We may be relocating to SLC, what are the best areas to live. We think the office will be located in Midvale and would like a short commute, but if the areas bad then of course we will commute. Are there any nice master planned communities close by? We would prefer a new home or at the very least a newer home. We will be moving from Raleigh, NC and live in NW Raleigh (inside 540) if you happen to know this area and can point us to a similar area that would be great. This is my first attempt at researching SLC so I apoligize for my lack on knowledge. Thank you!!

Please tell me you don't get commissions to sell homes in Daybreak.

I really should! I am always promoting this place! I am in the finance biz but not real estate, I had some clients come for a visit so we looked at the models, the guy asked me for my name because he assumed I was a realtor the way I was talking.

Time to look into the license!

I grew up in the Salt Lake City area, have lived in five different Salt Lake area neighborhoods during my lifetime (which is a rather long one ). As far as I'm concerned, there is no better location in the valley than Cottonwood Heights. It is about 15 minutes from Midvale. Many of the homes in the area are around 30 years old, but there are some that are only 5 years or so old.

I agree. It's beautiful. But close to Midvale? Hardly!

Remember where I am from, to me everywhere is close to everywhere here.

Thanks, but the homes there look a little small. We are looking for 4+bedrooms and around 3,000sqft and would like to stay between 300-400K. Also according to another poster Daybreak is far from Midvale. We'll check out Cottonwood, but if anyone has any other suggestions those would be welcome. Thanks again!

East Sandy neighborhoods might also be a good fit. Newer homes and not much of a commute to Midvale (city streets rather than freeway).

Anything east of 10th East and anything South of 7200 South to 12300 South (which is Draper).

Hmm, I wonder what homes you are looking at. There are several in that range, some up to 5-6,000 sqft. Our friend has one close to 7,000.

I guess to me 10 miles isn't far, I once commuted 35 miles in Orange County ca, 2-3 hour drives, that is a commute!

Cottonwood is nice also, I just like new areas.
