Latest Showing Report and Missouri’s Tax Free Weekend!
Looks like we’re seeing the regular “last vacation before school starts” drop in showings. There’s still some serious buyers out there, so it’s still not a time to get discouraged. I’ve noticed extreme variations from city to city, zip code to zip code in inventory levels. So, if you’re not finding what you like in Kansas City, Liberty, etc you might want to consider somewhere a bit more rural like Platte City, Kearney, etc. There’s a build-up of inventory that needs to be moved—-which means great deals for buyers right now. (For reference, the 100’s on this chart are what is considered ‘Northland’ for the Kansas City area, specifically 106 is Liberty, 115 Parkville.)
Now, on to the best news! Missouri is still giving residents a tax-free weekend for back to school shopping. It begins Friday, Aug. 3, 2012 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012. Keep an eye on websites showing you where you can get the best deals this weekend. Happy Shopping!
