I have an amazingly beautiful home listed just south of Nixa at 386 Plumtree Dr., that is surrounded by gorgeous woods and scenery. Tonight, I received the following email from my seller: I was cooking steaks on the grill tonight.  I went out to check them and this guy was staring at me when I opened the door then ran off.  I told the family about him and they came out to look and he happened to be coming back up the stairs.  I grabbed the camera and when I got back he was sitting out in the grass posing for us.  He stayed around for a while so we shared some leftover Thanksgiving turkey with him.  See the attached photos of our guest and new friend. He's an amazing guy!!!!      This is highly unusual considering red fox are very shy of humans.  This one obviously is a fan of my seller'...

Nixa Missouri Real Estate Market Statistics as of Oct 31, 2009. As you can see, the absorption rates vary widely by price range. The lower price ranges are much lower which indicates a more balanced market or even trending towards a seller's market. Note: one price range had no sales this month so the rate could not be calculated. The higher priced homes are still a buyer's market with much higher supply than demand. If you would like to know what the rate is in your neighborhood or specific price range give us a call today! Nixa Missouri Real Estate

I've seen a lot of wolly worms this year, and they are really wolly! Does that mean we are in for a cold and snowy winter? Or is it something about the stripes? I can't remember. I grew up on a dairy farm and my mom and dad always believed that kind of stuff. He would only plant the garden during the right phase of the moon and he read the Farmer's Almanac. All I can say is we always had a lot of fresh vegetables from the garden!

The Nixa Missouri Crimson Corps marching band won their first overall title at the Ozarko band festival last weekend at Missouri State University! In the preliminary round they won first in division and outstanding color guard. In the finals they won the overall championship. Congratulations Nixa, way to go!

On September 14, 2009, the Nixa Board of Alderman passed a law that requires drivers and passengers to wear their seatbelts while driving through Nixa.  While it's only common sense that one should wear their seatbelt, what is significant about this ordinance is that it gives the Nixa Police Department the right to pull you over if they suspect you are not complying.  It also give them the right to issue a citation based solely on seatbelt usage....REGARDLESS OF AGE. Only one council member cast a dissenting vote, Kevin Elmer.  His reasoning was that a seatbelt violation should not constitute the right to inspect or detain.  Statistics were used as arguments for the ordinance.  According to a representative from St. John's Hospital, only 62% of Nixa residents treated at the hospital fol...

I recently listed a couple of duplexes and have really been thinking about what a great deal and investment they would be for a first time home buyer to live in. Take the one pictured for example, it is in a pooled subdivision and each side offers almost 1400 sq-ft, 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, a large yard and a 2 car garage. This one is listed at $169,895. If you plan on occupying one side you can get an FHA for 96.5% of the purchase price. Figuring a 5.65% interest rate the total payment including taxes and insurance would be about $1234.50. If you subtract the rent from your tenant of $675 per month then your total payment is only $559.50. You would have to spend $75,000 or less to get an equivalent payment on a single family residence and you wouldn't be able to find anything comparable...

In college basketball, they are calling this rivalry week.  I attended Kansas University and I am a die hard JAYHAWK FAN - Rock chalk Jayhawk go KU!!   I have lived in Nixa, Missouri for 15 years now.   There are quite a few Mizzou fans around here.    Last night KU played MU (quite a rivalry).  When they aren't playing against each other I do root for MU.  Just a side note to this also, my daughter, who is a senior in high school is planning on attending MU next year and is going to tryout for cheerleader there!  If any of you happened to watch the game last night, KU led by 14 points at the half and led for 99% of the game - they lost 60 to 62!  I'll get over it eventually and have already had a few phone calls asking me if I am OK.   Tonight the Nixa, Missouri High School basketball ...
