For the third year in a row Utah was ranked as THE BEST STATE IN THE NATION for business. What an incredible ranking! Apparently energy costs are low and the pro-business climate we have has helped Utah's economy expand at 2.3% a year over the past five years. Considering the state of the rest of the nation I'd say that's a pretty big kudos. Since the 2002 Winter Olympics tourism has increased. Governor Herbert says that Utah's 5% flat corporate tax rate is one of the lowest in the country.

There are always multiple reasons for success, but this strong economy is great for real estate because it is the foundation of a strong housing market. Keep it up Utah. We are doing something right. People want to live here where their families can thrive.
