Just Sold Land in Two Counties!

On State Highway 39, between 168th and 180th, Lexington, Oklahoma, in Cleveland County... just sold a 6.63 acre tract that had been on the real estate market since 2006! My customer, that bought it, said he'd been looking for sometime and this tract was exactly what he and his wife were looking for! $20,000.

The other tract was just off State Highway 39 on Crestview Road, Purcell, Oklahoma, in McClain County. Washington school districts was the big draw for this customer. He he going to build a mini horse ranch. A bargain at $39,000.

I'm always so excited when I put a buyer and seller together!

Home Inspection Finds Unwanted Resident

Local home inspector, Gary Allen, with Premier Home Inspections, shared this great report. Detailed information is documented and photographed when a buyer is purchasing a home, and has hired a home inspector to "look over" the house for the buyers behalf.

In this case, a cute bandit raccoon has made his way into the interior of the walls and made a home for himself. Needless to say... the seller's will have to hire a wildlife wrangler to remove the raccoon and repair the damage made by him... or her.
