            There are Options for a Delayed Closing in Springfield, Mo, although nobody wants that to happen!   Whenever buying a house, and perhaps closing another, everyone involved has to know that the closing date might need to be pushed back and you may find yourself without a home and everything packed up.   It does happen, and goes with the territory of buying and selling, on occasion.             Whenever writing a contract, or negotiating a contract it is VERY IMPORTANT to pay attention to the closing date.   That is the date that the bank is aiming for, the title company must have all paperwork complete,  the date that utilities, moving trucks, and buyer and seller are to be available to close.    Everyone needs to look at their planner, and plan accordingly, many take the day...

Someone asked me today if the average sales price has gone down this year over last year.  I wasn't sure, so I pulled the data from the MLS and prepared the chart below. Basically, there is no rhyme or reason to the average sales prices over the past couple of years.  If you factor in the First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit of last year, you can see that the average sales price naturally dropped during that period of time, which is undoubtedly due to the average sales price of that particular buyer.  However, that correlation doesn't explain this year's drop in sales price during the same period of time.  So, I don't think that we can attribute much to the tax credit.  It appears that the average sales price naturally drops during that time of year. Overall, it looks as if the highest avera...

Our friends and neighbors in Joplin MO will be blessed with 7,000 - 9,000 volunteers starting Oct 19th to perform an Extreme Makeover.  The popular ABC television show "Extreme Makover Home Edition" will be filming in Joplin for a week. Details of the project are still a secret; however, the build will include multiple structures that will benefit survivors of the unimaginable F5 tornado that destroyed over 7,000 homes in May. This should again draw national attention to the rebuilding efforts in Joplin. If you would like to volunteer for the project please visit their website www.joinextreme.com/joplin

Greater Springfield MO New Construction Home SalesThe Greater Springfield, MO, area has been the fastest growing area in the State of Missouri for the past 10 years.  With the downturn of the real estate market, new construction was the first segment of the market to be affected.  Most builders stopped completely.  Others tried to continue on, but were caught in the continued downturn and eventually went bankrupt.  Those builders that survived continue to build, but not at the rapid pace of the real estate boom from 2003 to 2006.  It is becoming increasingly more difficult to find a new construction home, or even a home less than 5 years old for that matter.The chart below details the number of home sales for 2010 v. 2011.  You can see the reduction in the number of new construction hom...

Greater Springfield MO Real Estate Market Single Family Home Sales - 2010 v. 2011     Want to know how the 2011 real estate market in the Greater Springfield, MO, area compares with the real estate market in 2011?  Below is a chart which shows the total number of single family home sales per month for each year. I was surprised to see that until the past couple of months, our sales were actually down in comparison with last year.  Much of this is attributable to the first-time homebuyer's tax credit.  Once the tax credit ended, it was literally months before we began to see first-time home buyers have much of a presence in our market again.  It appears that we have turned a corner, and a new market is emerging with the re-introduction of the first-time home buyers in the game.  This wi...

Current statistics show that about 80% of all Internet users view video online. Furthermore, 30 percent of all Web traffic is devoted to video. That number could be as high as 70 percent by 2020. Today's home buyers and sellers place a premium on video. However, only 3% of all real estate agents have a YouTube channel or use video to market homes and their businesses.  Its really interesting to note that 73% of the sellers are more likely to hire an agent who uses video in their business. It just makes sense when you consider the statistics above.  As REALTORS® in the Springfield MO area, we really enjoy producing video of homes for sale, community events, local items of interest, and parks and outdoor activities in SW Missouri. Not only is it part of our marketing plan, its a lot of fu...
