Doing a drive by a house for sale and listening to sounds over 15 minutes, talking with neighbors, seeing if there are times of day such as a school dismissal that affect traffic, checking for sex offenders, etc. are all good things to do prior to buying a property. When you choose a Realtor to assist you, he will point out even more things than this to check out before buying. Good luck!... more
Thank you for your question. My website reference below will show you prices of new construction by both price ranges as you have mentioned and by geographical areas and features that you need. When you find homes that you are interested in, I will get you additional information such as building material quality, county appraisal, comparison with other homes on the block, and much more. I will also put you in touch with professional lenders better equipped than myself to answer your financing questions. A few builders offer financing themselves and I will let you know which properties qualify for builder financing. Lawrence Kansas real estate appreciates faster than any other real estate in the state so you will be looking at the high end of your $150,000 to $250,000 price range for your brick, new construction Lawrence Kansas property.
