The market report for April, 2009.  A little late, but I want to make sure I keep up with the market.  Looking at the numbers, the market dropped in April, compared to 2008.  Missing figures are due to them not being reported from the Springfield MLS Statistics.

springfield mo real estate: A Tulip For My Dutchman! Happy Birthday! - 05/24/09 03:41 AM
My husband planted this beautiful Tulip tree ten years ago.  It was about 3' tall back then.  Sitting on the deck, we could see over the horizon and would joke about how long it would take for the tree to grow up.
Tulip trees are rare in Missouri. The Tulip Tree Is one of the most magnificent and valuable trees in North America.  It is the state tree of Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina.  Tulip trees grow 80-100' tall and 40' wide.
Each year we have watched and waited for the beautiful flowers and finally last year, we had a few small buds. The … (2 comments)

springfield mo real estate: Springfield Mo Real Estate - February 2009 - 04/12/09 12:47 PM
Springfield Missouri real estate is seeing many changes in the market.  They say our part of the country is always the last to feel the bad economy and the first to pull out.
Because our market never had a huge increase in appreciation of Springfield Mo homes, our prices have not had to adjust as much as other parts of the country.  Don't get me wrong......prices have fallen.  Sales have slowed, however, the state of Missouri has been able to use the stimulus package for first time home buyers and jump start the market.

The Springfield Mo real estate market is over for 2008.  Across the country, prices have dropped, foreclosures have increased and short sales have become one of the best ways to market your home.
I received an email recently from a Springfield resident requesting I continue with updates on the Springfield Residential market.  (Careful of what you write about......you never know who's watching!  LOL!
Rumor has it that the market is very slow, Springfield homes are not selling and the market reports are depressing.  But that's for those consumers that are not willing to readjust their prices to refect today's market.
