Finding an affordable place to live in Utah is not always an easy task. While housing prices continue to rebound and general goods and services continue to rise, it feels like affordable living could be a thing of the past. Luckily, there are still some cities in Utah that qualify as affordable. Using science and data, AreaVibes has compiled a list of the most affordable places to live in Utah. These cities have the lowest cost of living in all of Utah.

Listed above are the most affordable places to live in Utah with a population of more than 5,000 people. To calculate the most affordable cities in Utah, the cost of living index for each city was calculated, then compared to the national average of 100. The cost of living index takes into account the following categories: goods and services, groceries, health care, housing, transportation and utilities.

To customize your list of affordable places to live in Utah, you can adjust the filters to meet your needs. This will allow you to select the city size (population) as well as what other categories (amenities, crime, education, employment, housing and weather) might be important to you. Finally, you are also able to select your home or rental price range to ensure that the cities on your list fit your budget.
