I'm a broker with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. I see a need out there for some good, honest facts for customers and agents.

 

….and again…
I hate to sound like a broken record, but sales are up, inventory is down, and we need some great listings to sell to eager buyers. I understand many are holding back on listing their home because of the fact there’s nowhere to move right now. Well, let’s take a look at your timeline and see when you do actually want to move. If it’s this year, you might want to consider a rental in the interim after you sell your home. Look at the numbers! I’m not kidding. Active, active market.
