It has been a while since I updated this. The good news is the fall of 2010 was busy and we have good activity for the beginning of 2011. The buyers are confident and are looking for that good deal.
This fall we worked with buyers that we had not seen since the fall of 2007. They are making plans to retire or are retired with the Branson area as their future destination. These buyers have financial ability to purchase what they want and know this is the time to buy it right. They do not need to wait on their current property to sell and are looking for quality over cheap. That is good news!
Sellers are understanding the market and know if they really need to sell, it has to be priced aggressive and in good repair. We have property that is not being shown and other properties going under contract is less than 30 days. Showings are limited but there are buyers. That is refreshing.
We have many things that need to happen before we have the big turn around in the real estate market but I feel 2011 will start the process. I expect things to be much improved throughout the year into 2012.
Talk to you soon,
