Most multiple listing systems now have a feature or stat called "walk score". I suggest you inquire with the Realtor of your choice. Anyway they rate the homes by distance to schools, transportation and shopping and eating establishments in the area, an overall number. This is a great easy to get an answer, the higher the number the better.
Good luck.... more
Yes!! It is possible to find homes for less than $80,000. Is there a reason for that specific amount?
Give me a call and we can chat about what you are looking for and I can email the homes available to you.
That was a loaded question! Did you find your favorite area yet? As a realtor, I would have to say that it depends on your price point, whether you want a neighborhood pool or other amenities, what size and how much privacy you want in your back yard, whether you want a finished or a walkout basement, etc. If you find a home that was built in the last five years, it will probably already have the upgrades you are hoping to find. You may find that Leawood, Lenexa, or Olathe offer newer neighborhoods that are also within a ten or fifteen minute drive to Sprint. I'll be interested to know if you have landed somewhere yet.... more
