We are relocating to UT. My hubby's home office will be in WEst Jordan but he will be traveling along I-15 most day to various stores.
I am trying to figure out what towns to look at living in.
We have 5 children ranging from 2-14 and schools and a safe neighborhood are a major concern.

I am loving the DayBreak community but am scared it is out of our price range

We currently live in Mississippi about 5 minutes from Memphis, TN. So I like the small town feeling but am use to the city and a 45 minute commute(an hour depending on traffic).

We are Non-LDS and curse, smaoke and like to have a drink from time to time. What town would be a good fit for us...lol

A friend that lives up there says Layton would be a good choice but all the homes I have seen online in our price range don't seem too appealing to me. We would be renting to start out so we can make sure we like the area before we commit to buying.

Any suggestions would be GREAT!!

Layton would probably be a good fit for you socially and financially; however, the commute along I-15 can take MUCH longer than mapquest might tell you. I recommend looking into Kearns or West Valley City. (There's a lot along Bangeter Highway that could be good.)

The real estate market had skyrocketed in the past 5 years. Although, the foreclosure signs are popping back up again. What price range are you looking at? That will help.
Also, Layton is too far north of West Jordan. Traffic will drive your hubby crazy. West Jordan, South Jordan, Riverton, Herriman, and Bluffdale are all 10 minutes drive to his work. Also, the internet only gives you an idea of the homes. When you move to Utah, work with a real estate agent and give him/her what you are looking for.

try looking in west jordan. it is moderately priced and religiously diverse. also, parts of sugarhouse are affordable. that would be around 200 s and 200e slc.
