home buyers: February 2011 Market Update - 02/17/11 04:26 AM
February 2011 Market Update Gradual improvement in the housing market continues at a steady pace without government support.
Six months after two consecutive years of tax incentives for buyers; starting in July 2008 with a $7,500 repayable first-time buyer tax credit, extending to a $8,000 nonrepayable first-time buyer tax credit in January 2009, and ending in June 2010 with the expanded credit to repeat buyers; the market has shown remarkable improvement from the initial drop this past July.

The Buyers are starting to come out of the woodwork in Johnson County KS!! 
In the last week I have had three leads just pop up out of no where, well not really no where but unexpectedly!!

home buyers: Happy Groundhog Day!! - 02/02/11 01:51 AM
Happy Groundhog Day!!
According to Punxsutawney Phil, Spring is on the way. He apparently did not see his shadow today and left his burrow! 
According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, it will leave the burrow, signifying that winter will soon end. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and winter will continue for six more weeks.
According to Wikipedia "Modern customs of the holiday involve celebrations where early morning festivals are held to watch the groundhog emerging from its burrow. … (1 comments)

Weekends! Man I live to have a great weekend! Especially this time of year when you know the weather is going to be nice, the sun will be out and the temp may be a little warmer than it has been!
Makes me want to be outside, but if the ground is muddy with the snow melting then you are pretty much limited with what you can do, right? 
Here is something that you may not have thought about doing on a nice weekend in the middle of winter. Go look at homes that are for sale. Right now there are 1000s … (0 comments)

home buyers: Mold? What do I do with that? - 01/27/11 03:07 AM
Mold, oh my, what the heck do I do about that? We all know mold is nasty, icky and smells bad as well as looks really bad. But, did you know that some of it is very toxic and bad for your health if it remains in your home and is allowed to grow?
For example there is a mold that is black in color that is called Toxic Black Mold. Toxic black mold can cause many health problems in humans such as allergies, irritation and uncommonly invasive diseases. Wow, all of that from a mold? Yep!

home buyers: Housing Inventory in the Kansas City Market! - 01/26/11 01:30 AM
Though the Kansas City Real Estate Market is still a buyers market, there is and indicator that is showing the Kansas City market is getting better for sellers.
When real estate agents gauge a market by using a measurement known as "Absorption Rate". An absorption rate is a simple calculation based on number of home sales and number of home currently active in the market place. This calculation is used to determine if the market is a buyers market or a sellers market.
Rule of Thumb
Buyers Market = 7 months or more of inventoryBalanced Market = 6 months of inventorySellers Market = 5 … (0 comments)

home buyers: So Sad Da Bears Did Not Make It To The Super Bowl :-( - 01/23/11 12:43 PM
Well, as I sit here this evening morning the loss that the Bears were handed by the Packers for the NFC Championship I ponder the lost opportunities that they had this evening. I have to admit that I am proud of my team and as I tell my friends "Being a Bears fan has it's perks like not having any expectations to have a winning season. Then when they win a game it is much sweeter because you did not expect them to win!" Now I must tell you that I was born into a family of Bears fans, there has … (2 comments)
