Utah land is in abundance. The state spans nearly 85,000 miles, but is home to just 2.9 million residents as of 2013. The state is seeing a slow growth in population with 2010 - 2013 statistics showing a 5 percent increase, or roughly 140,000 new residents were added. This is a unique opportunity as Utah provides a multitude of geographical diversity.
A very unique reason to buy property in Utah is its abundance of minerals. Unlike other states, Utah often boasts including mineral rights with the sale of land. With a diverse landscape, many of these lands have the potential to produce valuable minerals to the owner. This would allow for unforeseen profits to be made if minerals of value were found.
Taxes in the state, especially in more rural areas, are very low, adding to the appeal of investors. It is not uncommon for many properties, especially in the western region, to only have dirt road access.
