Hiking in Three Peaks area, Cedar City


My beautiful daughter Kris, RN. We call this 5 1/2 Peaks rather than Three Peaks. Anyone, fun recreation area near Cedar City.

Cedar Ridge our great local course

Newly spruced up local golf course Cedar Ridge, no more pink bathrooms! Club house looks great with it’s new remodel. More importantly the course is in tip-top shape, with improvements on course also. Affordable exercise and fun. With the “punch card”  my girl friends and I walk 9 holes early a.m. and have a lot of laughs along the way. No tee times necessary, call for tournament play. Some things have not changed Art is still there to great you early in the morning, what a great guy.

Cedar City Home Warranty

When buying a home, particularly an older house, buyers are often understandably concerned about the potential need for expensive home repairs in the future. Home warranty programs, such as the ERA® Home Protection Plan®, are available to buyers and sellers to help alleviate this concern.

Home warranty programs offer protection for the seller and buyer, covering most major repair or replace expenses within a home for up to a year or more after closing. With this added sense of security, it is easy to see why houses covered by home warranty programs on average sell faster than comparable homes without any such protection.

If you are interested in learning more about the ERA Home Protection Plan I would be glad to provide you with additional information.

Real Estate Retirement Options

REAL TALK: Age in Place or Find a New Place?

At some point you will need to decide where you will spend your golden years. It’s never too early to start pondering your housing options. Your personal needs and desires should both play a role in the decision that you make because retirement is your time to relax and enjoy.

Remaining in your current home is one way to spend your retirement. This way you can continue to live in familiar surroundings. In a recent poll conducted by Money magazine, this was the most popular option among baby boomers. Some experts have termed this “aging in place.”

You might, however, feel driven to age elsewhere. Retirement is an ideal time to relocate since there are probably fewer things tying you down compared to other stages in your life. In the same subscriber poll, moving in order to live closer to adult children was baby boomers’ second most popular retirement choice. Please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail for help with any of your real estate needs. Also don’t hesitate to refer me to anybody you know who may be looking to buy or sell a home


Real Estate Going Green

Here are some trips to fight power drains. A. ensure you are purchasing consumer electronics branded with the Energy Star logo and have been tested to be so. B. unplug some gadgets when you’re not using them, especially for extended periods such as vacations. C. New power strips available that can cut off electricity to some outlets while keeping power to others. Lastly, set the air conditioning to 75 when possible.

Solar power is on track to supply household electricity at the same cost as power from the electrical grid, the federal government says. The improved technology, cost of generating power from roof to solar panels should drop from 21 cents per kilowatt hour last yr. to 10 cents in 2015. That’s the same rate households are paying for power today.
