The townhome market is the most robust segment in Ogden Valley and pulled upward by new construction. Median sales value increased from $427,000 (2017) to $499,000. This is the highest value seen for Ogden Valley townhomes to date. There were 19 townhomes sold versus 14 in 2017. Most of this activity was in Huntsville with Lakeside Village (6), Escapes at Edgewater (6); Eden had the Cascades (3), Ridges (2) and Powder Mountain’s new Copper Crest (1). Not all of the newly constructed units are reported on the MLS so it is likely there were more sales.
The demand for vacation rentals and simplified living is part of the drive here.
