Could someone please elaborate for me on the size of Orem and possible jobs in the area? Is it a small, middle, or large town? Or is it considered a city like Orlando, Fl. or Tucson, AZ.?

Orem has its own gov. and services but really should be called a part of Provo's metro area as there is no longer any geographic break between the two. The metro area runs from Springville/ almost Spanish Fork all the way up to American fork now. I-15 runs through all of them as well as State Street so other than passing a sign that say's "welcome to Orem" you won't know that you have changed cities. Provo has good malls but the area is best classified as a very small city.

I would estimate that Orem is this big [...............................]. When I hold that up to a yardstick, it is considered medium. There are definitely jobs in the area, only you didn't mention what kind you are looking for. Finally, you will need to find someone who has lived in Orem, Orlando, and Tucson to answer your last question.

Probable that you can find a PM company to work for but it will likely be a big cut in pay from what you are used to. Thats just the way it is. If I went out to california it would be a huge raise.
Orem has BYU and more of a transient demographic, so there are some large complex's. You may want to contact the Div. of Real Estate to check on licencing requirements. You indicated a background in more affluent housing, sorry but that is just not the makeup of that community. If you have the money to live that way here, most people buy homes not multi-family. Population density here is not even close to what Fl. is

Here you go: www.orem.org - Demographics (http://www.orem.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16&Itemi d=270 - broken link)

That gives demographic information for Orem, including population, city area, percent rented vs percent owned, etc. Like John2timex said, it really does merge right into Provo, so consider these demographics too: City of Provo, Utah ::

Clearly Provo has a much higher percentage of rentals, and a larger population. Hope that info helps.

I live in Orem I used to live in Salt Lake, I have lived in Phoenix (kinda Tucson) and I have been to Orlando. Orem is by far the smallest and about the size of Flagstaff only smashed up along the side of Provo. I say get on Google earth and look at all of the cities and you can click on the setting that showes you buisnesses and that should answer your questions. If you want a biger city move to Salt Lake.

I have lived in The Orem Area all my life. It is steadily growing larger. For a 18 year old teen, there are plenty of jobs

Overall, it is a safe and pleasant place to live. The people are nice and there is much to do there.
UVU and BYU are the major universities in the area . They supply many jobs and many fun entertainment, etc.
