Happy Holidays!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Christianson @ 2:13 pm

2018 was a wonderful year on Cedar Mountain. The cabin market appreciated in value and land inventory is much healthier than it has been in years past. There are some very nice properties available through out the region. Fishing was nice at Panguitch and Navajo and the fall colors were exceptional. Grasses have grown in from the Brian Head fire and the Forest Service has been working on restoration. Interest rates have climbed some this year but are still in an acceptable range. As Las Vegas continues to grow so does interest in these beautiful mountains. To learn more about this area and search all the local Southern Utah MLS systems, please visit us online at

Fall Colors in Southern Utah

Fall Colors in Southern Utah

Cedar Mountain just an hour north of St George is a wonderful high altitude destination to view aspen and oak groves in colorful fall display. There are plenty of places to lodge at while your here. Duck Creek and Cedar Breaks National Monument are some of the closest areas to I 15 but if you want to venture out further there is the Kaibab Plateau which is home to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. The lower elevation areas such as Zion National Park do not typically see color changes until late fall but the higher elevation areas change in mid September through the middle of October. Navajo Lake is another beautiful area to view the colors:

There is a small ski resort called Brian Head just oustide of Cedar Breaks National Monument that is America’s highest in altitude incorporated town at 9600 feet. The dry Utah powder is wonderful in the winter time. Panguitch Lake is a 1200 acre lake just 15 minutes from Brian Head that offers year around fishing and boating. Ice fishing and snowmobiling on the lake in the winter time are very popular activities. This part of Southern Utah is a great place to stay and play located just 3 hours from Salt Lake and Las Vegas. Feel free to contact us for more information and we hope to see you up here this fall.

Zion National Park


Now is a great time of the year to visit Zion National Park. The leaves are starting to change and the crowds have gone home. There are still some tourists but it is not crowded. Zion and Bryce Canyon are also very close to the Grand Canyon. This time of year all three enjoy cooler temperatures making for a more enjoyable hiking experience. Being out of peak season rates on rooms are more affordable as well. This region of the world has many other great places to visit that are little know. Capital Reef, Calf Creek, Cedar Breaks, Duck Creek, Panguitch Lake and Navajo lake are just a few. Lake Powell is also an amazing destination in and of itself for a vacation. Come enjoy all that Southern Utah has to offer. Hope to see you here soon!

Southern Utah Mountain Property

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Christianson @ 1:06 pm

Its mid June and the mountains are at one of their best times of the year. The aspen trees are fully out, the grass is green and there are wildflowers everywhere. In the deserts of Las Vegas and Southern California the mercury is in the triple digits but on the mountain it is in the 60s and 70s in the daytime for highs. Brian Head Ski Resort is putting in a high speed quad and a fishing pond. The resort is open for summer  mountain biking and all over the mountain the villages are gearing up for the busy summer season. Panguitch Lake has already given some anglers trophy catches to put on their walls, and Duck Creek Village has a few new businesses and the trail systems are open. Real Estate in Duck Creek has been picking up over the last month and there is still a good selection of cabins.  It won’t last long however. There are some good cabins at Panguitch Lake for sale, and Brian Head condo inventory is going down and prices have gone up. Don’t wait until the best deals are gone.

Duck Creek Real Estate market and area update

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Christianson @ 9:38 pm

Summer has come early to Cedar Mountain this year.

There are some great deals on real estate in the area for land, lots and acreage as well as a few cabins left. There are 2 new sandwich shops in Duck Creek, and the other local restaurants your all used to. The Duck Creek area has turned faster than other parts of the nation. Our real estate market is a second home / cabin market and people tended to give their vacation properties back to the bank first. Duck Creek has a few occasional foreclosures left and less than a handful of short sales at any give time. Most of the sales taking place in the Duck Creek Real Estate market are private sales not REO or short sales. Land is still very affordable and there are some lots bordering National Forest, and some bordering water for sale. Summer time is always the busiest time of year in Duck Creek, and most of the deals on the market now will be gone in a couple months. Don’t wait until the best real estate is gone.
