Kansas City Homebuyers Can Offer Less Than Full Price - It's Okay! Part 1
When I work as a Buyer’s Agent for my Kansas City homebuyers, I take it seriously like most real estate agents do. I have a legally binding contract that spells out the terms of our relationship. I just found a situation that took me by surprise as an agent. I read an old Active Rain blog post and a string of replies from real estate agents who were upset over the topic of lower than list price offers from homebuyers presented by their Buyer’s Agents. I think they … (2 comments)

We have a market in south Kansas City that appears to be on an upswing.

So, the federal tax credit helped homeowners in the 64114 zip code sell their homes. But, now with wonderfully low interest rates, and a somewhat depressed market (in some areas) … (0 comments)
