The local market is simmering- St George is still an untapped vein or mecca for the same kind of desert populations that have been exploding south of us in Arizona. Only we have many magazines coming out to reveal us as the safest place, as the best place to retire, etc. It is only a matter of time. Some projections say that the St. George area will double within 5 to 10 years. That is staggering growth. When you drive into a new subdivision there is literally a beehive of action, even still. Every contractor is overloaded with work. Just about every company has had to hire new employees to keep up.
