I’m asked almost daily, where are the short sales around Salt Lake City? Folks have heard that buying a distressed property is a great way to get the best deal in a SLC home.
Buying a short sale or a pre-foreclosed home is not for the faint of heart. Working with home sellers that are about to lose what was once their biggest asset, and the family anchor is no picnic. Trying to get a lender to accept less than what they are owed is adversarial to begin with, and when you need to deal with 2 banks, as is often the case, each day starts with problems.
But those problems are for another post.
Lets deal with where we can find short sales if we have the stamina to get a great deal on a Salt Lake City pre-foreclosure.
With all the talk of the sub prime mortgage problems, bailouts and a declining Real Estate market in general, I thought it might be helpful to see just where those homes were located and which areas of the Salt Lake Valley were more likely to turn up the best “deal” for a home buyer, or Real Estate Investor.
Here is a current list of the number of pre foreclosed homes (short sales) in Salt Lake City, by city, listed on the MLS

So…… based on these numbers supplied by the Wasatch Front Regional Listing Service, (MLS), the answer to where are the short sales in Salt Lake City is West Jordan, Riverton and West Valley City. At least those have the highest percentage of short sales among the listing inventory.
