We are planning to move to Utah in the next few months. We have been looking at rental homes on KSL.com. Can anyone tell me why there seems to always be numerous homes available for rent on South Mountain? Is it just the wind and the fact that the higher up the mountain you go the colder it gets? Or is there something else going on with these neighborhoods? Are there other places to look for rental properties besides KSL.com and Craigslist that anyone can recommend?
Thanks for your HELP!!!

They are for rent b/c the owners can't sell them. Search this forum for threads on Suncrest, for example.

If they are newer homes (03-08) as Belle said, they can't sell. The same thing is happening in my area, my community started in 05.

Sometimes they fall off the mountain because many are built on unstable terrain...

Check out West high, they seem to be the best if you are interested in IB etc. I have not heard of the 2 other schools in your poll.....

If you would consider moving to Park City, there is an IB program there.

I believe that Skyline High also has an IB program. AMES is supposed to be a pretty good school. It is located adajacent to Cottonwood High. Although it is a public charter school, it does have a pretty rigorous course load with AP and concurrent options available. If I lived in the SL valley, I would have tried to get my daughter into AMES.

Where is the proof of these houses falling off the mountain?

Is there some vast conspiracy to continue having people move up there, only to have them fall to their deaths?

Were the houses up there built on an old Indian cemetery where they only moved the headstones?

Hearsay and conjecture on the internet?

What I would like to actually know is why do so many locals on the message board share such animosity towards the aforementioned area?

Environmentalists who don't believe they should have developed the area?

Jealous people who resent having someone "looking down" upon the rest of the valley?

Help me out here people, I'd love to understand considering I'm about to become one of you in a week...

It's a fact that they built on an old landslide area and the city should never have approved the development. Google it and see what the local news had to say. We hate to see a naive outsider taken!
