When considering you search for a property manager for your home or condo in Branson Missouri, there are some questions you should be asking when doing your research. You would be surprised at some of the things that I have heard from clients moving to Investment Brokers Realty from other firms. The very first on your list should be what is your cancellation policy? I have heard people telling me that they have been told the only way they were able to cancel was by giving 90 days written notice after their property had been vacant for 3 months, or pay 6 months worth of management fees as a cancellation fee. Can you believe THAT?! That is sounds absurd to me. I understand a company wanting a certain amount of time to get a new property leased if they are putting money into advertising an...

According to our local statistics, Branson single family homes sales last month total was again only 19 single family, built-on-site homes with the highest priced one selling for $650,000 and the lowest priced one selling for $60,000.  The medium price is down to $140,000.  Not good news for Branson home owners or sellers.  10 homes were short-sale and foreclosure sales and that is more news we really did not need.  That is an increasing influence by the distress sales market in our Branson Market and not the good sign we have been looking for!  There were 9 condos reported to have closed escrow last month, which is 1 more than the previous month.   The sales prices ranged from $198,000 to $28,700 with the median price of $65,000, which is unchanged but 5 were REO/Short sales.  This is ...

It started as a drizzle...NOW I hope it RAINS!!!! I'm an ActiveRain Newbie! Well, here I go! I'm writing my FIRST blog as a member of ActiveRain! I was introduced to ActiveRain by my friend, Cheryl Dickson; she's a newbie on ActiveRain too! In just a short time, I realized what an important service you receive by being a member of AR. Reading posts, interacting, and sharing information really is a great way to promote my business as a home inspector in Taney County, Missouri.   I have been a home inspector for over 10 years. It is refreshing to see how real estate professionals all over the United States are different and yet the same.  I particularly enjoy seeing how people adapt their homes and change their living conditions and needs, based on the different climates and altitudes. I ...

As things are gearing up for the holidays, I am finaly finding the time to share some of the beautiful pictures I was able to capture this fall. While I can't share my whole photo album I will try to give you some of the best from around Branson MO. This may have been one of the prettiest Falls we have had in a while. This was taken just off Sycamore Church Rd. on the way to list a beautiful home in Horizon Hills for sale. These two were take at College of the Ozarks of some pepper plants the students grew in one of their many beautiful flowerbeds.

According to our local statistics, Branson single family homes sales last month total was down 5 to 19 single family, built-on-site homes with the highest priced one selling for $409,000 and the lowest priced one selling for almost $59,000.  That is a big decrease in the number of single family homes sold and the medium price is back down to $160,000.  Not good news for Branson home owners or sellers.  Only 7 homes were short-sale and foreclosure sales and that is the bit of good news we needed.  That is a decreasing influence in our current Branson Real Estate Market and a good sign we have been looking for!  There were 8 condos reported to have closed escrow last month, which is 2 less than the previous month.   The sales prices ranged from $160,000 to $40,000. That is a major decreas...

Branson Christmas Parade | December's Season of Celebrations and Sharing Christmas parades are in all our communities during December.  Our Ozark parade was held November 19, before Thanksgiving.  It is always held at night and is one of the largest parades in the area.  We are always in the Ozark parade and never get to see the parade in it's entirety, so tonight, we attended the Branson parade. With over 10 marching bands and and a large number of floats, it was wonderful, sitting at the Branson Landing, sipping hot chocolate and watching the faces of all the little children when Santa Clause made his entrance. The best part of the parade was the Joplin High School Band.  After one of the worst years for Joplin Missouri, the band received a standing ovation (and I hope an award for th...

      One of my favorite things to do is Road Trip to the small towns around my home.   Rick and I recently journeyed down to Arkansas and while riding 70 miles an hour, I caught this picture.   It is one of my favorites as it captures the beautiful Ozark Mountain Hills!     I do wonder the story of these goats on this day.....

According to our local statistics, Branson single family homes sales last month total was up 7 to 24 single family, built-on-site homes with the highest priced one selling for $380,000 and the lowest priced one selling for $35,000.  That is a great increase of number and the medium price is up to $175,000 and that is two great improvements in the single family home sales for Branson home owners and sellers alike.  11 homes, which is under 50%, were short-sale and foreclosed homes included in these totals.  That is a decreasing influence in our current Branson Real Estate Market and another good sign we have been looking for!  There were 10 condos reported to have closed escrow last month, which is a lot less than the previous month.   The sales prices ranged from $460,000 to $24,900. Th...

According to the MLS statistics, Branson single family homes sales last month total was 23 single family, built-on-site homes with the highest priced one selling for $500,000 and the lowest priced one selling for $32,000.  That is no increase of single family built on site homes sold over the previous month.  The medium price of $133,000 is a lower medium home price of homes sold and 50% were short-sale and foreclosed homes included in these totals.  This is becoming a very huge influence in our current Branson Real Estate Market, which is not really good news.  There were 8 condos reported to have closed escrow last month and they ranged from $275,000 to $36,000 in sold price.  The condo sales median price of $80,000 shows a very slight increase in the number of condos sold and prices....

La Iguana original Taco & Burrito Resturant opened just east of Cracker Barrel on Hwy 76 a couple years ago and people have fallen in love with the California-style food that is not normally available in this area.  Owner Alex has found demand greater than he could have hoped and is in the process of getting the new La Iguana opened as soon as all the permits and requirements have been met.  It is located on Fall Creek at the corner of Fall Creek Rd. and Hwy 165 in south Branson to provide for another group of locals that want an alternative to the typical Tex-Mex menu served in towns around the Ozarks of Missouri.  I talked with Alex the other day: La Iguana 2 Grand Opening Preview!

Unbelievable I thought after searching for a buyer with excellent credit, who wanted to buy a nightly rental unit at Indian Point Village. The price was $119,000 and no local bank or mortgage lender would touch it with a ten foot pole even with 20% down! So another agent suggested a lender in St. Louis at Heartland Bank. It is the most fabulous lending for any condo I've seen in months (or years)! So I'm going to shout it from the rooftop!! Heartland Bank-Norma Weitzel-314-512-8886 cell- 314-575-1100 Norma can offer a loan on a nightly rental approved condo with only 10% down, and with good credit 4.75% (depending on rates of the day) Ok, so for most buyers 10,000 is much more reasonable than 20,000 down, and under 5% that's pretty darn good!   Not many buyers know that financing like t...
