Emerald Point on Table Rock Lake Shows Construction Starts

I was out at Emerald Point yesterday showing one of my listings and noticed a few new homes being built in Emerald Point; I think four to be exact. For those of you who know Emerald Point, it is a great upscale gated lakefront community that has sweeping views of Table Rock Lake and is only 10 minutes south of Branson.

Anyhow, I was rather excited to see builders going forward and starting to build again. I think this says something about the area and where we are relative to the larger US markets — that our supply -demand fundamentals here in the Branson area never really got that far out of whack.

We have 7 million + visitors per year, of which many consider retiring to the area. Since we only have in the 35,000 person range as a population to begin with here in Taney County, we can’t help but grow even if only 1/2 of 1/2 of 1/2 a percent of our visitors decide to stay. That’s one reason I’m optimistic (but still realistic!) on the future of real estate in Branson, Mo.
