If the brochure box is empty….they notice.   If their brochures still shows the original price after two reductions….they notice.   If their agent hasn’t done an Open House in six months (or ever)…..they notice.   If no feedback cometh after showings….they notice.   If there haven’t been any showings in a month…..they notice.   If their Craigslist ad hasn’t been refreshed…..they notice.   If their agent hasn’t updated them on market activity…..they notice.   If the only time they hear from their agent is when he calls to ask for a price reduction…..they notice.   Just because a seller doesn’t complain doesn’t means he happy.  And just because he’s not complaining to his agent doesn’t mean he’s keeping quiet elsewhere.  If his agent doesn’t seem to care about selling his home…..the sell...

  When it's time to sell your home or condo , it's very easy to get caught in the overpricing trap. After all, who doesn’t want top price for their home? We all know that prices have dropped dramatically in recent years. Given that, it's logical that the asking price you set could be higher than "fair market value."  Unfortunately, you probably won't realize it's too high until much later.   Here are just a few of the disappointments you'll be facing with an overpriced house:   Showings of your home will probably be slow.  The public recognizes overpricing.  People buy by comparison.  They compare square feet, bedrooms, baths, garages, year home was built, location, etc.   Some prospects who are attracted may be the wrong ones. They will be attracted because they're looking for a home ...

Last week I wrote about the importance of knowing Ameren's boundary line if you own or are thinking of buying lakefront property here at the Lake of the Ozarks. Many of you have been asking if there is a "use" easement for the property owner between the take line and the water's edge? There are Ameren (Union Electric) easements for many lakefront properties, in fact, in some areas Ameren only holds easements rights. Typically there are easement rights that are conveyed to property owners in areas where Ameren holds fee title. Those rights are subject to the Federal FERC license, shoreline management policies and guidelines and the ordinances and policies of appropriate state and federal agencies. For instance, the easement may state that landowners have the right to construct improvemen...

Owning a lakefront property at the Lake of the Ozarks has many perks: great views, lake access, swimming, fishing and boating right at your back door; but if you are not careful about knowing your property's boundary lines, you could end up the lake without a paddle! Imagine, after years of living in your lakefront home, discovering that you don't own all of "your" property. As a matter of fact, the dock you put in and the patio you built by the water's edge are encroachments on someone else's property, and that someone else just happens to be Ameren UE. If you are a lakefront property owner at the Lake of the Ozarks you NEED to know Ameren's property boundary lines before making any improvements to your land. Homeowners whose property falls within the area in which Ameren project bound...

As we mentioned in an earlier post, this is a great time to be buying a home.  With the economy still wobbling a little, there are some great deals out there.  Mortgage rates are still much lower than a year ago.  Depending on where you live in Missouri and other variables, there are property tax credits for home owners.  If you are a buyer, the time is ripe to make a move.  However, you might find that you are seller.  Perhaps you need to sell a home before you can purchase the "home of your dreams".   Maybe you are required to relocate due to business or some other reason.  Don't despair!  There are several things you can do that will enable you to get the best price for your property.   1. Get a Home Inspection. While some states require certain inspections be done when putting a ho...

If you are thinking about a second home or considering buying a luxury home - now is certainly a great time to do it!  Prices are lower now than they have been for a long time.   There are some excellent deals to be had!  Higher end homes are often above the price ceilings for tax credits and are not moving quickly in this economy, so sellers may be willing to negotiate with you. The Lake of the Ozarks area is a beautiful site with many appealing homes, but while considering buying a new home or a second home, there are some things to keep in mind. The Wall Street Journal recently ran an article listing ten top things to keep in mind when buying a luxury home or a second home.   Planning ahead and thinking things through will prevent regret down the road. One thing that could lead to r...

The building of Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks brought people to the area and created a solid economic base during the time of the Great Depression.  Today, the economy continues to do well along the historic Bagnell Dam Strip.  With so much to do and see along "The Strip", locals and visitors alike continue to flock to the area. At the entrance to the strip a giant Indian stands with an upraised arm.  He is one of the notorious "muffler men" created in the 1960's for various gas station chains.  Made entirely of fiberglass, this chief once held a giant muffler as advertisement for the services of his particular station.  He now stands guard at the entrance to Bagnell Dam Strip, welcoming guests to the fun and entertainment that awaits. Currently there are 95 stores along The Strip ...

Close to Camdenton, Missouri and far beneath the ground lies the most beautiful, natural wonderland that any could imagine.  Bridal Cave, located in the heart of Lake of the Ozarks has been rated one of the most scenic caves in America.   Bridal Cave boasts more onyx formations than any other cave or cavern.  Each day visitors are able to tour the pristine beauty of stalactites and stalagmites that are thousands of years old.  The recently discovered underground waters of the crystal clear Mystery Lake is one of the highlights of the tour.  One of the most interesting things about this underground treasure is how the cave got its name. The Osage Nation, a tribe of Native Americans moved into the area that is now Lake of the Ozarks in the early 1600's.  French explorers, Jacques Marquet...

Whether you see golf as the ideal vacation pastime or as part of your lifestyle, one of the great allurements of Lake of the Ozarks is golf.  Sporting more than 13 golf courses, Lake of the Ozarks has become known as the golf mecca of the Midwest.  Championship courses have been cut into the rocks, hills and wooded areas to provide a challenge for golfers at every skill level.  Bay View's 9-hole, hilly course provides a unique experience for a reasonable rate.  Other courses, such as Bear Creek Valley, meander through the forests, meadows and valleys of Lake of the Ozarks country.  The Hidden Lakes Golf Course at Tan-Tar-A Resort was ranked by USA Today as one of the best 9-hole courses in the US.  The resort also provides a marina and an indoor waterpark - providing fun for the entire ...

Follow my blog and learn more about Lake area news. lakenewsonline.com Posted Feb 24, 2010 @ 06:26 AM Sunrise Beach, Mo. - The blast rattled windows and shook walls of homes all the way across the cove and on parts of Shawnee Bend. Debris littered neighbors' roofs and streets. It knocked a large shed that housed a tractor-trailer off its foundation and bowed one of its walls. There is little left of a home in St. Croix Estates, off Lake Road F-8 near Sunrise Beach. An explosion around 11:20 a.m. Tuesday left the home a pile of rubble...
