Record Home Sales for Daybreak

Entering its 17th year, Daybreak remains the one of the best places to live in Utah and is frequently selected by people moving to Utah from out-of-state.

2020 was the year to pivot, relearn long division, embrace virtual communication and to buy a new home. It was also the year that many of us stopped to reexamine our priorities and realized how much our community shapes our lives, even if we can’t always see our friends and family in person on a regular basis.

The impacts of a global pandemic mixed with historically low interest rates motivated a lot of people to buy their first home, buy a new home that worked better for their new normal or relocate to a new state. In fact, Daybreak homebuilders sold 1,055 new homes in 2020 shattering previous records for any community in Utah. Historically high demand for new homes increased Daybreak home sales by 40% from the previous year and once again earned the community the honor of being one of the best places to live in Utah.

Walkability and the 5-minute rule:

Every home in Daybreak is located within a 5-minute walk of some kind of amenity whether it’s the lake, a park, a pool, or a neighborhood cafe.

Urban Vibe:

Even if you’re more of a backyard and white picket fence kind of person, those who live here enjoy Daybreak’s urban vibe with restaurants, shops, and light rail stations located right in the neighborhood. That vibe is getting kicked up a notch with the emergence of Downtown Daybreak located in the heart of the community.  

Real Community:

Daybreak has it’s own non-profit organization called LiveDAYBREAK that exists to help residents connect with one another through a variety of events, activities and other functions. These connections become long term friendships for many who are now living in their 2nd, 3rd or even 4th home in Daybreak.

Daybreak Communities is dedicated to the art and science of placemaking. The core team was originally brought together to develop Daybreak in the Salt Lake Valley. The result: a national model of sustainable mixed-use development, which is well into its second decade of market-leading growth and sales. Now Daybreak Communities is expanding its reach, bringing its unique approach to the rest of Utah and the Mountain States region. Ours is a holistic viewpoint. A hypersensitivity to context. A careful consideration of every factor. Above all, we believe in the transformative power of design to create exceptional value for all stakeholders — property owners who care about their legacy, investors and development partners committed to making great places, and communities looking to grow in healthy new ways.
