How do you choose what kind of carpet to put in your home. I once rented a place that had bright green carpeting in the hallway and down the stairs. I fell in love with that color of green, it was a little bit darker than grass green. I vowed to at least make one part of my future home have green carpeting in that color. I can't afford new carpeting right now, but if I could I would buy it in a similar color as the carpet in this home below. It is the perfect shade of beige, light enough to keep things looking fresh and bright. But not so light that you have to clean up dirt and stains on a...

Eudora Kansas Real Estate SOLD prices can help both buyers and sellers know market value.  While the figures below will be of some help, contacting a Eudora Kansas Realtor like myself will allow you to get a FREE CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) that compares your home that you want to sell or your home that you want to buy.  I will need the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and the number of car spots in the garage in your home.  Other helpful information will be approximate square footage, age of home, and if an acre or more how large the lot size is.  I will then send you your FREE CMA so if you are buying, it will help you know whether the cost per square foot and the features in your home are worth what you are wanting to offer for the home and if you are selling it will help you kno...

110 Acorn Dr is a Eudora Kansas real estate foreclosure that originally came on the market at $.  It is appraised at $ (2007) which is based on what seller paid for it in 2006 when it was bought brand new (built in 2005).  For a foreclosure, the seller kept this house in excellent shape during the less than two years he was in this new construction. NOTE: This blog was written in the past about properties on the market at the time of the blog being written and should not be considered as active listings beyond the date of this blog. This Eudora property is 1803 sq ft.  My buyer just bought this home for $126,000 or about $70 per sq ft.  Most other Eudora Kansas Real Estate sells for around $100 per square foot on average. This home that was for sale is 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 car garage, a...

Buyers are always on the look out for great buys that are in ready to move in condition.  Sometimes properties are available at a reduced price as a short sale listing that is in great shape.  Eudora Kansas real estate could be appraised at $166,240 and I would suggest a short sale offer of $145,300 which would be a bargain. If it had three bedrooms and two baths and over 1500 square feet, and was a home for sale in Eudora, it would be below most other homes for sale there. Eudora properties do not usually have large lots but I can find ones that have more than a third of an acre.  If it has a fenced yard with a storage shed, so much the better. No matter what price range you are in, if you are looking for a foreclosure, great bargains, short sales, or motivated sellers, such homes for ...

OFF MARKET! BUT I'VE GOT MORE AT WWW.YOUWANTHOUSES.COM NOTE: This blog was written in the past about properties on the market at the time of the blog being written and should not be considered as active listings beyond the date of this blog. I love the openness of being outside, so when I can walk into a home with several large windows, high vaulted ceilings and well-planned large spaces it is very similar to being outside and it makes me feel content. As I get older, I'm starting to notice things like humidity and mosquitoes a lot more than I remember noticing them in my youth. The comforts of central air and soft carpeting are a luxury that I'm not ready to sacrifice to go outside.

My grandkids, their moms, a daughter-in-law carrying our 7th grand baby, my wife, and a friend of the grand kids went to the Madame Hatter's Tea Room in Eudora Kansas this past week for lunch and tea. The Tea Room is in the old Kaw Valley Bank building on the southeast corner of 7th & Main in Downtown Eudora.  In the old vault are hats, scarves, jewelry, and outfits that everyone can dress up in as they eat and have tea. I got to take these photos of the fun they were having in their dress up and tea. I had to leave after taking the photos to put a SOLD sign in my Eudora Kansas Real Estate 1118 Peach St listing's yard so I didn't get to stay and eat. Afterwards, they all returned to Quilting Bits & Pieces, the "Eudora Quilt Shop" as it is known, where my wife is one of the owners.  The ...

You've heard the joke, "Quick, what's the number for 911?"While even children know 911, many other numbers may not be as easy to find in an emergency.  People used to use phone books but now most people use the internet.  However, may I suggest that you print out this page of numbers and keep it on the refrigerator or someplace handy where it can be accessed in an emergency.Remember these are emergency numbers and not every day use numbers.  Please keep 911 and these other phone lines open for true emergencies.Police - Sheriff - Fire - Ambulance - 911Poison Control 800-332-6633Lawrence Memorial Hospital 7785-49-6162City of Eudora (Electric and Water) 785-542-2153 M-F 8-5 only (after hours call 911) Westar Energy (Electric) 800-794-4780Atmos (Gas) 866-322-8667Aquila (Gas) 800-303-0357Tox...

I look around on the ground and find money all the time.  I remember one day when I was growing up and my dad had found a $100 bill folded up quite small inside a plastic baggie.  While that was probably a horrible loss for the person who dropped it, it was a real find to our family back in the 60's!Many people will still stop to pick up a penny on the ground.  Some people say it is to honor God because the coins all bear the "In God We Trust" motto.  The related idea is that God sees you are having a bad time and drops a message in front of you telling you to trust Him, quite a compelling message for those who believe in Him.Some people say it brings good luck and recite an old, old jingle "See a penny, pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck".  In real estate, I am in and ou...
