Parade of Homes
One of my favorite times of the year in St George is February and the parade of homes. I am not a big fan of winter, cold, or dreary days. I have always considered February the beginning of Spring in Southern Utah. I believe that is what makes the St George Real Estate Market attractive to so many people. I know it is not the official start of Spring, but in my mind, it is close enough. When the inversion is bad in northern Utah, it seems like we have a larger pool of interested buyers this time of year.
It is exciting to watch the contractors hurrying to put the final touches on their new creations. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the parade. Ticket prices are $15.00 and tickets can be purchased online, or at Lin’s Grocery, and the Red Cliffs mall. The price might seem a little steep, but if you consider how many hours of entertainment you get, prices are not that bad.
When I work with buyers from out of town, many have never heard of the Parade of Homes. Once I explain the concept to them they really like the idea. I know that the parade is not unique to the St George Real Estate market, as there is also a Parade of Homes for the Wasatch Front. I am not sure if other states have similar events or not? If you have never participated in the parade give me a call and I will guide you through the process.
