I would like some input from the locals on where to move since I last lived in Utah in 2002. I am looking for a reasonable commuter distance by car (20 Minutes or less) or by Front Runner (40 minutes or less). Of course I would like good schools, safe neighborhoods, and reasonably affordable housing for a family of seven (4Bd, 2 Bath, at least 2,400 sq. feet with a basement less than $350,000). I have been leaning towards Davis County or Lehi. Any helpful advice or opinions that might help me focus my efforts would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, I'm just wondering if you've moved yet and found a house and if so, where did you end up?
I'm moving this week. Movers come this Thu/Fri and we drive out this Sat. However, we "have to" stop by the in-laws first in Idaho so I'll be driving direct there before heading down to Utah. I'm super excited for this new chapter in my life! However, I still haven't sold my house yet. 40 days on the market (including over Christmas break), 26 showings, 2 open houses (with 9 groups of people each), but sadly zero offers. Not even a lowball offer. I gotta sell this house first before buying a new home. I'm not one of those that can afford two mortgages at once. However, I do get 2 months of temp housing and they'll be putting us up in a furnished apartment in East Salt Lake City on 134 South 400 East. Looks like we'll be pretty close to the Salt Lake temple!
