I began my real estate career 8 months later in November of 2016 at Keller Williams.  We were a small office then.  I think there may have been around 30 agents. But over the years agents in Joplin realize that clearly this is a company where you want to work.  We have grown to an office of over 120 agents.  Keller Williams Realty of SWMO is the number one real estate office in the area.  Keller Williams is the number one real estate company in the country. There are some very good reason for this growth.  If you are thinking about a career in real estate, I would be happy to talk to you and tell you why this is.

JHAP Funds Are Running Out

JHAP, Joplin Homebuyers Assistance Program, announced this week that funds for this enormously popular loan program that can give buyers up to $30000 for the purchase of a home are running out.

There are 50 spots left but 25 people have already made appointments. After that people can go on a waiting list until the funds are gone.

To qualify for this program, you must meet income requirements, be eligible for a home loan, and purchase a home that meets the JHAP guidelines.

So act fast and give me a call to find out more about how you can use this program to purchase a purchase a home.

 

Said No Buyer Ever

Our mild weather so far this winter has prompted buyers to start their search for a new home; so I thought I would repost a blog of mine from a couple of years ago.   When considering putting your home on the market,  keep in mind some things that buyers might never say about a home.

For instance:

It is so creative they way the home owners have used different carpet in every room.

That stale lingering cigarette smell reminds me of dear ol’granny.

The huge crack in this wall will make a perfect place to store old newspapers.

How do they get pictures all over the wall to look like a qwerty keyboard?  (The tech savvy buyer obviously)

I hope that ripped sofa is included in the sale.

There is a trash dump at the back of the property?  Yippee, the kids will have a place to play!

With the washer being upstairs and the dryer downstairs, I can train for the Olympics at home!

I love the use of recycle plastic bags to fill in the space between the wall and the floor. (The eco-minded buyer obviously)

Anyway, you may have some of your own to add.

But if you want to see some homes where the comments are Oooo’s and Ahh’s check out my featured properties. Or if you would like me to stop by and give you suggesting for staging your home, just give me a call. 417-825-1042

And have a great day.

Main Street, Joplin, MO

Joplin comes in tenth on a list of the top twelve towns that have the best main streets in Missouri on the website onlyinyourstate.com.

10.1.-Joplin-700x511

Pretty good for a small town that does not have a river front.  Joplin’s has made Main Street a feast for the senses. From the well kept flowers in the summer months to the beautiful Christmas lights right now, Joplin’s pride shows.  Several beautiful murals, great places to shop and  excellent cuisine make Main Street Joplin a destination must.

Make sure to come and visit.  And if you decide to buy property while you are here, give me a call. 417-825-1042.
