City Creek Living, Financing for City Condo’s in Salt Lake City, Utah

The urban lifestyle has appeared out of no where to be a full fledged living metropolis in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.

There are over 80 +  stores and multiple restaurants that line the pedestrian walkways and link two anchor stores, Nordstrom and Macy’s. There is open air retail and covered retail area, so whether it’s sunshine or the cold winter days or rainy weather, there is shopping for every occasion.  There is even a retractable roof that is amazing.  You think you are in a major league sports stadium or you may not even know it if you didn’t know that the retractible roof is there.

So what about shopping for food for those that live in one of the condo buildings?  There is a full-service Harmons Grocery Store, a full service deli, a pharmacy for your medications / prescriptions, and of course a bakery.  Harmons is located on the south side of Social Hall Avenue, east of State Street.

Food, what if you’re hungry and you need to get your kids food or even yourself or you & your significant other?  Of course there’s a food court.  City Creek’s food court is located on 28 S. State Street between the KeyBank and Eagle Gate Towers.

Some of the questions that many people throughout Utah are asking about City Creek Living:

How do people do it?  How can someone afford to buy one of these condo’s or a place there?

Isn’t bank lending all but gone because of the credit crunch?

Is everyone that is buying a condo in City Creek or in downtown Salt Lake all independently wealthy?  No!

Do you have to be Mega Wealthy to buy one of these condos? No!

What are the options to buy one of these condo’s?

Because most banks and credit unions won’t lend on a mortgage loan for a skyrise condominium, what are my options?

Ben Gerritsen, a Utah Mortgage Broker works for a mortgage broker in Salt Lake City, Utah, .   specializes in financing real estate and finding lenders that have niches and loan programs for different scenarios.  Ben has loan programs and lenders that will lend on skyrise (high rise) condo’s.  Some of the banks are located outside of Utah, but will lend in the Utah market.  They lend higher loan amounts, have more aggressive loan pgorams, higher loan to values than the local lenders.

Ben recently helped a famiily with a jumbo loan in Utah county and was able to find a lender that lent 5% higher than all of the other local lenders.  This worked out to save close to $50,000 for this family.
