Living through 2021 (which has felt more like 2020 part two) has been a wild ride. A persistent pandemic, rising gas prices, inflation — there’s been plenty to be anxious about. This is especially true if you’re trying to buy a home. Few places in the country have been as competitive in their real estate as Utah in 2021, and it’s looking like that trend will continue in 2022.
Realtor.com recently named the Salt Lake City region as the expected No. 1 housing market in the nation for 2022. They also anticipate prices to grow 8.5% and sales to grow 15.2%. This would place Salt Lake City, and much of the rest of the state, ahead of other booming markets like Boise, ID, Spokane, WA and Indianapolis, IN.
