Lisa’s Market Update for April 2020

Another full month into the Covid 19 pandemic, its’ impact on the local real estate market is noticeable but not dramatic.  There are numerous properties being listed and sold, and the numbers in these two categories remained fairly constant from March through April.  The biggest changes are the decreases in most areas in days on the market and price per sq. ft.

The drop in days on the market, from 134 to 86 for Ogden Valley single family homes, 90 to 4 days for condos and townhomes in the Valley, 49 days to 14 for Mountain Green single family, and 27 days to 14 for single family homes along the Ogden Bench – indicates the recent trend of limited inventory is continuing.  And there are buyers during this very different business environment.  A number of multiple-offer dealswere reported in April.

The drop in price per sq. ft. across three of the four geographical areas covered in the statistics below could indicate a market with a softening price curve, but it will take at least another month of statistics before any meaningful conclusion can be reached.  Ogden Valley single family homes price per sq. ft. dropped from $185.00 in March to $171.00 in April.   Condos and town homes in the Valley dropped from $250.00 to $225.00, and single family homes price per sq. ft. on the Ogden Bench dropped from $138.00 to $128.00.

I continue to offer full real estate services to my clients and prospective clients.  I wear a mask, gloves and practice social distancing at all showings, as much for your protection as mine.

Dining Options for Pick-Up, Delivery in the Ogden Valley

We are going through a very different, challenging time.  But we are fortunate to be in this lovely valley…and the relative safety and distancing it offers.  I am dedicated to doing everything I can to help our families, loved ones, and members of our community stay safe.

Please stay home when you can, wash your hands, wash your hands, etc.,  and hopefully we’ll all get through this difficult time sooner rather than later.

Lisa’s Market Update for March 2020

March showed a dramatic increase in prices, price per sq. ft. and other categories across all geographical areas related to real estate sales and properties on the market.  This was likely due to existing contracts and seller’s plans to market their property – before the impact of Covid-19.

Single family home sales in the Ogden Valley jumped from 7 in February to 13 in March, the median sales price went from $540,000 to $590,000 and the price per sq. ft. from $172.00 to $185.00.   Condo and townhouse median sales price in the Valley increased from $229,000 to $336,000 and the price per sq. ft. from $213.00 to $250.00.  There are 34 condos and townhouses currently on the market in the Valley, up from 24 in February.  In the Mountain Green area, median sales price for single family homes increased to $443,000 in March from $381,000 in February, and the price per sq. ft. increased to $145.00 from $116.00.  Along the Ogden Bench, home sales jumped from 34 units sold to 51, the median sales price rose to $265,000 from $203,000, and the price per sq. ft. from $121.00 to $138.00.

The Market Update for April should reflect more of the initial impact of Covid-19, social distancing and the state of the economy.  I will have those updated statistics for you by the middle of May at the latest.

Lisa’s Market Update for February 2020

The first couple of weeks of February continued to produce consistent storms and great ski and riding at Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Nordic Valley.  The Junior National Alpine Championship Super Giant Slalom, Giant Slalom and Slalom races were held at Snowbasin the week of February 24th, along with a couple of days of FIS point races.  According to press reports, this was the most important alpine race series held as Snowbasin since the 2002 Olympics.

An event as significant as the Junior Alpine Championships brings a number of family members, friends and athletes to the Ogden Valley for the first time.  History assures us a number of these visitors, along with those newcomers with Epic Passes, or those just curious about the great press Snowbasin and Powder Mountain have been recently receiving – will start checking out the local property markets.

Real estate sales statistics February for the Valley, Mountain Green, and Ogden Bench areas show markets that are mostly steady, although there were a few decreases and increases across different areas and categories of the numbers.  The median price of single family homes sold in the Ogden Valley dropped from $556,000 to $540,000 and the median price per sq. ft. went from $225.00 to $172.00.  At the same time, the median sales price for single family homes in the Mountain Green area increased from $335,000 to $381,000 and along the Ogden Bench the median sales price went to $263,000 from $239,000.  One month is too short a period to indicate a trend, but the numbers in March will bear watching.

Two Excellent Fine Dining Options in the Ogden Valley

After years of a conspicuous lack of fine dining options in the Ogden Valley- there are now two exciting opportunities to enjoy a beautiful dinner in environments that range from classy to extraordinary

Sky Lodge Photo REV

View from Skylodge, at sunset, just before diners take their seats.

The Skylodge, just off the parking lot at Hidden Lake at Powder Mountain, is the site of Tuesday evening Community Dinners.  The internationally themed cuisine is elegant and delicious, the staff friendly and efficient, and the views of sunsets across the peaks of the Wasatch and the Great Salt Lake, from 9000 ft., are stunning…magnificent…jaw-dropping!  There is room for only forty diners, and the events sell out quickly.  If you pre-purchase your tickets, it’s only $40.00 per person.  There is a cash bar.

Kuna Bistro offers a large, Brazilian-inspired menu, and an impressive wine and beer selection.  Open for only a couple of months, the often packed restaurant is testimony to the quality of the dining experience.

Lisa’s Market Update for January 2020

The Ogden Valley was packed with skiers, boarders, families and friends over the holiday season.  Combined with some especially positive media about Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, the Summit Group and their development – the result is a lot of folks interested in property, and those buying in January are paying prices that, in some categories, are setting new records.

The median price per sq. ft. for single family homes sold in the Ogden Valley in January, although there were only three sales, soared to $225.00.  Condos and townhomes in the Valley also increased in price per sq. ft. to $214.00 from $211.00.  Single family home sales in the Mountain Green and Ogden Bench areas also remained strong.

The upward trend in prices and corresponding lack of inventory continues in the local real estate market. Sellers should be encouraged. Stay tuned to see what the beginning of the new decade will bring!

A Devastating Loss

Many of us in the Valley lost a dear friend…the snow and water ski industries lost a true icon…and the world lost a wonderful human being… when Dave Goode died on January 15th in a tragic accident while piloting his plane.

This article in the Deseret News pays a fitting tribute to all that Dave accomplished and stood for.

For those of us who knew Dave and his lovely wife Dawn, our hearts are heavy with shock and sadness…and our thoughts and prayers are with the Goode family.
