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.


A New Year…A New Decade! My Best Wishes for Health, Happiness, and Prosperity!

It’s Still Snowing!

The New Year is here…and one of the best winter seasons on record is continuing!  Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Nordic Valley are all reporting terrific conditions and big crowds.  The resorts have bases that should insure a great season well into the spring.

Lisa’s Market Update for December 2019

The strong, upward trend continues.  December 2019 real estate market statistics for the Ogden Valley, Mountain Green, and the Ogden Bench showed showed no significant decreases, but rather a number of significant increases.  Terrific snow that continues to fall brought large crowds of Holiday visitors to the Valley, Mountain Green and Ogden areas…and this means lots of folks who have now seen the magic of the area will begin to investigate options for purchasing property.

Again, the majority of market statistics for December reflected a steady or upward trend, continuing the strong market for most of 2019.  The largest increase  was a big jump to $705,000 from $536,000 for the median sales price of condos and townhouses in the Ogden Valley, along with a decrease in days on the market in that same category from 4 weeks to 3 weeks.  Days on the market for single family homes in the Ogden Valley dropped to 51 from over 100.  Single family homes in the Mountain Green area showed increases in median sales price from $519,000 to $580,000 and median price per square ft. from $126.00 to $155.00.  The Ogden bench also had an increase in median sales price from $232,000 to $245,000.
