In March, Realtor.com dubbed Salt Lake City the “Trendiest U.S. City Where You Still Can Afford To Buy A Home”.
The survey evaluated cities across the U.S. based on the total number of restaurant hot spots, number of bike shops, number of yoga studios, growth of the millennial population, and affordable housing.
Salt Lake City is still one of the most affordable cities for housing nationwide. The median home price in Salt Lake County was $248,500 in 2015. Even upscale areas are affordable for midlevel professionals, including single family home prices in Sugar House and the Avenues (with median prices of $278,000 and $424,700, respectively, for Q4 2014).
The affordable housing boom, coupled with strong job growth and fun activities, is drawing millennials to Salt Lake City. Richmond, VA, Asheville, NC, Pittsburgh, PA, and Minneapolis, MN were also included in the survey’s top five cities.
