Hi everyone! I'm Mark and I'm new to the game and just came to say hi. My wife, Liz, and I live in South Ogden, UT and are just getting started. My wife got her realtors license in December 2017 and has had a few good deals. Now, I'd like to start investing in SFR's and small Multi-family rentals to help secure our retirement. I'm a mechanical engineer by day, so this is a totally new world for me.
Anyone else have experience in Weber County and the surrounding areas? How have things been going for you? I just listened to the podcast with Jason and Carrie Harris from Utah County and it gave me some hope for finding deals in Utah.
Thanks for reading!
Hi @Mark Robison ! Welcome and Good Luck! BP is a great place to learn and get assistance.
Hi Mark & Liz,
Welcome to BP and the wonderful world of investing. There's quite a range of markets in Weber County and North Davis. Having a Realtor in the family definitely gives you a leg up.
I'd recommend making a weekend sport of going to as many vacant properties as you can. In Ogden in particular, condition plays a large factor and it's difficult to get a feel for these properties unless you can see them physically.
Also, there's a local Real Estate Investors Association that's a great way to network offline (nureia.org) (Disclosure: I'm on the board).
Good luck and let us know if we can help!
