EDGEhomes Guide

Finding Your New Home in Utah

Homes provide structural foundation of safety and shelter, but there’s so much more that they can do. A perfect home is a quiet place to sleep, eat, relax, and spend time with family. And most importantly, a home is a place where you can truly live life and make long-lasting memories. EDGEhomes creates communities and builds homes in the most beautiful cities in Utah and Salt Lake County, giving you the chance to customize your dream home every step of the way.

Buying a home in a new state can be a bit scary. New surroundings, new people, and new cultural habits can be enough to intimidate even the bravest homebuyers. Lucky for you, Utah is a state with amazing surroundings, awesome people, and a welcoming culture. Utah is not only an environmentally striking place to live, but it’s also a fun and friendly home for newcomers from all walks of life.

Seasonal outdoor activities

Home to “the greatest snow on Earth,” Utah is well-known for its amazing outdoor recreation for seasoned skiers and casual hikers alike. In the winter, Utahns can easily access some of the best slopes and most amazing resorts in the world. When spring and summer roll around, Utah transforms into a diverse outdoor sports hub with beautiful hiking and biking trails and fresh water reservoirs and rivers throughout both Utah and Salt Lake Counties.

Entertainment

This might be surprising if you’re used to large cities, but Utah County and Salt Lake County are both brimming with amazing opportunities for fun and entertainment. Salt Lake County offers numerous world-class restaurants, and immersive events happen regularly at the Salt Palace Events Center. In Utah County, Thanksgiving Point offers entertainment opportunities for families, dates, and more, with one of the largest dinosaur museums in the world, as well as a golf course.

Shopping

If you’re a shopaholic, Salt Lake County and Utah County have all the shops you could ever need. At City Creek Shopping Center and Gateway Mall, Utahns can find national and local shops and conduct some serious high-end shopping. Utah County is just as exciting as Salt Lake County with University Mall and the shops, entertainment sites, and restaurants found at Traverse Mountain.

Education

Utah offers some of the best public and private schools in the nation. Top-notch instructors and curriculum are available across the state to all students. Utah universities including Brigham Young University, the University of Utah, Utah Valley University, and Utah State also offer incredible opportunities for older children and future scholars to achieve an excellent higher education.

Robust economy

One of Utah’s unique features is the opportunity for growth and progression. For years, Utah has grown as one of the top states for tech businesses and major global corporations. Why? Because Utah offers a safe environment, healthy economy, and low cost of living. Utah’s thriving job market offers endless opportunities for Utahns and those looking to move to Utah.

Why Build?

When you build with EDGEhomes, you are not locked into settling for a cookie-cutter floor plan that only provides part of what you want in your dream home. The whole point of building your own home is to get what you want, rather than taking what somebody else wanted and adapting it to fit your needs.

What Goes On Behind the Walls

However, one of the biggest issues people have when thinking about building a home is how it generally costs more to build from scratch than it does to buy a house that somebody has already built with their specifications. But there is a happy medium, and custom-building a home may be more affordable than you think.

EDGEhomes offers plenty of choices with guidelines to make your building process much easier and affordable. Unlike what you might find with a builder who has to work from scratch, EDGEhomes offers reasonable prices similar to what you might pay for a pre-built home. The price is never up in the air, because with us, you’ll know what you’ve agreed to up front.

What to Expect When Your Home is Built

It’s one thing to look at pictures of a “model home” to get an idea of how your home will look, but seeing your newly built home is completely different. It’s so satisfying to see your color palette, flooring, and paint in person—and it’s even better to finally move into your dream home.

Why Utah Communities Matter to EDGEhomes

Community Amenities

No matter your age, your community significantly impacts who you are and how you live your life. At EDGEhomes, we recognize that and build our homes specifically with communities in mind. From caring neighbors to unique layouts, our communities feature one-of-a-kind spaces that transform your neighborhood into the community of your dreams. 

Space for families

When you think of your dream neighborhood, what’s in it? If you’re like most parents, you probably want places for your kids to play and have fun. So whether you’re a parent thinking of your children or you’re young at heart, EDGEhomes has communities that fit your lifestyle. EDGEhomes communities may feature wide-open spaces, swimming pools, and even playgrounds that give you and your family the space you need to create memories.

Space for fitness

While it can be fun to stay in and watch movies, it’s important for everyone to work up a sweat every so often. Some EDGEhomes communities offer gyms with high-quality equipment and plenty of space to work out. Want to mix it up? Some of our favorite communities are also surrounded by bike paths and hiking trails that take your workout into the great outdoors.

Space for growth

Living in the present might generally be a healthy mindset, but it’s not necessarily the best way to find the perfect neighborhood. When you’re looking for a home, future plans should play a major part in your decision. Whether you’re adding to your family or need open space for your growing pets, each of our communities has the room you need for growth.

Space for home

The most important thing your future neighborhood needs is a sense of home and community—and EDGEhomes communities have both. Our team works with you to create a place that you can call home. Some of our communities have wonderful homeowner associations (HOA) that focus on your best interests so you can focus on what matters most—your family.

Explore the EDGEhomes communities to find your new dream home and neighborhood.

EDGEhomes Customer Service

One of the biggest hesitations surrounding homeownership is having to do all your own maintenance and home repair.

Some repairs are common sense, but others can be puzzling or time-consuming. After all, video tutorials can only take you so far. The great thing about selecting EDGEhomes is that you never have to solve a home maintenance problem completely on your own.

Before you close on your home, one of our customer service team members will give you a one-on-one orientation on how your home functions.

They’ll also walk you through any warranties and let you know what maintenance is your responsibility. That way, you’re educated and able to keep your home functioning smoothly. 

Our customer service team is standing by to address any concerns that may arise after you’ve purchased your home. If you need to report a warranted item for maintenance, all you have to do is fill out a quick form on the EDGEhomes website, and a customer service representative will be out to your home soon to address any issues.
