Now is the time to buy a house in Tooele County UT. Particularly if you are looking to save money.

Year after year, the value of real estate in the Tooele Valley continues to sway smart investors & small town wanabees to make their move.

As traffic congestion along the Wasatch Front increases the home to work drive time factor becomes less pronounced. Heck, we just sold a home to a young lady that works in downtown SLC and discovered that driving to a new home in Tooele City took less time to drive than her previous Draper commute.. Here are some estimated drive times from Stansbury Park to various places in the Valley….


  •  Drive time to Airport…………….19 Minutes
  • Drive Time to University          38
  • To L.D.S Hospital                       37
  • Minutes to State Capital          30


She saved at least $40,000 compared to a similar new construction house she was looking at in Salt Lake County.  Want to prove how you could save? Compare these new home listing among our cities with listings for new construction in cities around SLC.

Rural Lifestyle

And then there are all the advantages of the rural lifestyle. Even though out here in Tooele we’re only 30 freeway minutes from the State Capital and cultural center of our state we still boast the small town atmosphere found in local parades, local rodeos (where you know the cowgirls) and special community activities where you can stay in touch with your neighbors.

A more tangible benefit of being categorized “rural” is that it allows homes and condos to be eligible for no money down mortgages. That 100% loan program is part of the USDA Rural Housing Loan program that still considers the entire county eligible.
