overland park: Hampton Place 2018 Real Estate Year in Review - 01/07/19 10:15 AM

overland park: Underwater Homes reach 6 year low in Johnson County Kansas - 02/14/17 12:59 PM
For the last several years we have seen a declining inventory of homes for sale in Johnson County Kansas.  There are many factors that have lead to this declining inventory but one of the biggest factors has been "underwater homes" or homes that are worth less than the mortgage currently owed.
If you bought your home during the peak market years of 2005 to 2007 you may have been caught in this trap. Towards the end of 2011 nearly 26% of homes were considered to be underwater, making is virtually impossible to sell without bringing a large sum of cash to the … (0 comments)

overland park: The Advantages to buying a home this fall in Johnson County Kansas - 10/24/16 06:24 AM
The public perception has always been that you buy and sell homes in the Spring or Summer. You may say, what would be the advantage to buying in the Fall or Winter months?
A lot of things have changed in the way we buy homes the last several years and the times of the year we purchase has too. Buying a home in the fall can be very advantageous, you will generally find more homes to choose from, less competition from other buyers and less chance of a bidding war on your favorite home. Do you want to know more about purchasing … (0 comments)

overland park: Advantages to selling your Johnson County home this fall - 10/21/16 03:31 AM
While most people would agree that the traditional time of year to sell a home is in the spring. What  you may be surprised to hear that selling your home in the fall can be equally as advantageous. Low interest rates and a severe shortage of available properties has changed the traditional view about home selling.

There has been a storm brewing in the Johnson County Kansas Real Estate market for some time and it has the potential to explode this spring. There is a number I want you to think about and it is 1.5, that is the number of months supply of homes currently available in Johnson County. 
What that really means is that if no new homes are listed, every listed home in Johnson County would be SOLD in 1.5 months with no other homes to purchase. Is this a good thing? The answer is no and while if you are a seller you can … (1 comments)
