  • It really just depends on if you live closer to a main city or further away. I live about 20 minutes from Salt Lake City and a 2 bedroom apartment right now would be about $700 to $800 a month. I am sure you could find a cheaper one in a rougher area. Go to and search the adds there. Good Luck!!!

  • Make sure you research everything! Yes, the cost of living is cheaper. But wages are also a bit lower. Not by much, to be sure...the minimum wage is just 75 cents an hour less.

    Check out a cost of living calculator so you know what to expect. And research average pay for jobs there.
