    Utah Sets a New Record for Highest Price Home at $39.6 Million!

    It definitely takes a Rockstar to be able to purchase a swanky 17,500 square foot ski chalet, which is exactly what billionaire Russell Wiener, creator of Rockstar Energy Drink did. The 6-bedroom ski-in ski-out home was developed and then sold by the Iluminus Group in April for $39.6 million, making it the most expensive home to ever be purchased in Utah. The home lies on 5 acres in the Colony at White Pine Canyon development inside the Park City Mountain Resort. Amenities in the home include a bowling alley, an indoor sports court, and an entire “wellness wing”, which includes an indoor-outdoor lap pool, hot tub, gym, sauna and steam room. Each bedroom is complete with its  own terrace and an outdoor fire pit. Mr. Wiener advocates for Utah and called it "pro family and pro-business" and expects the real estate market to keep growing as others are fleeing high tax states. He considered this a purchase a great investment.

    Can I Buy a Home with Crypto?

    Can you buy a home with cryptocurrency? The answer is yes! In fact, there is a home listed right now on the MLS where the seller prefers to be paid in crypto - the price is just $4M (US dollars). While there is only one listing right now on the MLS that specifies a preference for cryptocurrency, it is predicted to become more prevalent in the housing market. 

    Cryptocurrency, although around since 2009, is becoming a trend and is reaching every facet of life where money is involved. Many view it as an inevitable way of the future and more merchants are accepting it as payment for goods and services every day. Electronics, luxury watches, and luxury cars such as Lamborghini and Tesla can be purchased using cryptocurrency. It’s only a matter of time before something as big as a house can be purchased using crypto. KIDDING! The time is NOW! There are already Real Estate Brokerages that have done several real estate transactions using crypto in states like New York, Texas, and ...

    From Burgers to Boujee - Astra Tower Slated to Take #1 Spot for Tallest Building in Utah!

    Have you heard? Something BIG is coming! The Astra Tower, slated to be the tallest building in Salt Lake City (and Utah for that matter), is about to offer some astronomically swanky digs for downtowners. The estimated 450-foot skyscraper, which will offer 372 “luxury” apartments, will be located directly west of the Maverik building on 200 South and State Street, where the old Carl's Jr. used to stand. Crews broke ground (with gold shovels of course) on January 12, 2022 to bring us one of Salt Lake City’s most fabulous and forward-thinking buildings. With the project set to be completed in fall of 2024, Astra Tower will stand nearly 450 feet tall; 28 feet taller than the Wells Fargo Center on Main Street, which currently holds the title for the tallest building in Utah at 422 feet (followed closely by the Church Office Building for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a mere 2 feet shy of that – standing at 420 feet tall). Astra Tower will consist of. ...
