Ok, home designers, builders, architects, whoever lays out a house, please - please keep in mind the shopping trips from the grocery store! I have toured the following homes this week that would present the following obstacles for the return from the grocery store: 1.  You drive into the garage, step up into the home, walk through a hallway, step down into a sunken room, step back up into the kitchen and finally set your groceries down. 2.  You drive up into a back covered patio, go through a sun-room, through a bedroom, into the kitchen to get rid of those bags. 3.  You have to park 75 feet from the house, no carport, no garage, maneuver the yard fence gate, through the yard, step up onto the porch, through the living room, into the kitchen to unload your arms. One home owner had purch...

  I read a very good article with the above title.  New investors in Income Property might be interested in reading the article.  I enjoyed it. Some quotes from the article:  "Three key words are necessary to increase the probabilities in your favor: (1) knowledge, (2) time, and (3) focus. Those real estate investors who don't have those three characteristics are discovering that not everyone makes money; you can lose money." "How do you know if the price is right? Because that's what the seller wants? Obviously not. Because the broker said so? Of course not. The price will be closer to being correct when you have (supported by outside expertise where necessary): Completed an intensive study of the area (macro and micro). Analyzed the income and expenses. Evaluated the physical structur...

Oklahoma Ranks 47th in taxes in U.S. Based upon information contained on MSN Money Website: Property taxes: Where does your state rank? Oklahoma is an excellent state to relocate to if you are looking for a lower tax base. When relocating to an area, there are severl things to be considered.  One of those is the taxes you will be paying.  There are three areas of taxation that I get asked about frequently by those considering moving to Southeast Oklahoma.Property (Ad Valorem) TaxesIncome TaxesSales Taxes.   To calculate Ad valorem taxes: 1.  Market value which is often calculated as the sales price which is pulled from the filed deed via the documentary stamps.2.  Assessed value is then calculated at 11% of market value.3.  If you qualify for homestead exemption and have filed for it, s...

Property description has been removed due to property being removed.  Idabel Oklahoma and McCurtain County are great places to live.  Between all of the outdoor things to do, atvs, fishing, hunting, boating, skiing, golfing, horse back riding, canoeing...pretty much if you can do it outdoors and it doesn't require snow (we do not get much snow here), then this is the place to do it. Great schools, communities, and a wonderful place to live.  Idabel, Oklahoma in the extreme southeast corner of Oklahoma is it.  We are almost in Arkansas and almost in Texas, about 20 miles to either one.  Texarkana is the closest larger town being about 80 miles away. Come see Idabel for a visit and maybe you'll like it enough to stay.

I really enjoy living in Idabel in Southeast Oklahoma.  It's a great place to live. The best thing about it is the people and the real estate business brings me into contact with a lot of the local people. The Idabel community is very involved in it's people and vice versa.  It's a small town of about 7000 people.   Idabel is home to "The Warriors", the basketball and football teams of the Idabel school system. We are served by the Idabel Public School System for grades Pre-K through 12. The Kiamichi Technology Center and the E.T.
