I may be headed to SLC for job early June, around Dowtown or so. I need help with advice on best areas around there to live please. Nothing expensive, but also fairly decent area. Not necessarily looking to live downtown, just wherever would be easy and a decent area. I like it fairly quiet actually. Also would enjoy nice places to go biking, with access to trails that go on and on.

Thank you

What price range? Near a bus? Do you have a car? People need more info to help you.

Hi

Price is reasonable. Not too high, not too low. Maybe 600-750 or so (800 max).

I have car, but want to have short commute relatively. If I can walk, it would be nice. Not a bus rider, but would consider the TRAX.

Want to know where most people live generally. In suburbs? I bet they are pretty, but don't want to drive far. I may have to live closer to the downtown.

Thank you

ok let me re-phrase this....since I need help asap.

Where do most people live who work downtown in SLC? Do they commute to suburbs, or do they live in uptown (which appears to be Sugar Town in your area). I heard of the Avenues, are they nice? I don't want a place that's very congested, but on the other hand, I don't want long commute. To me, as long as I can quickly get away on my bike (to quieter places/trails...), I am in heaven. Thanks.

Sugar House is mostly houses with a few small apartments here and there. Downtown, the Avenues, and around the university are also good places. Honestly, nothing here is congested. Look at google street views for an idea. The only places I know of are more in the $1000 range.

We live in Murray near Fashion Place Mall and it is a very nice area. There is easy access to some very nice biking/walking paths and I love that the mountains are so close (30 min. and you're at the top of Big Cottonwood canyon with tons of walking paths and picnic areas) There are some nice apt. complexes around here for possibly around your price range. My husband used to work downtown and his commute was about 15-20 min. (maybe longer if its rushhour). Although quite often he would take TRAX too which is about a 20 min. ride downtown from Fashion Place.

Hi,
What do you mean $1000 range? Is it expensive if one wants to be near downtown? Surprise, especially since some may choose to be near the U of U. Thank you

No, just that the specific ones I know are more expensive. I hear that near Capital Hill 1-bdrm is $450 but older.

That's a little too low. If I go up to say 850, will I be able to find something good in the Avenues area? Is that a nice area? I am not really interested in being right in downtown. Also, Sugar House seems nice but probably not for me right now.
