In Weber County, 70-percent of assessment appeals are successful. Here’s what you need to know.

property tax weber county utah

For many homeowners, the day the county property assessment arrives in the mail is a day of reckoning. It’s nice to see that your property investment is going up in value, but if the assessment comes in too high, the new tax bill can be painful. On top of that, there are also many instances in which your assessment may be higher than your property’s true value. This, in turn, will lead to you paying more than your due in taxes. 

This isn’t necessarily a case of The Man trying to skim a little extra off of the back of the people. By and large, county assessors try to put a fair value to each property. But accurately assessing the value of tens of

10 Reasons Why Homes Don't Sell

Generally speaking, home sellers want their home sold as quickly as possible. When the process takes longer than expected, the seller wants to know why (rightly so). We’ve compiled a list of the most common mistakes that lead to a real estate listing not selling, and how to fix them!

 

  1. Photos Suck
    The photos suck.

    First Impressions Matter!

    The search starts online; over 93% of buyers are using the Internet to find their home. Bad lighting, grainy quality, or even just bad angles can turn someone off in an instant. Hiring a professional photographer costs more but pales in comparison to the amount of money you are leaving on the table if you don't. Read more about professional real estate photography HERE.

Skyline Residents Happy in a Roundabout Way

Residents along the Skyline drive corridor will now be driving in circles, thanks to the completion of two sections of roadway connecting Weber State with Highway 89. Each project, one by Weber County and one by Ogden City, is meant to increase access to main roads like Harrison Boulevard and Highway 89.

The project added two roundabout intersections, one at Combe Road and Skyline, the other connecting Country Hills Drive, 1600 East, and Skyline Drive - previously an awkward arrangement of connecting roads. Even though access is much quicker southward toward Davis County and Salt Lake, some residents are still left with their heads spinning. 

Despite the worry of increased traffic along the roadway,

Pet of the Month April 2018

April 2018 Pet of the Month

NAMES:  Snickers and Oreo

BREEDS:  Chihuahua/Dachshund mix and Border Collie

AGES:  2 years and 1 year

GENDER:  Both Males 

ADOPTION FEE:  $100 – Includes two $40 vouchers to use towards their neuter. It also includes current vaccines and goodie bags.

HISTORY:  These dogs must be adopted together because of the close bond they have with one another. The former owner was relocating and couldn’t continue to care for them. Snickers is very calm for a Chihuahua and rarely barks. Oreo is more active and takes a minute to warm up to people but becomes very loving after that, offering human-like hugs. This pair can be very playful and would be fine around children older than 6.
