St George Relocation Information
A certain segment of the St George real estate buyers are now relocating from Northern Utah. While California and Las Vegas used to provide about a fourth of our buyer influx at the turn of the century, the majority of our buyer influx now comes from all over and the population is becoming increasingly diverse.
St George is known for its good old fashioned family values, and this more than anything is what attracts all kinds of people here. From the World Huntsman Senior Games to our St George Marathon, Iron Mans and Triathlons and much more- a spirit of service, cheerfulness and generosity pervades our special events and adds significantly to a strong sense of community.
All one has to do is take a drive out along Snow Canyon Parkway, out to Tuacahn where the red rock cliffs are the backdrop for the amphitheater plays, and you'll be hooked on the area.
We have over 12 golf courses in the local area helping provide a greenbelt against the red landscape. It is apparent that the city is run fiscally well and with developing infrastructure, noteworthy being the new St George Regional Airport which allows for larger commuter jets and commercial freight.
All of these factors have already put us “on the map” for popular destinations for relocation, if not a great place 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 estate values holding or appreciating.
Speaking of Washington County Utah, but more pervasively toward Ivins and Hurricane, the beauty lies not just in the variety of terrain, but in the color. You can range from black lava rock, soils that are red and white, to rock and cliffs that feature a variation of those colors. There is a variation of red or sandstone colors that predominate. Combine that with a sunset and you have some views that are literally breathtaking. Many visual and recreational delights abound throughout Southern Utah.
