The city of Herriman is located in southwestern Salt Lake County and is continuing to grow and develop, populated mainly by young families. With a new townhome community, The Grove, coming soon to Herriman, here are a few key reasons to consider making Herriman your home.


It’s easy to find a variety of home types in Herriman, making it a great option for both the first-time homebuyer and those looking to move up. Compared to most states, the cost of living in Utah is still quite low. With a population that’s growing quickly, it’s a great time to get in now to be apart of the boom!

Outdoor Recreation.

The city offers a great variety of outdoor activities and landscapes for those in search of a healthy and active lifestyle. The extensive list of trails, parks, and preserves are one of its most attractive features. Nearby boating and beaching can be enjoyed at Blackridge Reservoir. Enjoy hiking or mountain biking at Clipper Peak, Lowe Peak or Flat Top Mountain, just minutes away.

Proximity to Shopping and Dining.

Having stores and restaurant options just a short drive away is one of the biggest concerns for new homebuyers. Herriman residents enjoy plenty of options at Mountain View Village, The District, Thanksgiving Point, and the Traverse Outlets. And best of all, since you’re out of the city you can enjoy getting your daily tasks done without suffering through heavy traffic.

Easy Commute. 

Herriman is located along the outskirts of Salt Lake County, still within easy reach of major employers located in Riverton and South Jordan and just minutes of major highways. The Mountian View Corridor gives easy access to Bangerter Highway and Redwood and is the equal distance to Lehi and Salt Lake for those who need to commute.

The Grove will present a collection of upscale attached home designs available in two spacious floorplans. These homes will showcase open-concept living areas, modern kitchens, luxurious master suites, full, unfinished basements and select homesites enjoy stunning mountain views.

Every home comes outfitted with our signature Everything’s Included® features and upgrades at no additional cost. These include items such as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, luxury vinyl plank flooring, integrated home automation and more as standard.

It is always a good idea to prepare your home for the next season before it officially starts. With the warm summer months coming to an end, now is the perfect time to start preparing your home for fall and the cold winter that follows. Use the following tips to ensure that your home is in tip-top shape for the upcoming Minnesota winter.

Check for Cracks

Especially in older homes, caulk can wear out after a while, so it is important to check around the exterior of your home for any gaps, cracks, or loose caulking. Be sure to look around areas such as your foundation, windows, pipes, ducts, and faucets. Any cracks that you find will need to be sealed to avoid cold air from seeping into your home. In homes that are older than 15 years, you may need to add additional weather stripping to your doors and windows to further prevent cold drafts from entering.


Minnesota’s weather can take a toll on your homes roof. Roofs that are older than 20 years may begin to show wear, so it is vital to check for any problems before the temperature drops. Inspect your shingles for any signs of cracking, buckling, or rotting – these will need to be replaced before the snowfalls.

Remove Leaves

Stay consistent with cleaning your gutters during the fall as many leaves and other debris tend to gather in them. Clogged gutters increase the chance of ice damming and other water damage to your roof when the snow falls and melts, or during heavy rainstorms. In addition to removing leaves from your gutters, you will also want to make sure that they are off your roof and lawn, as they can create damaging mold and funguses.


In older homes without frost proof sillcocks, it is important to drain all your outdoor faucets and sillcocks to prevent water from freezing in them and bursting your pipes. If you have an irrigation system in your yard, that also needs to be drained out. Blow out your pipes and winterize per the installer’s instructions.

Check Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

It is good practice to test and change the batteries every six months in both your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – making this a maintenance chore for fall and spring. Also, verify the age of your devices to make sure that they have not expired.

Although we wish those warm temperatures could stay awhile longer, winter is fast approaching. It is important to be prepared, especially in older homes, to assure that few to no problems occur during the frosty months.

You’ve moved into your first home. Congratulations! But how do you make the space your own? This blog is your guide to understanding the design benefits of having your own home instead of renting from somebody else. From choosing the color scheme in your home to beautifying your backyard, there are a number of facets of interior and exterior design to take advantage of when you’re a homeowner.

Interior Spaces

Deciding on a color scheme for a room means a whole lot more than just painting the walls the right shade of blue. The interaction between the colors of the walls, furniture, and accents is a delicate balance. But fret not! This art can be learned. Hundreds of books on every different interior design movement have been written, from minimalism to mid-century modern.

A good rule of thumb to keep in mind when deciding the colors of a space can be simplified by a formula known as the 60-30-10 rule. That’s 60% main color, 30% secondary color, and 10% accent color. These proportions give balance to the space the colors occupy, the concept is simple to use, and even simpler to break when you’re ready to express your own ideas about color.

Consider bringing elements beyond fabric and paint in to change the color scheme of a room. Wooden or metal accents like end tables or ceiling fans can have a dual purpose, adding earth tones to a room while also giving a more rustic feel to a space. Bring natural elements like a hanging kitchen herb garden or sprawling ivy to make a space feel brighter and more vibrant.

While the inside of your home is completely fair game, it’s important to remember that your homeowner’s association may have certain requirements about the colors outside of your home can be. You’ll more than likely get away with the red front door you’ve always dreamed of in any neighborhood, but a neon greenhouse with pink trim may not fly with your neighbors.

Exterior Spaces

To make the most of all of your space, it’s important to use every bit of what’s yours. One of the biggest differences between an apartment and a home is the yard to do with what you wish. Find a shady spot in your backyard to enjoy a garden and set up a decorative table and a few chairs to encourage relaxation and thoughtful conversations, and surround the space with a few fragrant herbs to make people want to stay out there longer.

If you’re afraid of forgetting to take care of a garden, encourage your green thumb by planting herbs and vegetables in your yard that you enjoy, giving a stronger reason to make sure you’re checking in on how things are growing.

To make your backyard into a Zen space, pick up some large stones and arrange them as a border to a flowerbed or in a zone of their own. In some instances, stones will grow moss that will give a vibrant green hue to counter the splash of muted grays and blues that many rocks will bring to a brightly colored backyard. Whether it’s inside or out, it’s easy to add your personality into your space. With tons of books and articles written on different interior design styles, it’s easy to spend an afternoon online or in the library deciding which ones speak to you as an individual. Take advantage of a private backyard and arrange a garden to take a momentary escape and recharge your mental batteries. But most of all, remember to have fun with it! To find more ways to make your space your own be sure to Like Lennar on Facebook.

The leaves have started falling, the days are getting shorter, and slowly the nights are getting cooler. The fall is slowly announcing its arrival.

With fall quickly approaching, it is officially time to prep your home for the cooler weather. Although the fall season puts an end to all the summer fun, there’s something beautiful about autumn’s cool weather and vibrant colors.

Follow these 8 Tips to Prep your home for the Fall:

Create a Mudroom

If you do not already have a mudroom in your home, now is a perfect time to organize the area near your entryway and prepare it for the cold and wet weather. Doing as little as investing in an indoor-outdoor rug will protect your floors from dirt and dust. If you’re feeling a little crafty, you can set aside a weekend to build a wooden shoe rack and storage bench. 

Inspect your Windows and Doors

The fall might be the perfect season to open the windows and welcome the cool, fresh air into your home. But it’s important to inspect your windows and doors to ensure that there are no cracks leaking the warm air out of your home this fall. To reduce the amount of warm air loss, weatherstrip your windows and doors.

Clean Out Your Gutters

It is crucial to clean the gutters now that the leaves have begun to fall to prevent problems in the future. Remove all leaf pile-up, debris or any type of blockage in the gutters and pressure wash them to allow free flow of water. While you’re up there check your roof for any loose shingles.

Hang Heavy Curtains & Stock Up on Blankets

Before turning on your furnace this fall, hang heavy curtains throughout your home and keep warm blankets wishing reach. Heavy curtains will help keep your home warm during the fall and winter, and the blankets will keep your family warm while lounging until its necessary to turn the furnace on.

Turn Off Outdoor Plumbing

If where you live experiences below-freezing temperatures, it is important that you drain out all of your outdoor faucets and insulate them to avoid damage from frozen pipes.

Put Up all Patio Furniture

As summer officially comes to an end, its time to put all patio furniture away until next year. Patio furniture is not built for colder weather, so it’s better to go ahead and put it up in storage now before winter.

Remove Loose Branches

While you are taking care of some outdoor home maintenance, take some time to remove any loose branches off trees that surround your home. Not doing so could result in them falling on your home due to snow build-up or strong winter winds.

Replace Batteries in Smoke Detectors

Check that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have working batteries, it’s important to replace for your home and family’s safety.

Looking into settling down and buying a home soon? One of the first things that you need to decide on is whether you want to live in an upbeat city or find comfort in a family-friendly suburb. Before taking this major decision it is important to consider many factors. This Zillow checklist will help you decide where to live.

Choosing to house-hunt in the city, suburbs or far from the madding crowd is one of the first decisions you’ll make. Cities hum with urban energy, suburbs offer family-friendly enclaves and the country can be a breath of fresh air. The choice you make should be what works best for your lifestyle.

Communities and neighborhoods are always changing, and house values change right along with them. So when you start house shopping, look for an area you think is comfortable for you today and a smart investment tomorrow.

Here a checklist as you sort through your options:

Amenities: Are there nearby parks and open spaces or chic shops and trendy restaurants? How about libraries, grocery stores, and fitness centers (or a community center with all of the above)? The best way to find out is to get out of the car, walk around, and ask the locals what they like and don’t like about the area.

Schools: Even if you don’t have children, this may be the single-most important marker of a good neighborhood. That’s because many homeowners do have kids, which means they’re concerned about low crime, safe streets, good schools and the other characteristics that help good neighborhoods stay that way. Find out about test scores, class sizes, and school ratings and reviews on Zillow. This information is furnished by schools rating site GreatSchools and is included on any home you see on Zillow – whether it’s for sale or not.

Community services: You want to get a sense of the community and its current affairs. Reading community blogs and local newspapers will clue you in about issues like traffic, safety and development projects.

Transportation: If you want to be car-free, check out the local transit system. See how close the stops are to the neighborhood or whether you’ll need to drive to a transit parking lot. Check how often the transit system runs throughout the day and into the night. Homes on Zillow include a Transit Score which measures how well the address is served by public transportation.

Commute times: If you plan to get to work by car, determine whether you will you be driving residential streets or busy arterials. Drive around at all times of the day and not just on the weekend while you’re looking at houses. Drive your route during rush hour. Few things in life are more frustrating than finding out that a 15-mile commute to work takes an hour, each way. Drive it a few times and for a true test, nothing beats 5 p.m. commute home on a rainy or snowy Friday evening.

Ease of access: Get a map of the city and put a dot on the places you will frequent: Work, shopping, schools, etc. You may be able to purchase a home outside of the city or farther away for less, but do you want to spend time in the car? Maybe that more expensive house closer-in could be a better deal after all. Each Zillow listing includes a Walk Score, which indicates how walkable the home is based on the distance to nearby amenities.

Safety: You can check online crime stats or drop by a local precinct, but the bottom line is whether you feel safe walking around at night.

Economic stability: A healthy mix of residential neighborhoods (property taxes) and businesses (sales and payroll taxes) sets the stage for vibrant, well-funded communities. Cities with colleges and government services are most likely to remain stable.

When it’s time to relax, do you like to walk the dog, browse the shops or hit the clubs and cafes? Or do you need wild open spaces and lots of elbow room? When you start to prioritize your preferences, you’ll likely find your choices will determine where to live.

Congratulations on taking the first steps toward purchasing a home! These are a few pointers to assist you to navigate the mortgage loan process with Eagle Home Mortgage, a part of the Lennar family of companies. Eagle Home Mortgage has been operating since 1981, and in 2018 alone provided home financing to more than 35,000 households.

Now that you’re becoming a homeowner, there’s a lot to celebrate. You are ready to purchase your first home, you’ve done your homework and are ready to jump in. We want to provide you with some direction as the mortgage process can sometimes be overwhelming. You have a steady job, saved for a down payment and chosen a neighborhood where you want to put down roots. Eagle’s goal is to ensure that you have an effortless, seamless experience.

The Approval Process

Pre-qualification is the first step of the mortgage loan process. A quick look at your financial situation is taken. This step is completed casually, either online or over the phone. You’ll provide basic information about your income, assets, and debts, and the lender performs a credit evaluation, giving you a ballpark estimate of how much money you’ll be able to borrow. Keep in mind, however, that this step is based solely on the information you provide.

A Pre-approval is more comprehensive than a pre-qualification. For starters, you will need to complete a mortgage application. An underwriter will then conduct a thorough financial background check by reviewing your credit report, pay stubs, bank statements, tax information, assets, and obligations. After a determination of your creditworthiness is made, you will be notified of the results.

What to Determine Prior to Applying for a Loan

There are a few different things to keep in mind when purchasing a home. The biggest three to consider are how much you can afford based on your monthly gross income, what you feel comfortable spending on a monthly mortgage payment, and whether or not you have the cash required for a down payment.  As a rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to spend under 43% of your gross monthly income on your total housing payment.

Common Mistakes of Pre-Homeowners

When moving through the mortgage loan experience, there are a number of different elements that you need to stay on top of. The biggest, and possibly most important thing to keep in mind, is to stay honest throughout the whole process. This will allow the lender to better assist you. 

Make sure to properly disclose where the funds for the down payment and closing costs are coming from. The lender is working with you to make the process as seamless as possible! In addition to this, make sure to be very detailed on income and employment history.

Some things, like purchasing a new item on credit or changing employment during this time, can cause the loss of a loan approval, so make sure to stick to the same job and put off getting that new car that’s calling your name!

As a final thought, make sure to keep your money where it is when you start the process. All funds for the transaction need to be verified, and moving money around can cause the request of more documentation and delays on being approved.

At this point, you can begin to shop for a home! You’ll probably have a sales price in mind to consider when searching for the right community to become a part of. To find the community that fits your family’s needs and lifestyle, be sure to Like Lennar on Facebook!
