Sales volume in on the upswing. Credit is getting slightly easier to obtain although it will not return, at least anytime soon, to the easy credit access of 2003-2005. Those days are long gone.
Buyers are very interested in the $8,000 tax credit which is spurring interest in the market.
In General, interest rates are at or near generational lows, assuming you have good credit. Now is a great time to buy, while activity is starting up and there is time to get your low interest rate locked in.
Olathe is home to International employer Garmin.
Two of my favorite places to eat in Olathe are – Jersey Mike’s sub shop at 151st and Blackbob and 5 guys hamburgers at 135th and Blackbob.
