From Tenaya Sands to Escalera, St. George Realtors with the Washington County Board sold 49 single-family residential listings and/or condominiums over the past seven days.
It’s Monday, June 19, 2017, and over the past seven days, southern Utah’s Realtors have successfully closed 33 real estate transactions in Washington County.
Projected to increase approximately 7% over the next 12 months, Utah’s real estate prices remain under dramatic pressure as many discover all the Beehive State has to offer. With looming interest rate hikes, decreasing inventory, and motivated buyers scouring the Internet, finding that perfect home in southern Utah requires a collaborative effort between technology and perseverance.
Of last week’s sold real estate listings, 18 officially closed escrow in just under 30 days, 6 closed escrow in less than 60 days, and another six listings took up to 90 days. As is generally the case, this week’s sold luxury listings took a bit longer than the average home to find the right buyer. Example: The 4,117 ft.² home in Coyote Springs, listed for $131.14 per square foot … closed escrow 117 days later for $128.01 per square foot. More value than price per square foot dependent; the home in Red Mountain Estates is a perfect illustration. Originally listed for $749,900 – or $279.92 per square foot – that listing closed escrow after only 28 days, for $268 per square foot.
