For those considering buying real estate, the current Eden Utah real estate market presents some unique opportunities.
One of the side effects of the economic roller coaster ride of the past few years is that Eden home prices have gone down and more Eden homes have gone on the market. For buyers, that means more choices and better deals. However, those same turbulent years also can also teach buyers a lesson: Make smart buying decisions!
Eden Utah, with its world-class skiing resorts, spectacular Wolf Creek Utah Golf Course, and nearby national and state parks, Eden has some of the best recreational amenities around. Purchasing real estate in this lovely area is enticing for anyone.
Eden, Utah is located about 20 miles from the Ogden area, where one can find shops, restaurants and sights to see. Idyllic for either families or the individual sports enthusiast, Eden and the surrounding areas boast a number of places to be enjoyed. There are museums located nearby (Union Pacific Depot railroad and regional history museum, Hill Air Force base aviation museum), as well as renowned parks (Antelope Island State Park, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Capitol Reef National Park). There are also fun attractions for the whole family, such as Dinosaur Park, the Treehouse Museum, horseback riding and more.

A condominium in Eden is perfect for permanent residence or as a vacation home. When compared to other popular skiing and golf destination spots in the United States, Eden’s real estate is much more reasonable. For example, a destination such as Lake Tahoe, California, which also offers skiing, golf, and outdoor recreational activities, the real estate market there is significantly higher, in terms of median price for condominiums (average price for a condo is $251,000). Another important fact to note is the cost of living is much higher in California, with gas and food prices being a huge factor, as well as California state sales, income, and property taxes being higher than Utah’s.
Other popular ski, golf, and outdoor recreational destinations, such as Ludlow, Vermont or Sun Valley, Idaho, also prove to be more expensive in real estate (average price for condos in Ludlow, Vermont are around $235,000, while Sun Valley, Idaho condos can be in the high $300,000 range or more). The other popular Utah destination known for skiing and golf is Park City, Utah, whose average real estate price for a condominium is around $327,000, which is almost double the cost of a condominium located in Eden.
With its temperate climate during summer months, beautiful fall colors in autumn, excellent snow fall in the winter, Eden is a wonderful place to call home. When thinking of your next real estate purchase, consider a home in a relaxing yet recreation-filled environment called Eden, Utah.
