Ogden Valley Market News

November 28, 2012

Ogden Valley's market is beginning its long climb from the depths of the recession. After years of declining property values, the market has stabilized. According to the numbers available year-to-date, 2011 was the bottom for Huntsville, Eden, and Liberty, Utah and while the statistics indicate an increase in value, median sold price for 2012 year-to-date is $258,000, still below even 2005's average of $276,500.

We still have a few luxury homes to close this year, so watch for my final analysis of 2012. With 108 homes sold year-to-date, the final numbers should be close to 2011's 120 total units sold. This includes homes and condos but excludes land sales.

And last but not least, the median asking

I got a chance to sneak out Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2012, to help mark the official start of the 2012-13 winter ski and snowboard season at Snowbasin in Ogden Valley. I've never been big on catching the first chair of the day, or even waiting for a ski gate to open. But today, I really wanted to check out the scene and take some photos of the first gondola ride up the mountain.

It hadn't snowed for some time, there wasn't much snow on the ground, and the night temps weren't great for snow-making. Never the less, I knew the core community of locals wouldn't miss opening day and were about to rejoice in its opening. I wanted to be a part of it.

For opening day, Snowbasin was offering skiing & snowboarding off the Middle Bowl Triple and Little

The ski and snowboard season is finally here! We've prayed long and hard for the righteous return of that white, wintry, and wonderful gold. The gods of winter heard our pleas and bestowed upon us bounteous early-season snow. With this blessing of powder, many of Utah's winter resorts have already opened, and many more are slated to open in the coming days and weeks.

Already opened are Alta, Brian Head, Brighton, Park City, Snowbird, and Solitude. Snowbasin is scheduled to open on Thanksgiving, while Wolf Mountain and Canyons will both open on Friday, November 23rd. Beaver Mountain, Deer Valley, and Sundance are all scheduled to open in early December. Powder Mountain's opening date has yet to be determined, but the resort recently issued a statement

Christmas will come early in Ogden this year, as it does every year, thanks to the Weber School Foundation’s Christmas Tree Jubilee. For more than 30 years now, this annual charity event has marked the beginning of the holiday season with festive cheer, selfless acts of service, and, of course, beautiful Christmas trees. This year will be no different.

The history of the Weber School Foundation and the Christmas Tree Jubilee are independent, yet synonymous.

In 1977, the state of Utah passed an act of legislation that permitted school districts to begin using non-profit organizations to acquire funds and donations for educational purposes. Shortly thereafter, a group of community advocates formed the Weber School Foundation.

On Wednesday, October 3rd, our owner Brandi Hammon sat down with Ogden School District Superintendent Brad Smith to talk about the goings-on at schools around Ogden. As it turns out, big things are happening in the Ogden School District - big things indeed.

In recent years, it's been no secret many Ogden schools have scraped the bottom of the barrel in state academic rankings. In fact, according to KSL, six of the elementary schools in Ogden ranked in the bottom 25 after the 2010-2011 school year. James Madison Elementary School and Dee Elementary School ranked 555th and 556th, respectively, out of 556 elementary schools in Utah. These stats disappointed Superintendent Smith, and he knew it was time to make some major changes. But he also knew change
