Realtor.com says that Salt Lake City is a mecca for millennials. Ranking No. 2 in the Top Cities for Millennials, Salt Lake City offers millennial home buyers an option away from the bright lights of big city life they would find in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles. Salt Lake City and its surrounding suburbs offer millennial home buyers an option to plant their roots where home prices are still budget friendly, but the job market is strong across a variety of sectors.
