BUDGET - can you really afford that dream vacation home?  Is this going to be a profitable investment for you down the road?STYLE OF HOME - Are there covenants or restrictions for the development your lot is in, or a county planning commission that restricts the style or square footage of the house?  If you are building in an area that requires a committee … (0 comments)

table rock lake: REAL ESTATE DEATH SPIN - 05/05/07 09:08 AM
 SALES DOWN.....LAND PRICE UP?
 
If we in the real estate business are supposed to be in such a death spin,  why are prices on land going up?  Almost daily the media is reporting our supposed loses's and solemnly (do you notice the commentator's voice dropping to an almost  funeral directors  tone )declare the newest bad news.
I am in the midst of searching for land/lots for a Maryland buyer coming in next week (an AR lead by the way).  They think their eastern home will be selling for about $600,00, I'm told, so they are looking at upscale real estate in the … (4 comments)

table rock lake: IT LIFTS YOU UP - 04/30/07 09:17 AM
 AN UPLIFTING TOPIC- BOAT LIFTS 
Boat docks have been a big item in Shell Knob real estate lately, as we ease into the summer mindset of sun and water.  I sold a lovely waterfront lot Friday and there was a nice new dock with slips available, so this client wanted to secure a slip in the dock for their boat.  The next question was about boat lifts, which of course, lift you and your boat up. 
How do you protect your boat when you are absent from your cottage or summer home?  The answer is to buy a boat-lift. This item will keep … (0 comments)

table rock lake: DEMAND EXCEEDS SUPPLY IN SHELL KNOB - 04/26/07 05:59 PM
BOAT SLIPS SLIPPING AWAY
Recently I discussed the problems of  finding boat slips and boat docks on Table Rock Lake.  For the past two weeks I have been advertising several waterfront lots I have listed in the Shell Knob area.  The ads have resulted in my receiving several calls and emails from potential buyers. 

 
So what's the problem?  I wanted new clients, of course, and I now have 20 new potential buyers wanting to buy  waterfront lots.  The problem is that these lots do not have any boatdocks. 
Most people not only want to have a great view of the water, they … (0 comments)

table rock lake: HARD WATER HELPER - 04/21/07 09:46 AM
HELPFUL HINT FOR DISHWASHERS
 We have heavy concentration of lime in our water around Table Rock Lake, so  water conditioners are quite helpful, but if you don't have a water conditioner, here is a great way to clean the build-up inside the dishwasher.
I just love inexpensive solutions for difficult problems.  Don't you?  This is one of the greatest I've seen for taking off a build-up of lime or even rust accumulating inside a dishwasher from the hard water.

Buy six packages of  dry generic lemonade mix , unsweetened.  Put them in the soap dispenser of the machine, and run it through a … (15 comments)

table rock lake: TO DOCK OR NOT TO DOCK - 04/15/07 08:04 AM
A BOAT DILEMABoats can be a problem.  What's that old axiom?  'A boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into?'  I don't think I have that exactly right, but the fact remains that you buy a boat to put it in the water and go boating.  
The problem arises when you are through boating for that particular day, where do you put it?  As a Shell Knob real estate agent, one of the first questions I get from clients is "Where is the boat dock?"Getting a boat on and off a trailer continually can be a … (5 comments)

table rock lake: 7 STEPS TO INSTALLING SEPTIC SYSTEMS - 04/04/07 04:05 AM
SHELL KNOB & STONE COUNTY PERMITS
 
 
In times past, persons wanting to build a summer cottage on Table Rock Lake, would sink a 50 gallon oil drum in a hole in the ground, and call that their septic system.  This obviously turned into a problem as leaching from the barrel could contaminate their well water, or drain into the lake.  That has all changed.  As a Shell Knob Realtor, I'm happy to report that the Stone County Health Department requires more now.
A site evaluation is required in Stone County for every septic system needed,  This evaluation must be done by … (2 comments)

GRAB YOUR LAPTOP AND FISHING POLE
 
    This comes from the Missouri Department of Conservation, and I have to question if they are giving the fish miniature aquatic laptops?   Doesn't seem like the fish will have a chance now.
 
 
  "Anglers across Missouri are lining the lake shores once again for spring fishing. Now there's a new way to find out where the fish are biting.      The Missouri Department of Conservation has a new online, interactive map of several regional lakes.  They pin-point these "fish-attracting" habitats that are sure to give anglers a better chance of catching "the big one".      A lot of … (0 comments)

table rock lake: NEED A SHELL KNOB WATERFRONT HOME? - 03/19/07 08:07 AM
 
HAVING A WATERFRONT VIEW ISN'T A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH -
IT IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT!!
 
The earth has more parts of it covered with water, than landmass sticking out of it.  You might think then that everyone who wants it, could have their chunk of water frontage, wouldn't you?  Well no, of course not.  If that were the case, then we would be on just one long pretzel of land circleing the globe surrounded by water.   At any rate, God is not making anymore, and unless a manmade dam is created, the amount of  water frontage available pretty … (0 comments)

table rock lake: GOT YOUR SHOW TICKETS YET? - 03/17/07 07:16 AM
Branson Area Appreciation Time 
Platters Review     
 
Springtime heralds the arrival of new shows in Branson, Missouri.  For Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake residents, that means discounted ticket prices.  Discounted prices are called Area Appreciation shows and are offered to locals to make up for residents experiencing additional traffic and congestion during the height of tourist season, which I, as a realtor in Shell Knob appreciate. 
The window of opportunity to see shows at reduced prices is short, usually less than a week, but various offerings are spread out for most of the month of March.    It is a little like … (0 comments)

TABLEROCK BASS ARE BITING
 
 Time to get the fishing tackle out the fish are calling.
March 1st kicked off the Trout Fishing season.  And in this neck of the woods, that almost qualifies as a national holiday.  Cassville, Missouri, just west of Shell Knob declares a school holiday on the first.  That is so that all the natives and visitors can stand knee deep in freezing waters at the Roaring River State Park  to fish when the  hatchery opens for the first time of the season in hopes of getting a record making trout.
March is also the beginning of fishing on Table … (0 comments)

table rock lake: THE SECRET TIME TO SHOP BRANSON, MISSOURI - 02/14/07 08:24 AM
OFF SEASON IS GOOD TRAVEL SEASON IF YOU LEARN THE EASY ROUTES TO TAKE
Since moving to Shell Knob from a large metropolitan area, I have become allergic to traffic.  My favorite time of year is from October through April, because that is when only full-time residents are around.  There is no waiting in line anywhere, whether that is for groceries, gas or the post office.
This is also the best time to go to Branson for shopping or restaurants.  And Branson is a GREAT place for both, with discount malls, specialty shops. etc and more opening everyday.  There are two main ways … (0 comments)

The Spring Real Estate Market in Shell KnobYou have decided that you want to buy a lake house in Shell Knob this year.  You've heard about a drop in home sales, the over inflated real estate  market is in a slump, and it sounds like bargains to be had, or so all the news  media people would have us believe.   Dollar signs flash before your eyes.  People will be begging you to take their property off their hands, right?    Wellllll ....maybe,  and then again,  maybe not.

SHELL KNOB - 65747-QUIET END?Why is Shell Knob called the 'quiet' end of Table Rock Lake?  Shell Knob is a family destination for vacations or retirement.  It's the place you go to to relax, lay back and enjoy the tranquility of open waters, peaceful nights with a sky full of stars.  The town sits past  the mid-way part of the lake, which travels from Branson, MO at the Corps of Engineers dam, past Kimblering City, then branches in one direction to Cape Fair, but continuing on and taking alot of turns, finally reaches Shell Knob.  It's 745 miles of shoreline, twisting … (6 comments)
