Tell Me About Buying a New Home in Tooele County Utah

Buy new home construction in Tooele County

I hear “tell me about buying a new home in Tooele County Utah“.quite a bit. I think it has to do with a lack of housing inventory in the county. Rather than engaging in waiting and waiting & waiting some more for the right home to show up on the market, potential buyers are beginning to look at new construction as an option.

And, these home buyers might be on to something.

New construction inventory in the county is way up and in some market areas out here is greater than resales. Take a look at some of these numbers around Tooele County.
