The Cedar City Real Estate Market has a few subdivisions that were casualties of the Real Estate Market meltdown.

Cedar City Subdivisions...Rocking Horse Market Update 2/25/2012 - 02/25/12 02:57 PM
The Cedar City Real Estate Market really has some great mixed subdivisions. By mixed subdivision, I mean twin homes mixed in with detached single family homes. The Rocking Horse Subdivision is one of those great subdivisions. Rocking Horse was built in the mid to late 1990's. It has been popular with investors and home owners. I am not sure where the name for the subdivision came from, I have yet to find a rocking horse anywhere! There are currently 3 homes listed for sale in Rocking Horse ranging in price from $129,000 to $167,000. Here are some of the homes in (5 comments)
Parowan Subdivisions...Aspen Cove Market Update 2/24/2012 - 02/24/12 03:57 PM
I have often talked about the diversity of the Cedar City Real Estate Market. Much of that come from the different cities in Iron County. This particular post is in the County Seat, Parowan. The subdivision, Aspen Cove, is a unique subdivision, the first phase was built as a PUD and the later phase is not. The first phase was built in the mid 1990's and the second phase was built around 2005.

Cedar City Subdivisions...Mountain View Market Update... - 02/24/12 10:27 AM
In the Cedar City Real Estate Market there are some great post World War II Subdivisions. These subdivisions comprised mostly of cottage style homes that were built in the late 1940's. Mountain View is one of those desirable subdivisions with these quaint and cute cottages. These have for the most part been well maintained. They are fairly close to the college in the center of town. Mountain View is a fairly stable subdivision, although there are some rentals for college students. It is still one of the more desired areas of Cedar City. Most of these homes are constructed of brick, (4 comments)

Multi Family Short Sale Closed in 33 Days..... - 02/22/12 01:27 PM
The C Team was able to list and close a 6 unit apartment building short sale in 33 days. Was it easy? No, it wasn't, the bank's representative was anxious for a quick close as were the buyer and seller so that helped! This particular short sale included a 2nd mortgage. We did have make a quick dash to St. George yesterday afternoon to get signatures to reconvey the 2nd. It was fun, but that is the life a Realtor! In the end, there is the satisfaction of getting the deal done, while serving your clients needs. Our client was happy (2 comments)
Tuesday's Post...Life is a Highway.... - 02/21/12 10:28 AM
Anyone with smaller children is familiar with the song Life is a Highway, Rascal Flatts sang it in the first Cars movie. It isn't my favorite version of the song, but that is another topic for another day or at least another post. It is just sometimes my life feels like that, that it is a Highway. At the very least, I feel like I spend a lot of time in the car. The point of this verbage is to lead into my photo for the day. This photo was taken driving to Costco in St. George, it isn't the best (9 comments)
Cedar City Subdivisions...Stanworth Subdivision... - 02/20/12 03:10 PM
I have mentioned in other posts that the 1970’s brought quite a bit of building into the Cedar City Real Estate Market. The Stanworth subdivision is another of those late 1960’s to early 1970’s subdivisions. It was built in a time when most of the homes being built were built as brick homes. The Stanworth Subdivision is also near Cedar High School, it is actually between South Elementary and Cedar High School. This is another subdivision with several brick homes. It was built in the early to mid 1970's. Currently there are no homes listed for sale on our Multiple Listing (1 comments)

Ah...Sunday... - 02/19/12 08:46 AM
The thing that has struck me the me the most about February and living in Cedar City is the Yo-Yo weather that we have been enjoying. Yesterday was one of those "Chamber of Commerce" sort of days. There was a blue clear sky, the temperatures were in the high 50's to low 60's. It was just a gorgeous day, we have had enough of these kind of days that the trees are budding and getting ready to bloom.
Cherry Tree Note the brilliant blue sky T This is the wall in my backyard, about 15 minutes ago. Still snowing! What (10 comments)
Fog in St. George..... - 02/18/12 03:19 PM
Darcy and I saw this when we went to St. George on Thursday. The camera in my phone doesn't really do much justice to the scene that was taking place. Taking the pictures as we drove down Interstate 15 at 75 MPH probably didn't enhance the photos either! The first picture looks like a cloud, it is really a ground fog that you can see better on the next two pictures.
It was a surreal sight to behold, and the fog quickly burned off in the morning sun. The last two photos it looks more like smoke from (11 comments)
Cedar City Subdivisions...Pinewood Park Market Update - 02/17/12 02:07 PM
My purpose in writing about the subdivisions in the Cedar City area is to let people who are considering buying a house in Cedar City know what they can expect to find in The Cedar City Real Estate Market. Pinewood Park is a stable subdivision, currently there are no homes for sale in our Multiple Listing Service in Pinewood Park. This is a subdivision that is still very desirable to first time home buyers, especially those with families. Pinewood Park is located near the Juniper Haven and Palmer Plus Subdivisions that I blogged on last week. Pinewood Park was built in (4 comments)

Cedar City Localism Post...Fight Like A Girl.... - 02/13/12 03:52 PM
I don't normally like to post this many posts in one day, but there is a really cool activity planned tonight. It is called Fight Like a Girl. When I was a kid this was a politically incorrect thing to say to other boys usually with the word you preceding the fight like a girl. This is much better! This is a benefit for 4 different pediatric cancer patients. There are very few causes more valid than anything to do with Children fighting cancer! The activity is at 7 PM at the Heritage Center (105 N 100 East). Tickets are (10 comments)

Many of you know, I love Sports, much to Darcy's chagrin. I will say that I used to really prefer college basketball to the NBA, but in the era of the one year and done with college, I just have a hard time following it. Those who know me, know that for the most part I am a "homer", meaning I cheer for the local team, in our case the Utah Jazz. I will be honest, we have been so busy the past month or so, that I have done most of my Sports following online. I just haven't had (9 comments)
Friday's Thoughts.... - 02/10/12 01:06 PM
This past Ground Hog Day as have all other ground hog days in my lifetime was special. You see I have a Dear Aunt whose birthday just happens to be February 2nd. She was as much a Grandmother to me as she was an Aunt, I am sure that many of us have an Aunt or someone like my Aunt Golda. Aunt Golda passed away a few years ago, but the reality is for the most part, we lost her many years ago. She was a victim of Alzheimer's. That is a horrible and insidious disease!!!!

Cedar City Subdivisions...Black Rock Market Update - 02/09/12 04:22 PM
The Cedar City Real Estate Market has a few Planned Unit Developments, or PUD’s, The Black Rock Subdivision is one of those. This is a well maintained PUD in so much I thought that it was newer than it is. Black Rock was built around 1996. I thought that it was built around 2000, but I was mistaken. It is comprised of detached single family homes that are generally 3 bed 2 baths with anywhere from 1200 to 1900 square feet depending on the model. There are currently 5 homes listed for sale in our MLS ranging in price from $120,000 (5 comments)

Brian Head Market Overview 2/7/2012 - 02/07/12 04:00 PM
As I have mentioned in some of my other blogs, we enjoy working in several smaller communities besides Cedar City. Today I am highlighting Brian Head. Brian Head is a resort town, Brian Head Ski Resort is the main reason for the town. Brian Head has the distinction of being the highest city in the State of Utah. At 9800 feet above sea level, it is in the clouds! Just kidding, Brian Head is more than just a ski resort. It is also a great summer destination to get out of the heat!

Thankful Friday....A Lesson Learned From My Little Sister... - 02/03/12 01:23 PM
I know that Thursdays are usually the day for the Thankful posts. The event that inspired (if that is what this is) did occur yesterday. I was reading a post on Facebook that my younger sister Lori had written. In her update she said that she may have lost a friend, but she was always going to stand up for what she believes in, even on Facebook. That is so my younger sister! The photo that I am using in this blog is of Zion National Park. If I have any claim to fame it is that my Great-Great Grandfather, Isaac (13 comments)
Cedar City Subdivisions...Cedar Meadows Market Update 2/3/2012 - 02/03/12 01:18 PM
One of the benefits of writing this series of posts on the subdivisions in the Cedar City Real Estate Market area, is that I find that I have overlooked some great subdivisions in my initial reports. This has forced me to be a better Realtor and learn more about my market area. The Cedar Meadows Subdivision is on the west side of Cedar City. It is a subdivision built of single family detached homes built on lots that are usually .17 of an acre. It is a subdivision that was built in the mid to late 1990’s.

Cedar City Market Overview - 02/01/12 12:50 PM
I have spent some time talking about the wonderful small cities in the Cedar City Real Estate Market and what a joy it is to be able to work in those cities. I haven’t spent the time writing about the heart of the Cedar City Real Estate Market, Cedar City. Cedar City boasts a population near 28,000, that doesn’t account for the students at Southern Utah University. Cedar City is 250 miles south of Salt Lake City on Interstate 15. For those coming from the south, it is 185 miles north of Las Vegas. Cedar City, as I mentioned, is home (8 comments)
