Christian County Yearly MLS Statistics for October 2007
Living and working the Springfield and Christian County area for the past 30 years, I've seen and experienced the changes and growth that is happening in the county. Needless to say, I'm very proud of the community I live in.
Springfield Mo real estate is made up of several different counties including Christian County. Nixa and Ozark are the larger cities that make up Christian County. Clever, Highlandville, Billings, Spokane, Fremont Hills, Sparta and the newest village of Saddlebrooke make up the rest.
According to the Christian County website, Christian county is the fastest growing county in the state of Missouri.
Real estate sales have varied very little from 2006 to 2007. New schools are opening throughout the county. Many families that work in Springfield, commute from Christian County.
In 2006, 3351 homes sold from January to September, compared to 2007, with 3200 homes selling. One of the main reasons for lower sales is the ice storm that hit the first of the year. Hopefully, we won't have that bad weather this year.
Buyers wanting to make a good real estate decision now have many homes to choose from. I remember the saying......buy low.....sell high! Well, this is the time to buy. Interest rates are low. Great loan programs are still available to qualified buyers. Call me or a member of the "K" Team today. We have several bank owned properties available along with beautiful homes for sale.
