A Utah real estate broker has put the cost of buying a home on the table after a recent wildfire destroyed at least half of his properties.
The U.S. Forest Service announced on Tuesday that the average price of a single-family home in the state was $1,938,000, with the average home sold for $2,619,000.
The U.T.S., the national forest service, said the average number of wildfires in the U.D. area in 2015 was nearly four times the number in the entire U. S. in 2015, according to data compiled by the National Interagency Fire Center.
On Tuesday, a real estate agent at a brokerage house in Salt Lake City, Utah, said he was going to sell his entire home if the wildfire burned through his business.
“It’s the only home we can afford,” the broker told ABC News.
“It’s very tough.”
The fire destroyed most of the UT property in the area, but the brokerage house is not the only one facing potential damage from the fire.
A fire at a house in nearby Salt Lake, Utah burned through more than 90 percent of the property.
