I saw this over on RfM and found it interesting. Below is a link to a public record about the Bednars' purchase of a vacation home in the nice Crossings at Lake Creek community being built near Heber. The $169K current value probably means just the land, and will be much higher once the home is constructed. I find it interesting that the address given is for Church headquarters (does the Church take care of property taxes, etc.?).

I don't know why this bothers me, but it just seems odd for an apostle to purchase a vacation home in a resort area, particularly one who can't be rich (he was a college professor in Arkansas and president of Ricks/BYU-I before his call as an apostle at a young age). Oh, well ....

That's nothing. Take a look at Uchtdorf...

Here's a question:

How does an Apostle of God justify owning two homes when some people in the world have none?

Clearly a big mistake. Jesus would have bought his vacation home near Kanab.

Vacationing in Heber is becoming more and more like vacationing in Sandy. :biggrin:

Sounds like the assessor was a kind hearted mood when he made Elder Benar's Property valuation. Wish that guy would come take a look at my place. There should be some consideration for those of us who put in good works at this board and at MD&D.

Bednar's newly purchased house in heber is not just land, but a full house in Heber, 2500 square feet, finished in 2012 in brand new subdivision, not yet on Google maps. $169K is not palatial, but certainly 2500 feet is a comfortable house for a 61 year old guy (empty nest).

Uchtdorf's house in heber is 3767 square feet, market value $637K, on a golf course. Uchtdorf also has an equivalently valued house in Salt Lake City next to a golf course.

I would really love to play golf with Uchtdorf -- he's probably quite good at it.

On the other hand, what is this about Heber? Is this the business continuity site for the LDS leadership?

No way that will be the final constructed house price for 2500 sq ft in Heber unless some preferential treatment is being given. Try to find anything for that price in the area. Check the comparables.

The billionaires kicked the millionaires out of Park City. That is why so many millionaires are in Heber.

If the house sold for $169,000 in Heber in a new development, it is probably a townhome made of cardboard. That price seems too low by about 100K.

Heber real estate is the poor man's Park City. However, for Mormons, Park City doesn't have that folksy rural Mormon vibe like Heber City does.

Anyone that becomes a drone of a human being deserves a little place out of the city to find their soul again.

I agree 169k is very low. It must be a fixer upper. Maybe he will tear down and rebuild?

To help maintain this missionary force, and because many of our missionaries come from modest circumstances, we invite you, as you are able, to contribute generously to the General Missionary Fund of the Church. President Monson 'Welcome to Conference' April 2013

Explain that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have asked Church members to give one-tenth of the money they earn to the Church for tithing. Since everything we have comes in one way or another from Heavenly Father, paying tithing is really just giving one-tenth back to him. Tithing belongs to Heavenly Father, and we should not keep it from him. Primary 3 Manual
(I assume that means the Heber holiday home is actually God's and Bednar is just house sitting....

lol @ an apostle of God living in a 800 grand house on a golf course in a relatively low cost of living area in relation to many major U.S. cities.

Apostles have come a long way in the past 2,000 years.

I'm wondering, how many weeks holiday does an Apostle get as part of his employment contract?

Stipend Schmipend. Clearly an example of Reformed Mormon (English).... Where one thing actually means another. Stipend being the *spun* synonym of salary... Which of course no one actually gets.

I'd call in Dr. Goodword now for the word history....but he's still wrapped up trying to figure out Adam-ondi-Ahman

That's actually the passcode for the Apostles ATM cards.

Apostles and plastic....hard to picture. Next thing you'll be telling me is they eat their fishes and loaves at Skippers.
