We're Down With Draper!

We're Down With Draper! 

 

With Utah full of desirable places to live, each city sells itself as unique.  When you’re looking for houses for sale in the Salt Lake Valley there are a number of worthy places vying for your attention. Draper is one such city.  Questions that might be on your mind... 1) What does Draper offer that other places might not and 2) why should I look at Draper real estate?

The demographics of Draper show that 38% of its residents are in the age group 25-44 and are highly educated.  Bottom line, this city obviously appeals to the younger generations and the upwardly mobile professional. This tends to signify a buoyant job market. Unemployment in the Salt Lake Valley is well below the national US average and, thanks to a generally low cost of living, the area attracts operations centres of billion dollar corporations such as eBay’s main customer service centre, giving the future a bright outlook. This makes Draper a great place to find homes for sale with a view to raising a family. As well as low crime rates, this area also has an excellent record in education with many school districts achieving 98% graduation from high school compared to the US average of 80% and also a high number moving into higher education with renowned University of Utah on the doorstep.

Draper is not all about school and work. A host of recreational opportunities are within a few miles drive or even just a short hike away. Eight world class ski and winter sport resorts are all within an hour’s drive and the trail systems are amongst the best and most extensive in Utah. With one of the most gorgeous locations along the front of the Wasatch Mountains, you’ve got a healthy quality of life with sophisticated city living.  Draper real estate just might be one of the best places to invest in property.

Whether you are looking for a typical suburban subdivision, a quality townhouse or luxury real estate in a mountain setting with spectacular views, Draper has a real diversity in housing. The city promotes community living and wherever you chose to look for houses for sale, you’ll have access to 70 restaurants, 30 parks, a golf course and be able to be involved in Draper Days which include Healthy Draper, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Haunt, September Concert, and Christmas in the Heart of Draper. You might even enjoy the Draper Days Rodeo the most.

With prices in Draper pretty much holding their own despite the banking collapse, Draper houses for sale are above average cost for the Valley with a median price of $360,000 against a Salt Lake County average of $235,000 and total luxury real estate in the mountains having ample multi-million dollar estates.
