Good morning Jennifer,
As pointed out by my colleagues below, the marketability of your home depends on many inter-related considerations. Assuming that what you are seeking is accurate, honest information regarding the proper marketing of your home in a timely fashion, contact a reliable Realtor with a proven track record of success. Their training and knowledge will help your real estate transaction be a pleasurable one.

Best wishes,

I'm not sure whether you have received any help with your question. If you would like to email me your information I would be happy to pull together some comps for you. Would there be a way that I could view the home personally? It is one thing to pull comparable homes based on size, number of bedrooms, etc., but I would really need to be able to see the home inside and out to provide you with a truly accurate listing price and advice as to what may or may not need to be done to get the home market ready.

You can reach me at 785-393-8342 or

I look forward to hearing from you,

The Commercial world is a completely different animal. The question is a little bit to vague, because there are many different types of commercial structures, retail, malls, multifamily, office, etc... With in these subgroups you can have different performances. Overall, the commercial world here in Kansas have maintain a good foothold in value. In the upcoming months I perceive no changes. I believe this because a commercial investor purchases property based on what it produces, not on emotions, amenities, or potential appreciations. Return on investments a calculated on current and past performance. Therefore, the result of these approaches and practices in the overall commercial industry, maintain more stable values.

Hopefully this helps!

The source is the Lawrence MLS, which as previously stated, is not public and we as Realtors are not allowed to post the addresses of SOLD properties unless we personally SOLD them. Any of the other 239 Lawrence Realtors could verify that the number as of yesterday was 702. Today, in the past year, it was 698. Your source is Yahoo and that is not a valid source for real estate SOLD data as was proven earlier when I stated the Active listings for Lawrence and provided the website that shows that exact number of Active listings. The only way to see the accurate list of the 698 that SOLD in the past year would be to sit alongside one of the 240 Realtors while they logged in to the Lawrence MLS and searched for all the SOLDs in the past year. Laura, Lisa, and Marilyn are the other 3 Lawrence area Realtors who have answered this question. You could contact them and get the exact same number of 698 SOLD from today 12-23-11 back one year to 12-23-10. If you would have asked them yesterday, it would have been 702. ... more
