PARK CITY, Utah, Jun 05, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the real estate brokerage network operated by HSF Affiliates LLC, today announced that Prudential Utah Real Estate has joined the network and is operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties.

The brokerage is the first in Utah to affiliate with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, a brand that now counts more than 29,000 agents and 800 offices in 39 states since its launch in September 2013.

Stephen Roney, Utah Properties Chairman and CEO, said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices will help his company grow. “I could not think of a better branding opportunity for our brokerage and agents,” he explained. “The brand is inspired by Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the world’s most trusted and respected corporations, and it’s built on a strong financial foundation.

The Top 10 Mountain Bike Destinations in North America

by Greg Heil

If there’s one thing that makes mountain biking such a special sport, it’s the opportunity to experience the complete breadth of ecosystems and landscapes the world over from such an intimate perspective. If you’re anything like me, traveling to different destinations ignites your passion for life and makes you feel like a giddy kid on Christmas morning!

Choosing the top 10 mountain bike destinations in North America was no easy feat. To start with, we decided that this was to be a list of true destinations: not residential areas with good mountain bike trail access, but rather destinations that you could plan your entire year’s worth of vacation time around. While one could argue that the people who actually live in these places are truly doing it right, we realize that not everybody can make that happen, so stay tuned for our top 10 list of mountain bike towns, coming soon.

When we sat down to make these careful choices, we called on the expertise of the entire Singletracks blog team. Narrowing the list down to just 10 places was a very difficult, controversial process. There was quite a bit of disagreement, even internally, about which towns should make the list, and which ones weren’t deserving. Regardless, each of the 10 locales listed below is more than worthy of dedicating a week (or a month) of your vacation time to exploring on the back of your mountain bike.

Whistler, British Columbia


Whistler is the true mecca of all things mountain biking. While Whistler is perhaps best-known for its world-class downhill mountain bike park, the surrounding area is covered in excellent cross country and all mountain singletrack trails, such as Comfortably Numb, that aren’t served by the lifts.

We admit: British Columbia itself could arguably envelope this entire top 10 destinations list with such fantastic locales as Squamish, Fernie, Nelson, Golden, Kelowna, Kamloops, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Revelstoke, and many more. Consider Whistler our nod towards everything BC.-mtbgreg1

Moab, Utah


With a mix of old classics and new purpose-built trails spanning a wide range of environments from high-alpine singletrack to desert rock and sand, Moab is no slouch in the trail department. And, with the completion of The Whole Enchilada route, you can experience all of those environments in one epic ride. However, as many municipalities have learned, trails alone do not a destination make. So what makes Moab the mecca that it is?

In addition to all the great riding, Moab is also home to two national parks, a signature state park, and more open BLM land than you could ever explore in a lifetime. Wrap all this up with plentiful lodging, affordable eats, several microbreweries, excellent bike shops, and plenty of camping options, and you’ve got yourself a bona fide mountain biking destination! -maddslacker

Park City, Utah



From fast, swooping in-town singletrack to alpine riding spanning three vast ski resorts, Park City, IMBA’s only gold-level ride center, has something for every mountain biker. Downhill rides abound both on and off the resorts, but those looking for steep climbs will find plenty of aerobic rides, too. Epic length tours like Mid-Mountain and the Wasatch Crest are easily accessible and, if you need one, so are guides. Inexpensive condo rentals and great benefits like free concerts and local beer make Park City an excellent choice for your next mountain bike vacation. Who wouldn’t want a chance to explore over 400 miles of singletrack?! -mtbikerchick

Real Estate Market Update


A recent survey of over 50,000 real estate professionals reports a consensus view that home prices will continue to increase moderately this year, at a median rate of 3.9%. Tight credit conditions and conservative family budgeting may limit price increases, but the real estate market will continue to grow in strength.  As evidence of this, properties are currently selling more rapidly -- the median of days on market has dropped to 62.



According to the report, “Access to credit” was often cited as a deterrent to home buying. About 13 percent of REALTORS® who did not close a sale in February reported having clients who could not obtain financing. Other professionals found that the combination of rising prices; higher interest rates; and added fees such as FHA’s up front and continuing mortgage insurance premiums has eroded affordability. Modest job and income growth and difficult underwriting standards have also held off prospective buyers.


Fortunately, Utah’s economy is projected to grow steadily and more rapidly than the national average. The state’s real estate market will most likely experience a 3 to 5% increase in home prices due to a stabilizing economy, statewide business growth, and historically low inventory. 




Prudential Utah Real Estate lists and sells more exceptional Park City properties than any other brokerage in the area. We know how to price, market and negotiate extraordinary homes. Please contact your Prudential Realtor® to sell or find your Park City home.

Market Area Spotlight


Upper Deer Valley   


Upper Deer Valley’s market remains robust. While home prices continue to increase, condominiums are selling for less than last year, making them good investment options. Since January, Upper Deer Valley homes have had an average selling price of $6,400,000, up from $3,200,000 at the same time last year. In contrast, sold condominiums had an average selling price of $1,200,000, which is down from $1,700,000 last year.  



Stein Eriksen Residences Update


Stein Eriksen Residences have seen a tremendous amount of activity since their initial winter release and are offering new additional product. Due to the success of the previous reservation phase, developers have decided to release the final building. The current 37 reservations are expected to convert to purchase contracts in June, and the project will be constructed en masse with no phasing starting this summer. Completion for the condominium buildings is estimated at twenty months. Contact your local Prudential agent for more information.
