johnson county: Home buyers need agent committed to their Johnson County KS search - 07/16/13 05:28 AM
There is no better feeling then when I help a buyer find the absolute perfect home in Johnson County Kansas but that feeling can quickly turn into a punch in the gut when you find out that 3 other potential buyers think it is also the perfect home for them. With the sudden surge in homes sales and a large decrease in the number of good homes for sale, you may find it extremely difficult to find that perfect home and even more difficult to get your offer accepted over several competing bids.
Now more than ever it is imperative to … (0 comments)

johnson county: New home construction takes off in South Overland Park Kansas - 02/06/13 03:27 AM
What a difference a year can make. In 2005 the new homes market in South Overland Park was booming, most builders carried an inventory of 5-10 spec homes (homes built on speculation) knowing that the home would sell before completion or within a very short period there after. Well in 2006 as we all know the market hit the skids, new home sales plummeted and new home construction came to a screeching halt. 
That year is making a difference again but in a good way. New homes construction bottomed out at the end of 2011 and the begining of 2012. While … (0 comments)

johnson county: Hampton Place Overland Park, KS 2012 year end home sales report - 01/02/13 11:22 PM
2012 will go down as a defining year for Overland Park real estate, it will be the year where the market finally stabilized and the pieces of a shattered housing market were put back together and Hampton Place was one of those subdivisions that helped lead the way. While there were less homes SOLD in 2012 than in 2011 in Hampton Place is was not due to lack of interested buyers. Inventory of homes for sale has been at an all time low since late 2011, that has been consistent in all of South Johnson County. As you will see in … (0 comments)

johnson county: Clock is ticking for tax relief on Short Sales - 09/04/12 01:49 AM
Are you behind on mortgage payments or struggling to keep up? Is your house worth lees than what you owe the bank? Then you may be considering a short sale. That means selling your house and asking the bank to accept the lesser proceeds as final payment. What a lot of people don't know is that the difference between what your home sells for and what you owe the bank is generally taxable. But in 2007 congress passed a law called The Mortgage Debt relief act of 2007 it allows in most circumstances for you not to pay taxes on foregiven debt.

johnson county: Hesitant sellers delaying recovery in Johnson County KS Real Estate - 08/01/12 05:03 AM
The most recent home sales figures for June were just released by The Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors and there were some very interesting trends. Sales were higher (up 17%), sales prices were higher (up 4%)  and average days to sell were lower. The most disturbing trend however was the supply of homes on the market.
Supply of available homes is down to 13,500 including both New homes and resale homes, that is a 6.8 months supply. 6 months supply equals an even market with anything above signaling a buyers market and anything below 6 months signaling a sellers market. … (1 comments)
