Five Disaster-Proof Real Estate Destinations

4. UTAH The Mormons may have been onto something, as Utah has only declared seven major disasters in 57 years and none within the past five. Of those, the overwhelming majority of Utah's disasters stem from severe storms and ensuing floods, so heading to the high country may be a disaster-conscious newcomer's best bet. (OSTK - Get Report), Omniture (OMTR) and Nature's Sunshine Products (NATR - Get Report) are just some of the companies safely nestled away in Utah, but in a state of less than 3 million people, there's always room for more. In Park City, which is 7,000 feet above sea level and home to three ski resorts and the Sundance Film Festival, a group of 11 luxury homes are going up for auction Friday. The Park City properties range from a three-bedroom, 7,500-square-foot home with vaulted ceilings, five fireplaces and 360-degree views of Herber valley (for a starting price of $1.5 million) to the 15,000-square-foot DeerField Estate with a private gondola for ski-in/ski-out access, indoor swimming pool and a private theater (starting at $15.9 million -- 54% less than its $29 million asking price last year).
