Several high-dollar homes were listed in Springfield last month, according to the Southern Missouri Regional MLS.
For the periodic editorial series Curb Appeal, Springfield Business Journal compiled a list of single-family homes with an asking price of at least $500,000 that were listed in city limits last month. In September, eight properties qualified.
A Don Russell-designed home leads the crop in terms of asking price, and in keeping with past trends, the beauty of the Ozarks is in full display with the properties.
