Herriman, Utah offers rural living with a suburban flare; and, it has been discovered by those seeking a peaceful place to raise their families with access to all the frills of a metropolitan life. Today it is one of the fastest growing master planned communities in the state. Housing crisis? What housing crisis? Herriman homes, lots and building permits are selling like hotcakes.
On May 9, KSL.com Utah reporter Paul Nelson reported a housing boom in the Northern Utah city just 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake. This young, affluent and family-oriented community is home to more than 21,000 residents. City officials claim a build-out potential of 100,000. Building is exactly what property owners are doing.
Only 45 building permits were approved during Fiscal Year 2009. According to Nelson’s report there are 700 lots suitable for building in Herriman. The economy has picked up and officials expect 350 to 500 permits to sell during the next fiscal year.
During the recent housing slump, the city worked on its infrastructure to better accommodate future controlled growth. According to Herriman’s official city website, the city has plans to develop a “90-acre community college, improved accessibility with a new freeway and a vibrant towne center.”
Sperling’s Best Places, an online community research and comparison service, reports the median Herriman home is $243,900. Homes appreciated 3.6 percent last year.
With a healthy economy (and a location only minutes away from the nation’s most fiscally-fit city, Salt Lake) Herriman offers an ambiance like none other. Against the stunning Wasatch Mountain range, its pristine environment, large lots and access to thrilling outdoor adventure make it a favorite of young families.
