Springfield Mo Real Estate Market Report

12/31/2012

 Springfield Mo Real Estate Market Report - December 2012

2012 became the turning point for the down market for Springfield Mo real estate.  This year the market increased with sales and decreased in listings.  Haven't seen this in over 5 years.

2012 Sales By City

What this means to sellers is that market value will begin to increase in 2013.  If listings continue to drop and sales continue to increase, it will become a sellers market once more. 

For buyers, low interest rates continue, but the days of a "great deal" may be behind us.  Buyers will now pay full price or or higher to compete with other buyers for the same home.

As of December 1, 2012, the average list price was $181,242 compared to 2011 at $175,685.

Average sale price is now $109,900.


Let's look forward to a great 2013.   Call or email Kay or a member of her team to list and sell your Springfield Mo real estate in 2013.  Happy New Year!

Locked Out Again On A Springfield Mo Short Sale, But I Have The Key

Locked Out Again On A Springfield Mo Short Sale, But I Have The Key

My morning started out with a call from a seller letting me know they had been locked out of their home, my sign was down and the home had been winterized (according to the papers in the window).Locked Out of a Springfield Mo Short Sale


I've worked for almost 3 months on getting the loan approved for the short sale.  We're very close to getting approval, so the seller was headed over to the home to clean it up and get it ready for inspections, when she found she was locked out.


More often then not, the management company will call me and help me gain access to the home.  This particular company never called or contacted me to let me know they had rekeyed the home or winterized it.


Never Fear!  After working foreclosures and short sales for many years, I've kept several keys.  Sure enough, I had the key to open the house.

Tomorrow I will contact the bank and let them know that once again I've been locked out on a Springfield Mo short sale.  And I'll thank them for winterizing the home.  I know it's their job, but a little head's up would nice.

Springfield Missouri Free Home Evaluation | Broker Price Opinion | Comparative Market Analysis - Do They All Mean The Same

Want to know what your home is worth?  Getting a free home evaluation is the same as a comparative market analysis, an appraisal, or a broker price opinion?  Yes and No!Free Springfield Mo market analysis


More homeowners call it an appraisal.  Banks usually order appraisals to evaluate real estate to determine a value in order to loan money to purchase or refinance.


Real Estate Agents call it a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA for short).  Or it can be a home evaluation.  Both accomplish the same results - evaluating real estate to determine a price.


Broker Price Opinions are usually completed by real estate agents for Banks to determine a price to refinance, repossess or to complete a short sale.

Nixa Mo Market Report September 2011

The market sales for Nixa Missouri this year has had a major change.  Compared to 2010, the sales for 2011 have decreased by 66 sales. 

Nixa Mo September Sales By Value Market Report


This is a huge change.  For sellers, homes between $100,000 - $200,000 in 2010 were much happier than sellers in the same price range for 2011. 

Once again, this change could be, in part, a decrease due to no government assistance or rebates this year as compared to 2010.

Higher priced homes have also taken a hit.  In 2011, there have been no sales over $500,000. 

Nixa Mo is located south of Springfield Missouri approximately 6 miles.  They have Triple AAA rated Schools.
