Utah Ranked #1 

October, 2008

Utah is ranked #1 four times by four different organizations within the past 12 months. Forbes ranked Salt Lake City as the best house hunter bargain in the country last February. Factors for this high ranking included low foreclosures, upward job growth, high inventory and Utah home owner's willingness to negotiate the sale of real estate.

The Beacon Hill Institute of Boston, ranked Utah the most economic competitive state in the nation. The criteria for this evaluation included Utah's fiscal policy, security, infrastructure, human resources, technology, business incubation and openness.

The American Legislative Exchange Council ranked Utah number 1 for economic outlook within the entire nation back in December, 2007. This forecast gauged Utah's economic future on criteria such as security, infrastructure, business incubation, fiscal policy, minimum wage, tax policy and education.

The Milken Institute ranked Provo-Orem #1 in the county for job creation, retention and economic growth.  The report was released September 10, 2008. Salt Lake City is ranked #3 and Ogden-Clearfield is ranked #18. St. George, Utah is ranked #4 among small metropolitan areas.

Utah's high rankings  should bolster the real estate market throughout the Salt Lake valley. The economy is often a benchmark for the real estate market. Utah is in a good position for its housing industry and real estate sales to weather the current national economic storm.
