Construction is in the future for Branson's City Hall. The Branson Board of Aldermen recently voted to allocate $300,000 to expand part of the police department and the city's municipal court offices.  Of the total expenditure, $27,000 will be used for an architectural firm to design the project. City officials expect to start and finish the project in 2010. The city has seen a 144 percent increase in the number of court cases, thus the need for more room and employees to handle these cases in the municipal court.

Nice area of Table Rock Lake. Although it is hard to tell in such shaded pictures. This was just posted this week for $279,000. There's probably some boat slips or a launch near by. I don't know much about it but would like to take a look!

According to the local MLS, Branson single family homes sales last month totaled a whopping 11 homes sold.  The highest priced one sold for $$325,000 and the lowest priced one sold for $96,040 with a median price of about $135,000.  That is less than half the number of homes sold in December and lower in prices as well.  Condo sales were steady with the same number closing in January, 6, as closed in December.  The highest one sold for $367,750 and the lowest priced one sold for $38,000.  They had a higher median price of approximately $130,000, so at least there is some good news for the condo sellers from last month.   Market information for land, farms, and mobile-home sales as well as other local information is available by request.  Real estate is always local and there is no probl...

This home just came on the market this week in an up and coming neighborhood of new homes. We just got a really nice Sun Fresh Market and Dollar Store here in this area. If you are familiar with Branson it is across from Holiday Hills Golf Course and Resort. This house is only $174,900. Unbelievable price for what would normally go for $250,000.   MLS LINK Please contact me if you would like a free list of forclosed properties in the Branson MO Area!!!!

Not so typical weather for the Ozarks right now. Usually the average winter temperatures for Branson, MO are around 40 degrees. This week it has been 0-10! Our tangled woods of oak and cedar trees are beautiful though, with every branch highlighted with snow. This was taken in my back yard yesterday. We should be getting more snow fall tomorrow. Be safe and stay warm everyone!

Branson Missouri Real Estate Market Report for December 2009 According to the local MLS, Branson single family homes sales last month total was 28.  The highest priced one sold for $489,900 and the lowest priced one sold for $44,500 with a median price of $180,000.  That is five less homes than November but slightly higher median price of $180,000 keeps it from being all bad news.  Condo sales were also down by the same proportion with 6 closing escrow in December.  The highest one sold for $132,500 and the lowest sold for $54,000.  They also had a lower median price of $80,000, so no real good news for the condo sellers last month.

  The Taneycomo Bridge is on of Branson's Landmarks. It is soon scheduled to get a face-lift starting Dec. 7th. After this is completed, there will also be a roundabout on one end making the flow of traffic much better for the folks that live on the east side. Hopefully too, opening the way for more real estate to turn on the market! Looking forward to that. Anyway, just so I get the facts strait for you-Here is a news article link in this weeks paper. http://www.bransondailynews.com/story.php?storyID=13841

According to our local MLS' latest information, Branson single family homes sales last month were down 6 to only 16 total built on site homes sold.  The highest priced one sold for $314,000 and the lowest priced one sold for $90,000. The median price for these homes was approximately $160,000 again, a good sign because the medium price is unchanged. Condo sales were down only 1 with 11 units sold last month. The highest one sold for approx. $225,000 and the lowest sold for $35,000. That shows a stable median sales price in that local market too. The number of condos sold is down slightly but prices are showing a steady return toward a normal market.

One of the best things about Branson, (heart of America to me) Missouri is their honoring of American Veterans.  People who have risked life, limb, career, and more to protect and serve the home of the free, are our heros! Branson Veterans Website Welcome to "Veterans Homecoming Week" November 5-11, 2009 "American tribute to ALL Veterans" Our Theme for 2009 is: Branson Doesn't Forget "Our Military and their Families" America's largest Veterans Day celebration, special events, many of which are free and all of which present patriotic salutes to veterans.

The county and MO-Dot have been trying to come to an agreement lately on how to control traffic during the re-construction of the Taney Como bridge in Downtown Branson which was scheduled for December. The paper said this week that construction will begin immediately at the intersection of BB Highway and Coon Creek Rd. with new turn lanes to help with traffic. They will need this completed to accommodate the traffic from Branson to Hollister when Mo-Dot begins the bridge project. However, the county and MO-Dot have been in disagreement lately about speed limits and easements in front of Hollister Schools on BB. For now the county is still trying to negotiate with Mo-Dot officials. Time will tell how soon construction will really start. Hopefully soon, a new way to get from west to east ...

Do you want to purchase a foreclosure in the Branson/Table Rock Lake area? If so, there are things you need to know to make your quest successful. Remember, you're not the only person looking for a great deal. The competition is stiff and many of these homes receive multiple bids. Therefore, being prepared will mean the difference between making a successful offer that results in a contract or losing the home to another buyer. The first step to being ready is to have a system in place to be notified about foreclosed properties. If you're the first to find the properties available, you'll have an edge over the competition. This is the easiest part. Just email me and put foreclosures in the subject line. I'll email you a list of all available properties and you'll also receive updates on ...

In the past, some of the local souvenir shops carried (and may still) T-shirts that featured a picture of two, long lines of cars on a two-lane road with the caption: Branson, The World's Biggest Parking Lot. This is proof that Branson has a reputation for terrible traffic. While this is still a busy, tourist destination, traffic is really not that big of a problem. Prior to the early 1990's, you didn't have many route choices besides Highway 76 and a few windy streets that circled through various subdivisions. However, since that time, many alternate routes have been developed to get around town. If you chose to head down Highway 76, the chances are good that you'll soon come to a halt and then a crawl. Roark Valley Road, Highway 248, Epps Road, Forsyth Road, Fall Creek Road, Highway 3...
