Congratulations Tooele County Home owners !!!

I'm going to congratulate all of the Tooele County home-owners, mostly the home owners in Tooele City, Stansbury Park, Grantsville Ut, and Erda Ut.  I'm not exactly sure about the "what for". Actually I'm ALSO going to congratulate all of the Real Estate professionals in the Tooele Valley. Once again I'm not exactly sure why.

I guess its for being smart, honest, thrifty, responsible, ungullible, (is that really a word?) and any other word that is the opposite of the way home buyers have been characterized by the media for "getting themselves in this sub-prime mess". There were some people that didn't blame the folks. They blamed the Real Estate agents, the Bankers, the Lenders, the appraisers, the loan officers, Etc. Etc. Etc. They made up even worse names for them.

Some of it was justified.

But NOT in Tooele County.

Check this out.... There are  442 properties listed on the MLS. Some of them are land, or lots or commercial parcels, but the majority are single family homes, or town-houses, or condominiums. Almost all off them are located in Tooele City, Stansbury Park, Grantsville, or Erda. Only 10 of these, 9 houses and 1 Condo are part of a bank foreclosure, third party workout program, or short sale. I think everyone should be commended.

Let me put this in perspective, so you can see what we have to brag about.

Right over the mountain, if you take Butterfield Canyon, is Herriman. They have 397 properties for sale. Forty one of those homes are either bank owned , short sales, foreclosures or require third party approval.  In Tooele we have 10% more homes for sale, they have almost 5 times more distressed properties. Herriman reflects the sub-prime problems weve all been reading about much more than Tooele.

Lets high five the homeowners and Real Estate professionals in Tooele Valley that set a standard not found in other areas along the Wasatch Front

Thanks for being here, and thanks for being part of a responsible, smart, honest, thrifty, ungullible (there's that word again) community.
