Duchesne, UT, September 19, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- This October, Utahns may experience the closest thing to a land rush in their lifetime. In Duchesne, Utah, for the first time, more than 120 properties, including 2 offices, 4 motels, 8 cabins, 100-plus 2.5- to 5-acre lots, and several hundred acres of large tracts for future real estate developments are now on sale until the end of this month. The owner will then determine options to sell the remainder, which could include an auction where properties would sell to the highest bidders regardless of price.
Utah’s first retirement liquidation sale in years will focus on selling over a hundred 2.5- to 5-acre lots located one hour east of Heber City. All the lots have water taps, power, and improved roads. Access is easy year-round. In the pristine eastern Utah high country, the massive holdings make up a huge percentage of the local real estate inventory, but they have never been listed on the MLS. “The previous owners marketed their properties exclusively through their own methods, so these properties have never before been on popular sites such as Zillow, Realtor.com, and Lands of America. Many of these properties are being exposed to the market for the first time,” said Gary Hubbell, a broker with United Country Real Estate.
“We are charged to liquidate all 1,000-plus acres of land and other property around Duchesne, so we are starting with a sale, then hopefully go to auction,” said Gary Hubbell. “The sellers are considering an absolute auction, which means everything will sell, even those properties that only have a $1,000 bid.”
Ideally located, the property is 39 miles from Heber City, 114 miles from Salt Lake City and 169 miles from Moab. “This is an excellent area for anyone wanting a quick getaway from the city,” said Hubbell. “Only two hours east of Salt Lake, it’s the perfect place for a second home or a cabin retreat.”
“What’s more, Duchesne and the Uintah Basin are famous for year-round recreation, whether it’s boating, hiking, water skiing, hunting or other activities,” he said. “Starvation Reservoir, located just west of Duchesne, has great fishing, a brand-new marina and boat launch, a beautiful campground and a day use area. The Uintah Range is just 30 miles north of Duchesne, with all kinds of camping, horseback riding, snowmobiling, hunting, and ATV trails.”
Longtime owners of the massive acreage are retiring and want to sell the land and properties, including the motels and office space located near the busiest intersections in town.
“This situation provides bargain prices for anyone wanting affordable land, a low cost of living and recreational options everywhere,” said Hubbell. “There is absolutely no pressure on the sellers. They own everything outright, and they have told us to sell it all. Most properties are listed at 30%-60% less than the previous listing price. These motels, cabins and acres will sell fast. Buyers don’t have the option of watching these properties sit on the market. They have to act now, or they’ll miss the opportunity.”
