The Southern Utah Market Is HOT!

If you are looking to buy a home in St. George, I wouldn't put it off to long. The market is getting hot, and we are starting to see quite a few multiple offer situations. I sold a particular home in downtown St. George for $169,000 two years ago and it just recently went back up for sale and had multiple offers on it for $209,000.
