Best Time to Sell??

When Is the Best Time to Sell a House?    I get this question a lot.  I wish there was a “magic” answer.  Years ago it used to be said that the “hot” market was May to September.  But in the Central Missouri region where we live, it can vary.  Yes, spring and summer are […]

How Important are Reviews to You?

I was wondering what thought a potential buyer or seller puts into the process when deciding which real estate agent  to work with….. Do you call the agent who has the listing? Or just the one that happens to answer the phone at the real estate office? Or do you look at the REVIEWS posted […]

Did you know?

I learned a really cool thing today…saw it in the newspaper, the Moberly Monitor Index! The Moberly library has launched an online legal form service for its patrons.
