Spring has officially sprung and warmer weather will most likely bring a long anticipated increase for the housing market, which was stifled by extreme winter weather catching most of the nation's meteorologists off-guard.The National Association of Realtors announced that the difficult winter weather, tight credit and a few other factors were related to the downturn over the winter months, but weren't totally unexpected. While housing remained stagnant throughout February, things are looking up with building permits increasing showing us that the future of housing is going up, up and up!Better readings are anticipated in future housing reports, as the weather becomes milder around the nation. Housing Out of Reach for First-timers?While it may seem that First Time Home Buyer Grandview ...

I’m not really the type of person to post housing statistics but in the case of Grandview I felt that it was neccesary.  About a month ago Forbes magazine included Grandview, MO on its list of America’s Fastest Dying Towns.  Ever since this article was published Grandview has been working hard to defend its image.  Since my brokerage Glad Heart Realty primarily focuses on the South Kansas City and Granview area we felt that it was important for us to do our part in defending this small town.  With Facts. Over the past year my company Vizion has flipped 7 houses in the Grandview area.   In fact one our fastest flips was the house at 13608 Spring St which sold in just under 30 days.  While its true that housing is down in the Grandview area its not as if this is some sort of anamoly in th...

The renovation of 12512 Winchester has been completed.  This fantastic home took only 4 weeks to renovate and is a fantastic continuation of project grandview. A few things I really love about the house: Two large living areas Granite Counters Open spacious kitchen Huge covered patio Amazing deck Fully fenced backyard Close proximity to the park This home like many of our renovations really just needed a bit of updating to become a Vizion home.  If your interested in a showing just give me a call or shoot me an email.

Project Grandview refers to all Vizion home renovations that take place in the city of Grandview. This is a brief overview and history of Grandview, MO. Grandview is a city in Jackson County, Missouri, United States located just south of Kansas City, MO.   The population was 24,881 at the 2000 census. Grandview began as a modest farming community called Anderson District, so named in honor of John Anderson, the owner of the only general store in the area. In the late 1800s, the farmers and other residents of the area made a crucial decision in the development of our town-they were fed up with having to pick up their mail at the post office in Hickman’s Mill, which was a full day’s trip. They wanted their blossoming area to have a post office all of its own, but before they could request...

We are in our final week of renovation on 12512 Winchester in Grandview, MO.  I stopped by the property earlier today after a showing on 11819 Delmar. The exterior paint has been completed and our standard blue door has been installed.  This house is located right across the street from an awesome park.  I’m sure being located on this street it will get plenty of drive by and walk by exposure. All of the interior paint has been completed and the new carpet has been installed.   I love how large the rooms are in this house.  Even the bathrooms are pretty large.  If you’re looking for a home with plenty of space for everybody this is it. The tile work has been completed in the kitchen and it looks like the appliances are ready to be set.  This is a pretty large eat in kitchen.  I think th...

I’ve been slacking a little bit on the progress posts for this house only because I haven't needed to take a look at this crews progress.  The crew that’s doing this house also did our house on 14500  Craig which is also in Grandview just a few miles away. Can you believe it? One of our crews is actually hard at work on a Saturday.  I think it’s because yesterday we got about 2 inches of unexpected snow.  Weather here in the midwest is pretty random today its about 50 degrees.  As you can see the exterior paint is nearly completed and the new doors, garage doors, and windows have been installed.  If all goes well we should have this project ready by the last week of January. Most of the interior paint has been completed on this house.  The new tile has also already been laid in the kitc...

14500 Craig is the second renovation we’ve done in the popular River Oaks subdivision of Grandview, MO.   This house sits right off of one of the nicest golf courses in the city.   I’m sure the new deck we put on this house will be put to good use watching many golf games. This house really didn’t need much just a little updating.  I really love the kitchen it’s very warm and inviting. Kansas City Homes For Sale You Can Also Follow Me On Twitter.

After showing a few houses in South Kansas City this evening I drove out to Grandview to see how things were going on Project River Oaks.  I was surprised to find that are sub crews have been working six days a week in order to finish on  schedule.  I promise they are doing this on their own free will. The new deck has almost been fully constructed.  Looks like the only thing missing right now are the stairs.  This new deck is about the same size as the old one but with this house backing up to a golf course I’m sure this will be a huge sales feature. The kitchen is coming together pretty quick.  Granite counters will go in in early next week.  About 90% of the interior has already been painted.   All the plumbing and electric work has been completed.  From the looks of things I expect ...

The Craig St remodel is moving along as scheduled.  Today after a few showings in the southern part of the city I drove out to Grandview to take some progress photos.   14500 Craig should be completed at the end of the month and be ready to list in early January. The new garage doors have already been installed along with the new roof. For those of you who have seen the before pictures you might remember there being a huge hole right here in the ceiling.  It’s all fixed now. A new deck is being built out back which is great since right behind this house is one of the best golf courses in the city.   Just as a reminder this is where we started.

Everything is still up in the air at this point but it looks like Vizion is in hot pursuit of two properties in Grandview, MO.  One property is located on 122nd and the other would be located in the very desirable River Oaks subdivision.  Specific details such as the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and price ranges are not yet available but what we do know is that these homes will be incredible.  Features such as solid surface granite, tile showers, and refinished hardwood floors are becoming standard amenities in Vizion homes so it is safe to assume that these Grandview acquisition will include at least these features.  I will keep everyone posted on the progression of these acquisitions and they remodels which will take place there after.

It looks like property taxes in Grandvew, MO may be increasing next year.  For the past few years, the Grandview C-4 School District has voluntarily rolled back its tax rate charged to district residents on their property tax. This year, the district is proposing to eliminate that roll-back, which could raise the property tax rate for district residents by almost 8¢. A family living in a $100,000 home now pays $1,035.50 property tax at the current $5.45 per $100 assessed valuation rate. If the tax were raised to $5.5291, then they would pay $1,050.53. That means an increase of $15.03 per year or $1.25 per month for that household. For real estate, it's 19% of the assessed value of a home. The Whole Article Can Be Read Here.

A few years ago an investor came into my office to ask me to manage an apartment complex in Grandview, MO he was buying. He was getting such a good deal that a few vacancies were not going to be a problem. I asked him for some details and we talked about the income potential for the property. The property was marketed as fully occupied and the rents were fantastic. The asking price was great considering the income potential.Well, except that I knew the property, I knew the area and I knew the market would never support a 100% occupied property in that market at those rental rates. Not the first time I've seen this, investors call me all the time asking for information on specific properties, most of the time the numbers are simply BS.I told this guy this is not what it appears to be, th...
