With the changing real estate market and declining home prices in Utah, there are lots of foreclosure and short sale homes. These properties can represent substantial deals.

With home prices expected to decline throughout most of Utah during 2011, the number of foreclosure homes will likely remain high for a few more years.
A short sale is a home that is being sold prior to a foreclosure, which is why it falls under the category of “distressed” housing. Short sales are hot items among those who are looking for deals on real estate, especially investors, because the potential to buy low and sell high is very likely.
Purchasing a short sale is not for everybody. There is an approval process which takes some time, and you may not be guaranteed the short sale, as most of them have many offers on them. If you have time on your side and little to lose, browsing short sales is an excellent idea.
