Thinking about selling? Don't wait.

We often hear that the best time to list your home is in the Spring, but is that really the case? Despite what people may think, the winter months are hot.

Winter is a great time to capitalize on relocation buyers who are moving to Kansas City to start jobs around the first of the new year. Also, the current market in Kansas City is hungry for inventory. Right now in Johnson County, there are 5 buyers for every 1 house that goes on the market. This means that buyers are anxiously waiting and as a seller, you are in a great position. 

Without knowing what the Springtime market will look like, what we can tell you is that if you wait you are going to be putting your home on the market during the most competitive time to sell. This could mean it will be slower to sell and having to lower the price to compete.

If you're waiting because you don't know where you want to move to yet, let us help. We have the tools to get you into your dream home. Whether it's resale or new construction, our lenders can work with you to determine how to be smart with your money, and allow you to be noncontingent so your offer can be more competitive and appeal to sellers.

If you still have questions or concerns, let's talk! We're never too busy for you or your referrals. When you need a Realtor who works for you, "Just Call Jenn." • 913-221-8863

West Bottoms - First Friday

H O L I D A Y  S H O P P I N G 

I feel like I could end the post there but for your sake, I'll elaborate. Every First Friday starting at 8:30 am the Antiquing Queens and Craft Kings get together to sell you their vintage, new, and refurbished goods. I say "goods" because there is so much for sale during First Friday that it's almost hard to put in words. You'll wander through modern farmhouse booths, someone's entire handcrafted Etsy shop, stores that feel exactly like Homegoods, and then shops that make you wonder "who in Kansas City can actually afford any of this..." The variety will give you a chance to cross everyone off your holiday shopping list. 


Oh! And guess what? There's one happening this Friday, December 1st.

Here's a list of all the stops and shops. Thanks. KC Star ;) 

Van Till Winery

"How have I never heard of this place?" Is what I asked myself over and over as I strolled through the Van Till Winery. Upon arrival, you will notice rows of greenhouses filled with fruits, vegetables, and flowers. If there is a wait for a table, well, you'll just have to go do a wine tasting to fill the time. Right after the wine tasting and right when you think this place can't possibly get any better, they bring you a farm to table wood-fired pizza made by cooks and servers who are paid a living wage (no need to tip at Van Till, if you do it will go to a charity of their choosing.)

Van Till Winery is one of Missouri's best kept secrets, and only a 15-minute drive from The Elms Hotel and Spa. This combo is actually what started the staycation movement.
