Professional level property management is essential no matter what area of the country you are in. But it is perhaps more important in Utah than in other states because of the state’s unique housing market conditions. Here are a few key facts about Utah’s housing market that Utah property owners should know.
Many people in Utah have a major financial incentive to rent over buying. The reason: renting is simply more affordable than buying. According to a 2016 report by MarketWatch, there are only eight states in the country where renting is more affordable than buying a home; Utah is one of them. This means that rental properties are seeing increased competition in Utah. If you are a Utah property owner, you need to be prepared to handle this spike in competition.
Because rental properties are seeing increased competition in Utah, rent prices are increasing as well. For you as a property owner, this means that you are under more pressure to offer your tenants a superb renting experience. When your tenants are paying more in rent every month, expectations are going to be higher. Tenants expect to feel that their rental home or property is well maintained, and if it isn’t, they are going to take their business elsewhere.
