The Real Scoop on the 838 Condos in Salt Lake City

Real Estate Agent

Do not buy a condo at the 838 Condos in Salt Lake City until you have read this. You will not regret spending two minutes to peruse this article. And yes, I would prefer for you to peruse it rather than just read it. I envision you sitting in front of a fireplace sipping tea and nibbling on biscuits while you peruse.

Overview of the 838 Condos in Salt Lake City:
The 838 Condos in downtown SLC are located at 838 E South Temple (hence the name. Pretty clever, huh?) and are about a mile from the city center. If you are looking to be right in the middle of the action downtown, then these condos are not for you. If you are reading this from your Mac, wearing skinny jeans and non-prescription glasses while sitting in a coffee shop, you probably won’t be in to this community either. This community is for the guy, gal, or family looking for a quiet condo close to, but not directly in the city.

Let’s talk about the good and the bad for the 838 Condos in SLC.
838 Condos Entrance
The Good:
The building was built in 1996 which makes the 838 Condos some of the newer condos in the area. The building looks nice inside and out. The HOA fee is relatively low for the area which is due to the property having fewer amenities than some of the other communities. If you are not interested in a pool, racquetball court, etc, then you will appreciate not having to pay for them. Secured parking in the garage is a huge plus, in my opinion. I also like that they have laundry hookups in the unit. There aren’t many things that I dislike more than coin-op laundry facilities.

The Bad:
I’m not sure if this is common throughout the building, but two of the units that I have been in had really creaky floors. Some of them didn’t, but two of them did. I don’t know how prevalent that problem is but a newer building like this one should have quiet floors. The building, and most of the units, for that matter, are fairly plain. Everything looks nice, but very plain. It doesn’t have that luxurious feel that some of the other communities have, although they don’t look bad, either.
