Oftentimes, the money you lose during vacancy is more substantial than what you would have received with a higher rent. We would love to help you determine the best and most marketable price for your property, and we will work hard to rent it quickly and help you have a profitable experience.

Property Management in Davis County Utah

Davis County Courthouse

West Property Management provides services for all real property in Davis County, a beautiful, fast-growing bedroom community nestled between the Wasatch Mountain Range on the east and the Great Salt Lake on the west. Davis County covers a total of 634 square miles, and the most populated cities are Layton, Bountiful, Kaysville, and Clearfield. Farmington is the county seat, and Hill Air Force Base and Davis School District are the largest employers. The Freeport Center in Clearfield is Utah’s largest distribution center. The renowned Davis School District offers 59 elementary schools, 16 junior highs, 8 high schools, and 3 alternative schools. Higher education is available at Weber State University’s Davis Campus in Layton and Davis Applied Technology College in Kaysville. Davis County was founded in 1852 and named for Daniel C. Davis, a captain in the Mormon Battalion. The original population was only around 1,500, and during the first 50 years growth was slow.  After the Utah Central Railroad (now Union Pacific) was created in 1870, population growth picked up a bit, and when Hill Air Force Base was established in 1940, the population boomed. As of 2012, it was around 315,800. Interstate 15 runs north and south down the center of Davis County, and the FrontRunner commuter rail runs from Ogden to Provo, with Davis County stations in Woods Cross, Farmington, Layton, and Clearfield. Because east-west transportation is restricted by the narrow urban corridor and many people commute to Salt Lake, the county built Legacy Parkway to ease congestion in the area. Construction began in 2001, but due to lawsuits filed by environmentalists, it was halted. After reaching a settlement, construction began again in 2006, and Legacy Parkway finally opened in 2008. In response to the environmentalists’ concerns, the county built an extensive trail system and implemented wetland protection measures and landscaping. They also lowered the speed limit and banned semi-trucks. Some of the best shopping in Northern Utah is found at Farmington’s Station Park, which offers an eclectic array of stores and restaurants, as well as movies, an ice rink, and a state-of-the-art choreographed water fountain. The Layton Hills Mall and Bountiful Main Street also offer premier shopping. Fans of performing arts love the CenterPoint Legacy Theatre in Centerville, and museums and art galleries include Hill Aerospace MuseumLayton Heritage Museum, LeConte Stewart Art Gallery in Kaysville, S & S Railroad Park and Museum in Farmington, and the South Weber Model Railroad Club. Davis County is full of family-friendly recreation. From touring Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolate Factory in North Salt Lake to hiking or biking on any of the 200 miles of Davis County trails, there is always something fun to do. The area is home to 11 regionally-ranked golf courses and three popular amusement parks: Boondocks Fun CenterCherry Hill Resort, and Lagoon. Other outdoor adventures can be found at Antelope Island State ParkFarmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area, and the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve.

The population was only 600 as of the 2010 census, but some sources cite it as approximately 3,500 now. Eden is a quiet, small town with one grocery store, a post office, a few restaurants, a gas station, and magnificent mountain views. The first home was built in the area in 1857, and a community was established in 1859. According to rumor, a government surveyor thought the area was one of the most beautiful he’d seen and suggested the name “Eden” from the Bible. Neighboring communities include Huntsville and Liberty. Year-round outdoor recreation is easily accessible.

At West Property Management, we are familiar with, and love, the Eden area. We would be privileged to offer you our professional services, which provide many advantages for homeowners. One of these advantages is our extensive screening process. Problem tenants can become quite costly, not only financially, but also in terms of time and frustration. While no background check can completely eliminate risk, our thorough, detailed process will substantially lower the possibility of future problems. Once the potential tenant completes an application, we verify photo ID and run the following checks: national and state background; sex offender, terrorist, and criminal; credit report, including score and full payment history; collection accounts or judgments filed; and past evictions. We verify income by either contacting the current employer or obtaining copies of tax returns and current bank statements if self-employed. We also confirm rental history and contact previous landlords about payment history, property condition, and nuisance issues. While it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, religion, gender, age, etc., it is absolutely in your best interest to turn down applicants for poor credit or rental history. We always have your best interests in mind, and will do everything in our power to increase your bottom line. We are accredited with the Better Business Bureau. Eden Homes for Rent

One of the ways we ensure your property is kept in top condition is through property inspections. Our comprehensive inspection program protects your investment and holds the tenant accountable for damages and lease violations. Even good tenants can unintentionally let a small problem, like a drip under the sink, get out of hand, and if small problems are not addressed, they can become big, expensive problems. Regular inspections are vital to identifying potential problems before they progress. We have found that routine maintenance can save thousands of dollars. Our property inspection program consists of routine drive-by inspections, detailed spring and fall inspections, a full inspection before and after each tenant, additional inspections as needed, and an inspection if a tenant fails to pay rent or respond to communications. Tenants are given three days following an inspection to repair any damages found (including lawn care and other exterior maintenance issues). If they do not comply, we will line up the repair and bill the tenant. West Property Management is familiar with the Fruit Heights area and would love to answer any questions you might have about property management. We are a BBB (Better Business Bureau) accredited business. Fruit Heights Homes for Rent


Property Management in Harrisville Utah

Harrisville City Hall

Harrisville, located in Weber County north of Ogden, has a population of about 5,800 as of 2012. It was settled in 1850 by Urban Stewart, who built the first log house in the area. One night in mid-September, he heard a noise in his corn patch and shot at a moving object. This “object” turned out to be a Shoshone Indian Chief, who died from the wound. The Shoshone people retaliated by killing another white man in the area. After this tragedy, Stewart was forced to leave the county. In 1851, Martin Henderson Harris, for whom the city was later named, built a log home in the area.  Harrisville was incorporated in 1962, and in 1964, when it was made a third-class city, the population was 867. In 1976, the city bought the property that was originally owned by the Martin Harris family and built the Martin Henderson Harris Bicentennial Park and Cabin. Residents can rent this cabin, which has become a popular place for wedding, family reunions, and community gatherings. Over the years it has been remodeled and upgraded to make it more comfortable and functional. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the incorporation of Harrisville, and to provide a legacy for future generations, the community created a time capsule in 2012. Residents submitted personal and family information and pictures, which were placed in a binder and buried with the capsule, along with an activity scrapbook of the previous 50 years. The Harrisville History Committee, in addition to publishing Harrisville Horizons, a complete history of the area, has compiled a biography collection of Harrisville residents over the age of 80 who spent the majority of their life in the city. The committee has also put together a free pamphlet that provides a self-guided tour of historical sites. Each summer, residents celebrate Heritage Days with a parade, vendor booths, games, activities, entertainment, a midnight 5K run, golf tournament, youth dance, food, and fireworks. The Youth City Council holds an annual Easter Egg Hunt, and each winter the community looks forward to Santa at the Cabin. The Parks and Recreation Department, in addition to offering youth and adult sports, is in the process of installing a disc golf course. The city also offers no-cost community garden plots, and from Memorial Day through Labor Day, kids enjoy the Splash Pad. Harrisville and Marriott – Slaterville join together for a weekly Senior Citizen lunch and activity, as well as free yoga classes and line dancing.
