Hello,
I am a single woman moving to the Salt lake City area. I would like to buy a home or condo and would appreciate any input about life and real estate Utah. I prefer a house with a little space for my dogs. I am seeking a safe area that offers a social environment for singles. I did not find the urban sprawl in the valley appealing and wondered about living in the City.. I crave a country setting but I am worried about isolating myself.. I am not a LDS..

I'm moving there from Arizona. I have found what I consider the ideal housing area that will have the greatest "community" feel and will appreciate in value at a great rate. Be certain to visit "Day Break" at 114th South and Bangeter Hwy. Even if you don't buy there, you'll want to visit so you have full appreciation as to what is available. This is a community like no other that I have found anywhere in the country. You'll feel accepted whether LDS or not.

We checked out daybreak. It has a lot going for it amenity-wise. However, we felt like the lots were too small and our neighbors would be too close. Also, they just doubled their HOA fees. We opted for a place with no HOA fee and a place with a shorter commute to downtown (Daybreak is at least 45 minutes).

Default Hi...

I am in your situation too...looking to move, single female, two cats and want a less urban/big city type area...my friend lives in Orem, UT and he loves it, it's small...you should check it out...it's also called or near Provo---I had a hard time finding Orem on the map..it's also near American Fork. Anyway, good luck to you! I am also looking for a condo to buy and did not find too much in that type of housing==let me know what u come up with!

Smile Hello

Hello!

I grew up in SLC and I am not LDS. If you are moving here from another state I would suggest either moving to Sugarhouse or Suncrest. Each have great appeal as well as offer a diverse community. I would not suggest Daybreak as a place to move to if you are single and new to the area; honestly, it will not provide you the single social environment you seek.

My fiance and I just moved to Daybreak and commute to downtown salt lake. It only takes us 30-35 minutes.. and we hit majority of the lights on bangerter, so it doesn't take that long, but I might not suggest it for someone looking for a single social atmosphere. It does have a lot of groups/clubs through the community center though if you are still interested. I agree with the sugarhouse suggestion. It's artsy and has a good social atmosphere.. great for someone looking for the downtown without ALL that downtown offers.

Wow, there seem to be a lot of us single, childless females with pets moving to SLC! I'll throw in another vote for living in SLC itself, Sugarhouse & Avenues area. You won't even know you are in "the city" in these areas, it's houses & trees. There are more condos in the downtown, though. In the suburbs you are going to find more families with kids, less of a singles scene, and more LDS influence (meaning more conservative).

Single... I would definately recommend staying near the city. There are tons of condos from downtown to Sugarhouse that you can look into. If you get out of the city and go west it is cheaper, but you also have some seedy areas. Also if you go to Davis County, Utah county or the Southern end of Salt Lake County you'll be the wierd single lady in the neighborhood because it's all BABIES and FAMILIES. Serious.

Best of luck.
