I hope you will have the time to explore the sate a little more on another visit. Our scenery here is spectacular and it is impossible to describe all there is to offer. Recently, Utah was named the best managed state in the nation.
Like much of the rest of the country we have seen continuing declines in home prices but I believe we are getting ready for a rebound.

Price for a 3 bed/2 bath can vary depending quality of construction. check out this link for additional economic information about the area. http://www.whatsupdownsouth.com/main.html You need to come to Saint George to fully appreciate it.
ever sell our home in North Georgia, we will be heading to St. George and hope they have closed the gate by the time that happens!!! In the interest of disclosure, I am a Realtor in Georgia in a difficult and very depressed market. St. George looked like a gold mine waiting to be worked to me!!!! GO, spend some time there and research for yourself.
Give me a call for more info.
