What do you think of loudanner.com?

I’d like to take a minute to ask you, the reader and potential real estate buyer or seller, what you think of my site and the information I provide. Do you find the site helpful and informative, or dull and boring? Is there other information that you’d like to see me write about that I currently haven’t? How is the functionality and look — appealing and useful, ugly and clunky (more…)

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.

More condo developments in trouble?

As I was trolling the internet for info on a certain condo development, I happen upon the quarterly report of a Springfield based regional bank. Since I had used keywords that had nothing to do with the bank in my google search, curiosity got the best of me and I had to figure out why it came up in the results. Google was spot on, as deep in the document it was noted that at least one condo development in the area who’s $9.2 loan is held by this specific bank is indeed in risk of being foreclosed upon. Using what I know about that bank and what condos are currently being built around the Tri Lakes area, there’s a very good chance that there could be some price-reduced inventory on Table Rock Lake condos in the near future (especially on Indian Point). Just a heads up for those of you who would like to snag a lakefront condo on the cheap. Let me know if you would like more info on this topic. 417.337.1627
