Don't let new construction compete against your home-List Now
It might not feel like Spring to us weather wise, but we can sure feel the heat in the Kansas City Real Estate Market. Spring has always been a great time for home buyers who are ready now to purchase homes. We see a flood of First Time Home Buyers and Sellers and those preparing to right-size up with growing families; and those downsizing as they empty their nest.

Anyone with a calculator can pre-qualify someone. A Pre-Approval is when your credit, income and assets have been verified, establishing a credible PRE-APPROVAL letter!
