St George Utah Retirement Communities

stgeorge55older_000.jpg

St George Utah has been rated as one of the best places to retire in the nation by Kiplinger's.

Considered one of the nation's finest retirement areas, there are communities and developments built up to accommodate retiree, some exclusively 55+ and some not. The area offers clean air, a low crime rate, milder winters and a wonderful spirit of community.

Located centrally in the west, the area has drawn a mixture of populations, but with a very strong presence involving retiree's and second home owners. Many homes are second homes. The population of St George is about 75,000 people.

Four Classifications of Adult Communities

The adult communities can be classified here in three to four groups or property types.

Click here for the four types to unfold.
  1. First, probably the major share of the group involves mostly smaller patio home or condo/townhouse type dwellings with some shared side yards, a possible club house and one or two scheduled type of activities. The amenities and activities are minimal. A lot of retirees might be social with neighbors, but otherwise are fairly independent in their comings and goings, whether to travel or visit as a second home. A lot of these are snowbirds, but do not have to be, they can be full time residents.
  2. Second, there is only one fully featured 55+ community that has all the amenities, set in its own setting with views and a wealth of activities to go with it.  It is a single family development, but as we would say a Planned Unit Development (PUD). Other single-family 55+ PUD's exist, but they are smaller in numbers and really do fit more of the first property type because they often look identical to the smaller patio homes/condos and match the limited amenities.
  3. Third, you have your park models, modular, manufactured or RV adult 55+ communities.
  4. Fourth, are "retirement like" communities that while, are not exclusive 55+ adult communities still contain a higher percentage of predominant older adult population base. We bring Brian's expertise to the table in selecting those areas that might have a more predominant older adult population. These are conducive toward or lend themselves toward, older active adults lifestyles or the setting has more of a clean yard, lower landscape maintenance and sameness feel throughout. (Brian did eliminate areas that might have worked, but were older homes, thus most lending themselves to higher maintenance.) Feel free to contact Brian for more information about these developments, known only by experience. Some of these can feature some more upscale amenities, including St George's finest golf courses. While, still not featuring all the activities of say, a SunRiver, some of these developments capture some great views as well, which can sometimes be a draw for some retirees.

How Being Represented Works

Representation in Active Adult & 55+ Communities

Have you ever tried to put together a new item without the instructions and then eventually you realize, only after it is too late, that it really would have saved you a lot, by just first following the instructions? Well, that is a lot like representation. If you don't introduce your Realtor, which costs you NOTHING extra in these developments, when you first start talking to them, then you will have gone down another road that equals sometimes disaster. Remember, the seller always pays the commissions for both sides at closing. It is like a free insurance policy and most people do not even realize that it is fully and completely a free luxury- so why not have it!? It is the same case for resale homes- see Realtor Commissions.

One thing is that it covers...

... your agent. They are going to be working for you already by showing lots of resales, all 55+ conducive housing. By also having your agent help you in the 55+ exclusive areas (like Sun River), your making sure to guarantee all their extra time helping you in other areas. Most Realtors limit showings to 2-3 homes until they can see a way of possibly being paid without other things getting in the way of that. Once they know you are covering them in the resale market of ALL developments and most new developments, then they are left to show you as many houses you can handle seeing.
