Hi, we work close to the fairpark north salt lake.

We want to buy a singe family home that will have current basement rental potential and which would have a higher appreciation value in the future. (like most home buyers would want to i guess!!!). Our kid doesn't go to school till another 3 years.

We are looking at Bluffdale as its a bit cheaper right now, but our friends live in West Jordan and cant stop raving about its growth potential and want us to move there.

Commute is the same time for us to both locations , give or take 5 mins.

I want to say Bluffdale has greater potential after the prison moves out in 3 to 5 years, but West Jordan is hot right now (as per my agent)

Would Bluffdale be better investment as its close to Lehi or would West Jordan close to mountain view corridor be better.

Any insights from you wonderful people here would help us a lot.

Are you looking for maximum appreciation or growth? Or both? Or assuming that growth = appreciation? It's not clear to me. Regardless, in many cases places that are built out have greater appreciation because they're built out (scarcity). And I, for one, would stay as far as possible from the super-growth communities. Rapid growth = traffic, inconvenience, trucks, more pollution, more sprawl and a generally gross environment cause of constant construction. But YMMV.

Bluffdale likely provides the greater amount of future price appreciation IMO. However I would think it would also be a riskier proposition as well. If they economy does turn then all of the future tech expansion in Lehi/Bluffdale would be put on hold. There likely is downside risk in WV/WJ/SJ but would assume the downside risk in Bluffdale would be greater.

My opinion, the best parts of West Jordan for growth and appreciation are west of Mountain View. I probably buy in Bluffdale before buying east of Bangerter in West Jordan.

I live in Bluffdale and it's already growing. Plus I think Bluffdale schools are better. West Jordan is more congested now.
