The picturesque community of Eden is located in unincorporated Weber County, between the North Fork and the Middle Fork of the Ogden River, in Ogden Valley. 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. Pineview Reservoir, just south of Eden, is well-known for fishing, boating, camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, picnicking, water sports, and winter sports. Fantastic golfing with breathtaking views is available at Wolf Creek Golf Course, and skiers and snowboards have their pick of resorts. Powder Mountain is especially popular for fantastic night skiing; Wolf Mountain is affordable; and Snowbasin is only a short drive away.
Year-round hot air balloon rides are available, and residents and visitors enjoy an annual hot air balloon festival. Red Cliff Ranch, one of Utah’s oldest working ranches, is just northeast of Ogden Valley, and offers horseback riding, hunting, and sleigh rides. Ogden is only twenty minutes away, and offers all the conveniences and benefits of a big city, such as theatres, museums, restaurants, clubs, and more.
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.
