Is the Springfield Missouri real estate market in recovery? Home sales have been for the past few years and a sizable amount of sold homes have been foreclosures and short sales. Our market hasn't been as nearly bad as many other parts of the country, but we have felt the pain as well. New home construction has been down since it has cost more to build than to buy existing homes. So what are our predictions for 2012? We are seeing encouraging signs! Interest rates are unbelievably low, prices are affordable, and inventory of homes for sale has come down. Even better news, our phone has been ringing and buyers and sellers are actively using our real estate website to search for Springfield homes for sale and to find information about listing their homes. This is encouraging since its onl...

We often get asked what it takes to sell a home in Springfield Missouri or the surrounding areas of Ozark, Nixa, Rogersville, Willard, Battlefield, or Republic. This is a complex question and the short answer is - it depends! Buyers are looking for a good deal (or even a steal) on a great home in a great neighborhood. If this doesn’t describe your property, don’t despair. There are many variables involved but here are some points to get you on the right track.  1.       Location. It makes a huge difference if your home is next door to a well-kept home with a beautiful yard or next to a junk pile. You can ask the neighbors to clean it up and even offer to help. If they won’t cooperate then there’s not much you can do to overcome this situation other than price your home lower than your c...
