Utah: Fastest Growing State in the Nation

Are you considering buying or selling a home in Utah?  It's always good to know whether you are dealing with an expanding or contracting market as this may impact decisions you make in regards to buying or selling real estate.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Utah just surpassed North Dakota to become the fastest growing state.  Estimates released today show that Utah's population increased 2.03% from July 2015 to July 2016.  Utah's population is now estimated at 3,051,217.

The fastest growing states after Utah are Nevada, Idaho, Florida and Washington. Eight states lost population including Pennsylvania, New York and Wyoming.

Overall, the U.S. population grew by 0.7% to 323.1 million.

This is another positive sign pointing toward Utah being an attractive place to call home.
