Your Buyer's Agent for Ogden Valley Real Estate

Beautiful Ogden Valley Real Estate


So after a few winter visits to Wolf Mountain Resort in Nordic Valley, a courageous run in the Hunstville Marathon in the fall, and seeing the whole area from an air balloon during the Balloon Festival, you have decided that it is time to purchase a vacation home in your favorite vacationing location – the Ogden Valley. Located just east of Ogden and north of Salt Lake City, you think it is the perfect place to spend summers, falls, winters or springs. You also know you can probably bring in some good income from your vacation home when you are not there. And with declining home prices, you think this is the best time to purchase.


So where do you start? Although you visit the area often, staying at the resorts, you are not too familiar with local real estate other than some casual internet searches or drives around the towns while you are visiting. But now that you are serious about purchasing in the area, you want to work with an expert, a local real estate agent that will guide you.


In real estate purchases, as a buyer you should enlist the knowledge of a local realtor that will serve on your behalf. They will help you as a buyer find homes for sale that meet your specific needs.


With so many options in the Ogden Valley from communities to housing types, going with your own agent may be the best route to find the type of real estate you want. The Ogden Valley is made up of three communities. In the north is the area of Liberty (sometimes referred to as the Nordic Valley area), which is mainly made up of single family homes on large lots in a somewhat rural, rustic setting. Eden, in the center, has the highest concentration of condominium units, some built like garden apartments, some in rows of townhomes, and others as duplexes. It also has detached homes of all sizes. At the southern end is Huntsville, where there are a few condominium units, but mainly single family detached homes. Homes in the Huntsville section tend to be the most expensive of the three areas. There is also an incorporated area, known as the town of Hunstville and the unincorporated area around it, also bearing the Huntsville address. Considering what is available in Ogden Valley, working with your own agent will likely make shopping for your vacation home much easier and more effective.


So how should you go about choosing your agent? Start with a simple internet search of agents who are based in the Ogden Valley as well as those that have multiple listings in the Ogden Valley area. Then make a few phone calls to those that seem most suitable for you. After speaking with them, decide who you are most comfortable with, and begin your home search. Having your bank prequalification and/or proof of funds to make an offer is highly recommended, it has been seen way to often where a buyer falls in love with a particular Ogden Valley home to only learn they do not qualify for the amount or a once in a life-time deal jumps on the market that requires proof of funds with any offer. Prequalification or proof of funds produced with your offer, makes your offer more sincere to the seller. In addition, having a pre-selected top three to five homes you want to see is a good start. Once you arrive, meet with your agent, visit all the units and make decisions. Following this process should make for a smooth purchase of your Ogden Valley vacation home.
