What do you want to talk about?

By

Business has been good (read: busy) the past few months.  And while that's a great thing, it does mean that my blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside.  Matt pointed out that it's been a long time since I've written a blog post...  So I thought - tonight while he's studying for his upcoming CIA exam, I'll type up a new funny and brilliant post.

 

The problem with large spans of time between blog posts is.... What to write about?!?! 

 

Do you want to discuss St. Louis's hottest new listing? Stan Musial's former residence came on the market earlier this week:  http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/85-Trent-Dr_Ladue_MO_63124_M72958-42094?row=1  That Realtor seems to be making out pretty well with all of the media coverage on her new listing.  (Except, maybe, for the fact that every news report and written article is sure to point out that not only did Stan DIE in the house, but so did his wife.)  I don't know the disclosure rules for Missouri... do Missourians selling a house have to disclose a known death within the property?  What if translucent versions of Stan and Lil roam the expansive hallways at night?  (I could probably Google Missouri disclosure laws, but like I said, I'm busy with my own work on this side of the river:))

 

We could discuss the St. Louis area Realtor that won $1million playing the Powerball lottery:  http://fox2now.com/2013/05/19/powerball-jackpot-ticket-sold-in-fl-1-million-winners-in-mo/  

 

I could tell you that there are currently 29 houses in our MLS priced at or below a mere $10,000.  The least expensive home being listed for only $300. (And no, I did not forget a "0".) 

 

I could remind all my fellow St. Louis Metro-East area Realtors that 3 of my listings currently have nice selling bonuses in place!  (They're not $1million 'bonuses'...  But, I will at least promise not to surprise you with a news camera and microphone shoved in your face... when you haven't even fixed your hair yet.) 

 

Or... I could write more about our Florida condo updating/decorating... maybe elaborate on our approach to purchasing.  (And why I wish more buyers could just be like me.)

 

I'll take other topic suggestions, too...

Tara, you are so funny with your FUNNY and BRILLIANT post. Welcome back with odd facts about Stan Musial and his wife and the local real estate market I thought I would never know. Hey give me credit a baseball fan, I KNOW who Stan Musial is. BTW if YOU like baseball go see the movie 42, the Jackie Robinson story. My favorite movie this year so far!! Don't be a stranger with the blogging and good luck to Matt on the test.

I bet you have to keep busy to make a living in you're selling homes for less than 10K. What's the commission on a $300.00 home? A cup of coffee and maybe a muffin if you're nice. And is that CIA or CPA just wonderin?

I think the fact that Stan died at home is pretty much public record. Think I would still disclose. No surprises.
