Welcome to your one stop source for St George Utah real estate and information for the St George Utah area and for Southern Utah!
St George Real Estate - Steady State!
The St George area holds quite an illustrious charm all its own. In courting buyers, all I have to do is take them on a drive out along Snow Canyon Parkway, out to Tuacahn where the red rocks are the backdrop for the ampitheater plays, and their hooked on the area.
Real estate values rose, ever so slighltly over this last year. Interest rates have held in the lower figures. Inventory levels of homes on the market have risen to about 15% more residential listings in the Greater St George area- see August 2014 blog post.
The average time on the market is about the same as last year at about 3 and a half months. Very few distressed sales dot the landscape. As such, more and more opportunities in the regular resale market abound. All this represents a fairly steady state for buying and selling.
Second home owners and retirees still call asking about the area, sometimes speculating as early as 5 years out from retirement. Home values have gained some ground in price appreciation over the last couple of years. See more info on our historical real estate trends if you like.
St George Attracts Business
Christopher Conabee, Managing Director of Corporate Recruitment and Business Services for Utah, visited St George in July of 2012 and reported that business recruiting to the entire state has been phenomenal in comparison with the rest of the nation, that commercial developers were active in our state. He reported that the due diligence required by bigger companies, before settling to the area is significantly reduced by a precedence of former companies that have landed here in the very recent past. This bodes well for Utah’s future, to include the local area, inciting key companies that had relocated here.
Let's not forget the new St George Regional airport which many economic advisors have reported as being capable of giving the commercial sector and business a "shot in the arm" for our local area. Utah, in general, is already reported as one of the nation’s leading best places for business and economic growth.
Relocating to Saint George Utah
A certain segment of the St George real estate buyers are now relocating from Northern Utah. California and Las Vegas used to be about a fourth of our buyer influx, but now they come from all over.
The area is know for its unique culture, tourism, friendly people, low taxes, safe neighborhoods, warmer weather, the
allure of the high desert rock and the national park-like red landscape, and good family, school, and retirement resources. Many people comment on how the drier climate really does aid
We have over 11 golf courses in the local area helping provide a greenbelt against the red landscape. It is apparent that the city is run well with developing infrastructure, noteworthy being the new St George Municipal airport which allows for larger commuter jets.
All of these factors have already put us “on the map” for popular destinations for relocation, both on a personal level and for business. Being a popular and growing second home owner and retirement destination, further makes it more likely that one cannot go wrong with their real esate real estate values holding or appreciating.
