shell knob: METH BBQ? - 05/31/08 07:12 AM
NEW DANGER DISCLOSED
 
Reviewing the Seller's Disclosure Statement, which is a six page document in Missouri, I always pay attention to the Hazardous Substances portion.  This covers Lead, Asbestos, Mold, Radon and Methampetamine. 
Quite frankly, dealing with substantial middle class sellers, I have yet to see anyone check the Meth box.  I know it is a problem everywhere, and Shell Knob, MO is not exempt from individuals involved in this nasty drug, but now we apparently have to be aware of a severe danger at our bbq grills!
According to State Representative, David Sater, Meth cooks are stealing portable propane … (4 comments)

shell knob: HOME PICTURE OF THE DAY - 05/20/08 08:59 AM
 

 

Somehow I doubt that  pictures helped  to sell these homes
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 This is how the pictures were shown in our    multiple listing.  I have to wonder if they were indicative of the way the agents handled the entire listing process.  May be a reason the homes didn't sell?

shell knob: FISH BITE ON TABLE ROCK LAKE - 05/15/08 07:36 AM
Fish are still biting around Shell Knob, despite the fluctuating water levels with the spring flooding, reports Dennis Hamer.  Table Rock Lake temperatures are in the low 60's.
 

 Hamer says the Black bass and White bass fishing is still pretty good.  Most of the fish are being caught in the 12 - 20 ft range on pea gravel banks near spawning areas. 
The   bass are staging to spawn on the points.  It would be wise to work both sides of the points before going into coves.

Table Rock is still high at 929' and is not expected … (2 comments)

shell knob: CAN YOU REINVENT YOURSELF? - 05/09/08 07:45 AM
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
 
Say your phone's not ringing?  Ads generating no interest in that fantastic new listing that has just been sitting there with zero showings?  Maybe you need to stir up your imagination, as two of our REALTORS have recently in Shell Knob, MO
 

First a little background on our part of the Ozarks - March and April have given us record rains.  All of our lakes are at flood stage and seem to be destined to remain there until summer.  This means that many residents and tourists can't get to their boats because the docks … (1 comments)

shell knob: THERE'S TURTLES IN THEM THAR HILLS - 05/07/08 04:13 AM
TURTLE CROSSING QUESTION - WHY?
 

 It's springtime in the Ozarks, and one of our many signs of spring are  turtles on the roads.  Scientists can't seem to agree on WHY they cross the road at this time of year.  Probably one of natures strongest drives - food or sex. 
 
When we first relocated to  Shell Knob from the north, I was facinated by these determined little guys, and concerned for their welfare, so I wanted to stop and move them off the road. Probably better to just slow down and give them more room.

shell knob: ARE YOU A CRAIGSLIST FAN? - 04/26/08 08:37 AM
 
Can someone explain how Craigslist generates so much traffic?  I had read comments here on AR about Craigslist, but easily discounted them as more trouble than it was worth.  
 
However, at the encouragement of others in Shell Knob, I finally got with the program and put my listings on Postlets and Craigslist.    Boy, was I wrong!  
 
I had seven inquiries in the first 24 hours after listing!
 
 My question for you Craigslist participants, is how many of your leads do you actually convert and can prove, to Craigslist?
 
I had been receiving one or two leads a week from AR, and can … (21 comments)

shell knob: TIME TO SPRING FROM SHELL KNOB TO BRANSON - 04/26/08 07:22 AM
AREA RESIDENT DISCOUNTS
 
It's springtime in the Ozarks and that means it's time for us Shell Knob residents to take advantage of the discounts we're offered on Branson shows.
 
 In the spring, and again in late summer, many of the theatres and shows offer what is called "Area Resident Appreciation Shows" - in other words - 'Discounts'.
 
 
A great example is for the Andy Williams Show.  Residents only pay $5.00 until the end of April!  Folks, it doesn't get much better than this!

shell knob: SPRING SHORELINE CLEANUP ON TABLE ROCK LAKE DELAYED - 04/25/08 07:17 AM
Water water everywhere........Table Rock Lake levels are still over 15 feet above normal.  There is more rain in the forecast making the scheduled shoreline cleanup difficult and possibly dangerous.

shell knob: DO HOME SHOWS SELL HOUSES? - 04/20/08 08:29 AM
 
Shell Knob, Missouri recently had it's annual Home Show. My company, Tri-Lakes REALTORS, participated. It was great.
Being a small, almost rural area, we don't have a big exhibition center. The show takes place each year in the elementary school gym.   We are a retirement and second home area, centering around activities on Table rock Lake.
 
You meet and greet friends, neighbors, past clients and competitors.
Hand out fly swatters, ballpoint pens, and our new way to get our business cards into potential buyers or sellers hands, a hand-made flower seed packet with our cards stapled on each one.
 
The question is, … (4 comments)

shell knob: BASS BOATS ARE FLYING AROUND SHELL KNOB - 04/17/08 08:58 AM
FLOODS AND FISHINGRecent heavy rains and floods have kept spring fishing at bay on Table Rock Lake, Shell Knob, MO  Nothing can keep a fisherman's spirit down when spring spawn is on however, and the bass boats are literally flying by as I write.
 

One of the biggest problems for anglers since the flooding is getting to the dock without having to swim out to  their boats.  The lake rose higher than most docks were set for.  So the docks are surrounded by water.  Many marinas transport their clients to the dock via a smaller craft.
 
We've had two nice days in … (0 comments)

shell knob: FLOODS POSTPONE TABLE ROCK CLEAN-UP - 03/31/08 07:21 AM
Table Rock Lake Shoreline Cleanup postponed -  rescheduled for May 3
Due to the unprecedented amount of rain we have had in the Ozarks recently, lake levels have risen greatly and have covered most of the shoreline around Table Rock Lake.
The major Table Rock Lake Shoreline Cleanup date is therefore postponed. Instead of taking place April 5, it is scheduled for May 3.  Shell Knob area residents can pick up their supplies at the Chamber Office. 
 
People can still clean up areas of the shoreline anytime, and place the orange trash bags in any of the Corps of Engineers park dumpsters. However, … (0 comments)

shell knob: CORPS LINE PROTECTS SHELL KNOB PROPERTY - 03/27/08 09:38 AM
 FLOOD DAMAGE LIGHT IN SHELL KNOB
It seemed almost  biblical as the rain continued coming down on the Ozarks last week. It set a record  in Shell Knob, MO. of 6 to 8 inches in two days.
 
Selling property in Shell Knob on Table Rock Lake, one of the commonest questions is about the "Corps Line".  Never has the reason for that line been more  apparent than now, with Table Rock Lake 15 feet above normal. 
 
Most artificial lakes with a dam, come under the jurisdiction of the Army Corps of Engineers.  A Corps survey of all land touching the lake, determines the 'take … (0 comments)

TABLE ROCK LAKE A FISHING/RETIREMENT  DESTINATION
 
Spring fishing in Shell Knob, Missouri has started and goes hand in glove with house hunting.  Bass tournaments are underway despite the heavy rains and flooding we've experienced. 
 
 
Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake are being discovered by anglers and they then start to look for permanent cottages or retirement homes.  As a Shell Knob Realtor, I am seeing the phones ringing more frequently and potential buyers walking in to our office.
