By now you've probably heard that Salt Lake City has topped yet another list, this time as the #1 housing market projected for growth in 2022 by Realtor.com. As we've seen in the past, this projection will likely unfold in a similar manner in many of the other markets throughout Utah, including St. George. So what does this mean? What should we expect?
