houses for sale in parowan utah: Cedar City Subdivisions...North Ridge Market Update 3/21/2013... - 03/21/12 01:49 AM
Another great subdivision in the Cedar City Real Estate Market is The North Ridge Subdivision.  It is located in the county, just outside Cedar City limits, but near enough to still be a good option.  It is a new subdivision, which means that there are still several choice lots to build on.  It is located on the west side of the mountain.
This is a higher end development, it has large lots, many of which offer great views of the Cedar Valley.  As I mentioned most homes are upscale and the lots are all 2 acres or larger.  There are currently … (0 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Scenic Saturday...Sunsine on a Cloudy Day!!!! - 05/21/11 04:33 PM
Today was a really great Spring day.  Darcy and I showed a couple of homes to perspective buyers this morning, then we spent the rest of the afternoon at the Cedar City Business Expo.  It was a great place to network and meet new people, but it was indoors.  We missed the first really nice day in several days, that is alright, we had fun!  This evening we even fired up the barbecue and grilled some boneless pork ribs, corn on the cob and pineapple.  It was delicious!  Here are some photos of the evening clouds:

houses for sale in parowan utah: Thankful Thursday...Smile... - 05/19/11 08:21 AM
I am sure that everyone has had one of those moments when someone will say something, or something happens, and the words of a song begin playing in your head.  It is almost as if your brain has become a jukebox, doing it's part to get you through the moment, make you smile, or what ever it is that you seem to need at the moment.  I had that experience as I was sitting here trying to decide whether to spend a few moments formulating this blog, or doing one of the other tasks that I have been working on.

houses for sale in parowan utah: Tuesday's Thought....Memory..... - 05/16/11 11:31 PM
I was glancing at the box scores from last night's Major League Baseball games this morning, I saw where a relief pitcher for the Royals gave up 14 runs against the Indians in a game.  I thought of something that I heard Tim McCarver say about what it took to be a great relief pitcher in the Major Leagues, he said good stuff, and a really short memory.  You have to forget your failures and work on today's game.  There is nothing more useless today, than what you did yesterday.
In baseball that may be true.  In life, I think that … (15 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Cedar City Localism Post...Sonny Boy's Barbecue..... - 05/16/11 07:48 AM
We have put off going in and eating at Sonny Boy's Barbecue in downtown Cedar City.  Not because we weren't intrigued, nor because we don't like good barbecue, nothing could be further from the truth, we were definately both.  Sonny Boy's has a mobile smoker that when it isn't at a remote location is in front of the restaurant, feeling the air with that sweet wood smoke aroma.  There is nothing to compare it to!
We have put it off, because of fear.  Fear that we were going to be disappointed, it has happened before, and it isn't a good thing … (12 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Sunday's Thought.... - 05/15/11 12:34 PM
I think that Sunday's are  great day to step back and evaluate things.  Today has been no different, it has been relly windy today, no storm, just wind.  It is one of those days that really isn't fun to be outside because of the wind.  Anyway I came across a quote by John Adams the 2nd President of the United States.
"Old Minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order."
I like the quote, but I would eliminate the word old, I believe that the mind works a lot like a … (23 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Want to Visit Cedar Breaks.... - 05/11/11 10:52 AM
I was just reading an article on the snowpack in the the State of Utah.  The Utah Department of Transportation(UDOT) had an article that appeard on saying that there is still as much as 15 to 20 feet of snow across the roads in the high country.  State Road 148 is the access road to Cedar Breaks, they UDOT, is saying that it will be mid June before they will attempt to plow this road.
Part of this decision is budgetary, but the reality is, even if UDOT exhausts it's budget to plow these roads, you will basically be in … (11 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Today's Thought... - 05/10/11 05:43 PM
I have had a hectic day, I know that isn't really all that unusual for most of us.  While undwinding this evening, I came across this quote in an email.  It really hits home to me.  It seems like in Real Estate, there is always some one bugging us to buy this program or that program to do our work for us.  I know that we, get them almost weekly!  They can be really annoying when they call!
This quote comes from the Opera Singer Beverly Sills:
"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going."
This is so very … (17 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Technical Question...Facebook Questions... - 05/10/11 04:38 PM
Darcy and I were finishing up with the second Tech Tuesday at our office and one of the other Realtors in the office had a question.  We set up Facebook Fan pages last week, and this agent had linked the fan page to their personal page.  Today when she tried to post listings onto her fan page and have them show upon her Personal Page wall, nothing happened.  It was showing up on her fan page on the wall but wasn't showing up on her Personal page anywhere.
The kicker of this is that an hour earlier she had entered two … (11 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Motivational Thought...Opportunities.... - 05/09/11 09:52 AM
I have debated with myself all day whether or not to write a motivational thought blog.  Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with writing these type of blogs.  It may be wrong to debate yourself, but that could be another blog idea.  I usually spend a few minutes each morning reading the news stories on the internet.  I usually browse two or three different sources for news, so I don't get too much of slant on the news.  
The first thing that jumped out at me was that someone in the Real Estate industry must have done something … (10 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Monday's Thoughts....Buyers.... - 05/09/11 04:54 AM
I am glad that Active Rain seems to be fixed again.  I was going through some withdrawl shakes last night!  I hope that everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day!  This morning as I looked at the snow covered grass,(yes it snowed again last night), I thought about the buyer clients that we have, and what we have been doing to get them into a house.  I thought about each of their chief criteria to get into a house, I was suprised to see that the over-riding criteria is still price.
It is true that everyone wants the nicest house they can afford … (2 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Happy Mother's Day Wishes... - 05/07/11 05:13 PM
I grew up a Country Music Fan.  I think that the first Long Playing record I owned as a youngster, was Glen Campbell's Wichita Lineman.  The one thing about Country Music is that they do have great songs about Mother's.  Mothers are a great source of inspiration for all of us.  I wanted to include the chorus of a Glen Campbell Song as a tribute not just to my Mother, but to all the Mothers out there!  Happy Mother's Day!

houses for sale in parowan utah: Saturday with Some Words...The Kentucky Derby... - 05/07/11 03:05 AM
Todays is Derby Day.  This was one of my parent's favorite days of the Spring.  They loved to watch the Kentucky Derby.  Things were planned around the race.  They didn't care for the pre race build up, nor all the post race coverage, they loved to watch the race.  I remember watching the Kentucky Derby on a black and white TV set before we got a colored TV.  (I know, that is is old!)
There is something about a horse race that is mesmerizing.  I know that all sorts of races are fun for many to watch, but to me, there … (10 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Eat Some Chocolate...... - 05/06/11 11:16 AM
We got a little reminder from one of the great Home Inspectors here in Southern Utah yesterday.  It was his regular newsletter with a Nestles Crunch Bar, on the back of the bar he had pasted a label that said: "Always put eat some chocolate at the top of your "To Do List".  That way you can always say that you accomplished something!
I think that there is some wisdom in that, not just because I love chocolate!  Rather, most humans build their self esteem and confidence through accomplishing something.  I am not advocating going out and eating some chocolate every … (19 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Thankful Thursday...Thoughts and ideas..... - 05/05/11 06:40 AM
I am grateful for Active Rain.  For many months I have had a goal of writing at least 10 blogs a week, every week.  There have been a few months when I didn't quite achieve that goal, but all in all I have been able to attain it.  There have been days when I have had the ideas for up to 5 posts in one day.  I try to use the draft mode and write them, then publish them to either members only or public views during the week.
With the 31 days of May Challenge, I have tried to be … (13 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Cedar City Events....Commencement..... - 05/04/11 10:59 AM
I know that I am jumping the gun a little bit, but the For Rent signs have been springing up all around the Southern Utah University Campus.  Commencement is Friday, but the UHauls have also began to disappear from the UHaul dealers, so it must be time!  It seems odd that the University will be out so early in the Month, but it is happening.  The ceremony of Commencement is at 4:30 PM on Friday.
This turns some of the areas around campus into that vacant, near ghost town status.  I know that it won't be long until the students return … (10 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Tech Tuesday... - 05/03/11 09:10 AM
Darcy and I just returned to our office from the office's 2nd Tech Tuesday.  Tech Tuesday is an idea that came from our regular office meeting wherein the Realtors in our office get together and share information on tech tools to help us succeed.  It's format is similar to RE Bar camp, we just get together and discuss a particular topic.  Today, we went over Facebook and how we can use it in Real Estate.
These sessions have been really beneficial in building office harmony, I know that we're all competitors, but it is a friendly competition.  Besides, it is really … (15 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Tuesday's Thoughts...Baseball and things..... - 05/03/11 05:02 AM
I have been trying to think of something deep and profound to write into a blog for the 31 day challenge.  I was sick of the News Media's coverage of the Mission to take out Ossama Bin Ladin.  Don't get me wrong, I feel the same National Pride as many of you do, I am extremely grateful to those brave Navy Seals who not fearing what could go wrong, who accepted and carried out this Mission.  I get that it is an important objective on the War on Terror.  I just don't like the overkill from the media!
So I turned … (6 comments)

houses for sale in parowan utah: Monday's Musings...The Royal Wedding..... - 05/02/11 10:49 AM
I have refrained from commenting or writing about the Royal Wedding, to be honest, until I read the cost estimates, it didn't interest me.  But I will be honest, when I read that this wedding was going to cost between $34 and $60 MILLION DOLLARS, I thought to myself, what could that buy in Cedar City.
If the wedding does come in at the High end of $60 Million, here, you could have bought all 331 houses, condos and town houses that are for sale in our Multiple Listing Service and have $5 Million left over for upgrades! The 331 represent … (16 comments)
