It was a BE-U-T-FUL sight There are many things in life that can be classified as a beautiful sight.  Things like a new born baby, seeing a grand slam homerun in person, getting the keys to your dream home, the first flowers of spring, seeing William Feela pose with the one that got away (fish).  But for me the sight of the sun this morning and then being able to still see it in the evening and having no rain all day simply says.......... It was a BE-U-T-FUL sight!!!

Rain, Rain Go AWAY........ Rain, Rain Go Away, after more than a week of rain it is time for it to go AWAY.  No, it hasn't been all day everyday but, it has been some rain everyday and it is getting old.  I realize that rain is needed to bring the May flowers and start the grass to grow plus other plants and trees and crops.   However, I do like to go outside and play too.  So like in days gone by I say........Rain, Rain go away.  Come again another day, Sabena and Choula would like to go out and play.

Every Home Buyer Should Know These "Don'ts"......REALLY!! When it comes to buying a home there are many, many misconceptions on what to do and when to do it.  The items here are to help the first time home buyer and the buyer that hasn't been in the market for a while.  For the buyer that bought 5 years ago things have changed, things are not the same.  Let's take a look at twelve of the things that you may not know or haven't been told by friends, relatives or even your agent. Don't wait for the perfect house...there isn't one.  Compromise & prioritizing are necessary elements in home purchasing.  You could have your home built and 3 months after you move in you will be asking the question, "Why didn't I do this or that?"  Look at those things that are a priority for you and your famil...

So, you are selling you OFallon Missouri home……. As I was reading through some old flyers for home sellers in OFallon MO the other day, I came across 8 interior items that buyers will be noticing when they come into your home. There will be many things that they will look at but, these are some of the more important things that they will be taking notice of. 1. Buyers take special notice of light and bright homes. So you may want to purchase some high intensity light bulbs and be sure to clean all light shades and covers. Don’t forget to pay attention to your ceiling fan lights too. 2. Buyers notice especially clean homes. Spring is just around the corner so think Spring Cleaning throughout……no matter what the season is. Give special attention to the following: windows and screens, coun...

Good morning Active Rain, My name is Missy P Ka Chu or as my friends (which is everyone I meet) call me "Missy".  Gosh it is early!!  Oh well I digress. I know that my human, Don Rogers, may not have been around Active Rain a lot lately and thought that I would get up early this morning and fill you in on why he hasn't.  All I have to do is get my paws moving before he gets up and see me on his computer. You see early in December he found out that he had a detached retina and had to have surgery and then two weeks later he had to go back in and have a second surgery.  So he really has been having trouble even reading and commenting on posts throughout the month.  It is not because he has lost interest it is more like he has been having trouble concentrating on what he is reading.  He as...

It's that time of year and what a WONDERFUL time it is.........

Hello? Did you just say HELLO? Yesterday I was scheduling some property to show.  As I was going through the list I come to one home that I had to call somewhere other than the office or a showing service.  It happened to be the listing agents' home phone number.  Now let me say, I am not opposed to calling your home, I am not against calling you at the gym while you are working out, shucks I am not even against calling you on the golf course or at a watering hole.  All I ask is a couple of common courtesies like: Answering the phone or Call me back when I leave a message and Identify yourself and the company you work for. Could it be that your listing has been on the market for over a year now simply because you are not returning your scheduling calls?  If you are a part-time agent and...
