What's Happening

In 2020, Daybreak home sales soared with a 40% increase compared to the previous year. Entering its 17th year, Daybreak remains one of the best places to live in Utah and is frequently selected by people moving to Utah from out-of-state.

2020 was the year to pivot, relearn long division, embrace virtual communication and to buy a new home. It was also the year that many of us stopped to reexamine our priorities and realized how much our community shapes our lives, even if we can’t always see our friends and family in person on a regular basis.

Impacts of a global pandemic mixed with historically low interest rates motivated a lot of people to buy their first home, buy a new home that worked better for their new normal or relocate to a new state. In fact, Daybreak homebuilders sold 1,055 new homes in 2020 shattering previous records for any community in Utah. Historically high demand for new homes increased Daybreak home sales by 40% from the previous year and once again earned the community the honor of being one of the best places to live in Utah.

According to two separate reports released this month, RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting, Daybreak continues to rank as one of the top-selling master planned communities in the United States.

Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities

RCLCO, a real estate advisory firm, has conducted a national survey identifying the top-selling master planned communities since 1994. Since the community was established in 2004, Daybreak has ranked in the Top 20 communities in the survey multiple times.  The Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities report, released earlier this month, ranks Daybreak at #5 in the nation and #1 in Utah, based on total home sales.

Urban Vibe:

Even if you’re more of a backyard and white picket fence kind of person, those who live here enjoy Daybreak’s urban vibe with restaurants, shops, and light rail stations located right in the neighborhood. That vibe is getting kicked up a notch with the emergence of Downtown Daybreak located in the heart of the community.
