If you just love living in the country...keeping the exterior wood trim and siding painted or stained is necessary to keep the native fauna from treating your house like a ginger bread house in a room full of hungry kids!! Painting or staining all exterior wood surfaces helps to protect the wood structure from termites, which swarm periodically to look for new colony locations, wood boring beetles and bees, and woodpeckers! Allowing the exterior wood portions of any house to remain unprotected or fall in disrepair, will invite nature's bounty of wood destroying organisms to your "Home Sweet Home"! Happy Trails!!

Last night I held a free workshop for first time home buyers.  The goals were for the buyers to identify their price range, understand closing costs, develop a buying plan, and review the purchase agreement.    I had no buyers show up, but I did have a very good loan officer.  We used the time productively and made videos.  We talked about the interest rates, credit scores, credit fixes and credit restorations.  When we finished the videos, I posted them to YouTube.  This morning we finished posting to Twitter, Facebook, RE/MAX Website, and LinkedIn.  Here is the link to the Youtube videos:  http://youtu.be/qe5IaZVCWHk   What a great evening!

Fireplace & Chimney Inspections in Jefferson City/Columbia/Mid-Missouri  Weather you live in Jefferson City/Columbia/Mid-Missouri or elsewhere in the world, using the home’s fireplace, stove, or even gas fired furnace for the first time is not without some risk.  The Mid-Missouri (Jefferson City and Columbia) local news reports are beginning to “heat up” with reports of home fires that are related to fireplace chimney issues. UPDATE: Fire Damages Columbia Home | KOMU.com | Columbia, MO |  is one example of how “out of sight, out of mind” becomes “late breaking news”! Proper cleaning and inspection of fireplace, stove, or furnace systems are highly recommended prior to the first use of the season.  Birds, squirrels, insects, and even lightning can cause un-noticed damage or obstruction t...

Well...I have moved my Home Inspection business to the Jefferson City, Columbia, Fulton, and Holts Summit area in the heart of Missouri.  Today will be my first day as a RainMaker, and this is my first public blog post!

I am also looking forward to bringing information and interviews from around the Jefferson City area to the ActiveRain Community!

There is a special magic between a mother and her newborn child, a wondrous thing unlike any other.  This bond is so strong that a newborn’s every gesture, its every need, its every cry and indeed its every nuance is perceived by the mother.  It’s instinctive; a mother just senses it.  Like special sonar detecting the minutest sound, so a mother can decipher her baby’s needs. "After carrying this seed inside you for nine months, this new person you give birth to becomes more you than yourself.  You protect it with your Life.   Overnight, this new being become more important than yourself."  Such is the bond between a Mother and her Newborn Child.  This extraordinary Love and Devotion is nothing new, nor is it unique.  This is a normal, everyday occurrence, engrained in us to ensure the...

Jefferson City, Missouri Realtor Leads - (800) 900-2807 Even through this Real Estate downward spin, we are still seeing an increased number of families relocating to cities such as: San Diego, Austin, Jefferson City, etc… Still the #1 drive is jobs, and that cannot be disputed. Although another big reason for relocation that started in 2008, was due to great foreclosure prices. Cities such as Scottsdale, and Jefferson City have both seem dramatic drops in real estate prices, which is driving the people to purchase real etate in those cities. If you are not working with families whom want to purchase foreclosed homes, you are leaving a huge chunk of money on the table. One of the top discussions right now on RealTown and ActiveRain is in regards to boosting your business with foreclosu...

One of the biggest problems facing rural Missouri in its areas where there are presently no building codes is the poor ISO ratings of the local fire departments. On a scale of 1 to 10, one being the “best” and 10 being “no fire department at all”, many rural fire departments are rated between 6 and 8 on the ISO scale. This low rating is measured by evaluating the department’s record in arrival times at the scene from the time the fire is called in, the quality of training and equipment, and the availability of a consistent and lengthy flow of water. Now…when you look at how poorly the rural fire departments are rated in their abilities to fight fires….consider that there are presently no standards or codes by which a person is expected to apply to electrically wire a building. Anyone c...

Would you like something to do and not have to pay for it?  Take a walk on the Greenway; tour the State Capitol; visit the Runge Center; check out books, videos, DVDs, CDs at the Public Library; & get to know our City Parks.  Do you have any suggestions?

If you're a consumer in Jefferson City you may be asking if now is a good time to buy a home.  The answer is YES!  Let me tell you why:1. Interest rates are lower than they have been in years2.  There are a lot of homes for you to choose from3.  It is taking sellers longer than normal to sell their home--this means they may be more willing to negotiate than they were last year4.  Save on taxes--the interest you pay on your mortgage is tax deductible, and you may be eligible for additional tax savings.You may be sitting at home thinking, "I'm going to wait until the market bottoms out, then I'll get a great deal!"  Well, that's a great theory.  Unfortunately, the national media doesn't know anything about the Jefferson City real estate market.  We don't tend to experience the high highs ...

You have all been there, the phone rings and it's a buyer on the other end calling about your house. You tell the buyer everything there is to know about your house just to find out that the price it too much for them or the house only has two bedrooms and the buyer needs three.

Protecting your family and your belongings should be on the top of your list. If you have bought a house the first thing you should consider is changing all the locks in your new home once you close. You just never know who might have a key to your home especially if the home you bought was used as a rental property anytime in the past.

The question all sellers have is "How much is my house worth"? To determine the value of your home you have a few options. The first option is to contact a local real estate agent and have them help you determine the value of your house. Most agents will do this at no cost. One problem here is once they determine you are selling your house for sale by owner you will get phone calls from them trying every thing they know of to try and get your listing.Another option is to contact a local appraiser and have them complete an appraisal on your house. This may cost a few hundred dollars but you will have a more accurate value as to what your house is worth. One thing to keep in mind is the buyer's lender will have an appraisal done on the house before they will loan the money to that buyer. ...
