Relocating to Salt Lake City? A Handy Guide to Help You Find Your Ideal Home and Neighborhood

Relocating to a new city can be stressful, but our neighborhood specialists at Niche Homes will smooth the way as you search for your new home.

It all starts with you! We begin with a consultation where our only intention is to get to know you. What’s important to you in terms of where you’re going to live? Do you need to be close to the downtown area, or would you like something closer to our beautiful canyons? Do you have a family? You can see where this is going . . . we take the time to get to really identify the needs of our clients’ daily lives. From there, we can recommend neighborhoods and communities that will suit you best. 

Get a Lay of the Land

To get you started, we’ve identified a few of Salt Lake’s best neighborhood communities. They all offer something different, so taking your time and eliminating areas that you have no interest in will help immensely.

Elephant in the City

Chances are you’ve probably heard rumblings about some of Salt Lake’s stranger quirks: funny liquor laws, a storied Mormon past (and present, depending on who you ask), earthquakes, and some of the worst air pollution in the nation. You name it, we’ve not only heard it, but we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. We even started a series on our blog where we explore some of these serious (and funny) concerns. Find those features here.

Let’s Talk Numbers

Now that you’ve narrowed your search, the next step is to convert your hopes and dreams into quantitative numbers. At this point, we’ll work together with a team of lenders to come up with your best possible financial solution. Our preferred lenders are known for their low rates and financing options. We are here to advise and make this leg of the journey as painless as possible so we can move on to the good part . . .

Finding Your Perfect Home

Finding your perfect space is equal parts art and science. On our end, it’s a matter of sorting and sifting through MLS listings, and more importantly discovering the unlisted property we pride ourselves in finding. Sometimes it feels like finding a needle in a haystack, but we relentlessly use all our personal and professional resources to find and secure your ideal property.

Negotiations and Closing

Our experience has made us experts at problem-solving and putting out last-minute fires. Our attention to detail and grit keeps negotiation, closing-cost stress and fees at a minimum. You can trust us to advocate for you, mitigate stress, and do what we need to do to keep you in or get you out of a contract.

You’re Going to Love it Here!

But don’t just take our word for it . . .  we interviewed five Salt Lake City transplants to see what their take is on living here. Watch the full video by clicking here. You’ll notice they have one thing in common — they all love the people, and the communities that they’ve chosen to live in.
