The WCBR Market Summary for May 2018 indicates our absorption rate is just over 3.1 months. In other words, if no new listings were taken and placed on the Washington County Board of Realtors MLS system – our inventory would be depleted within approximately 3 months.

St. George Utah open houses

Southern Utah Open House Directory: Saturday, February 25, 2017

 Good Morning St. George, here’s your Southern Utah Open House Directory.

It’s Saturday, February 25… the second to last day of the St. George area Parade of Homes, and according to the Washington County Board of Realtors FlexMLS system, there are 9 St. George Utah Open Houses scheduled for today.

With a currently diminished inventory of 536 St. George, Utah single-family residential listings for sale between $169K and $3.9 million, Southern Utah’s inventory coincides with data provided by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). According to NAR’s chief economist Lawrence Yun, despite January’s existing home sales increasing dramatically, “Market challenges remain.” primarily based on inadequate inventory levels that are rapidly “deteriorating affordability conditions.”

Per NAR’s statistics, the national median home sales price for Jan. 2017 was $228,900 – representing a 7.1% uptick from Jan. 2016 for all single-family residential listings (SFR) sold in the US. Meanwhile in Washington County, the average median sales price for southern Utah home last week was $251,950.

Diminished inventory aside, Saturday and Sunday will be the last two days of the 2017 St. George Area Parade of Homes. In addition to those 28 properties available for public viewing, below are the 9 St. George Utah open houses currently scheduled as ‘Open’ for today on the local multiple listing service (MLS).

Southern Utah Open House Directory: Saturday, December 16, 2015

St. George, Utah – it Saturday, December 16, 2015 and for some reason … there are only seven Washington County Real Estate listings scheduled on the Southern Utah Open House Directory so far today.

Let’s take a quick inventory: There are currently over 800 agents on the Washington County Board of Realtors. And the last time I checked, there are 135 very affordable St. George area condos/townhomes, 373 real estate listings in southern Utah between $300,000 and $500,000, 158 real estate listings between $500,000 – $1 million, and 45 breathtaking listings over $1 million in Washington County. Yet, despite all of those agents and all those real estate listings – there are only 7 Open Houses according to the Flex MLS system, which is utilized by the Washington County Board of Realtors. Despite the fact that we have over 2500 visitors in town for the 34th annual running of the St. George half marathon. Nuts!

I guess that explains why there are so many hungry real estate agents in town – poor time management. Regardless of my inability to wrap my head around the resistance of our local Realtors to do Open Houses, I’ve got blogs right, a gym to hit, and clients to tend to – so let’s wrap this first task of the day up.

Of today’s 7 listings on the Southern Utah Open House Directory, three are beneath $225,000, and three are over $325,000 – providing a rather narrow outlook on the vast and diverse real estate inventory currently available in Washington County.

Too bad.

With that complaint vented, today’s seven listings on the Southern Utah Open House Directory can be found in the following subdivisions/municipalities: Bloomington Country Club – St. George, Riverside Heights – St. George, Park – Hurricane, Washington City, Home Sweet Home – Hurricane, Sky Mountain Estates – Hurricane, & Morningside Park – St. George.

Zillow Ranks Ogden and Salt Lake City As Two of the “Hottest Markets of 2016”

Too bad I loathe this company. I ordinarily love to disseminate otherwise great real estate stories occurring in the Beehive State. But reading that Ogden and Salt Lake City have entered Zillow’s top 10 list for projected home sales during 2016, leaves me feeling conflicted. It’s great news for Utah, Ogden and SLC, but seeing Zillow grind out statistics purely for search engine optimization (SEO) value, drives me a little crazy.

Zillow Ranks Ogden and Salt Lake City As Two of the “Hottest Markets of 2016”

Zillow Ranks Ogden and Salt Lake City As Two of the “Hottest Markets of 2016”

Forgetting my personal gripe with Zillow (at least for now), according to KUTV, Zillow conducted a study analyzing national statistics on current income levels, unemployment statistics as well as the forecasted level of appreciation for real estate around the country, and determined that Ogden & SLC are serious contenders. Thanks to our fiscally responsible politicians, an influx of high-tech jobs from the Silicon Valley to the Silicon Slopes, and a seriously reduced cost of living index, “Ogden and Salt Lake City took sixth and seventh places, respectively.”

Coming in just behind Denver Colorado, Seattle Washington, Dallas Texas, Richmond Virginia and Boise Idaho, Utah was said to have “great incomes” and “low unemployment.” As such, Ogden is looking at a projected appreciation of 5% for 2016. Not bad.

A quick rant/caveat on Zillow

While Zillow offers a seemingly convenient service on many mobile platforms, Zillow’s information is often nothing more than a guesstimate. In Utah, for example, we are a nondisclosure state. Meaning companies like Zillow don’t have access to the county records, or their actual recorded home sales prices. And unlike active Realtors that participate in their local Multiple Listing Service, provided through their Board of Realtors, Zillow’s numbers are little more than a bad guess based on an algorithm. In addition to offering guesswork as fact, they enjoy trying to replace the local Realtor as the hub of any real estate transaction.

Zillow Ranks Ogden and Salt Lake City As Two of the “Hottest Markets of 2016”

In the past, active realtors with a history of successful real estate transactions would build a team of lenders, escrow officers, and home inspectors based on experience and competency. Leaving unscrupulous lenders, disreputable home inspectors, and non-responsive escrow officers to find another means of luring their next client into their clutches. Now, thanks to the likes of Zillow, all one of these Bad Actors require is a fistful of dollars and a penchant to spend.

The way it works is sleazy and simple

Zillow charges the Realtor a varied amount of cash for a certain percentage of real estate leads within specific ZIP Codes; regardless of the realtors local knowledge of the subdivisions within that area. So the realtor with the deepest pockets… gets the most traffic, in whatever area they desire – not necessarily the one they know best.

Regardless of experience, reputation, or local knowledge

Zillow then offers to offset the Realtor’s coast if they can get a lender to “Partner” up with them by encouraging the lender to sign up and pay for Zillow’s service. Again, regardless of experience. And while it’s great that online buyers can view every listing within a geo-targeted area, it must be frustrating for a buyer to call Zillow’s referred agent, only to discover he knows nothing about the individual property, surrounding area, or applicable subdivision.

In addition to my above-mentioned complaints about Zillow, it seems worth mentioning that most agents who can afford Zillow’s exorbitant fees are generally too busy to meet with clients face-to-face. Instead they delegate that untidy task to their assistance – usually newbies in the industry with next to no experience.

Conversely, there are many tech savvy agents that offer direct access into their local Multiple Listing Service and who enjoy an intimate knowledge of the local area. Unlike some, they personally answer their phones. They enjoy a personal relationship with multiple lenders; they know which home inspectors are lazy and understand the importance of proper disclosure.

There, I’ve vented. I feel much better now.

Washington County Board of Realtors Brokers Tour: January 12, 2016

St. George Utah – it’s Tuesday, January 12, 2016 and there are seventeen southern Utah real estate listings on today’s Washington County Board of Realtors (WCBR) Brokers tour.

While the St. George market remains healthy, it’s important to understand that recessions tend to happen on a cyclical basis; approximately every eight years. And unfortunately for all, the last recession kicked off in 2008. As such, Fortune’s recent story about the US real estate market being overvalued by 25% to 60% has caused more than a little hand wringing for those residing in hyperactive real estate markets from coast-to-coast. The overvalued markets tend to reside in metropolitan markets with robust financial underpinnings, and consist of homes that cost well over $1000 a square foot. Fortunately for those in southern Utah, the range of our average asking price per square foot starts at approximately $70, shooting up to over $500 per square foot for some of the ultra high-end luxury homes.

With all of that said, the 17 real estate listings on today’s WCBR tour fall on the affordable side of the spectrum. From the reasonably priced 2 bed, 2 bath, Sunriver home, comprised of 1,764 ft.² and listed for $284,900… to the four bed, four bath, 2,350 ft.² home up at The Ledges of St. George; Southern Utah’s real estate listings offer a lot of bang for the buck.

Today’s tour will focus on the following subdivisions: Sunbrook, Paradise Cove Townhomes, The Ledges of St. George, Sun River, Garden Park, Bloomington Country Club, Mesa Palms Homes, Tuscany Hills, Shadow Creek, and Whisper Ridge

Southern Utah Open House Directory: Saturday, December 9, 2016

St. George, Utah – it’s Saturday, December 9, 2016, and with the 26th annual St. George area Parade of Homes scheduled to kick off here in Washington County on February 12–21, today’s Southern Utah Open House Directory shows 8 listings are gearing up and looking for buyers ahead of southern Utah’s architectural tour de force.

Today’s Southern Utah Open House Directory features listings ranging from $189,900, for 2 bed, 2.5 bath, 1,639 ft.² townhome up at the Ridge at St. George, to $535,000 for a six bed, 5.5 bath, 4,776 ft.² golf course home, located on the ninth fairway at the beautiful Sky Mountain golf course. While there are no doubt a handful of properties worthy of viewing on today’s list – these homes will pale in comparison to the newest 28 architectural masterpieces being rolled out for display during the 26th annual St. George area Parade of homes.

Thanks to the good folks at Southern Utah Home Builders Association (SUHBA) and Zions Bank, this years Southern Utah Parade of Homes represents a pretty big deal for the Washington County economy and is held every year during February. Kicking off the beginning of the President’s Day weekend – and running for a total of 9 days.

With all that said, today’s 8 listings on the Southern Utah Open House Directory can be found in the following subdivisions/cities: Sky Mountain Estates – Hurricane, Springfield Townhomes – St. George, Villa Bonita – Santa Clara, Canyon Terrace Estates – St. George, Park at Green Valley – St. George, Silkwood – St. George, Cotton Manner Condos – St. George, and last but least… the Ridge at St. George – St. George.
