ST. GEORGE, Utah, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In March of 2017, St. George recorded its highest rate of home sales in a single month (WD Hobson), growing at a rapid pace of 3.8% increase with an estimated population of 200,000 by the year 2020 (Matthias).
St. George lies at the center of numerous parks, reservoirs, historical landmarks and more, with endless hiking, biking, kayaking, rappelling and other recreation. St. George is also within close proximity to Mesquite and the Las Vegas strip, or a day drive to Arizona, California and New Mexico. This prime location to these activities without the congestion of living in a larger city is what many people find inviting.
The proximity to Zion National Park, Escalante National Park, Snow Canyon State Park, Sand Hallow Reservoir, the Grand Canyon and more makes the area attractive to families, outdoor enthusiasts, retired couples and everyone in between. The expansion of Dixie State University is also attracting more students to the area. Over the years, St. George has been consistently ranked across the nation as "best places to retire, to recreate, quality of life, safety, and more recently as places to do business" (WD Hobson).
To keep up with the pace of development, dozens of communities have popped up around the greater area. "Consumer confidence is at high levels and expected to remain steady," says Eric Allen, Metrostudy's Regional Director for Utah and Idaho. "The key lesson for home developers is to listen to the consumer and don't hesitate to respond to what the market is telling you." In Allen's latest report of the St. George and Mesquite housing growth, BRIO was listed as one community to have adequate housing available for this projected growth.
BRIO Community homes are located along the north side of I-15, meaning central access to all Southern Utah's outdoor recreation. Their clubhouse, The Escape, was ranked #8 on BuilderOnline.com's list of "18 Clubhouses That Raise the Bar on Design" (Goodman). With the Enclave Series starting in the $220s, the Estate Series beginning in the $270s, 13 different floor plans and three different façades to choose from, residents are able to find a home that matches their needs and personal tastes. This community also encourages homeowners to enjoy amenities with their family of all ages, breaking stigmas created by other communities. Home sales have been brisk with 56 sold this year to date.
