Want to move to Midvale? It’s a good choice in the Salt Lake area cause it’s cheaper than Salt Lake City proper, but has just as nice scenery in terms of the outdoors. If you want to rent an apartment in Midvale, bring all your paperwork with you – ID, proof of employment, bank statements, tax returns, letters of reference and anything your specific broker requests. That way when you see what you love, you can apply right away! Nothing hurts worse than losing out on an apartment you really love. If you’re planning to rent, too, you’ll need cash up front – two months rent (at least), a security deposit and also any fees or moving expenses you will need to cover.
Renting is just as popular in Midvale as buying is – so you’re in luck. Even though the vacancy is pretty low at 7 percent, there ARE rentals, which means if you can find one you like, you can find somewhere to rent. Rent is pretty cheap here – about $500 per month for a studio apartment. You won’t pay more than about $1,200 to rent a four bedroom house, so don’t worry about shelling out big city cash.
Old Town: This is the historic and idyllic part of Midvale. It’s where they film the movies and where the old fashioned looking town still exists. It’s the most desirable area in the town.
Bingham Junction: This is where the train station is in Midvale and it's also on the eastern border of the city touching Cottonwood Heights. Around here is pretty residential – but it’s also home to Walmart!
Living in Midvale feels a lot like how it looks in movies – old-fashioned, and suburban. You can relax when you come here, and life of a high-quality comes at a low price. You’re right near Salt Lake City, which is one of the West’s nicest cities. In Salt Lake City you can eat, drink at bars, dance and take in museums and historic attractions. You can also ski and hike in the parks in the warmer months, so this city really does have something for everybody.
Midvale has its fair share of parks, too, as well as the Midvale Museum to learn about the area’s history and culture, as well as the ski corridor. You can use Midvale as your base camp to ski the whole area – you have easy access to four world-class ski resorts just minutes away. There is a bus system that will even shuttle you back and forth from skiing.
So this all sounds great – especially the Salt Lake City part – but how do you get around? You can take the Blue Line from Salt Lake City straight to Midvale (on the Trax Light Rail System) – so technically, you don’t need a car to get around. Things are spread out in the west, though, and things are pretty sprawling and mountainous, so it’s not the nicest terrain for a leisurely stroll. In other words, get a car. You’ll appreciate it.
