What city has the cheapest house on the block? Before we answer that let's talk about why you saving money is a noble and cardinal goal. It's important to identify this so that you know what efforts you should take to get a home at an average of $260,000 well below the $502,647 Utah average home price.
Funding Your Passion Projects:
Have you always dreamed of starting a collection of garden gnomes shaped like famous philosophers? Well, this city's budget-friendly real estate market can make that dream a reality. Save money on your home, and invest in your passion projects without breaking the bank. Just a hint the gnomes are going to fit into this area's love of concrete sculptures.
Preparing for the Apocalypse:
While we can't predict the future, we can certainly be prepared for it. By choosing an affordable home in this part of the state, you're freeing up funds to stock up on canned goods, build a bunker, and invest in necessary survival gear. If you are used to bustling streets know that this city houses about 10,000 people so don't get confused when you come out of your bunker and see emptier streets than you are used to. It's not the rapture the city just started smaller, however, when the great apocalypse does come you'll be thanking yourself for being financially savvy.
Purchasing a home in this city is going to free up a lot of cash for travel. You can finally go see Mt. Rushmore, the Alamo, or even that biggest ball of twine (It's located in Darwin Minnesota). I included more domestic travel because your new home won't be too near to an international airport, but if you like to brag about leaving the state it will help that this city is near the Utah-Colorado border.
Have you guessed the city from the clues sprinkled throughout this article? If you guessed Vernal, then you get the prize. Relocate to Vernal for the cheapest average home in Utah. Known for its dinosaur fossils, natural gas production, and abundance of outdoor recreation Vernal is about halfway between Salt Lake City and Aspen and could be the new home of you and your gnome philosopher family.
