Utah Neighborhood Data for Utah Moving Quotes and Utah Moving Companies

Weather:-Relocating here means moving to a climate that varies from dry, semi-arid to desert. Temperatures here tend to be extreme; summers are very hot and winters are incredibly cold. During these blasts of cold air in the mountains, the state experiences incredibly light and fluffy snow. (So make sure to pack your mittens because you’re going to want to build a snowman!)
Severe storms and tornadoes are rare, but they do happen here. Make sure to educate yourself and prepare your home for these potential disasters.
Population & Cost of Living:-Utah is currently home to about 2.901 million residents. Move here to add one to that number!
Home prices vary widely; the most historic and wealthy spots in Salt Lake City costing much more than smaller districts of Heber. However, the entire state is growing. With population increase, housing will be more in demand. A property purchased in 2014 will likely only continue to go up in value, no matter where you buy in the state. Currently the median price of a home of all of Utah? $199,000.
Good to note: Utah is the only state with a majority religion. Due to about 60% of the population being a part of the Mormon church (also known as the Church of Latter-Day Saints). you’ll notice much of the population refrains from swearing. Prepare, instead, to hear lots of exclamations of “Frack me!” and “What the heck!?”
This is also important to note because moving into a community that is centered around this church doesn’t just mean less swear words. It may provide a huge culture shock…especially if you came from somewhere like late night clubbing, martini-sipping NYC or LA!
