It’s a wonderful time to buy and sell, if I do say so myself, and I do! The winter slowed down a bit but now heading into spring we are definitely seeing well priced houses go quickly. It’s not as crazy as the coasts with soaring prices and little inventory. However, within the Kansas City metro the market has been strong with most areas selling quickly. For some perspective the US average for days on market is 75 while the KC average is 55 and the San Fransisco average is 24.
This house near Legends that I posted about a few months ago in Kansas City, Kansas was on the market 44 days.
Then I got another listing on the same block and it sold in only 6 days! (here’s where being a great agent that people want to refer comes in handy as this owner was related to the owner of the first home and not just dumb luck as we’ve discussed in a previous blog post!)
While this listing across the state line in Kansas City, Missouri sold in a mere 4 days with a bidding war to boot.
I also helped these sellers find new homes. Between my decades of experience and my amazing marketing team 2016 is gearing up to be a fantastic year in real estate.
