St. George appears to have recovered really well from this last recession. So well, in fact, that it is booming with growth. Last year, as reported by Fox 13 News, St. George was ranked 5th among the fastest growing areas in the entire country. While this ranking included data from neighboring cities like Ivins and Santa Clara, it’s still a remarkable trend. The city of St. George itself is now over 80,000 people according to recent census data.
What this means is that the St George area is the fastest growing place in all of Utah. This also means that the economy is primed for opportunity for people who want to start a business or invest in real estate. With Las Vegas only an hour and a half away, and Zion National Park and several other major attractions within an hour away, St. George is a great location to be living and doing business. The perfect opportunity to invest in Utah real estate might be in this historic, scenic community.
