With the recent economic crisis, choosing where to buy a home can be a daunting task. Where is the best employment, the best schools, or the best family environment? Where are the best cities to start over? The Provo-Orem area continually ranks high on leading polls as a best place to live. CNN continually places the Provo-Orem area as one of the top places to live because it “prides itself on its good schools and safe streets” and “it’s diverse, not to mention entrepreneurial”. MSN Real Estate has ranked Provo-Orem 2nd best place to start over based on its job prospects and local universities (Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University).
The Huffington Post recently posted an article reporting the Milken Institute’s annual report about the top ten economically performing cities of 2011. According to the report, the Provo-Orem area ranked 9th “as employment soared by 3.3 percent in the past year.” The technical industry of the Provo-Orem area has helped it to rise in the ranks economically. Business investment and employment rates are constantly increasing. In addition, the report stated that, “it’s no surprise that Provo ranked 15th in long-term job growth and ninth in long-term wage growth.”
If you are looking for a place to settle down with your new family or for an area to invest in real-estate, Provo-Orem could be the right place for you. With the consistently high rankings in nation-wide studies and polls, Provo-Orem is obviously well positioned for future success.
