Your REALTOR Just Bought A New Home at 5640 Villa Dr!

On November 1, 2017, Rob and Eula Lang closed on their new 3 bedroom ranch home with 3305 sqft at 5640 Villa Dr Lawrence, KS  66047.  They will be renting out or selling the home they are moving from which is a 4 bedroom two story with 2424 sqft at 300 Rockfence Pl, Lawrence, KS  66049.  Rent will be $2000 per month or sale price will be $300,000.  If it rents first, it will not be for sale and obviously if it sells first it will not be for rent.

Number of Buyers Continues to Exceed Inventory of Homes For Sale

There are 1000 single family homes SOLD on average in Lawrence KS every year.  There are only 180 single family homes for sale at this moment which is down from 1,620 homes for sale at the peak of the extreme buyers' market in June 2006 (more than 9 months worth of homes to sell).

We are in an extreme sellers' market right now with more than 5 buyers for every house (less than 3 months worth of inventory).  This leads to multiple offers, selling for higher than asking price, and homes selling on the first day they come out on the market.  In October 2017, 49 homes SOLD with 8 selling for higher than asking price and 12 selling for asking price.

Homes SOLD for just over 98% of asking price on average.  So if you are planning on buying a home, you should plan on 1) Acting quickly and being prepared with a pre-approval letter or proof of funds letter in your hand the first day a house comes on the market and 2) Plan on multiple offers and higher than asking price contract prices being required to buy a house right now.

52.69 days on market was the average but more than 1/3 of the houses SOLD in under a week with 7 selling the first day.

Home Alerts

You can sign up for email alerts of homes within YOUR search criteria.  You will be the FIRST to know when a listing hits the market!  Call, email, or text me with your search criteria (city or cities, minimum bedrooms and baths, is garage or basement required, minimum number of acres if rural, and price range).  I will set up a self updating website that shows just your property matches and you can mark them "Favorite", "Possibility", or "Reject" for easier viewing.  You will love the advantage this gives you over other buyers for the same property!!
