Do not get discouraged. There are many houses for sale to fit all budgets. Are you looking to buy in West Plains or the Saint Louis area? If White Plains then my suggestion is that you find a realtor, tell them what you are looking for and they should be able to help. If you are looking in the Saint Louis area, you can contact me. Also, remember that you can search by price ranges on Trulia and go a search on the internet for HUD, foreclosures and the various other properties that I am confident you will find to fit your budget.

Best Wishes!

Susan, It is imperative that you use a reputable local Realtor to assist you, if you are serious about selling. You can try 'For Sale By Owner', but your audience is VERY limited, even if you utilize the websites that will let you list your property. You could waste months if not years trying to sell your property yourself, or you can turn to a real estate professional. Realtors, especially those that cooperate thru an MLS and do lots of advertising, both locally and nationally, can draw the most potential clients to your listing. The spring surge is here, and there is no better time to get your property listed for the best chance of selling soon! My office, for example, is a showcase company on, a member of 3 Multiple Listing Services, we cooperate will all area Realtors, and I can show you how your listings will be pushed out to as many as 10,000+ real estate websites as well as being advertised locally. Realtors provide a very valuable service. ... more

Realestate Watcher answered:
There are many factors which would influence an estimation of your property's worth. Number of bedrooms, bathrooms, basement or no basement, garage space, heating and cooling, etc., etc, etc........the best thing to do is to find a realtor that you feel you can trust and have them do a comparative market analysis (CMA). This is a process by which they take properties currently ON the market and properties recently SOLD that are comparable to yours in sq footage, construction, acreage, etc. and give you a low price and high price range that is realistic for selling your property in today's market. But that is the catch.......the evaluation of your property WILL depend on the state of the current market. Sometimes people are shocked at the difference between what they think they're property is worth and what other people are willing to give for it. If you are still interested, check out the link below for some current comparable properties in your area. ... more

Realestate Watcher answered:
In response to Kaydean and Wilma, may I say that I understand your frustration...however, when you are dealing with foreclosure properties the process can be confusing. Of course I am only assuming, but the situation you have described is one that frequently happens when dealing with repossessed properties. The property may be listed with a local office, but another person in another office in another state is usually calling the shots. Agents must follow their guidelines when selling these homes and they do not always make the most sense. These companies are trying to make back money lost on these homes and their #1 goal is to sell it for the most that they can (which if you have looked at some of these foreclosures you know can't be easy). When an offer is made on these properties there is a margin of time for other offers to be made (a multiple offer situation). Then no other offers can be made until it is decided whether the original offer is accepted or rejected. Unfortunately, many times buyers will make ridiculously low offers in the very beginning. The realtor is required to start the offer process even though the foreclosure company will almost definitely reject the offered purchase price. And until a contract is accepted, financing is completed, and the property is closed....the listing agent must keep the property on the MLS so that other interested parties are not deterred from inquiring about it. Not very helpful from a buyer standpoint, but from a seller standpoint....well, wouldn't you want your realtor to make sure that your house sold to the buyer willing to offer the most cash? ... more

My name is Pam Cochran and I am a REALTOR for Century 21 Rod Jarvis & Associates in West Plains. I agree that to have a fair assessment you should contact a REALTOR for a CMA. Also note that things like a well on the property, road access, and adjoining gov't land will affect its worth. Most realtors will be happy to give you a complementary CMA. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my office (417) 256-4882 or you can email me at Hope this helps! : ) ... more
