120 Properties Near Duchesne Up For Sale

Sep 20, 2018, 6:15 PM | Updated: 9:47 pm

DUCHESNE, Utah – There’s a Utah land rush underway in Duchesne. It’s a chance to buy a retirement property, your dream cabin, or even a hotel in the midst of some of Utah’s most beautiful recreation land, for a good deal.

The seller is retiring and liquidating 120 properties in and around Duchesne, and considering all offers.

“We have a lot of properties to sell,” said Gary Hubbel, the lead broker for the utahlandrush.com project. “We’re liquidating everything. It’s all going to sell.”

Two hours from Salt Lake City, one hour from Heber City, you can make an offer on any of eight cabins or 100 lots from 2.5 to 5 acres – with water rights. They’re being sold in a mini ranches development several miles east of Duchesne.

“You come here to enjoy peace and quiet and enjoy cheap cost-of-living,” said Mark Woodling, vice president of United Strategic Client Services, who put together the unusual offering.

We actually saw antelope playing in the neighborhood with views of Kings Peak in the Uinta Mountains to the north.

The seller is retiring and needs to sell. Rather than taking years to sell off each property, the brokers will consider all reasonable offers over the next week.

“(They’re) 60 percent to 70 percent of real market value. We want to sell them,” said Hubbel.

A couple of the cabins were very large masterpieces, suitable for several families to share.

“Then we’ve got other ones that range from 1100 square feet to about 2100 square feet,” said Hubbel.

They’re trying to create urgency and excitement with the land rush approach. So far, they said, they’ve had a lot of interest.

The owner of the closed Duchesne River Inns has put it up for sale to the highest bidder.

Right at the intersection of Center and Main Streets in Duchesne they’re also selling a hotel, the Duchesne River Inns, which shut down several years ago. It can actually be operated with three other buildings within a couple of blocks that add up to 60 rooms.

Also up for sale downtown – two office buildings, one of which operated as the City Museum for years.

“Talk about buying a part of downtown. You’re on the two most prominent busy corners,” said Woodling. “This is where people see your businesses operating.”

They want all offers submitted by Saturday.

“Make any offer and the seller is willing to look at it. Nobody is going to be offended,” said Woodling.

They don’t expect the land rush to last long.

“If we don’t have offers, there could be an auction in the future,” said Woodling.
