We are grateful to find the Larkin Group! Our last agent promised to sell our home fast so we went ahead and bought our new home with him first. After 6 months of double payments we had plenty of time to do our research and called Jeremy. What a night and day difference! Jeremy listened to our situation and came up with a plan. We were impressed so we signed up and they sold our home in a week at the same price. Needless to say Jeremy stepped up to help, didn't take advantage and got us a great result. We just wish we would have called him first.read more

Michelle was a great asset to me when I was going through my move. I was looking in the St. George area, and Michelle was quick to respond to my call, spent time showing me houses in the area that were exactly what I was looking for, and was very professional and efficient. Sadly, I ended up moving to the Provo/Orem area, and she was wonderful to hook me up with a Realtor there, contacted a loan officer for me, looked into different loan options for me, and went above and beyond what I expected or even deemed reasonable. I am so grateful for her assistance. I would recommend her or her team to anyone.read more

We had our home listed with another firm and after insults and horrible service we pulled it off the market. Robert Mcfarlane approached us stated he would get us exactly what we wanted NO exceptions. We were very hesitant but decided to move forward. Though the home had offers they never came to us trying to get us to lower our price. Within a short time we got EXACTLY what we wanted for the home. Robert and his team were very professional through the entire process. I would only recommend working with the Larkin Group!read more

The team is efficient and highly effective with their marketing, advertising and ability to get your home on the market quickly. I would recommend them to anyone needing to buy or sell a home - the process was flawless. Even from over 1,000 miles away, Jeremy's team did an outstanding job of closing the sale and sending us the information we needed and wanted. Couldn't imagine selling with anyone else!read more

Nice Guy

If you’re not the kind of person who cares about hiring a “nice guy” to sell your St. George real estate, you’ll want to use that “back” button ASAP. If you are, well read on!

“Jeremy is such a nice boy. Yes, he was a picky eater as a child, but a good boy.
We’re so proud of him.”
-Mom

“In a world of certain uncertainly, there are two statements you can be certain about….

1. “Knowledge is Power”

2. “All Real Estate is Local”

I’m certain about it.”
-Some Wise Guy

And if those two statements are, indeed, true, then “Local Knowledge” is BIG POWER for Buyers and Sellers in the St. George Real Estate market.

Baby Jeremy and family CRUSHING 1976 attire!

For Jeremy Larkin, there’s more to life than just selling St. George real estate. He’s proud to be a true Washington County local, graduating from Dixie High, Dixie State College, and Southern Utah University (SUU) and resides in the heart of historic Downtown St. George.

He is such a local that he often jokes about living in four different homes along a three-block strip of 600 East in downtown St. George and walking to Elementary, Middle School, High School, and often College!

Not only did Jeremy grow up in Utah’s Dixie, but his parents did as well. In that time, the Larkins have seen the town grow from a tiny little oasis in the desert with 1 stoplight, to bustling but quaint paradise we enjoy today.

“You may think I’m young” Jeremy says, “but I remember when 700 S. just ran East past where Harmon’s Grocery store is and just turned off into the desert. There was no IHC, SkyWest, Target or any other “Big Box” store on that side of town – just sagebrush and our scattered underground and tree forts!”

Through the years, Jeremy has been involved in serving The Exchange Club, The Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival (SUPAF), The Boy Scouts of America, and is a graduate of Leadership Dixie. Most near and dear to Jeremy’s heart is Keller Williams annual “Red Day”, a day of service in which every single Keller Williams Realty office on the planet stops what they’re doing to complete a local service project (VIDEO BELOW!)

Keller Williams Realty “Red Day”

What company would close their entire office down for a day every year to do service? KELLER WILLIAMS, that’s who! We’re talking about “Red Day”, a KW tradition that involves every single office in the KW system. Our St. George office did a day of labor at Porter’s Nursing Home on 200 N. which included planting an entire veggie garden, park benches, flowers and miscellaneous interior paint work. The residents LOVED IT! Of course the real benefit was to those involved. Those people don’t see many visitors ever, so having 30+ Keller Williams agents in their bright red “Red Day” t-shirts tearing up the yard was pretty darn exciting for them.

 

 

Sell Your Home

49% of Homes NEVER….SELL….

Really! Current statistics show that only ½ of the homes that hit the St. George Real Estate market actually sell. Let’s avoid that shall we? 

 When you’re selling your St. George (or surrounding area) real estate, you want to do is as fast as possible, with the fewest headaches, and of course you want to earn the most money possible….who doesn’t?  We understand this and have developed a unique, (see: “effective”) 4-step Seller Success System.  Leaving a SINGLE step out can cost you thousands and leave your home languishing on the market for way….too…..long…..or cause your home to not sell at all!

We’ll consult with you on the Home Staging, Marketing and Pricing process, as well as discuss the critical importance of Buyer feedback in the process of uniquely positioning your home to get the absolute best results possible.

Our Seller Success System works. Like a charm. SO well, in fact, that the Larkin Group sells St. George real estate, on average, 33% faster  average agent, and for an average of 4% more money! And most importantly, the system relieves you, the Seller, from a mountain of stress so you can focus on the important stuff…like packing.
Step one.
Describe your home for comparison.





Step two.
List or describe any important features.

Step three.
Tell us how we can contact you.





Recent reports show St. George area home values rising faster than you may think! This is phenomenal news for those many St. George homeowners who’ve been waiting for values to rise enough to get their current home sold – and perhaps build or purchase that next home before values get too high!

To get immediate access to home values for YOUR neighborhood, visit www.dixiehomevalue.com, or of course feel free to contact us at 435.602.4685 or larkingroup@gostgeorge.com for a private consultation.

A proven formula for success!

Short on time? Facing imminent foreclosure or other financial danger?  You’re not alone. With the average St. George home sale taking over 4-6 months in today’s market, many Sellers simply cannot gamble on the “waiting game.” Every month is another payment... more HOA fees, more uncertainty. Whether you’re in imminent financial danger, need to get relocated quickly for new employment, or simply need this home sold so you can close on the next one, The Larkin Group’s Guaranteed Sale Program can alleviate some serious stress. Through this program, we can GUARANTEE to sell your St. George real estate at a price, and time frame, you agree to – or we’ll have it BOUGHT FOR CASH, or SELL IT FOR FREE! Yes, really.

Get Started Today

This program certainly isn’t for everyone, and of course not all properties qualify, but it could be for you. To see if your piece of St. George real estate qualifies and for details about our guaranteed sale program please fill out the form below:

Following Jeremy’s advice was key in getting my home sold

The thing that set Jeremy apart from other Realtors for me was his keen sense of all the subtle elements needed to sell a house. After wasting over 1 year and working with 2 Agents who couldn’t sell my home in the Boulders subdivision of St. George, Jeremy convinced me to wait to put my house on the market until it was priced right, 100% ready to show, looking it’s tip top best. He also had suggestions for “deal breaker” kinds of situations in the house, things that would turn buyers away. I feel that following Jeremy’s advice was key in getting my home sold within a few days of it hitting the market. Not only that, it sold for 100% of the listing price!

Best follow-up, consultation and customer service

I worked with 4 different agencies and 5 different Realtors when trying to sell 3 Ivins, Utah homes. The Larkin Group gave me the best follow-up information, consultation, and overall customer service of the group.  In fact, Jeremy ended up facilitating both sides of the deals that sold all three homes! I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who values good customer service in their real estate transactions.

Be on the Lookout for Gen Z: The Next Generation of Homebuyers

Be on the Lookout for Gen Z: The Next Generation of Homebuyers | Simplifying The Market

Gen Zers are the next generation of homeowners, and they’re eager to jump in and buy their first homes. Whether you are part of this generation or any other, it’s never too early to start saving, so you can reach your homeownership goal sooner rather than later.

You’ve likely heard a ton about Millennials, but what about Gen Z? In the next 5 years, this generation will be between the ages of 23 and 28, and they’re eager to become homeowners faster than you may think.

According to realtor.com,Nearly 80 percent of Generation Z members say they want to own a home before age 30,” and Concentrix Analytics said, “52% of prospective Gen Z buyers are already saving to buy a home.”

Wikipedia defines Generation Z (Gen Z) as “the demographic cohort after the Millennials. Demographers and researchers typically use the mid-1990s to mid-2000s as starting birth years.”

The report from Concentrix goes a little deeper on Gen Z, identifying the main reasons this cohort wants to own homes:

  • 55% want to own a home because they want to start a family
  • 47% want to build wealth over time
  • 33% want to make their family proud

Although they’re eager to buy, this generation also perceives a few challenges ahead:

  • 66% believe saving for a down payment and closing costs will be challenging
  • 58% feel covering the monthly costs of owning may be difficult
  • 52% perceive a lack of knowledge about where to start

It is also interesting to note that 21% of Gen Zers think their parents will provide financial help, 17% will use a down payment assistance program, and 15% believe other family members will help them. One of the highlights of the report mentioned,

“More than half of Gen Zers who think they’ll receive help also think they will need to pay their parents back, compared to 40 percent of millennials.”

Bottom Line

It is never too early to start saving for your own home, whether you are part of Gen Z or a different generation. If you would like to know where to start and how much you need to save to reach your goal of buying a home, let’s get together so you can better understand the process.
