united country vip realty: Lebanon MO home for sale - Not a Foreclosure - Move in ready! $84,977 - 05/27/10 05:56 PM
We often receive foreclosure calls that go something like this: "Hello, I am looking for a foreclosure property, for less than one hundred thousand, but I don't want to do any work to it. I need to move right in."This always gives me a chuckle because there are plenty of wonderful homes on the market, for under $100,000 and they are NOT FORECLOSURES! This Lebanon MO home is a prime example - updated and ready to go! Bring your "stuff" and enjoy all Lebanon MO has to offer.... Lebanon MO home for sale: Move in ready! (3 comments)

united country vip realty: So.. How much WILL the Sellers take? - 03/17/09 09:13 PM
It's no secret that I love to list property, be it a home, land, commercial building or farm in South Central Missouri. There is something about looking at a property, taking photos, listing the features and putting all the pieces of the puzzle together until we get to the closing table. The process is rather addictive! You may be surprised to learn the most popular question I receive as a listing agent - So... what is the Seller's bottom dollar? How low will they go? Pat Kennedy sums up why, as a buyer, you can cross that question off your list (2 comments)
united country vip realty: Lebanon MO area real estate moving again... my buyers found out the hard way! - 03/06/09 08:22 PM
What an incredible day!I am working with a wonderful couple that have three daughters. They transferred to the Lebanon Missouri area a few years ago and have been renting since then. Feeling they will stay here, without another transfer in the near future, they decided to buy. They have been to the bank, they have been pre-approved and have money in the bank for a down payment. All the pieces are in place to make an offer on a home.Earlier this week, we looked at a foreclosure in Phillipsburg Missouri. Our choices have been some what limited as they want to stay in (4 comments)

Griffin Georgia real estate broker Jessica Horton is more blunt than I am and has a way of adding humor to drive home her point. I recently wrote a post outlining four reasons why someone should sell now - Jessica gets right to the point for buyers and sellers - if you snooze you may just lose. Buyers are out there - If you're thinking of selling your Southwest Missouri property, this is a must read ---

I just had to share this with all my South West Missouri friends! Sharon Simms, a Broker/Realtor in Florida is celebrating a new listing - for more reason than one. The Seller is selling because she is getting married. Even though real estate seems to be changing daily before our eyes, there are good news stories out there! Not every home on the market is a short sale, a foreclosure or a hardship story. There are marraiges, births, retirements and job promotions too! Let us help you celebrate!

united country vip realty: Do I Really Need To Complete The Honey-Do List Before I sell my South Central Missouri Home? - 10/25/08 10:07 PM
My friend and fellow United Country broker, Irene Gaffigan in Vermont, has written a wonderful post about what projects to undertake when selling your home. Irene provides a short list of the project you DO want to complete and mentions a few that you should NOT complete! (Don't tile around the sky light in your bathroom!) I love what Irene has to say about paint - Paint is relatively inexpensive and can really give a home the pick-me-up it might need to mark the property SOLD! Most buyers love the look and even the smell of fresh paint! Thinking of Selling in Lebanon (6 comments)

united country vip realty: Georgia and Missouri Realtors Ask: Is real estate REALLY local? - 08/18/08 10:04 PM
Those of you that know me, know that I read - a lot. I read books, novels, magazines and blogs. I read the back of the cereal boxes and I read the local newspaper. Every once in a while I come across a blog that prompts the old "Boy, I wish I wrote that." Of course, that is because I am usually agreeing with the author. In this case the author is Lane Bailey, REALTOR & Car Guy from Georgia. (the state not the country) I often find myself in this discussion with people - yes, real estate is local and (2 comments)
united country vip realty: Selling your Southwest Missouri Home? Selling Tip #1 - 08/16/08 10:17 PM
You've decided it's time to sell your Southwest Missouri home. You've done some research and you've talked to family and friends.

united country vip realty: How Does Housing Recovery Act change buying Missouri Real Estate? - 08/15/08 11:31 PM
I've been doing a lot of reading lately on The Housing and Economic Recovery Act. If you haven't already taken a look, there is a ton of information and many components of the Act. My United Country partner in Vermont, Irene Gaffigan, recently summarized the Recovery Act. While Irene makes reference to Ludlow and Okemo Mountain VT home buyers, this information also applies to buyers in the Lebanon, Marshfield and Buffalo areas of Missouri. Thanks to Irene for such a great summary! After reading Irene's post, I do believe there are some strong points in the Act which will assist those (0 comments)
