Herriman Utah Real Estate Market & Area Guide

Herriman is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. All of it is beautiful with stunning views of the Wasatch and Oquirrh mountain ranges, wide opened spaces and city leaders that recognize the exploding population requires a solid infrastructure, quality recreational opportunities and organization to maintain that hometown feeling with an increasingly urban flare.

Herriman’s population is young. The city attracts young families in search of a seriously wholesome (and active) environment. On April 1, 2010, the United States Census Bureau estimated Herriman’s population to be 21,768. On April 1, 2020 the Census Bureau estimated a population of 55,144. In just 10 years this city literally doubled. In 2019 Herriman residents’ median age was just 25.5 years. World Population Review (based on Census projections) estimates Herriman’s 2021 population will come in at 64,718.

The Census Bureau estimated the 2019 median household income to be $101,460.

The city maintains multiple parks, trails and supports activities that help keep residents engaged. Herriman features active arts, history, health, youth and community councils.

This city is known for its magnificent homes and beautiful surroundings. It is located in the southwest side of the Salt Lake Valley and is just 22 miles from the popular recreation area, Utah Lake.


A man named Henry Harriman was among the early settlers credited with settling the area in 1851. He and other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came to the area to establish a fort to protect other people in the area from a variety of ongoing threats. Harriman was accompanied by Thomas Jefferson Butterfield, John Jay Stocking, and Robert Cowan Petty.

Today a community garden grows where the fort once stood – perhaps a testament to the early settlers’ resolve to create a community that thrived in the harsh desert. All that’s left of Fort Herriman are two black locust trees that mark the original entrance. When Johnston’s Army moved into the Western territory, the fort was abandoned and residents continued to build their lives and homes around the original site of the safe haven.

The rural area thrived as a quiet farming community until 1999 when it was incorporated. Brett Wood and J. Lynn Crane were inspired to meet with neighbors on their own doorsteps to sell the concept of incorporation (and ask each one to sign a petition). Just one year earlier, the first subdivision named Rose Creek Estates was developed by Watt Homes. It seemed growth was inevitable. This was the first development for homes on less than one acre of land. As with any city, Herriman felt growing pains. Building standards, land surveys, cooperation with neighboring communities and other issues swirled around the city as it became a viable community with services and amenities fit for a city.


Herriman is known for its beautiful views, lovely homes and great recreation programs. It is also known to be a relatively safe city with low crime rates.
