A part of the rapidly expanding southwest region, Riverton’s population of 42,838 throughout five neighborhoods translates to the 17th-largest city in Utah. Roughly 20 miles from Salt Lake City, it shares borders with Herriman to the west, South Jordan to the north, Draper to the east, and Bluffdale to the south. It represents a robust 89.4% homeownership rate.
While Riverton’s blossoming population has introduced immaculate modern housing, it has a rich selection of distinct, older homes from which to choose as well. 51.1% of homes were built between 1970-1999, with 42% built after 2000. 89.8% of homes are single-family, with 5.5% being townhomes. Riverton proudly maintains over thirty parks, featuring spacious play areas, ball fields, splash pads, and is also home to the gorgeous Riverbend Golf Course. Commercial areas are located on the western side of the city along Highway 154, but the city has an exciting development in the works - Mountain View Village will soon be an 85-acre central gathering place for residents of Riverton and surrounding communities. The invigorating project will consist of shops, dining establishments, office space, a hotel, gym, and a luxurious cinema. Locals, and the local economy, are beyond excited!
A healthy selection of quality schools is available to Riverton families. Children may attend Riverton Elementary, Oquirrh Hills and South Hills Middle Schools, and Riverton High School. Additional options are Saint Andrew Catholic School, Paradigm Charter School, and Montessori at Riverton.
Riverton is a popular city for Utah’s larger families, as 41% of homes offer 5+ bedrooms and 4+ baths – though attaining 4 and even 3 beds are certainly feasible. Home sales range from $150,000 - $600,000, with an average price of $360,000. Even with such magnificent neighborhoods, less than 1% of home sales were over $1,000,000.
