How to Begin Real Estate Investing The Correct Way | Sunset Realty

Thu, Jul 12th 2018 3:37 pm by bizcor bizcor Blog

As we start to grow older, the reality of retirement looms great in our minds. We don’t want to struggle and scrimp, eating cat food and living in a studio apartment to survive; we want to be able to ENJOY our golden years. We want to travel and garden and eat at fancy restaurants. We want to be able to buy our grandchildren the things we never would have purchased for their parents when they were growing up. We want to go to sleep each night knowing the bills have been paid and there is excess food in our cupboards. And because the best way to ensure a bright future is to start now, and also because the easiest way to do so is by investing in real estate, it’s now time to learn how to be...

Branson Real Estate | How to Increase the Property Value of Your Home

Fri, Jun 15th 2018 6:04 pm by bizcor bizcor Blog

Change is a natural part of life, and even if it doesn’t make us feel very comfortable at times, it is important to our growth to accept and adapt and even grow to love the things that are changing in our lives. Babies are born, our grown children move away, starter jobs are begun and then ended as bigger and better opportunities come along, and sometimes as we grow to accept our empty nest ways, the baby bird returns back to the nest. Change is all around us, and our homes reflect the need for change the most. Whether your house has suddenly become too small, too expensive, or even too big, your property values can help determine when it’s time to change your lifestyle and purchase a new...

Moving to a new place can be a hard adjustment. You love your new home, neighborhood, and the neighbors you are slowly coming to know, but you miss the comfort and convenience of knowing how to accomplish standard everyday activities quickly and easy.

Branson Commercial Property | 3 Reasons for Owning a Commercial Property

Fri, May 18th 2018 11:50 am by bizcor bizcor Blog

When we were younger, investing in our future was not something we considered. We all knew we were going to live forever, and of course, our career choice was going to ensure that we could live in style and comfort in our golden years, so why worry? As we age, however, we soon learn that life doesn’t hand us a golden retirement; we have to earn it with a lot of hard work, sweat, and upon occasion, tears! Not all investments pan out, and it can sometimes be difficult to spot the diamond in the rough. Fortunately, investing in a Branson commercial property is one of the safer investment strategies you can make, and here is a list of three reasons why that is so!

Home Soundproofing | Top 5 Benefits of Soundproofing Your Home

Tue, May 8th 2018 2:16 pm by bizcor bizcor Blog

Anyone who has ever spent any time living in an apartment or condo truly understands the benefits of home soundproofing. Months or years spent hearing the everyday details of every argument, accident, and the occasional intimate moment are constant reminders of its importance. Interestingly enough, we don’t tend to think of soundproofing our homes, even though the same issues can arise—especially in the newer homes that are built so close together you can shake your neighbor’s hand while using your own bathroom. More houses per square foot equals more income potential for builders and less opportunity for privacy and quiet for the homeowners!

Homes in Branson MO | How to Add Curb Appeal to Your Branson Home

Thu, Apr 26th 2018 7:18 pm by bizcor bizcor Commercial Real Estate

Although we spend a lot of time and attention on the interior of our homes and even in the backyards, we tend to ignore the most viewed area of our little kingdoms: the front yard. This is the only space that everyone sees—from strangers rolling down the street to our neighbors that surround us to the many service people who bring our mail or drop off packages—and if its unappealing to them, can you imagine what potential buyers may think? Spring is the season when our thoughts lightly turn to moving, and if your house is going to be one of the hundreds of homes in Branson MO that will be offered for sale, these tips on how to add curb appeal could be the difference between a top dollar o...

Houses in Branson MO | Top Reasons for Moving to Branson | Sunset Realty

Thu, Apr 12th 2018 4:42 pm by bizcor bizcor Branson Homes and Real Estate

Sometimes we tend to stay in situations that are less than perfect because that it is the easy thing to do. The fear of moving into a worse situation can be far stronger than the need to make a change.

Tue, Mar 27th 2018 10:40 pm by bizcor bizcor Residential Real Estate

 If you have ever walked into a friend’s house and immediately felt welcomed and at home, you may already know the difference between a house and a home. A house can be impeccably decorated and sparkling clean, but still feel sterile and even inhospitable, while a home may have chipped paint, toys on the floor, and windows that are smudged by the fingers and noses of children and pets but will still make you want to stay for another cup of coffee or another 15 minutes of conversation.

Fri, Mar 16th 2018 8:29 pm by bizcor bizcor Residential Real Estate

The prospect of selling your home often comes with many questions like, “What kind of repairs should we make before we sell?” or “Who is the best realtor for the job?” and so on.

It is important to understand that you still must be transparent with prospective buyers regarding any issues that exist within your Branson realty. With that being said, here are a two of the pros and cons of selling your home as is.
