For over a decade, Daybreak has been Salt Lake’s #1 place to buy a new home. The question is, why? What is it about Daybreak that makes it one of the best places to live in Utah? Ask five different people and you’ll probably get twelve different answers. But we think it all adds up to this: every facet of Daybreak has been thoughtfully considered and carefully crafted to make your day better. This attention to detail is what earned Daybreak the #5 spot on RCLCO’s Top-Selling Master Planned Communities Mid-Year report released earlier this month. Master Planned Communities like Daybreak have proven to be extremely popular with homebuyers this year owing to the many parks, trails, and other amenities that provide residents with the opportunity to get outside and engage in safe socially distanced recreation right in the neighborhood.
RCLCO Top-Selling Master Planned Communities Mid-Year
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 2020 mid-year report released earlier this month, ranks Daybreak at #5 in the nation and remains the best place to live in Utah ranking #1, based on total home sales for buying a new home.

And this isn’t Daybreak’s only recognition. In June 2019, the PCBC Gold Nuggets awarded Daybreak as the Master Planned Community of the Year and also gave merit honors to Daybreak’s SoDa Row district in the category of Best Mixed Use Development. Also in February 2019, the National Association of Home Builders named the Hub — the combination café, neighborhood pool and information center in Daybreak’s Upper Villages — as Best Sales/Information Center among entrants from across the U.S. and Canada.
Best Places to Live in Utah
Now in its 16th year, Daybreak has grown to encompass 8,000+ homes and is now home to over 25,000 people. For the first 6 months of 2020, Daybreak maintained a record-breaking pace, selling 507 homes, an increase of 40% compared to the same time last year. By comparison to the other communities listed in the ranking reports (California, Florida, Nevada, etc.) the Salt Lake City housing market is much smaller. So, it’s notable that a community like Daybreak can achieve sales volumes that are comparable to other master plans located in much larger population centers.
Get to Know Daybreak
lthough it’s one large community, Daybreak includes 12 smaller neighborhoods or villages within it that each cater to different lifestyles and life stages. This has created a place with a mix of architectural styles, and a wonderful mix of people who live here. It is also why Daybreak continues to be Salt Lake’s #1 place to buy a new home and a favorite spot for families relocating to Salt Lake City.
