you that fall may actually be the best season to buy a home. Let me tell you why.

  1. Not as much competition.  Like I just stated, people love to buy homes in the spring and summer because the temperature is great! What that means for you? Fall will bring you less competition, AKA less bidding wars for you to lose your favorite home to. So, stay strong my friends. There may not be as many homes, but patience and perseverance will pay off.
  2. Seller’s are easier to negotiate with. Imagine you’re a seller trying to get someone to buy your home before the colder months hit. If you’ve had your home on the market all summer, then chances are you are going to be pretty desperate come fall. Now, imagine you’re a buyer. You see a home that’s been on the market for three months, you will most likely give an offer lower than asking price and chances are you’ll come to an agreement in your favor.
  3. Fall comes with lower home prices. According to RealtyTrac’s analysis of more than 32 million home sales over 15 years, October is the best month to buy a home. Their data showed that during this month, buyer’s paid 2.6 percent below the estimated value of the home. Talk about a switch from spring and summer where sellers are getting asking price or more.
  4. The holidays are creeping up. Use this pre-holiday window to give fast closings and make your offer look appealing to the seller. How can someone think of presents when they have a home to sell?
  5. Those things called taxes. Most people won’t accept an offer just for this reason, but selling a home during the end of a fiscal year does have some added benefits. A seller you may be able to take some nice tax deductions, including closing costs, property tax, and mortgage interest, to offset their taxable earnings.
  6. Black Friday. If you buy a new home in the fall, you will be spoiled with the deals of Black Friday and other holiday sales. Think brand spankin’ new refrigerator for a great price.

Well, folks, if that doesn’t convince you that fall is the best season to buy, then I am not sure what does. Contact me so we can start viewing homes! Get a head start by browsing our active listings here.

Hello World of Real Estate

Hello World!

Maybe it all started when I was a kid and would watch my mom rearrange our house for the 20th time to make the interior design just perfect. Or, perhaps it started when my aunt and uncle jumped into the world of real estate and their lives lit up. Either way, I knew for a long time that real estate was an adventure I wanted to tackle. 

And here I am — a Realtor for Windermere. It might be coincidence that my aunt is also an agent for Windermere in California, or it may just be that we are attracted to great companies. That said, I made it, and I am excited to partake on this journey with you. Whether it be finding your dream home, selling your home to move into your dream home, or finding that investment property to make your wallet proud, I am officially your girl. You can look to me for any of your real estate needs and I promise I will deliver. 

I get it. You don't want to hire a girl you don't know, so let me tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in California, moved to Boulder, CO for college, traveled Central and South America and Southeast Asia for two years, met my husband in Peru, then moved to Utah to start my career and get married. How was that for one sentence? All in all, I love to travel (especially around Utah), drink coffee, take photos, meet strangers, talk to friends and family and work hard. But, what I really love most is making you happy. I will work my hardest to make sure you are happy and get what you want. So, let's meet — get coffee (or tea) — and talk about your needs. I can't wait.
