Getting a professional inspection done when buying a home in St George, UT is just common sense. There may be a couple of items missed during the inspection that you should be aware of. 

These two items are:

  1. The age of the the hot water heater.

But not so fast. Property management fees can be as high as 50% of the gross rental income for nightly rentals (i.e. the Ledges of St George).  From this example, you would net $1,875 after management fees.
