Price Peek: What $900,000 Buys You in Sandy Right Now

Coldwell Banker recently introduced Price Peek, a new blog series that explores real estate across Utah by examining different price points in select neighborhoods.

In last month’s installment, we sought out to find what kind of homes $600,000 affords us in beautiful Salt Lake City and needless to say, our findings did not disappoint. After doing a little real estate shopping of our own, we came across a sophisticated condo with epic views of downtown and the East Mountains, a bright and airy Sugar House home with old school charm and last but certainly not least, a newly designed East Millcreek home that proves perfection is in the details.

This month, we’re taking a short trip over to Sandy—the sixth largest city in Utah located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. Over the past few years, Sandy has evolved into the ultimate destination and place to reside with its mélange of attractions, including a thriving downtown area with easy access to shopping, fine dining, theater and museums, lively Real Salt Lake soccer games, annual Hot Air Balloon Festivals, scenic biking, jogging trails and more.

In addition to its impressive lineup of attractions, Sandy has also become a hot city for purchasing real estate, with a market that looks favorably upon homes priced both in the affordable and luxury ranges. The median home value in the city of Sandy has gone up 6.4{b0691beea1c2f39bd1c58efe4ba0816740a602e2685bc83cc0a70ecfa3fcdf10} over the past year and is expected to rise another 4.8{b0691beea1c2f39bd1c58efe4ba0816740a602e2685bc83cc0a70ecfa3fcdf10} within the coming year, according to the latest figures from Zillow, which currently place the median home value at around $267,000.

With this in mind, today we decided to explore the luxury side of things and set out to find the type of homes we could buy with a generous budget of $900,000 (or slightly under/over). Here’s what we found:
