Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report: January 4 – 11

Since last Monday, 36 single-family residential real estate listings and/or condominium/townhomes successfully closed escrow in Washington County. These most recent sales occurred between January 4 and January 11, according to the FlexMLS Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report.

As Realtor.com (a byproduct of the National Association of Realtors) continues to report the country’s real estate market will return to normal during 2016:

Next year’s moderate gains in existing prices and sales, versus the accelerated growth we’ve seen in previous years, indicate that we are entering a normal, but healthy housing market,” said Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for realtor.com®.”

But, what is normal?

NAR is also pointing to the millennial generation, those between 25 and 34, as a dominant buying force going forward. In addition to any millennial activity, NAR is also predicting a surge in overall real estate activity from both the Baby Boomers and Gen Xers during 2016. Noting that, as Boomers and Xers are already property owners, their activity will create a greater synergy within the regional markets.

Chief economist Smoke also noted, ” Next year’s standout year in total sales will be driven by three distinct segments of home buyers – older millennials (25-34 years old), younger gen X’ers (35-44 years old), and retirees (65-74 years old).”

As to the recent sales activity in the greater St. George area over the past seven days, we see three homes closing escrow for over $420,000; 10 homes closing escrow between $386,900 – $295,964; eight homes between $285,712 – $205,000 and 15 homes between $197,975 – $80,000. Strongly demonstrating that our most active market sector resides in the $200,000 – $400,000 realm. For those looking for slightly greater detail on the most recent sales in the greater St. George area, the below list outlines the individual properties original list price, it’s recorded sales price, the total days on market, and the property’s list price per square foot compared to its sold price per square foot. All critical data for anyone looking to make an informed decision when purchasing a home in southern Utah.

Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report: St. George’s affordable and moderately priced home sales kick-start 2016

St. George, Utah – it’s a new week, month and year; it’s Monday, January 4, 2016. With the 2015 holiday season firmly behind us, it’s time to drill down on the first week of real estate activity for the New Year. According to our Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report, since last Monday, December 28, 2015, 25 single-family residential listings and/or condominiums have successfully closed escrow in Washington County.

As existing home sales continued to plunge during November – to their most anemic pace in nearly 19 months – the national number for existing home sales dove 10.5%. Ending the year on a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.67 million homes sold in November. Which, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), represents the largest decline in sales since April 2014.

While the national median average for a single-family home was estimated to be $221,600 by NAR, the median sales price of a home in Washington County came in at $216,000 for December 2015.

St. George’s affordable and moderately priced home sales kick-start 2016

For those homes listed between $200,000 and $300,000, there were an additional 14 sales, as well as eight completed transactions between $84,000 and $199,000 in the greater St. George area.

Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report for Dec. 7 – 14

St. George, Utah – it’s Monday, December 14, 2015. And since it’s Monday, that must mean it’s time for the Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report for Dec. 7 – 14. According to the WCBR, over the past seven days 35 single-family residential listings and/or condominiums have successfully closed escrow.

As the feds continue to signal a modest interest rate hike is likely in our near future, something many are saying will be a “major macro error,” today is when inquisitive agents on the southern Utah Board of Realtors take an insightful gaze at their weekly sales report, extracting important data points from this past week’s sold St. George real estate listings.

While Washington County households prepare themselves for the onslaught of last-minute shopping excursions, extended houseguest stays, and the added accumulation of holiday bills, the added holiday distraction has resulted in Washington County’s real estate market selling 10 fewer single-family residential units and/or condominiums over the past seven days than two weeks prior.

Witnessed in both the affordable housing sector and moderately priced real estate markets … and leaving the $500k + sector flat for the week.

Example: The most expensive single-family residential listing to successfully close escrow over the past seven days occurred in the Padre Canyon Estates subdivision, and closed for $488,200 – on a list price of $497,900. According to the local MLS, there are currently 122 single-family residential listings over $500,000, and since the beginning of 2015, 225 properties over $500,000 have successfully closed escrow; of those, only 20 were in the million + club.

As we slowly begin to wrap up 2015, our Southern Utah Weekly Sales Report includes critical data for those looking to purchase a home in Washington County. Included on the list below are the most recent sales for single-family residential listings and/or condominiums, reported by the Washington County Board of Realtors.

The past weeks worth of real estate sales occurred in the following subdivisions: Bella Vista Stone Mountain, Bloomington Hills, Bridal Gate Estates, Cannon Parkview Townhomes, Coral Canyon, Cottages Fossil Hill, Cotton Acres, Cotton Manner Condos, Heritage Lane Townhomes, Las Palmas resort, Majestic Sunset, Mill Creek Cottages, Padre Canyon Estates, Panorama Park, Park at Green Valley, River Crest Townhomes, Riverstone, Royal Point, Shonto Point, St. James Place, Sunriver, Town Oaks, Tuscany Cliff Rose, and Tuweap Point.
