Community of Alpine Utah
Alpine is one of the more popular zip codes in Utah. Real estate is expensive and the homes are well maintained and beautiful. The community has a high level of white collar workers, with a much higher percentage of adults with college educations than most other cities in the state.
Alpine is a small city with an estimated 10,235 residents and is tucked into the Wasatch Front on the Utah County side. With gorgeous tall mountains rising on two sides, Alpine has spectacular views and many outdoor opportunities. Being tucked away like it is, Alpine is a bedroom community that has been able to maintain a small town feel while taking advantage of all the amenities adjacent cities offer.
Considering Alpine’s beautiful location, this is an extremely popular community to live in.
Because Alpine is hemmed in by mountains on two sides, there’s not a lot of room to sprawl, so buildable land is at a premium.
In the city center you can find beautifully maintained cottages and smaller homes and the further out you go the bigger and more impressive the homes get. Although the overall prices are higher than the average home in Utah there is still a great range in home size and prices in Alpine, with well established neighborhoods and a few newer neighborhoods as well. The average home price in Alpine is $534,600 as compared to the average across the United States of $185,800.
