The economy in Utah is still strong

I have been hearing nothing but negative news for the last year. I don't know about anyone else out there, but I am not about to admit that the sky is falling. In fact, Utah is one of the few states that is still doing quite well. Listings are selling (thanks to some fantastic stagers and Realtors out there) people are still buying, job growth is on the rise and all in all, we are doing pretty good!
I was watching Diane Sawyer on ABC and she was pointing out on a map what states were considered in a recession, what states were on the verge of recession, and what states were still strong. Utah was one of the strong states. She actually said that people should consider moving to those specified states if things are looking bleak where they are. This was on ABC NEWS! Utah has one of the highest forecast for job growth in the nation! People are going to be moving here, getting a fresh start and we as Realtors, Stagers, and citizens of Utah should be ready for them. So, keep a positive attitude and get ready to be busy.

This is sooo true! I'm so glad you posted this. It drives me crazy when people listen to national news and think they are talking about our local market. Utah really is the place to be and where real estate continues to go up!
