Utah Reaching Celebrity Status…

PricewaterhouseCoopers and Urban Land Institute recently released their 2018 Emerging Trends in Real Estate report and the Salt Lake City real estate market is the #3 market to watch in 2018.  This is obviously a very nice feather in the proverbial CRE hat of Utah.

You can find some of the highlights from that report and a link to the article below.   A few of the interesting points are as follows:

  • The SLC market ranked #3 on the list of US Markets to Watch in 2018.  This was based on a poll of 78 markets polling over 1,600 real estate experts.
  • SLC is the smallest real estate market to make the top 10 list
  • The SLC market ranked 1st for investment opportunity, as well as office and retail buy recommendations.
  • The SLC market ranked 2nd for multifamily buy recommendations.
  • Authors attributed SLC’s high rankings in part to the market’s large millennial population, amount of real estate investment, strong economy, growing tech sector, and cost to do business.
  • Concerning development opportunity, the SLC market ranked 10th citing lower investor demand and the ability to secure capital for investment and development as more difficult than in other markets.
