Why are we so bullish about this lovely house in West Valley City? Because it makes unusually good financial sense. Here's what we mean...

This property (which listed officially last week...see details here) has a totally separate — and legal — apartment that rents for $600 per month. The way we figure it, that should offset nearly 40% of your monthly payment for principal, interest, taxes, and insurance.

That’s a hell of a deal.

Need us to put a different spin on it? No problem. Thanks to the extra income from the apartment, you can own this phenomenal home with its palatial garage and ridiculously-huge yard (the parcel is two-thirds of an acre) for roughly the same cost of ownership as a $193,000 house on a puny standard-sized lot.

Too good to be true? No way. Give Paul Svendsen a call at 801.441.8563 and he’ll walk you through all the calculations.

When you buy a home, there’s a whole lot that comes with it. Yes, there are (presumably) ceilings and walls and flooring and fixtures, but the truth is your home extends well beyond your front door. Your home is your street and your neighborhood; it’s your community and the people in it...
