Are you thinking about buying a second home in The Ledges of St George community to use as a vacation rental home? There are several things to consider.

The first thing you should keep in mind is that vacation rental income often only supplements the carrying cost of a property - it doesn’t always translate to a profit once other expenses are paid.

For example, if your Ledges vacation rental is rented 30% of the time (optimistic), and you are getting $250/night, your rental would be bringing in about $3,750/month. Sounds good, huh? 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.

According to a new report from NIA Excel, a commercial real estate firm operating in much of the western United States, 2017 was a notable year for construction in Southern Utah. Records were made in both money spend and square footage created.

House Republican leaders proposed a tax bill Thursday that would reduce the popular mortgage interest deduction by 50%, for some households. Currently, homeowners can deduct interest payments for mortgage loans up to $1 million. With the newly proposed bill this deduction would be preserved for existing mortgages, but would limit new purchase loans up to $500,000.  In addition, the rule allowing homeowners to deduct property taxes from their taxable income would be capped at $10,000.  If passed, the bill will most assuredly have a negative impact on housing and real estate nationwide.  In a statement, National Association of Realtors President William Brown said, "Eliminating or nullifying the tax incentives for homeownership puts home values and

When we moved from the Salt Lake area to St. George, Utah this past spring we knew we wanted to have a swimming pool in our backyard.  After 3 crazy months we just had our first pool party in our new, beautiful swimming pool.  I am definitely not an expert on pools, but I will share with you my experience, as a first time swimming pool owner, who was involved in the entire process of building a pool.

First of all when we decided to build a pool we checked around and talked to everyone we could about what kind of pool we wanted and who should build it for us.  We were very impressed with several companies.  We had four different companies come out and give us bids in our backyard.  We decided we wanted a gunite pool after talking to our fabulous
