June Lake of the Ozarks Real Estate Update

Lakefront Home and Condo Sales

This month I have compiled the data on lakefront home and condo sales for a 10 year overview of the market.  The chart represents sales in 2005 thru 2014 comparing January 1 thru May 15 of each year and was obtained from the Lake of the Ozarks/Bagnell Dam AOR MLS.

As you look at the average sales prices, you can follow the rising values up to the 2008-09 time frame.  In 2009-2010 values began to fall then bumped up and down through today.  I cringe to say this, but based on what I see from working daily in this market as well as looking at the sales data, many properties are realistically worth what they were in 2005.

I realize that this data combines all property types and locations.  There are many areas that I see decent value increases while other still continue to remain stagnant or even lose value.  If you would like a detailed sales report and value for your specific property type or neighborhood, please contact me.
