Incandescent vs Flourescent vs LED

Good morning everyone, I'm at a good friend's home and they have over 150 LED lights so I wanted to share a little information about lighting.

As you can see these are LED lights and one of the things that people used to worry about is that they are so directional that they wouldn't provide the flood of light like fluorescents do.

Incandescent lights last about a thousand hours per lightbulb. Fluorescent lighting, which has a little mercury in it, increases about ten times and last about 10,000 hours per light bulb and use 70% less energy.

LED lights, which have been very expensive until the last couple years, range from 20-50,000 hours per bulb and reduce energy consumption another 30-50% from fluorescents.

So think of this when you are looking to build a home, buy a home, or even just change out your lights!

This is a beautiful home here and you can see how good these LED lights look!

Take care!

Take care,

Mapleton Utah Over 70 Homes Currently For Sale

Hey everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend! Just want to take a minute and share a few thoughts.

I'm in Mapleton again, I've talked about Mapleton before, I love Mapleton it is such a beautiful, beautiful town. I have friends here and clients but it's not just because of them, it is a beautiful town. You could look over here and see the lake I mean it is just beautiful, I love it.

Anyway it's a great place if you're looking for real estate. I know people keep talking about low
inventories right now, in Mapleton there are 74 homes that are listed for sale and some of these are to be built homes but the majority are existing homes.

Mapleton in my mind was always if you were in Mapleton you probably had a larger parcel, that's just what I always thought. Elkridge, Mapleton, kind of this this area, you had a larger parcel.

Out of those 74 homes over half, I think it's 40 some are less than half an acre and so
Mapleton has changed at least my paradigm. You don't have as many, I think it's like 30 homes, no it was 25 homes are an acre or more so it's changing a bit here in Mapleton.

I just wanted to share this view because I love it, it's at the south end of Main Street you've got a great view of the lake.

If you're interested in Mapleton give me a call. There are quite a few places for sale, it's a great location. The other thing is that the perception has been that Mapleton is a long ways away it's out back in the corner and you can't get to anything, but you're pretty close to Spanish Fork, to Springville and so it's closer than what you think.

Whether you're in Mapleton and you want a price and you want to know the market price of your home or you want to come to Mapleton, give me a call. I have some other cohorts from my office who I work with and we'll give you some information on Mapleton and help you decide what to do.

Anyway have a great weekend and we'll talk to you later.

Take care,

Wood Floors and Nail Caps

Hey everyone hope you're having a great weekend. I was going to do a Facebook live out in this wind or at a home where I just showed some clients but it is so windy.

Anyway I wanted to share an experience while I was showing some homes in Midway today and one of the homes is Sunburst Ranch which is just a beautiful development, they're doing a few more units there and so if you're interested in Sunburst Ranch let me know.

But anyway we're looking in this home and it's wood floors, beautiful wood floors and this couple that I'm with, she starts telling about how when they got married they got a German Shepherd from her dad for their wedding gift. As a puppy it was fifty pounds, anyway as it gets growing bigger it would run to the door when somebody got there and just tear up this wood floor and the wife comes home one day and her husband is putting these covers on the dog's toenails and I've never heard of that, she hadn't heard of it, anyway it worked and they just raved about them. They're called soft paws or toenail caps, anyway a number of different things.

So if you have a dog at home and you need to protect your wood floors you can get these covers, they come in different colors, anyway it sounds so cool!

Anyway I love dogs we just got a new Corgi and he's not getting along really good with our Blue Heeler so I don't know what we were thinking with that, but I love dogs I did a post a while ago about
doggy doors, so anyway I just wanted to share that with you I hope you have a
great weekend. If you have a dog it's a house dog look for some toenail covers to protect your hardwood floors.

Anyway take care you guys and we will chat with you later. Oh wait I got to show you one more
thing just real quick.

Im at Deer Creek, look at these guys out here I don't know if you can see this it is so windy there's whitecaps and these guys are just surfing like crazy look at this guy.

Anyway I was a little long here but have a great weekend!

Take care,

Parcel Of Record - Wasatch County

Hello everyone Brian Olsen here!

I’m up in Wasatch County today and lots of people want to know if certain parcels are what is called a parcel of record.

Wasatch County calls it a certificate of zoning verification and what it means is that you are able to build a home on the property.

I’m on a two, two-acre parcels that are in a twenty-acre zoning, but because these parcels were subdivided previous to 1965 they are grandfathered in to what the zoning was back in 1965.

So if you’re wondering if you can build on a parcel you need to do some investigation. Typically you’ll get with a title company and do some research on the property; when it was last deeded, when it was last subdivided, and if it was meeting the zoning requirements at the time that deeding took place.

So it’s a $100 to get with the county to get this verification done, if it was before 1965 that it was subdivided its almost always approved. As you get closer to 1970s and 80s it’ll just depend on what happened!

Take care,

Lakeview Parkway South Provo

Hey good morning everybody. I am in the south part of Provo this morning and just want to share with you something that I didn't realize was looking so good.

I've been concentrating quite a bit up on the interchange on 2100 North you know as far as trying to see what's happening to stay on top of things, but I am on the Lakeview Parkway where there
is a new interchange off of I-15 and this is just really cool. I just want...sorry I got a phone call there...I don't know if you've been down this way lately but it is just really neat, let me put this where you can take a look at this.

So the interchange is just right over there and here's the Lakeview Parkway heads over right over there just not quite to 1100 West you've got DR Horton is doing a new development going on over there and it is it is just set up really nice.

This interchange is super nice it's going to make it so much easier for people down on this end to be able to jump on I-15 right here.

Most of this property all around here is privately owned. Just down on the other side of 1100 west on this south side of the parkway is some property Provo City owns. But anyway this is just really exciting!

So I didn't know if you've been down this way I just wanted to share it with you and I'm sure there's going to be some nice parks and so close to the lake.

Now I've got to look into this a little bit more and see where things are going to go. You know, what the master plan is here, like I said I haven't looked into this area for a while, I've been looking more into the I-15 and the interchange going on up on 2100 north in Lehi and over to the Mountain View expressway.

So if you get down this way like I said DR Horton has a new development there's some other homes for sale in the older part of Provo here, which has got some nicer older homes, a few parcels that are available.

Anyway, kind of exciting to see what Provo is doing here. If you need any help give me a call, shoot me a text, or Facebook message, or email.

Take care,
Brian Olsen

Park City Rental Investment

Hey you guys hope you're having a great Saturday morning. I am in Park City. and just wanted to share a couple thoughts with you.

I'm at a client's home and I love Park City. it's such a great place and I have a number of clients that are looking for investment properties and so I want to share a couple things to think about as you're looking for investment properties.

My clients home is a fairly large home and one of the things to think about is that various HOAs and places here in Park City.won't allow overnight rentals, and so what are you looking for you're looking to rent the property nightly or do you just want a long-term renter a couple things to think about that way.

The second thing is everybody knows that the ski season, Sundance Film Festival times, those you can rent about any type of property you have; condo, large home, anything.

What we're finding is during the summer the larger homes are renting a little bit better just because there's a lot of family reunions and so anyway a couple things to think about.

I'd love to help you whether you're looking to buy or sell in Park City. Park City is just a great place I love Park city and its really a good time to be looking at buying or selling property.

Anyway give me a call and I'd love to help you out.

Have a great weekend!
