The spring housing market is upon us, and we wanted to call attention to 5 hot suburban KC neighborhoods. What makes a neighborhood hot? Typically, it’s a combination of location, desirable schools, close to amenities, sense of community. All of which result in a low inventory and sales prices at or above asking!
Kansas City’s metro boasts so many unique and hot areas, and it ultimately depends on the lifestyle you’re seeking. If you’re an urban dweller, then you might consider Union Hill, River Market or Quality Hill. There are dozens of loft and condominium options and newly revitalized neighborhoods. Want something more family-friendly, but still close-in? Prairie Village, Brookside and Waldo have long been popular options and were some of the city’s first suburban, planned neighborhoods.
If it’s new construction you’re after, you’ll likely have to look further south (South Overland Park/Olathe), east (Lee’s Summit), west (Lenexa and Shawnee) or even north (Highlands of Weatherby). No matter what your family is looking for, we can help! The Cami Jones & Company team has decades of combined experience helping clients buy, sell or both.
