How do you gauge an Open House success?   A fellow real estate agent and I scheduled an open house event on a busy weekend, taking advantage of some the Annual St. George Area Parade of Homes traffic already in the area.   In order to measure the effectiveness of all advertising efforts, we asked everyone who walked through the door how they found us. The following are some of the results:    A family of five from California said they got lost and saw the open house directional signs. They happen to be seriously looking for a home plus the mother will be buying once they do.    Three women, a mother and daughter plus a family friend who live up the road wanted to see what the 4,332 square foot, 6 bedroom home home offered in upgrades and decor.    A couple wishing to take time off from ...

Southern Utah, a welcome place for police officers to retire.   Yesterday, a couple from another state walked into the downtown St. George office of PK Real Estate Utah. They were in town on business and during the course of the conversation, I asked the reasons why they were looking to relocate to the southern Utah area.     He said that several fellow police officers in his area are currently planning to make Washington County, Utah their final destination. The mild winters, state and national parks such as: Gunlock State Park, Sand Hollow State Park, Quail Creek State Park, Snow Canyon State Park, Zion, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef are a big draw for outdoor enthusiasts.     Hiking, biking, fishing, water skiing, world-class golfing are all part of that decision plus southern Utah r...

Although most of the homes are more affordable that doesn't mean they're lacking in design, decor or creativity.
