Right Place, Right Time, Wright City”

Wright City, Missouri, is located along Interstate 70, about 45 miles west of St. Louis. As part of the westernmost portion of the St. Louis Metropolitan Economic area, Wright City not only provides a country setting for housing, but a potential for economic growth that is attractive for those businesses seeking to cater to the needs of a residential community and facilities for light to heavy industrial businesses. Primarily single-family, with some multi-family housing, Wright City provides a peaceful, semi-rural area in which to live, yet is within an easy drive for the major sporting and cultural events of the St. Louis Area. A wide variety of homesites are available to serve almost any lifestyle.

The History of Wright City

The City of Wright City was platted as a village in 1857 by Doctor Henry C. Wright on land granted to Dr. Wright in 1831 by the United States.  The village was platted to take advantage of the new North Missouri Railroad which was constructed in 1857.  Dr. Wright built his home about 1860 on land that sets now at the corner of South First Street and South Locust.  In September, 1863 the Wright City Raid took place during the Civil War.  The Baptist Church, Bryan’s Blacksmith Shop and Kennedy’s Saloon (all known to be places where Southern sympathizers congregated) were burned to the ground by Union Militia.  The town of Wright City was incorporated in 1869 and became a fourth class city in 1941.  Wright City, a thriving community doing business through the railroad, then with the advent of automobiles Highway 40 ran through the center of town bringing motorists and businesses catering to them.  In the 1950’s Interstate 70 was constructed, bringing a whole new group of businesses. Today, Wright City is a growing community with the advantage of the railroad and interstate highway.

4 Home Hacks that don’t Work

by Matt Barbato

We’re always on the lookout for unique and affordable ideas to
simplify household tasks. However, some of these methods are
mythical and don’t actually work. Don’t let any of these home
improvement follies ruin your home! Here are 4 home hacks

you should avoid at all costs.

Lemons don’t clean garbage disposals
This is one of the most well-known
home hacks out there, but it will
only result in additional damage to
your garbage disposal. Citric acid is a
natural deodorizer, but it can corrode
metal, according to House Logic. The
lemon peel can also clog your pipes.
Instead, turn on the disposal and
dump in at least two trays of ice
cubes while running cold water. It’s
noisy, but will dislodge any buildup
within the disposal.

Duct tape doesn’t seal ductwork
Duct tape and ductwork might
sound like a match made in heaven,
but that’s far from the case. Duct
tape is merely a temporary solution
that will only increase your energy
bill. Tests by the U.S. Department
of Energy revealed the glue deteriorates
over time due to the hot air
from the HVAC system.
Instead, use duct mastic, which is a
similar substance to caulk, and a layer
of fiberglass to keep the air from
escaping.

Bleach doesn’t kill mold
While bleach may work on whites, it’s
not made to eradicate mold. Do not
use bleach if mold has populated on
caulk, drywall, insulation and carpet.
It will merely mask the sight and
could spur growth.
Instead, use an anti-fungal product
to eradicate mold. You probably
shouldn’t tackle the outbreak alone if
it covers a large area either. Don’t be
afraid to rely on an expert.

Dryer sheets + air vent = fire hazard
Some people think placing dryer
sheets in an air vent will freshen the
room, but that’s not true. This trick is a
fire hazard that will raise your energy
bills and probably cause smoke. Dryer
sheets block air-flow and force your
HVAC system to increase its effort.

Why Don’t Agents All Charge the Same Commission?

For the most part, they do, according to local custom. Although you will find discount agents, top producer agents, neighborhood specialists, veteran agents, brand new agents, part-time agents, and agents in every type of size and color.

At Ivie Real Estate, LLC our REALTORS®  pledge to put the interests of buyers and sellers ahead of their own and to treat all parties honestly. We attempt to ensure that all written documents are easy to understand and will give everybody a copy of what they sign.

We do not discriminate in any fashion for any reason on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin and expect agents to be competent, to conform to standards of practice and to refuse to provide services for which they are unqualified.

Agents are not identical to each other. You should never pick an agent based on commission. You might find the more expensive agents offer services and profit models for their sellers the less expensive agents do not. Overall, agents generally get paid what they are worth. They are not all worth the same fee.

Winter prep tips

Winter is still here with us, and probably hitting this us this weekend with some snow.

Make sure your home is ready for the winter with some tips below.

 

Home Winter Prep Tips

A large winter storm can make a landscape visually stunning, courtesy of a blanket of pristine white snow and icicles. Although the scene sounds picturesque, frozen water is extremely heavy and can wreak havoc on homes and surrounding property that has not been properly maintained for the harsh season. Homeowners need to take charge of protecting their slice of theAmerican Dream and some home items requiring special attention for the upcoming season include:

  • Pipes: Frozen Pipes: Improperly maintained piping is more prone to bursting upon freezing. Increased pressure builds up in frozen pipes and that forces the water downstream, causing the situation. Once a pipe bursts, flooding is possible. Flood insurance may not be part of your homeowners insurance making a separate rider necessary for any compensation. Seasonally inspecting, sealing and insulating pipes can do wonders in minimizing this misfortune. Don’t forget about outside water sources like sprinklers and garden hoses when going through this process.
  • Branches: Snow can make a landscape look like a winter wonderland, however, not all tree branches can support the extra weight from the seasonal downfall. Tree trimming and removing branches that are precariously perched or dead should help downplay this risk.
  • Roofs: Heavy snow can also weigh down a roof. Prior to the snow season roofs should be checked for strength and leaks should be repaired. Additionally, gutters and roofs should be cleaned of all debris to prevent clogs and ensure that the system is ready to handle any water runoff.
  • Make sure you have drain tiles installed on your gutters to help keep all water away from your home.  This will help keep the water away from your home and foundation.  It’s a must!!!
  • NO SALT ON DRIVEWAYS FOR THE FIRST YEAR IN YOUR NEW HOME!!!
    Salt on the driveways always seems like a great idea at the time, but it will eat your driveway and greatly increase the severity of the exporsure and may cause scaling.

Wright City named Missouri’s 16th safest city!!

Wright City named Missouri’s 16th safest city by SafeWise, a safety and home security provider. The ranking is based on FBI crime reports statistics on Missouri cities with more than 3,000 people. See the rankings here.

How We Chose the Safest Cities in Missouri

To identify the 20 safest cities in Missouri, we reviewed the most recent FBI Crime Report statistics from 2015, along with population data. We eliminated all cities with fewer than 3,000 residents as well as any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI.
From there, we evaluated the remaining cities. We narrowed it down based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) in each city. To further level the playing field, we calculated the likelihood of these crimes occurring out of 1,000 people in each city.

Text-to-911

Citizens in St.Charles County now have another option to reach 911 during an emergency-by text.  A call to 911 still is the preferred form of communication during an emergency, but there may be situations-a home invasion or a domestic violence incident, for example-when texting for help is safer.  Additionally, it can be used by those who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability.

Texting 911 is simple.  Enter the numbers 911 in the “To” field of the text message on a mobile device.  Then, send a brief message: location and type of emergency.  For more information about text-to-911 and the new 911 system, please visit:  www.sccmo.org/EmergencyCommunications.

Wright City High earns bronze rating!!

For a third year in a row, Wright City High School has been recognized as one of the most distinguished learning environments in the state.

As part of its annual ratings, the U.S. News and World Report awarded the school a bronze medal, ranking it among the top 146 schools out of over 500 in Missouri. In general, schools are ranked based on their performance on state-required tests and how well they prepare students for college.

“This sustained academic achievement is a testament to our fantastic staff for really putting an emphasis on teaching and learning, as well as to our students for working hard to respond to the high standards set by our teachers,” said Principal Shawn Brown.

Out of the schools in Missouri, two were awarded gold status, 22 earned silver status and 122 received a bronze recognition. The evaluation looks at the school’s college readiness index. It focuses on the percentage of advanced placement students tested, their scores on the test and how many passed. It also takes into account the scores from the end-of-course math and English tests.

According to the scorecard, Wright City received an 8.2 for college readiness. It had 11 percent of students take the advanced placement testing, with 64 percent of those passing. The school scored a 69 percent in math proficiency and a 73 percent in English proficiency. 

“The fact that our district has been laser focused on achievement and really tried to increase rigor for our kids and provide them with solid learning opportunities every day has contributed to our success,” said Brown. 

The evaluation and rankings were based off of data from the 2014-15 school year. Wright City High School has an enrollment of 450 students and staffs 29 full-time teachers. The district has an 85 percent graduation rate.

Brown says being able to share those recognitions received by the district really says a lot for the community.

“It brings a great source of pride to our community,” said Brown. “We’re really proud of the fact we provide a high school that provides quality education. Throughout the years it’s been something we’re really focused on is making this a place people want to move to.”

Tips for New Sod

New Sod Care

First 2 Weeks

The key to establishing new sod is to keep it properly watered for the first month. Immediately after installing sod, water thoroughly making it spongy to the step. The new sod should be kept thoroughly wet to a depth of 4″ to 6″ and watered 3 to 5 times a day during the first 7 to 14 days depending on the season. Lift a corner of the sod to determine the depth of moisture. In the first week, it is very important to keep the new sod damp. During this time stay off the sod so it can take root and you do not sink in and leave depressions from your foot steps. During hot weather, sprinklers should run several times a day so the new sod never dries out. If allowed to dry out, the sod will shrink, brown, and can die. The roots of your new sod will penetrate the soil faster and root down sooner if properly watered. At the end of week 2, dry up the yard enough so you can mow.

Weeks 3 & 4

The following 2 weeks are used to transition from frequent daily watering to fewer cycles per day and increase the number of days between waterings. During week 3, reduce waterings to 1-3 times per day and skip a day between watering if the new sod is not drying out. By week 4, water 1 to 2 times every other day. After week 4, your new yard should be ready to go 2 to 3 days between watering. Water your lawn in the evening or early morning when less evaporation occurs. To reduce run-off on hills and promote deep root growth, reduce watering times in half. One hour later, run the irrigation cycle again and apply the rest of the water. This allows the water to soak into heavy soils.

Rest of the Season

Your new lawn will need more water the first growing season and especially the first 6 months. As it roots deeper over the course of a year, it will need less water. If your lawn looks dry, it probably needs watering. The key to new sod care during this time is deep watering less frequently. This will help the roots grow down and develop a deep root system that uses less water. It is ok after the first two months to stress your lawn a little. This means let your yard dry out a bit and when you see signs of stress starting to appear, make sure to water. This will also allow you to fine tune the sprinkler system and adjust heads for proper coverage and change nozzles for more or less water in certain spots.

Mow if Grass exceeds 3.5″

Your new lawn should be mowed at the end of week 2 or if you lawn exceeds 3 1/2″ tall. Back off on the watering so the turf is dry to the touch and firm enough to walk on without sinking in. If your new lawn reaches over 3 1/2″, mow off a third of the length even if it has not been two weeks. Do not cut shorter than 2″ for the first few times you mow. Exercise caution the first time you mow so you do not damage or pull up the sod. If some of the sod does move around, don’t worry. Just put it back in place and it will grow in.

5 Things to do to ensure your loan closes

  1. Your fist step is to get a Pre Approval form a trustworthy, reputable lender.  A lender referral from your real estate agent, friends and family are a great way to place yourself in the hands of a qualified mortgage professional.  It is not all about trying to get the lowest rate.  It is also about the reputation and service you will receive throughout the process to ensure that you close on time.
  2. DO NOT apply for any new credit.  Your Pre Approval is based on information reporting on your credit report at the time you apply for the mortgage loan.  It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep your credit the same, or at leas very similar, through the closing date.  Now is NOT the time to go out and buy a new car.
  3.  DO NOT utilize credit cards to purchase new furniture or appliances.  Increased credit card debt can negatively affect your credit score and therefore has the potential to cause issues with final mortgage approval.
  4. During this time, remember to save money for your new home purchase and also save money for reserves allowing you to have money after you close on your home.  There are several items you may find that you need when you move into your new home.
  5. Make sure you are protecting yourself by utilizing a seasoned, professional Real Estate Agent.  You want a knowledgeable Real Estate Agent guiding you through the process.  This can help you avoid issues and navigate through the complexities of buying a new home.
