I am a couple of days late getting this newsletter out because it has been a rough week for the Snyder family. On Monday, our five-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog, Luna, passed away. Our uncontrollable tears are clearly trying to fill the void she leaves but to no avail. Rather than focusing on Luna leaving us too soon, we are attempting to celebrate her life (easier said than done btw). Luna was the sweetest. She was excited to greet every person, dog, moose, or even wild horse, she encountered. Luna was always down for an adventure. She loved hiking, mountain biking, ski touring, or just wading in the river.

There are a couple of lessons from Luna that I will never forget and wanted to share:
-Life is short… you never know what tomorrow brings.
-Embrace where you live and live to the fullest.
-It’s cliché but wag more, bark less.

-Meet every stranger with kindness (but I’ll pass on sniffing their butts).

Property tax assetments are starting to hit mailboxes across Utah. These notices ultimately lead to questions on your property or area’s value. Now is a good time to review and understand values in your neighborhood and prepare a property tax appeal, if needed.

As a real estate professional, I can assist in providing a current, accurate market value for your home. I do this by pulling comparable market data for your neighborhood and recent sales information. This not only helps you understand your annual property notice, but provides you with your property’s current market value.

If you’d like my assistance with your property tax appeal or would like to better understand your property’s fair market value, please connect with me as soon as possible so we can discuss.
