Salt Lake City Neighborhoods
"Salt Lake City has many ‘informal’ neighborhoods that have popular definitions rather than legal definitions. So have fun, keep an open mind, and enjoy the neighborhood descriptions we’ve put together for the Salt Lake real estate market."
Downtown is an eclectic mix of turn-of-the century homes, condos, and urban lofts. The downtown area offers an unparalleled music and arts culture, excellent dining opportunities, entertainment, and public transportation.

If you like culture, you’ll love the Avenues. The Avenues are located on a large, sweeping hillside overlooking downtown and the entire Salt Lake valley. The home styles and architecture are the most diverse in all of Salt Lake City, including Queen Anne Victorian, federal style, ranch, bungalow, modern, and brand new. This area sells at a premium and varies greatly in price from one part of the Avenues to another. You’ll find many small, local neighborhood shops along with many university and academia types. Even though it is spendy it is, by and large, a more earthy crunchy area than a showcase for glamorous lifestyles. It’s diversity does embrace the many lifestyles and incomes which are so uniquely ‘The Avenues.’ Expect to also find numerous apartments and condominiums in the area, as it is convenient to both downtown and the University of Utah.

Often mis-spelled ‘Sugarhouse,’ this is a very popular area for somewhat-urban first and second-time home buyers. The area was once known for, and is today again, a neighborhood business area with parks, locally owned businesses, and a few bigger stores like Barnes & Noble or Nordstrom Rack. Sugar House offers plenty of diversity in lifestyles and real estate architecture, but is known most for the classic bungalow and arts-and-crafts bungalows. This is the area of Salt Lake where one can discover the first conformities in style with rows of bungalows. Sugar House embraces many income levels, with prices of homes generally going up as you travel eastward. View all Sugarhouse condos and homes for sale
Liberty Park is an excellent urban playground for many first time home buyers, and offers the best pricing for urban dwellers that prefer to live in residential neighborhoods instead of downtown. The area is informally named after the city’s most popular park which includes an aviary, amusement park, tennis, swimming, a running track, pavilions, playgrounds and more. Most of the homes in this area are pre-1950, including some excellent examples of quaint bungalows, small to sprawling Victorians, and a few great examples of federal style homes. And it’s all within 5 minutes of downtown Salt Lake City and the University of Utah. View all Liberty Park homes and condos for sale
