Housing Stats And Information On Grandview, MO

Real Estate Agent with Vizion KC

I’m not really the type of person to post housing statistics but in the case of Grandview I felt that it was neccesary.  About a month ago Forbes magazine included Grandview, MO on its list of America’s Fastest Dying Towns.  Ever since this article was published Grandview has been working hard to defend its image.  Since my brokerage Glad Heart Realty primarily focuses on the South Kansas City and Granview area we felt that it was important for us to do our part in defending this small town.  With Facts.

Over the past year my company Vizion has flipped 7 houses in the Grandview area.   In fact one our fastest flips was the house at 13608 Spring St which sold in just under 30 days.  While its true that housing is down in the Grandview area its not as if this is some sort of anamoly in the country as a whole.  Housing is down all over the United States and small towns are not imune to the ups and downs of real estate appreication.  Special Thanks to Sage Beauchamp for putting together the housing stats.

Wow Justin, That's pretty dismal - one of America's fastest dying towns! That's sad and terrible. Good for you man, standing up and telling it like it is!

Grandview prices are dropping because of all the foreclosures but there's still quite a few people that want to live in Grandview.  The total sales in 08 is actually more than they were in 06.  I'm sure you can't say that about many cities across the country right now.
