What Buyers Are Willing to Buy

In Salt Lake City’s dynamic real estate market, prospective buyers are rethinking traditional approaches in response to economic shifts. According to a recent RE/MAX survey, 80% of those eyeing a home purchase in the next year are reassessing their strategies.

From contemplating fixer-uppers to exploring tiny homes, buyers are embracing innovative avenues to homeownership. Fixer-uppers, favored by over half of respondents, offer potential cost savings and the chance to customize their space. Similarly, tiny homes and prefabricated houses are gaining traction, prized for affordability and low maintenance.

Flexibility is key, with many considering financing options requiring less than a 20% down payment. Multi-family living appeals to some for investment opportunities or shared expenses, while condos and townhomes offer affordability and convenience.

Pooling resources with family or friends is another strategy gaining popularity, enabling buyers to expand their purchasing power. Even all-cash purchases and super commuting are on the table for some, highlighting the lengths individuals are willing to go to secure their dream home.
