Below is the Republic MO Real Estate Market Report for September 2010.  This month's report has changed very little since last month's.  Sales of homes priced over $200K have been non-existant for the past few months.  This is a great community that offers excellent access to Springfield and excellent schools.  Buyers would do themselves a favor to not overlook this community when considering where to buy.             Homes for Sale in Republic, MO: Total Active Listings: 134 homes Under Contract:  6 pending sales Total Sold Listings for September: 23 sales Republic MO Sales Price Information Average Sales Price: $108,522 Sale Price to List Price Ratio: 97.07% Days on Market (for Sold homes) Average Days on Market: 106 days   Search Republic MO Homes For Sale

I attended the PTO informational meeting tonight for Republic School District. It was great to hear from the four candidates running for school board and what each person envisions for the future of our schools. The candidates are as follows: Lance Beckemier Calvin Cowin Dr. Ruth Ann Wood-Humiston Rusty Swift I particularly enjoyed the presentation from Dr. Vern Minor regarding the school reconfiguration. Many parents have concerns regarding the new school boundaries, transportation issues, school scheduling, building budgets and the logistics of integrating multiple grades per building.
