RENTAL REHAB:  Worst to First

February 12, 2019 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson

We recently completed the renovation of a fallow rental unit that had sat vacant for many years in Ogden.  The unit appears to have experienced water damage from a fire that occurred in the building many years ago.  The ceiling collapsed and this studio unit was forgotten.   However, in the real estate business, nothing is more contrary to the laws of nature than vacant and unused space.  Every space should be used for its highest and best purpose.  So, when faced by this challenge, we got to work making […]

January 22, 2019 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson

Those of us in the real estate profession were shocked and saddened this week to learn of the death of Realtor and Landlord David Stokoe. We express our sincere condolences to his family and friends during this time of loss and separation.     Details are still forthcoming but the story is already alarming.   On a Thursday, David went to a property he owned in Salt Lake City to collect rent from a delinquent tenant.  Reports suggest he was going to encourage the tenants to leave because of non-payment.  Sometime during […]

SCAM ALERT: Tips to Avoiding Landlord-Tenant Fraud

September 17, 2018 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson

Housing options in Utah are becoming so scarce right now that fraudsters are making a fortune taking advantage of the desperate and unaware.  Take for instance an episode we witnessed just last week.   We listed a one bedroom unit for rent in Ogden on a Wednesday afternoon for $650 per month.  We advertised a $750 deposit, no pets, no smoke, and good credit being a condition of renting the property.  On Friday, a well qualified couple was viewing the unit and discovered a woman walking out the front door.  […]

Ogden’s Rents are Rising

April 13, 2018 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson

While house prices have increased a solid 10%-15% for the past three years in a row, rents have been lagging behind.  But, recently it appears that rents are starting to feel the pressure that house prices have been feeling for some time.   During the past several years, rents have only increased about 5% per year on average.  Let’s keep in mind that lower quality units increased very little and the top quality units could justify bigger increases.  Right now, though, it appears that rent pressures are affecting all units […]

BAMBOOZLED: A Tenant’s Web of Deception

December 19, 2017 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson

We recently leased one of our properties to a family in Ogden.  At the time we received their application, everything seemed normal.  Their income verification checked out.  They received a good reference from a previous landlord in a newer neighborhood in Harrisville.  Their credit was choppy due to medical issues but was otherwise par for what we see with most tenants.  With everything looking good we approved their application and moved them in.   That is when the trouble began.  About a week after their move into the property we […]
