Hi there! I suspect that most people on this forum will suggest that you either move right downtown, Sugarhouse, the Avenues or near the University of Utah.

(I visited Nashville for the first time this past December, and really liked it!)

In those areas you will not get a big house or very updated for that price range, as far as I know. Maybe a 1200 sq ft house built before 1950 with some updates. Or maybe not. In Sugar House, it takes closer to $300K to get something bigger and more updated - although the house itself will have been built prior to 1950, in all likelihood. I can tell you though that many odler houses have all new wiring/plumbing/appliances and have been re-worked pretty extensively. You can' tell from the outside.

Property here is not cheap.

Condos / density living is definitely cheaper if you'd consider that. There's been a lot of new units completed recently.

The Marmalade District by the capitol building is a place to really look. It's walking distance to downtown, but it's an uphill climb on the way back.
