If you’re going to be spending extended time in Utah, then it’s a good bet you’ll be living in Salt Lake City. This is the largest city in the state and home to hundreds of thousands within its borders. Combined statistically with the neighboring cities of Provo and Orem, the metropolitan area is home to over a million souls, more than a third of the state’s population.
There are many single-family detached homes for sale or rent here scattered throughout many lovely neighborhoods. The city itself is bordered by huge lakes and snow-capped mountain ranges. However, these homes are not the only Salt Lake housing available for you to live in if you so desire.
The area also has a tremendous number of apartments available throughout the region. These range from studio units and single-bedroom models to double-bedroom and even three-bedroom options. As with most of the county, the two-bedroom models are the ones that are the most common to find and rent.
Condominiums and townhomes also exist. These are single-family homes, but they might share external walls with other units and have split arrangements regarding things like waste disposal and yard work or lawn care services.
A number of mobile home parks also surround the area for simple, affordable living, especially if you already have a home you can haul in and put down. Some extremists even enjoy living in a tiny home as a way of life.
Some who are truly enjoying their freedom even choose to live in extended stay places on a month to month basis. This is a popular choice for seasonal workers or those in the area on a contract or temporary basis for their work. If you are truly affluent enough, then of course you can just live in a hotel.
