Buy a Home in One of Our Winning Olympic Cities

Salt Lake City
Utah broker Sandy Straley of SunView Homes believes the 2002 Winter Games helped Salt Lake City weather the Great Recession by bringing in lots of winter-sports tourism.

"Salt Lake City hasn't been hurt as much as other big Western cities like Los Angeles or Seattle because we have such a great recreational economy," she says. "All of that skiing and skating helps us."

Straley adds that many of Salt Lake City's 2002 venues remain today, from the Kearns Ice Oval to the Olympic flame that still burns outside the University of Utah stadium that hosted opening and closing ceremonies.

Salt Lake City uses the sites for lots of winter-sports competitions, and has also opened up the speed-skating and ski-jump facilities for public use, she says.

"That's pretty neat," Straley says.

Realtor.com found that median Salt Lake City asking prices rose 8.2% over the past year to reach $210,000.
