SILICON SLOPES IS THE PLACE TO BE 

By Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties
Aug 03, 2016

Nature-103

Utah is world famous for having the Greatest Snow on Earth®, but recently, the Wasatch Front has become the home of a rapidly growing tech industry known as “Silicon Slopes”. Technology companies have descended upon the Beehive State spawning exponential growth along the Front. With Tech Giants like Adobe, Twitter and a host of innovative start-ups concentrated in South Salt lake County and North Utah County, residential neighborhoods in Riverton, Bluffdale, South Jordan, Draper and Lehi are bustling with new life.

What was once “small town” and farmland dotting the valley south of Salt Lake City is now the hottest area of growth in the state. The great thing is, several net positives promise to maintain the trajectory.

Location is important and although Utah may seem a bit “out-of-the-way”, it is actually drawing technology companies like no other place. The only state capitol with an international airport, Salt Lake City is a brief hour-and-a-half from the Bay Area and easily accessible to the rest of the world. The city is within minutes of unlimited outdoor activity and world class skiing. Renowned ballet, symphony, theatre and professional sports add to the vibrant community.

Low home prices, competitive salaries, and low operating costs are another draw for business and residents alike. Tech companies relocating from the Bay Area are able to offer their employees better benefits as well as invest more money back into business and product development resulting in better products and a more robust corporate footprint.

The entrepreneurial spirit and capable, willing workforce add to the stability of “Silicon Slopes”. Local universities provide outstanding programs in computer science, engineering and programming. They inspire and supply a healthy work ethic and energize future innovators and executives.

The “Silicon Slopes” area of the Wasatch Front is an exciting place to live and work and its contribution to the state’s economy has solidly secured Utah’s place on the map.

Innovation and entrepreneurship are absolutely necessary in the technology and medical industries to be globally competitive. Even traditional industries have found that they must be more innovative to remain successful. With rapid growth occuring on the Wasatch Front, it is vital that Utah be creative and innovative in creating jobs, relieving traffic congestion, and planning for the future. Thankfully, Utah has a long tradition of both innovation and entrepreneurship.

So, what are Utah's innovations and who are Utah’s famous entrepreneurs? Here are a few inspirational notables:

• Alan Ashton developed the world’s first word processing software.

• Alvino Ray invented the electric guitar

• Don Carlos Edwards created fry sauce.

• Frank Zamboni invented... well, the Zamboni.

Utah ranked No. 1 Best State for Business for 2015—the fifth year out of the last six

From the Governor's Office of Economic Development: 

When you think of the nation’s greatest sports dynasties, you might think of the Boston Celtics, New York Yankees or Green Bay Packers. Now think “economic dynasty”—and Utah should come to mind. Forbes magazine once again ranked Utah as the No. 1 Best State for Business for 2015. This marks five out of the last six years in the top spot.

“We’ve enjoyed years of success but have also learned a very important lesson: it’s much harder to stay on top than it is to get there,” said Governor Gary R. Herbert. “It’s always exciting to earn top accolades, but it’s even more meaningful that this is our fifth win from Forbes. It means that all of our work to maintain a winning business environment is working. It means we’re continuously building a champion state.”

Utah has been ranked No. 1 for economic outlook every year since 2008. Everyone from the Washington Post and Fortune magazine to The New Yorker has been talking about Utah, trying to discover the Beehive State’s secret to success. Collaboration is one of the state’s not-so-secret strengths.

“Sports dynasties don’t happen because of one star player or a single miracle play,” said Val Hale, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “They happen because of focused strategy, tireless effort and—perhaps most importantly—teamwork. The same goes for Utah’s economy. This is the result of continued partnership between Utah’s greatest in business, government, education and our communities. Team Utah has built an incredible economic dynasty.”

The Forbes ranking comes just days after the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s latest research titled “Enterprising States: States Innovate.” Utah took top marks in all six measured categories, including business climate and high-tech performance. The state won the No. 1 spot for innovation and entrepreneurship, garnering the label of “most fundamentally sound state” from the Chamber.

One point in the Chamber’s study is reminiscent of 2013—the one year in the past six—that Utah ranked a still noteworthy No. 3 rather than No. 1 with Forbes. One area for improvement in the “States Innovate” report is talent pipeline. Utah barely missed the top ten for the category taking the No. 11 spot.

Like any hall of fame team, Utah’s overall success lies in a proactive focus on the fundamentals: reduced regulation, spending within means and, when necessary, implementing “cross-training” and “conditioning” to perfect our economic play.

Just last month, an unprecedented collaboration between government, industry and education leaders produced the Utah Aerospace Pathways (UAP) program. The program is designed to place high school students on the fast-track for aerospace careers, landing them in high-paying jobs right after high school graduation. UAP serves as a pilot for similar education programs for other industries—such as the IT and software sector—along with incumbent worker training programs. Coupled with other endeavors such as the STEM Action Center’s grant programs and teacher trainings, all hands are on deck for tackling workforce development. The idea is to create sustainable economic development.

“Our job as part of Team Utah is to work with companies that are considering Utah for expansion, so we see the business site selection process regularly,” said Jeff Edwards, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “Receiving the Forbes Best State for Business ranking again in 2015, and for the fifth time in six years, confirms what we hear from companies every day: no one else does economic development like Utah. The model we have in this state, with industry support, local community participation and leadership from the Governor’s Office—it is uncommon and remarkable.”

Salt Lake City Spring Market Update

By Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties
Apr 21, 2016

slc

March 2016 active listings (inventory) was down 32% from March 2015; yet, pending sales are up 8% in Salt Lake City County. This trend of low inventory by high pendings has occurred consistently for the last year. Bottom line: demand for housing remains strong, and inventory remains constrained.

Utah county has slowed slightly as far as pendings and Davis County has the lowest number of listings. The county is down 45% in inventory when compared to the same time last year. Once again, Davis county has more pending deals than they do active inventory.

Weber County is showing the same signs of frantic buyer interest with inventory down 37% from March of last yet, but pending sales are up 9%.

Davis County is seeing the strongest appreciation if you look at the month of March 2016 over 2015, with a 10% increase in median sales price this year.

Median price closed out at $255,000 in SLC county, which is up from January by almost 7%!  Pricing is skyrocketing in the affordable price range; for Wasatch front, anything under $500K is seeing rapid appreciation. Median price in SLC may reach over $260K for all unit types and could surpass $300K for single family homes. That's a ceiling we've never even gotten close to in Salt Lake City.

Remember it's a seasonal market and this is common.  If we remove the seasonality and just compare March 2015 to Feb 2016 median price is up 7%. This conveys that the market ceiling is really being challenged.  On one hand, there is nothing to buy because inventory is low; but, at the same time buyers are experiencing price shock since the market got back to all time new highs in 2015.

Our take: The market will remain hot with more inventory coming to market over the next 90 days and likely will still see strong appreciation until inventory gets back to normal market levels.
