St. George, Utah – it’s another beautiful Wednesday morning, February 11, 2015, and over the last 24 hours 56 “Active New” St. George Utah real estate listings have shown up on the Southern Utah MLS hot sheet.
Of the 56 purportedly new Southern Utah properties appearing on today’s MLS hot sheet, only 26 are actually new to the Saint George Utah MLS.

Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, 25 Southern Utah listings have successfully closed escrow since yesterday morning.
