Utah Housing

Living close to an apartment complex is good for the property value of single family homes, according to a report by economists at the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute. 

According to the Out of Reach 2021 report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, you need to earn at least $20.21 an hour to afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment or home in Utah. 

Utah’s housing market is already extremely tight, but an extra complication for home builders is the shortage of materials — particularly copper used for wiring.

A new report indicates the cost of housing in Utah is increasing at a faster rate than wages for low income households.

A study by the National Low Income Housing Coalition released Wednesday shows people earning minimum wage would need to work 98 hours per week to be able to afford a two-bedroom apartment at fair market rent in the state.
