As one of the most populated cities in Utah, Sandy has found itself growing by leaps and bounds over the past decade. Now considered one of the top cities in the state, Sandy appears poised for even more growth. As more and more families discover what Sandy has to offer, it has become a key commercial center in the state and has thus made significant strides in the services, schools, and shopping opportunities it offers.
With more people than ever moving to Sandy, its real estate market has become quite strong. Numerous single-family homes are available at reasonable prices, with the median price for a Sandy home being $296,000. Because of the excellent housing prices, various neighborhoods in the city have had more growth than expected. However, by having a young, family-oriented population as its base, the idea of Sandy being a bedroom community has fallen by the wayside.
The city's school system features many of the state's premier public schools. Elementary schools such as East Sandy, Lone Peak, and Willow Canyon have all been recognized for excellent educational practices, and local high schools are known for having some of the state's best athletes. In fact, the school system has had such positive growth that it now has more and more students signing up for classes.
Along with all this, numerous amenities and entertainment options are available. For sports fans, one of the most exciting has been the pro soccer team Real Salt Lake City. A success year after year, the possibilities would seem to be boundless. With so many families flocking to Sandy, numerous local shops and restaurants have become the trendy places to families to spend quality time together. Food trucks have also become popular in Sandy, adding even more diversity to the economic mix.
With so much growth happening so fast, Sandy has finally become the bedroom community many thought it would. However, it has still sustained enough growth to become a mover and shaker within the state, resulting in excellent population growth. In the years to follow, it's expected Sandy will reap even more benefits.
