Keller Williams Success Realty has a new office located in Eden, Utah. Actually this office has been there for a few months, but we'll be holding a grand opening soon. The Keller Williams Eden office is located at 2230 N 5500 E, in suite #3, which is on the second floor. We're in the Old Town Eden building, (behind Carlos & Harley's) and the stairs are located on the north end of the building.

Signs of Spring in the Ogden Valley

There are lots of signs that spring is arriving in the Ogden Valley. The warmish sunny days have brought out the bicyclers and joggers, Nordic Valley Ski Resort has officially closed, and snow has quickly melted on the Valley floor.  The ice on Pineview Reservoir has almost completely vanished, and I've even had a report that a paddle boarder was seen on the water in the past couple of days. Today, Sunday, March 20th,  I witnessed what I believe is the first boater of the season whizzing across the water.

This is the view from 5023 E Whispering Pines Lane in The Reserve at Crimson Ridge, Eden, Utah
There are also signs of spring in the real estate market. Spring is typically the best quarter in real estate sales. Five condo/townhomes and six single family homes have sold in the past month in the Ogden Valley. Currently there are four condo/townhomes and eight single family homes under contract in the Valley, and spring hasn't officially arrived.

Inventory is super low, so if you're a seller there's never been a better time to put your home on the market. Buyers, get yourself pre-approved so you're ready to make an offer when you see a home you love. If it's an especially nice home that's priced to sell, you can expect multiple offers.

If you're not familiar with the buying or selling process, contact me at, 801-791-3955 or WendyCrook@kw.com, and I'll walk you through the process, and connect you with a lender if necessary. Visit my website to search for homes, www.UtahMountainPropertyTeam.com, or learn more about the Ogden Valley.

Tired of the Inversions?

Tired of the inversions and smoggy skies? The Ogden Valley has been enjoying sunny days and blue skies. Move your family to the Ogden Valley and give them the gift of clean air. I just listed this gorgeous lot in The Highlands at Wolf Creek, in Eden. It's the best lot in the subdivision for the money, and includes paid sewer and water connection fees. That's a savings of $9,000 to the buyer. Build your home here and enjoy panoramic views of Nordic Valley ski resort, Snowbasin, Pineview Reservoir, and more. There are plenty of lots for sale in The Highlands, but none this affordable, with such fabulous views, and so easily built on. These photos were taken in the morning on February 11th, when Ogden and Salt Lake City had smoggy smelly skies so thick the sun was blotted out. The Ogden Valley had some early morning fog as you'll notice in the pictures, but it burned off by noon.

Autumn Leaves in the Ogden Canyon

The leaves in the Ogden Valley in the higher elevations peaked a couple of weeks ago. There are a few pretty yellow trees on the Valley floor, but all in all the fall "show" wasn't too spectacular this year. I have recently noticed though, there are some really beautiful yellow and gold leaves in the Ogden Canyon. If you're looking to get out of the house this weekend and enjoy this great fall weather, head up the Ogden Canyon and take in the scenery, and while you're in the Ogden Valley, be sure to stop into Crimson Ridge where I'll be holding an open house in the afternoons. Turn onto Morning Side Lane across from Pineview Yacht Club and follow the Open House signs. The views from this house are really spectacular! For a private showing feel free to contact me. 801-791-3955 or WendyCrook@kw.com
