Southern Utah Open House Directory: The Palisades to Stucki Farms, It’s That Time!

From the Palisades near Snow Canyon to Stucki Farms in Washington Fields, Realtors around southern Utah are preparing for their Saturday morning Open House. As of 6 AM, there are currently nine real estate listings scheduled as “Open” according to the Washington County Board of Realtors FlexMLS system.

It’s Saturday, December 10, 2016, and with just 14 shopping days left before Christmas, Southern Utah’s real estate market remains incredibly healthy and focused on future growth and potential inventory issues. Jumping 11% on a year-over-year basis, just over 4200 single-family residential real estate listings have successfully closed escrow in Washington County from January 1 to November 30. With the average real estate listing selling in just under three months for just under $271,000, Vardell Curtis believes there is a looming inventory issue on the horizon, according to The Spectrum

“Our inventory levels are down 25 percent from the same time a year ago,” Curtis said. “I would say inventory between $150,000 and $250,000 is almost non-existent out there.”

Agreed.

And with that said,  today’s Southern Utah Open House Directory has three available properties between $239,000 and $259,500. From the beautiful Bloomington Country Club area of St. George – a neighborhood known for its mature trees and larger lots – to the equestrian friendly neighborhood of Stucki Farms,  today’s St. George open house inventory offers something for everyone.

2015 Washington County Economic Summit: Real Estate Market Conditions

2015 Washington County Economic Summit:  Real Estate Market Conditions

St. George, Utah – it’s Friday morning January 16, 2015 and yesterday’s 2015 Washington County Economic Summit was a smashing success. While winter has arrived in southern Utah with a vengeance, Southern Utah’s economy continues to heat up heading into 2015. As many expect commercial real estate to make a strong recovery during the next 12 months – Southern Utah’s homebuilders have been pulling building permits at the accelerated rate of between 100 to 150 permits per month over the last two years.

In many ways 2014 was a disappointment for some optimists, as it seemed to underperform based on the expectations of many. Seemingly stagnant, single-family homes and vacant lots and land prices remained similar to the fall of 2013. Additionally, commercial lease rates remained relatively flat during 2014, as the overall real estate recovery of 2012 – 2013 took a slight respite in the second half of 2014.

As the below slideshow presentation points out, which was presented by Vardell Curtis, the CEO of the Washington County Board of Realtors, the irrational exuberance of the last boom / bust cycle has been absent from Southern Utah’s recent real estate activity.
