RealtyTrac.com recently ranked Utah #4 in the top housing markets for good health (based on lifestyle) and building real estate wealth! “While families have many good options across the country in terms of places where healthy living is evident and the prospect of appreciating home prices is solid, there are some markets that clearly stand head and shoulders above the rest,” said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. “The markets considered for the Health and Wealth list all have strong appreciation potential. Some are healthier than others. This report not only features those top markets for appreciation but also highlights important health- and wealth-related factors for families to research in any market before they make the decision to buy a home.”
