johnson county: Thinking of Building a New Home? Here are the trends in Johnson County Kansas for 2012 - 03/19/12 01:26 AM
Thinking of Building a New Home?
Here are the trends in Johnson County for 2012

New homes are more compact.  While the occasional Mcmansion is still being built, the majority of new homes in Johnson County are between 2,500 and 3,500 square feet.  Replacing hearth rooms and separate living rooms is a single great room that opens to the kitchen.  The trend towards even greater informality at home is making the living room, often used only when company comes, obsolete. Maximizing space.  Want to work in the closet?  There are now new homes that have built in desks located in … (4 comments)

The Border War: Who wins when it comes to real estate in Kansas and Missouri?
 VS    
The oldest rivalry west of the Mississippi may come to an end this Saturday when the Jayhawks and Tigers meet for the last time in Allen Fieldhouse.  While we apply the term “war” loosely today to business poaching and sports, the deep divide between the two states seems as literal as State Line road.  What Kansan doesn’t hesitate, if only for a moment, to purchase a home with a 64131 zip code?  What Missourian isn’t considered a traitor for moving into Leawood, steps … (2 comments)

johnson county: So you don't think it is a good time to buy a house in Johnson County KS? Think Again! - 02/17/12 01:29 AM
So you keep hearing on the news that it is a buyers' market but what does that really mean? If you are looking to purchase a home in Johnson County Kansas it could mean buying a home at a substantial discount. In Johnson County Kansas the home market peaked right around August 2006.

After a quick search I found the perfect home to compare:  This south Overland Park 4 bedroom 4 1/2 bath home … (1 comments)

johnson county: What’s Really Going On with Housing in Johnson County Kansas? - 02/15/12 05:51 AM
Nothing is more local than real estate, right down to the street on which we live.  When warnings about the potential of a bursting housing bubble first surfaced in 2006, many disregarded the claims as the alarmist ramblings of Ivy League academia, looking at the issue from 10,000 feet based on national trends unrelated to our own backyard.  
Fast forward to 2012 and most of us either know someone or know someone who knows someone who has faced foreclosure or short sale of their home.  It seems as though the anecdotes of distress have replaced what’s really occurring in the … (0 comments)
