property: Salt Lake City, Utah makes top 10 list for best places to buy investment property - 04/23/12 10:57 AM
Salt Lake City, Utah pops up at #6 on Marketwatch's Top 10 best places to buy investment property in the U.S.
They cite low inventory and rising median home prices as reasons, but fail to mention that rents on single family homes are pretty high compared to the cost of homes right now.
My presumption is that families who have lost their homes to short sale or foreclosure aren't too excited about renting a 2 bedroom apartment, so they are looking for single family homes to rent. I've been thinking about keeping my home as a rental for a few years … (4 comments)

property: Q&A: Does property left in a home become the Buyer's at closing? - 04/12/08 04:57 PM
 
Q: One of our acquaintances yesterday mentioned that they were under the impression that when you close on a house technically everything inside the home technically becomes yours as well.  Is that actually how things technically work by default? You close and everything inside the home changes ownership? 
 
A: With regard to your question: if the Seller moves out and delivers possession and they left behind a couch or a barbeque or something like that, then yes, it could become yours.
