This weekend June 9-10 is FREE FISHING in Missouri.  The Missouri Department of Conservation suspends the requirements for a license the weekend after the first Monday in June every year. Its a great oppourunity to get out with the kids or grand kids and do some fishing in Missouri's hundreds of lakes, ponds, and streams. Free Fishing Days is designed to encourage previous anglers and first-timers to give fishing a try.   Normal fishing regulations, such as limits on size and number of fish, still apply. Here are some places to fish in Missouri.  This isn't just for the Springfield MO area, it applies to the whole state!

Are homes selling in Springfield, Ozark, and Nixa?   With all the ups and downs in the real estate market these days, we often get the question of "Is now a good time to sell my home?" For many people the answer is yes! Another question we get is "are homes selling in Springfield MO?" The answer is absolutely!  Here are some reasons it really is a good time to sell.   Interest rates are still at extraordinary lows. This makes home ownership more affordable than any other time in our lifetime. You could even afford lose a little on your sale and buy more house for your money when you purchase again. I guess you could call it a lose/win situation. You need to look at the total picture and the net bottom line.   It’s a good time to sell if you are moving out of the area for a new job or mo...
