Daybreak rebounded from the COVID impacted slowdown seen earlier in the year, with all segments of the property market performing well. Prices were up, the number of sales increased and the time taken to sell a home dropped. Just like the rest of Salt Lake County the main problem now (at least if you are a homebuyer) is a lack of inventory. Fewer homes for buyers to choose from should continue to apply upward pressure on prices.
