When is the best time of the Year to Sell My Home? - 11/23/08 01:02 PM
One consistent question heard by Realtors across the country is when should I list my property? Of course, the answer depends in what part of the country your home is located. For example, Florida's high selling months are probably different than the best time to sell in Missouri. One thing to always remember is that real estate data is local.
In the Tri-Lakes area of Missouri, analysis of the sale of properties for the past five years revealed that the months with the highest amount of closed transactions were May through August. The two months with the most sales were (0 comments)
Traffic to Improve in Forsyth - 11/17/08 12:03 PM
The Missouri Department of Transportation recently approved funding for a project to relieve traffic congestion in Forsyth at the intersection of Highway 160 and Coy Boulevard.

If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year. Americans throw away 25,000,000 plastic beverage bottles every hour. The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours. A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk, and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. The above statistics (0 comments)
Usually, the leaves start changing to eye-catching reds, yellows, and oranges in mid-October. Possibly due to a very warm and sunny autumn, this year's colors didn't arrive until a few days before Halloween.
I've been busy with my camera trying to catch images of the leaves before they're gone. Now is a great time to take a drive through the Tri-Lakes area! (0 comments)
