For many types of properties, selling at auction is a powerful, highly effective alternative to traditional real estate brokerage. Where marketing approaches of traditional brokerage firms can last many months or even years, the auction process takes every aspect of effective real estate marketing and dramatically compresses the sales cycle, minimizes carrying costs, and creates a single moment of competitive bidding that determines the property's true market value.   Sold Competitively at Real Estate Auction     Auctions are unique events that focus market attention on the property, at the expense of competing properties. Auctions create urgency for buyers who wish to purchase the property, and an absolute buying deadline that did not exist prior to offering the property up at auction....

While not recession-proof, the Midwest and more specifically the St. Charles County region, has escaped the recent economic woes and mortgage crisis better than most. O’Fallon is a case in point. The St. Charles County Association of Realtors notes that in May, 102 single-family properties in O’Fallon were sold. That’s a 21 percent increase over the 84 houses sold in April. At the national level, home sales rose 2.4 percent from April to May (National Association of Realtors). On the flip side, the average sale price was down 7 percent from a year ago.Even considering the lower sale price, the movement of homes with a SOLD sign in the front lawn indicates a slow but steady return to housing normality. The total transformation is a long way away, no doubt about it, but the economic news ...

About a month, or so, ago my darling and I went to the O Fallon MO DQ for a treat and we just so happened to take our Pug, Missy, with us.  We went thru the drive thru and placed our order, when we drove up to the window the young lady said wait jsut a minute and went over and got a small cup of vanilla ice cream for the dog.  Well now everytime we go and we take Missy with us this is how she acts once the order is placed. Ok let's go the order has been placed!! What's taking so doggone long? When is that car gonna move? WOW, it's about time...... This is better than going to the bank and getting that silly dog biscuit!!

What is age all about? In the time that I have been in real estate I have listed and sold many properties.  They have all been different styles and ages and price ranges.  The sellers have been in different age ranges.  And up until this week I have not listed a home that is owned by folks in their 80's.  Now most would think that the interior would be, well you know, dated.  The thought is that seniors are living in the past and can't get out of it.  They don't have any taste, all they like are things that are from the past forget about the now.  This is totally a perception and ill conceived and you will be seeing what I am talking about.  The lady of this home is in her 80's and lives with her husband and now enjoy their retirement and well they should.  I was called out to their hom...

What a difference a day makes......... We have all experienced it; one day there is a storm brewing.  It is like the whole world is about to break forth in a massive storm.  Problems with our clients, building inspections, financing contingencies and even buyer remorse what else could possibly go wrong?  Then the title company calls with a problem with the title, OMG could anything else possibly go wrong and then the phone rings and it is an upset seller wanting to cancel their listing.  We go home thinking the market sucks and why put up with all of these headaches, it's not worth it!  Then tomorrow comes...............What a difference a day makes!!!!! The sun is out and all is well!!  The phone is ringing with new buyers and sellers and a load of GREAT opportunities.  Sometimes all i...

We all have one of these in our area, Will I see you there? Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day that we honor those that have served in the US Military and have died protecting our nation and its freedoms.  We in St Charles County Missouri have several Veteran Memorials: St. Peters, Missouri Veterans Memorial   O Fallon, Missouri Veterans Memorial   Lake St. Louis, Missouri Veterans Memorial   Then there is the most familiar of all of our nation's memorials Arlington National Cemetery   Carved out of 1,100 acres this 624 acre site is the most widely know of the 120 national cemeteries. Memorial Day is a day to remember those that have died protecting our freedoms.  And in that reference I would encourage you to take a few minutes to reflect on what the brave service men and women have done....
