Why the Housing Boom is Nowhere Close To Being Over 

by James Miller, MBA

The housing market is totally out of balance… but not in the way you might expect. Considering that we’re in the middle of a global pandemic and an economic recession, you’d think any market imbalance would be a bad thing. But that’s not the case in housing.  We’ve seen the U.S. housing market boom for the last decade. And what’s happening today tells me the boom can continue from here.

You see, the market can only fix this problem one way… supply and demand must tip back into balance. When supply is thin and there aren’t enough homes for buyers on the market, prices rise. When supply floods the market, prices will fall as buyers have more options.

Today, existing home…

The New Salt Lake City International Airport Is Built For Skiers & Snowboarders 

A phased overhaul to the Salt Lake City International Airport incorporates a massive amount of upgrades for travelers, but more importantly for skiers and Snowboarders, an improved baggage system that optimizes handling of oversized baggage.

HIKE AND DINE

Armstrong Trail is a moderate trail just over 3 miles with beautiful wildflowers. But the real motivation for this hike is the promise of après hiking at Silver Star Café on the patio when you’re done!

 

GOOD WATER HIKES

It’s a beautiful drive and walk around Mirror Lake in the Uintas. Blood Lake is a nice hike close to town and Wall Lake is about an hour away and offers a great entry level hike. For a dramatic water destination, visit Stewart Falls in Sundance, for a moderate hike to a picturesque waterfall.

 

A GOOD SHADY HIKE

This is a local fave, probably because Rob’s Trail is shady! Hike up and overlook Canyons on this not-too-hot and enjoyable trail.  

 

A GOOD BURN HIKE

It’s officially patio season and it couldn’t come at a better time! As restaurants are starting to reopen, outdoor dining is definitely even more appealing than ever. I’ve gathered my favorite Park City (and beyond) patios for the perfect place to soak up some sun, sip some cocktails, and enjoy some fresh mountain air!

MOUNTAIN TERRACE AT THE ST. REGIS DEER VALLEY

Enjoy some fresh mountain air and amazing views at The St. Regis. After you ride the funicular (it’s FUN) up the side of the mountain, sit on the Mountain Terrace to enjoy fine cuisine and signature cocktails. Try the famous 7452 Mary (that’s the elevation!) and stay for the nightly champagne sabering ritual by the fire garden at sunset!
