Hello, I rent an apartment at W 89th & Glenwood Ct in Overland Park KS and my rent goes up $25 every year and now there is going to be new complex next door which is being built right now. When I say next door I mean from my balcony it's location is about 100 feet away on the south side of W 89th st. It's going to be a 420 unit complex that is going to block out our south view and create more noise and traffic. Our landlord did not warn us of this new construction and we have been dealing with lots of dust and tons of noise. We pay $719 for a 2 bed 1 bath 825 sqft apartment plus $35 in water and that seems very high to me for this area. Will this new complex make our rent go even higher or will it force our rent down? Our units were built sometime between 1972 and 1975 and they don't get much upgrading unless something breaks and even then it's the cheapest option fix available. The location is great but the the fact that the rent keeps going up is not great especially now with the monstrosity being built next door!... more
This home is in the Shawnee Mission School District. Previous MLS information shows that the elementary school is Overland Park, the middle school is Westridge and the senior high is SM West. This should be verified through the school district - this link may help - http://www.smsd.org/about/pages/boundaries.aspx. Good luck.... more

Please feel free to contact me about any property.
You are considering a maintenance provided property. All of these communities have a monthly HOA. $125 per month is very reasonable. They can be quite a bit higher than that in other maintenance provided communities. When someone is wanted this type of property they are expecting to pay a monthly fee for these services.
In regards to the housing market in Shawnee over the next two years, no one can predict that or any other area for that matter. However, a realtor can run comps for you and give you a history of that area for comparable properties.
With all that being said, there can be a big difference from one HOA to another. I would suggest consulting with your realtor. If you don't have one, I would be happy to assist.
First of all, clarification...did you ask this question a few months ago?
Overland Park and Leawood continue to be some our strongest markets. And as the economy improves, these markets will rebound the fastest because of their desirability.
With that being said, When are you moving? Can I apply for the job of being your Buyer's agent? I mean, you do want a STRONG and EXPERIENCED (20 years and over 800 homes sold) agent, right? Let's go for it! Talk to you soon. Laurie... more
That is a great question. Part of it is forecasting, which is hard to do. And, the other part is looking at the history of growth in Kansas City Metro, which of course, you have full access to. In your quest for the "best investment", do you also think about live-ability, affordability, and lifestyle? If you answer those questions then you must ask yourself if you will be living in your home for a "long-term", and if you will even get the opportunity to reap that gain. Maybe you should be looking for a short-term growth opportunity. Is there such a thing in real estate?
sounds like you may have a home that is sitting on the market. Lisa, do you know what your agents average days on market is? The average for the entire area is much more than this area, but you should not still be for sale. Are you?... more
