Last summer, a popular Ozark lake was later discovered (after the big Memorial Day weekend) to be heavily contaminated with E coli....a nice way of describing human poop.  Accordingly, our state and a few counties have begun to put emphasis on the antiquated and poorly built private waste disposal systems that surround the Ozark lakes among the hills like the side of a toilet bowl....with each heavy rain acting as a "flush". When my client called to schedule his home inspection, I recommended to him that he have the septic system inspected as well. "The house was built in 2007 and the septic was installed at that time.  Do you really think I should spend the money?" he asked. I explained to him that Stone County, Missouri, will require each home seller (starting this time next year) to ...

Gearing up for the "Oinklawn Downs". Hmmmm! Most people would ask" the what"? Yes, the Oinklawn Downs....Pig Races. These are held on the second weekend of June every year. People gather from all around here to sponsor a pig, eat a great meal, socialize, and shop the booths.There are activities other than the races, including parade, crafts, barbecue, street dance and tractor show. Bring your families and come join in!

I am a native of Cape Fair, Missouri.  When I began my Real Estate career 5 years ago, I researched my area to see what naturally was selling. I have seen a huge change in the Cape Fair area market in the last 4 years.  Lot sales in Countrytime Estates and Walnut Springs Subdivisions are increasing , thus new construction homes are going up. What a great time to buy, lake properties are still our niche, holding our market strong. More people are coming out to the country, quiet area away from the traffic. Cape Fair is 10 miles from shopping in Branson West and 16 miles west of Branson. Cape Fair will continue on its upward growth, it is a great little community on Table Rock Lake. Time to take a look.

Stone arrived about the same time, and it was his family that the county was later named after.Of vital importance to the civil war, they built a powder mill across Flat Creek.  It was the first gunpowder mill west of the Mississippi River.  Bat Guano, a key ingredient of gunpowder, was mined from a nearby cave in what is now known as Bear Den Cove.  Cap...
