Branson Real Estate Sales On The Rise in 2009 And Sunset Realty Looks Toward 2010

Share Article

Sales of single family homes and condos in the Branson, Missouri area are on the rise. Trends show that existing home sales, while dipping and rising, have increased dramatically since the beginning of 2009. Condo sales, on the other hand, have also risen, however at a much slower pace.

List, there were 707 single family homes sold from January through September 2009 with 79 homes currently under contract and 157 condominiums sold with 18 pending sales. According to Dustin Hall, Broker/Owner of Sunset Realty Services in Branson, Missouri, condo sales in the Table Rock and Taneycomo Lake areas have slowed from past years because of financing. "There are some great condo buys here and buyers are still looking for the good deals. The problem is the difficulty buyers experience with obtaining loans for vacation condos. These loans can't be sold on the secondary market so many national lending institutions will not finance condos in this area. Fortunately, many local banks in Branson and the surrounding area recognize the value and investment potential here and will loan on most of the condo projects and hold the loan in-house. Unless buyers are working with a Realtor® experienced in the Branson condo market, they may never get the guidance they need to make it happen."

Sunset Realty is definitely in touch with the pulse of the Branson condo market. Several years ago, Dustin realized that many owners of vacation homes and condos in Branson needed a service that allowed them to rent their property when they were not using it, allowing them to offset their mortgage payment and capture a return on their investment. So, in 2006, Dustin along with his partners Rick Plush and Nicole Dittman, opened the doors to Sunset Realty Services, offering real estate sales specializing as buyers' agent for Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo vacation homes and Branson investment properties in and offering professional property management for vacation condos and lake homes. Today Sunset manages over 60 homes and condos and for the past two years, Dustin and Sunset Realty have been in the top 20 selling agents in the Tri-Lakes Board of Realtors®.

"I'm very proud of what Sunset has accomplished since we started. We've got a great team and we truly care about making the experiences of our owners, guests, buyers and sellers the best possible. I know that the real estate and property management businesses are very competitive, so we are always looking for new and innovative ideas to improve and expand. For example, in 2010, we plan on launching two new programs; a referral program for vacation rental owners, and a real estate program working with For-Sale-By-Owner properties. We expect 2010 to be a very exciting year!"
