How do rentals in Bountiful compare with rentals in Park City?

April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Although the cities of Bountiful and Park City, Utah are separated by 40 miles and 50 minutes of traveling time, Bountiful/Park City apartments have something in common: by their choice of residence, its denizens have expressed an affinity for living just within a stone’s throw of mountainous, forested terrain.

Park City, a ski resort town that experiences a yearly peak in tourism every January when Hollywood converges upon it for the Sundance Film Festival, and again every August for the yearly Park City Arts Festival, has an estimated population of just over 8,000. Bountiful, on the other hand, serves as a bedroom community to Salt Lake City and is home to around 40,000 residents. In terms of population, Park City and Bountiful couldn’t be more different. However, their commonality is brought back into line again in their shared reputation of being two of the most desirable places to live in Northern Utah. The fact that each city boasts an attractive Main Street line with independently owned shops only serves to solidify that kinship.

A look at online guides advertising rental opportunities in both areas shows that rent in Park City is substantially higher than that of Bountiful, but that’s something that can chalked up to name recognition (call it the Sundance effect). Either way you slice it, renters in these respective cities reap a similar reward: the satisfaction that comes from holding residence in one of Utah’s most appealing cities.
