joplinhomesales: Fix Your Leaky Roof Vents Without Getting a Roofer - 07/19/11 03:26 AM
I built my house in 1999 and I've already had at least 3 of the roof vents on my house start leaking. This is because the rubber seal used on the flashing dries out in the hot sun and cracks allowing water to penetrate the opening left where the seal once was. To fix this in the past I've had to hire a roofer to come out and replace the flashing because it involved getting the flashing out then back under the shingles. The one time I tried to do it myself I just messed the shingles up. Today while looking … (1 comments)

joplinhomesales: Joplin Market Wrap Up for 2010 - 01/07/11 05:20 AM

Another year has come and gone. The good news for home sellers is that it appears that the market has bottomed out, the bad news is that it doesn't appear to be gaining ground, at least not yet. Here are some numbers worth noting.
Listings: In 2002 there were 922 new listings that came on the market during the year. That number has gone up every year until it peaked and leveled off at 1759 in 2007 and 2008. The number of new listings has fallen in 2009 and 2010 with only 1667 new listings coming on the market in … (1 comments)

joplinhomesales: New Owner, Old Occupant Won't Leave - 09/29/10 06:25 AM
So my wife has a closing at 1pm today. Only problem is the occupant, who is the brother of the owner, doesn't seem to want to leave. As of this morning he's still in the house and hasn't even taken out the trash much less moved his backside out of the house. What now?

joplinhomesales: Introducing the KW Stimulus Program - 09/23/10 08:28 AM
Missed your chance to take advantage of the government’s last real estate stimulus package? Want to learn how to optimize your buying power? Introducing the KW Stimulus.  Sellers working with the HayesTeam are making their homes more attractive to buyers by offering to help buyers buy down the interest rate on their new home loan.  It can make a big difference in the monthly payment, save  tens of thousands of dollars in interest over the life of the loan and help you qualify for a higher priced home than you might have otherwise.
How does this work you ask? Here’s an … (0 comments)

joplinhomesales: Market Numbers for the Joplin Area and Their Impact on Positioning Your Home - 09/19/10 03:52 PM

These graphs plot the new listings on an annual basis vs the sold listings on an annual basis for different market areas in and around Joplin MO.  As you can see from 2002 to 2005 the new listings and the solds were pretty even but from 2006 forward the gap got considerably wider. The other thing of note here is that the total number of sold properties was very steady through 2007 then drops off in 2008 and 2009. Since there are less buyers out there currently than there were prior to 2008 and a ton more inventory … (0 comments)

joplinhomesales: Another Succesful Week, I Guess - 07/18/10 09:08 AM
Sometimes when I'm in a Board of Alderman meeting here in Carl Junction it seems that we've likely done the best we could when all sides of an issue leave mad because we didn't do things the way they wanted. This whole week has been kind of that way.
I posted what I thought was an interesting cartoon from 1948 a couple of days or so back that got me called basically stupid because my grammar and spelling wasn't correct and I showed my belief in God. I was attacked vehemently by one person in particular for being as conservative as … (10 comments)
