Is now a good time to sell a home in Springfield MO?

Is now a good time to sell a home in Springfield MO? Selling a home in Springfield MO. What a difference a couple of years makes!  A few years ago the best-selling homes were foreclosures and short sales. If you were a buyer bargains were everywhere; especially if you were willing to do a little work to a distressed property. This dampened home prices across the board. Many homeowners who wanted to sell a home in Springfield MO sat on the sidelines and watched the market go lower and lower. New construction was nowhere to be found.  

Today’s real estate market in the Ozarks has shifted and is much better than before.

soldThis includes Ozark, Nixa, Highlandville, Rogersville, Willard, and Republic. Home sales in all price levels are up with homes priced $90,000 to $150,000 currently selling the best. The real estate market in Springfield is now a more balanced market, not really favoring buyers or sellers.  Of course location and condition are still very important as well as price.

We sell a lot of homes to locals and are still seeing people relocating to the area from other states. We are truly in exciting times. There are several reasons we sell so many homes in the area... Springfield and Branson Missouri have been appreciated by tourists for many years and it's also a great place to raise a family or retire.  The Ozark Mountains are a treasure and have trails for walking, jogging, biking and horseback riding.  The lakes and rivers only add to its exquisite beauty and are so much fun! All this makes our area very popular with people from all across the country. Folks come here to visit and decide to stay!

HI Betty and John - the market has changed here also, but the cold winter we had last year really did make it more difficult to get buyers to get outside. I hope it will be a little warmer this year, but I don't expect it.
