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.

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?

Some selected markets will improve a bit. Most markets will go down. The increase in prices seems to just about reflect the same $8k people got free. What a coincidence.

A lot of people will either 1 stop looking or 2 not be able to get a down payment once the $8k goes away.

The option arms will be causing a lot more foreclosures over the next few years, starting right about now.

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

Rent prices in Overland Park vary. North O P is less expensive usually.
Craig's List, Sun newspaper, Kansas City Star, & are good places to look.
