The Orem Utah market trends contributes to the determination of fair market value. For example, if pricing a Orem property for sale, the laws of supply and demand apply. In a seller’s market, the supply of real estate property is lower than the demand of qualified buyers. Therefore, the fair market value in a seller’s market would be higher. In a buyer’s market, the supply of real estate property is greater than the demand of qualified buyers. In that case, the fair market value would be lower.
