Salt Lake City is the capital city of Utah – a place filled with breath-taking scenery, the greatest snow on Earth and a unique history and people.
When people think of Utah they often think of the snow and the amazing ski terrain. The average snowfall in the mountains near Salt Lake City is 500 inches (over 40 feet!) – that is nearly five times the average snowfall of Juneau, Alaska. Yet despite the chilly winters, Salt Lake City experiences all four seasons of the year and also provides countless opportunities for summer activities. For example; Utah is home to the largest natural land bridge in the world – The Rainbow Arch inside Arches National Park. Hiking through Arches National Park and seeing all the rock formations is truly a magnificent sight.
The state hosts many unique activities throughout the year like the historic Sundance Film Festival that is held just east of Salt Lake in Park City. Residents and visitors of the city can also enjoy The Hogle Zoo, The Living Planet Aquarium, The Natural History Museum of Utah and much more.
While in Salt Lake one can also visit the various Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) buildings and monuments downtown such as Temple Square. Salt Lake City was first settled by the Mormon pioneers in 1847 and the church is still headquartered in the city. Just last year the LDS Church opened up a new mall downtown known as the City Creek Center. The unique shopping environment features over 100 retailers and restaurants, a retractable glass roof, a creek that runs through the property, a pedestrian skybridge and more.
Like many places in the country, Salt Lake City’s housing market has rebounded from the recession and is on the rise. The average sold price for single family residential homes during the 1st quarter of 2013 rose 13% when compared with 2012. The average number of days for a home to be on market in the 1st quarter of 2013 was 83. And the average list price for single family homes during the 1st quarter of 2013 was $285,094 – an increase of 11% from 2012.
