It's the beginning of the summer season, and having a spot to sit by a river or lake can be very appealing. Looking for a home or property with some river or water near Park City?

I picked out a few property in the Park City area surrounding communities,  and happy to see some options in different price ranges! 

In Park City, there are some small ponds and streams in a couple of different neighborhoods,  Lower Deer Valley has a few townhome communities on the Deer Valley ponds, with paddleboarding and fishing in the summer (and used for snowmaking in the winter).   Park City's water comes from the mines near Thaynes Canyon, with some small streams weaving through the Thaynes Neighborhood.

How is the Park City vacation rental market?  A Q & A with Jim Anderson at Park City Rental Properties.  

We have many clients that have invested in vacation rental property, throughout the Park City and Deer Valley areas.  These properties vary in location, size and age.  Some owners use the property extensively during the ski season, rent out their home or condo while their not using it to offset some costs.  Others use them less frequently, to maximize the rental revenue.

We do our best to ask our clients how their rental property is performing.  Were bookings up, down or the same during the past couple of years?  Did people book their trips early or wait until later in the season?  We’re hearing mostly that the past season was strong, especially…

It’s the beginning of May in Park City, and we’ve wrapped up another ski season.  We’re squarely in between ski season and the summer, the town is quieter; restaurants, shops, hotels and other businesses may be taking some time to deep clean, catch up on maintenance, or enjoy some time off. 

I’ve just finished an open house at a listing in the Ridgepoint community in Upper Deer Valley.  Ridgepoint sits at about 8000 feet above sea level, and there’s still plenty of snow on the ground. Some signs of spring are emerging, but it's quiet, and we’ll be waiting for at least six weeks for summer occupancy to pick up. 

My listing in the Ridgepoint community, and many others like it in the area, are used as short term vacation rentals, and are mostly…

Buying or Selling real estate in Utah? What does “As is” mean?

I was speaking with a friend who is selling a property in another state, and the home is currently under contract with a buyer.  My friend told me that the home is part of an estate sale, and they sold the property in “As – is “condition.  Despite this, the buyer is asking a dollar credit, or reduction in price to address items in the home found during the inspection.  My friend was frustrated – she thought “As Is” meant “That’s it…we're done, take it or leave it.” 

While my friend’s sale is occurring in another state, I was able to explain that in Utah, approximately 10 years ago, the standard Real Estate Purchase Contract (REPC) was changed to include “As – Is” language.  This means,…
