Comments Off on If You’ve Been Holding Off On Selling Your Johnson County KS Home, NOW Is The Time

Checking The Pulse Of The Kansas City Real Estate Market

What kind of Kansas City real estate market are we heading into this spring? The demand for homes is high, the supply of homes is low and new home construction is returning to be a player in our local market. Homes are selling in Kansas City, Johnson County Kansas, Overland Park and the surrounding areas at prices not seen since 2007 and nationally homes sales are up more than 9% for the year.

The supply of homes is low, so low in fact that we’re having trouble locating homes for many buyers. This is the reality of it, though I expect the typical influx of spring listings will go a long way towards satisfying home buyer demand. If you are thinking about selling, or if you’ve held off selling attempting to wait out the real estate downturn, now is the time to sit down with us, go over your situation, and let us get to work getting your home sold. Appropriately priced homes are selling within 30 days.

Nationally, the supply of homes is down more than 20% from this time last year and at a level not seen in EIGHT years.  I’ve seen new home starts sprouting up across the metro and we’re seeing brisk sales in new home communities that had struggled mightily the past several years. Something to consider for resale sellers, the more builders that get back in the market, the more competition it is when selling… And all things being equal, buyers will choose a new home over a resale home. With interest rates so low, now is truly a better time than any in recent memory to be selling a home and making a move.
