10 Cheapest Places in Utah to Live and Buy a Home (Nice Places)
Let’s talk about the beehive state, Utah.
In recent years Utah has been climbing up the list of most moved to states. Low crime, good schools, jobs, compared to most of the states out west they are doing really good. Sadly, because of their appeal and popularity, the cost of living is climbing along with housing. The median home price in Utah right now at the end of 2021 is $512k. That is well above the $361k median nationwide.
So, those numbers should tell you finding an affordable and nice place to live in Utah is kinda hard. We’ll do our best.
A couple of things to keep in mind, we are looking for nice and affordable. Not just affordable where you are out in the desert with neighbors that have 6 cars on their property that have moved since the Reagan years. The second thing is this is Utah, not Mississippi. The prices will be higher. If you get sticker shock and want to leave a comment about how nobody can afford these prices, you might not, other people can or they wouldn’t be this expensive. We will do all the states and there is much cheaper.
Utah is one of the safest states in the USA.

Everything is decent there but the Mormons kill everything. They’re literally the worst people I’ve ever met. A whole cult feeling being around them anywhere. There’s no separation of church and state, all the government officials are Mormon and use their religious beliefs to influence the laws. And don’t get me started on that there’s a Mormon church around every corner, and now they’re building ugly disgraceful things called micro-temples all over. Mormons could go extinct and this state would get 10x better
How is Utah with the LGBT Community?
Is St. George going to run out of water?
Local officials now say the area will run out of water within a decade. In response, they have taken drastic—and controversial—steps to ensure future hydration: a $1.3 billion to $2 billion, 140-mile pipeline to retrieve 27 billion gallons of water out of the Colorado River that feeds into Lake Powell In the 17 years they have collected funds for the pipeline, they have done nothing on this so called project. This says it all. This town is going to get decimated.
I would consider those rural areas if you can remote work. Salt Lake I15 corridor is right in the middle of the state. Most rural areas are within 3 hr drive of any major “Utah” city.
Briggs, i am retired and looking for a condo and not a house i wish you could show some of those buildings in the categories of places you have visited.
Californians moving in makes it harder for people native in utah to find a place.
Utah sucks and so does our states leadership. I say screw the tech industry moving in and their people. Its a joke. Then they complain about drouts, if we dont have the resourses here to support more growth, than say it! But instead they tell us the drouts are our fault and we need to do better with water while they collect the millions of extra $ they bring in from taxes to line their pockets. I would love to be able to stay here, but honestly, i would be just as happy to watch this state burn to the ground from afar.
I like in the intro how he calls out the broke people 😂😂😂
Logan is terrific
You can build your own off-grid home in Utah, with a well, greenhouse, barn, and solar system for around $250,000. We use Starlink to work online, if needed. Our 250-family community is modeled after the housing co-ops in NYC, except instead of an apartment, you get exclusive rights to a 2.0 to 2.4 acre lot PLUS at least 4 acre-feet of water rights.
A Swede who used to live in BeUTAHful in northern part of Utah in Logan i miss it
We all know the cheapest to buy a house in utah is WVC
I lived in Providence Utah which is adjacent to Logan. IT SUCKED. PRO FORM IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST EMPLOYERS IN LOGAN. It’s owned by a man who we will call Scott Wilsin. A tyranny. Mormons are supposedly not to separate Business from pleasure ie.., treat your fellow man the same always. The man is niggardly with his money. His family languishes in luxury while breaking the backs of weslos employees. Overall people are snobs! Not alot of hospitality in Logan AT ALL. There is one good thing. You can make a trip to Idaho. Logan is close. Right over the border you will find some great fishing. 👍 overall Logan is a college town.Utah State resides there and that makes wages horrible especially if one doesn’t have a special skill set. ie.., e try level jobs! Winters are brutal and summers don’t last that long. Overall I would give it a 3 on a ten scale.
It is Spanish Fort in Alabama, Briggs.
Just moved here to SLC. All the cities mentioned have a major drawback not mentioned here…. air quality. Salt Lake City and the areas surrounding the lake lie in a basin. We experience inversion where, as I have been told, our cold air close to the surface is held in place by warm air above. All pollution effects are intensified as a result. During the peak of the Dixie Fire in California, for a short period of time SLC recorded the worst air quality in the world. In general SLC is among the worst city air qualities in the United States but most often cannot hold even a consideration in some other areas of the world like India, China and Pakistan. Added to that the influx of money coming in from California, Utah natives are finding themselves struggling to be able to purchase properties in their own state.
Roy is not part of the Orem metro area…
You were talking about wide streets. When my mom and I visited SLC we learned they made the streets wide enough for an ox team pulling a wagon could make a U-turn.
Sure would be nice if you would quit giving more big city people and crime a reason to come here…
I’m from Utah and I’ve lived in or very near all these places. Logan is great but a little too secluded for people who like to visit larger cities on occasion. Utah County (Orem, Provo, Springville, and Spanish Fork) is super crowded and offers nothing in terms of culture for nonMormons (they’re really close to great recreation though). Layton is fine but has nothing to do and is largely just a suburb. Ogden/South Ogden/Washington Terrace has some character but is historically known as the crime capitol of Utah (Al Capone stopped here on the train west to California and didn’t stay long because Ogden was "too rough" for him). It is getting better because of some city initiative to improve neighborhoods, but it’s not an area you want to move to without some careful investigation first. I just sold my home in Roy because I HATED it there. The neighborhoods are run down compared to other cities on this list, it’s not walkable AT ALL, there are a ton of sex offenders here, and there’s no community center with stuff to do on the weekends. The only thing to do in Roy is go to Burger Bar or leave. Hill AFB is a massive barrier between Weber County and the rest of the Wasatch Front, so if you get bored or want to visit Salt Lake it takes an eternity to get there.
I’ve lived in Utah my whole life and remember when it was a small state and people only visited Salt lake and saint george and now it sucks knowing that these Karens coming from cali are trying to ruin the small town feel
Lol here in Idaho the peeps moving from out of state are bringing there homeless with them…. lol that the chepest…. follow the money…
All these towns look great, especially since I’m from a dump called California
You pronounced Layton correctly!!!
I consider Myself a Puerto Ricahn because even if I was born in Puerto Rico
*I AM FROM UTAH*
Roy is part of the Ogden metro area, not Provo.
Nice to see and hear what’s life looks like in this part of US. Thanks for video. Best wishes from Serbia/Europe.
Waiting on Goldenwest Credit Union, and loosing all patience.
I ate at Roy’s Burger Bar just yesterday.
Roy is not part of the Orem metro area. Should have said Ogden.
I was born in Logan, Utah and I now live in Texas (Fort Worth). Why? Logan winters are most of the time COLD and SNOW.

8:16 How close do you drive to other cars?
I grew up in Utah, lived here all my life. Now these idiots of California are coming in and ruining this beautiful state. Please go somewhere else.
So many Mormons and I like to have sex I’m in college I would hate it.
Utah has never met a tax they don’t like, and there isn’t WATER!
It be nice if you wouldn’t broadcast this because most people from California are coming up and ruining our small cities driving at home prices ruining the environment !
You left out the Tooele, Grantsville, Stansbury Park area. 30-40 min from SLC.
Yeah this is already outdated. And you aren’t a radio announcer, just speak normally.
Great video here. You brought up a lot of great points. I’ve helped hundreds of people make the move here and a lot of what you mentioned is spot on with what to expect 👊🏽
Logan is amazing. Stay out so it stays that way.
Hit up sandy
Roy is NOT part of the Orem area, it’s part of the Ogden area. C’mon now
Ohh man Provo is terrible and UTAH sucks‼️(We UTAHNS need to pass around as much negativity add campaigns around about our state so we can slow down the mass immigration of people moving here from other states and making housing availability and expenses very very difficult, let’s scare people away from wanting to move here, we’re full‼️)🇺🇸🇺🇸🇳🇿
The worst thing about living anywhere in Utah other than salt lake city is that you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a member of the local entrenched cult, the latter day saints, mormons
How did none of the suburban cities of Salt Lake City make this list? West Jordan, South Jordan, Sandy, Draper, Murray, Taylorsville..
Too much prejudice in your vlogs.
I really wish someone would point out that the hyper inflation of the last few years has been to the advantage of the banks and the government. It pads the asset books of the banks and inflates away the debt of the great big spender politicians. The rest of us suffer from this. I bought my house in 1979 on an island in the NW near Seattle with a view of the mountains and the water for $44,500. It was $1,000 dollars down and payments of $270/month. Without exception, everyone told me it was the biggest mistake of my life! They said rents would always be cheap because of over building. I followed my own instincts.
Horrible rent costs 1900 bucks a month and the complex is a sh#$ hole. Should have done my homework
I seen some job offers pop up in Utah so I looked at zillow said nope
