Homes in the suburbs are moving so fast that they are going off the market the same day they get listed. The boy blunder has triggered a second white flight.

Kansas City had hope and momentum. Two short weeks of protests, looting and anarchy led by the Mayor of all people has destroyed 30 years of positive change.

No one is going to invest new money in Kansas City and the Plaza is destroyed. Power and Light District will be destroyed next.

And yet homes in Brookside and Waldo are still getting multiple offers and selling for over list price. Go figure.

One could save on average $15,000 without the use of a realtor.

Totally wrong 8:35 - Brookside homes aren't selling this past month. No one with a sane mind wants to live in a city with no police protection and run by murderous gangs.

And yet you're full of it. A house on my block had 15 showings and 12 offers, the highest $15K over asking.

B.S. - 9:18 - No one with money is moving to Kansas City metro.

Maybe last year they had multiple offers over their sales price but not anymore.

And yet inspections on the house were yesterday. Weird.

BTW, I don't have a dog in this race. Frankly, I'd like real estate values to go down, since I'm not selling and not looking forward to higher taxes, but facts are facts.

Buy this one because it's just a short walk to the wonderful, vibrant, and prestigious Plaza.

There is a movement of People and Business wanting to leave City's where there Business and Lives are Being affected by Crime violent Protest Communists Ideology ect.Southwest Missouri and West Central Missouri is Growing. Many Illinois people are moving into the Lake of the Ozarks area .Millions want to leave NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA.

Retro ROCKER said...

The Problem many would like to Leave But they can't afford to. There may be only 20 percent of the population that can come up with a Down payment. And many of the ones that can ,there holding on to there money. STASHING CASH .Because they know what the future brings. And it's not pretty .

And yet no one knows what the future brings. Weird.

There are still stupid and/or poor people. Mostly, they can't afford anything in the suburbs.

Too bad we can't give the left-wing states of New York and California to the Democrat Party and let them create their own Socialist country. Name it whatever they want to, no police, no laws etc. Moe and Curly Cuomos could be their President and Vice-President.

Life would be great without the Democrats.

The real estate market is held up by the future earnings potential of young buyers entering the market. What is their future? Its not good. How many kids graduating from college are going to be able to afford a $500,000 home? Not many. Slowly the real estate market will deflate. Just like the market for high end Thomasville furniture that was "gold" 20 years ago. Now few buyers can be found. The USA is entering a Japanese style 2 decade long economic cycle of being stale. We will economically be a 2nd class country for a while. But this does happen to all economies, and ours is over 230 years old. Its about time. Anyone paying top dollar of real estate in Kansas City is going to see values decline...

Surprisingly, homes in Kansas City are flying off the market right now. With a pandemic and an unstable economy, it’s a bit of a mystery to realtors and builders alike. Scott Weber of Scott Homes says it’s part limited supply and high demand.

“I think people are buying houses right now because the interest rates are low and we have a lot of great builders out there, and a lot of great designs,” Weber said.


Kaput, huh?

I'd believe an actual agent before I'd believe some third-rate blogger.
