New Home Construction in St. George Utah

Here at www.HotHomesofStGeorge.com we strive to achieve the best service in the St. George Utah Real Estate market. By doing so, not only do we help our clients find the best priced homes for sale in Southern Utah, but we also like to provide additional options as well. Some of our clients just can't seem to find that "perfect home" that they've been searching for. In which case we suggest building instead of buying. Not only are home prices dramatically reduced from years ago in St. George Utah, but so are building costs. Many home buyers in Southern Utah assume that it's much cheaper to go out and buy a foreclosure or Short-Sale, but often that's not the case. Many of these distressed properties in St. George Utah are in pretty bad condition, and are in need of some major repairs. The price of the distressed home, and additional repair costs don't always add up to a smart buy. There are many factors when determining the value of the homes for sale in St. George Utah, and Southern Utah.

Probably the biggest factor is "location, location, location".  Identical homes in different neighborhoods, or different areas of the city, can have a significant price difference just because of its location. Other obvious factors include:

  • Age of the home (what year it was built)New Home Construction in St. George Utah
  • Size (sq. footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, living room, family room, etc.)
  • Materials used to build the home (granite vs. formica, travertine vs. linoleum, etc)
  • The condition of the home (and how well it was taken care of)
  • Yard (pool, no pool, child friendly, landscaping, trees, private backyard, etc)
  • Location (Views, shopping nearby, freeway access, proximity to schools, parks, etc)
  • Comps (what other homes in the same neighborhood are selling for)

Many of our clients that can't seem to find that perfect house for one reason or another elect to build instead of buy, for many of the following reasons:
