    There are currently 3 homes for sale in Morningside Park. Prices range from $369,900 - 599,950.Morningside Park Avg Price by year

    There are no Pending, Contingent, or BackUp Listings. 

    3 homes sold in Morningside Park so far this year. Prices were $283,000; 425,000; 657,500. Average Days On Market (DOM) is 90. 

    The first chart shows Median Home Sale Price in Morningside Park by year. Before you get excited about that apparent huge price increase, let's talk about what it really means in this specific neighborhood. 

    Morningside Park is right in the heart of Brookside; very popular; great location. There are about 222 homes in the subdivision. Most homes were built in the 19-teens and 20's. They come in a variety of styles and sizes. This is NOT a cookie cutter neighborhood. 

    When figuring out home values, we consider location, size, condition, amenities, and  possible Morningside Park by monthfinancing options. We know that Morningside Park is a highly desirable location in Kansas City. When it comes to each home, though, we must consider the size of the home, lot, and garage spaces. Also, is there a shared drive? 

    The 2nd chart shows Median Home Sale Price by month. Do you see how varied the prices are? That is not the market jumping erratically up and down; the prices reflect the size, amenities, and condition of each home. 

    These homes were solidly built at at time when quality was more important than quantity and speed. Even the smaller homes in Morningside Park display a level of craftsmanship rarely found in modern home builds. Architectural details such as the mouldings, tile work, stone work, leaded glass or stained glass windows, pocket doors, and fireplace mantels add value to a home. 

    With that being said, today's buyers also want some modern components in their home. Things that add value are updated plumbing, updated electric, 200 Amp electric, Google Fiber, modern thermostats, tankless water heaters, extra insulation, and other energy saving features. 

    What else adds value to an older home? Updated kitchens and baths, closet space, pantry space, main floor bedroom, main level laundry, outdoor entertaining areas, and garage space. Remember, some of these Morningside Park homes were built when not everyone had an automobile. Balancing the home's attractive attributes with the outdated features is something people do when shopping for a home in Brookside.

    The rain has stopped and the trees are in bloom! What a gorgeous weekend for the Brookside Art Fair! 

    Easter BunnyThe bunny is not part of the Brookside Art Fair - he was out for Easter. My photos of last year's Brookside Art Fair are missing but know that there will be paintings, sculptures, jewelry, one-of-a-kind clothing, stained glass, and other art on display at the Fair this year. I hope the people who make the chain mail clothing are coming back.     

    The Art Fair is at 63rd & Wornall Rd.(map) starting tonight, Friday, through Sunday. 

    Kid friendly, dog friendly, loads of art to buy, food vendors, and if you need a break, there are 80 shops to visit in Brookside!

    This is an issue I try to impress upon buyers. Just because a house is listed for sale, you do not have the right to enter the property whenever you like. It is not okay to walk on the lawn or peek in the windows. If you want to see the inside, call your agent. They will make an appointment for you to see the house. When an agent makes an appointment, they have permission to enter the property for the purpose of showing the home to qualified buyers. They are also responsible for following the specific showing instructions for that home and leaving it secured after the showing.

     

    Sellers, Lock Your Doors; Buyers Please Stop Trespassing.  I know I have written about this before, but it bears repeating. 

     

    I received a phone call the other day from a Seller who told me that there were people in her back yard.  This particular Seller had 2 small children who had been playing in the yard earlier.  She had a right to be concerned and also had a right to call the police.  The couple left while we were on the phone.

     

    Another phone call that came from a male Seller on a Sunday morning went something like this:

     

    “Suzie, this may be too much information for you but I don’t sleep with much on.  I got up this morning and walked into my kitchen to make some coffee.  I was standing at the sink putting water in the coffee pot when a man put his face up to the window to try to see inside.  He was as surprised as I was!”

     

     

     

    And yet another call came from an agent who was frantically trying to get an appointment for some out of town buyers who called her from the dock of an occupied lake front property.  The owners were inside watching television. 

     

    Past buyer clients have said to me, “we don’t need to see that house, we went by one day and the back door was unlocked, so we took a look around.  We wouldn’t have gone in if someone lived there.”  The problem is, you don’t know.  The other problem is, it’s trespassing.  And yet another issue is, even if it is a bank owned home, you don’t know if someone else is in there who shouldn’t be and may be more desperate than you for a place to live!  It’s wrong, it’s dangerous and it’s illegal. Stop it!

     

    If you don’t own the property, you have no right to be on the property.  It doesn’t matter that there are signs in the windows, or you don’t want to bother the listing agent or your buyer’s agent. It’s not yours.  We learned that in kindergarten.  We don’t get to stop applying it because we are talking about houses instead of crayons.

     

    A word of caution to Sellers – lock your doors, but Buyers, please stop trespassing.

    The easiest thing would be for me to just show you the 4 homes for sale in that one neighborhood you asked about. The ones that you found on the internet. You say you could 'make do' with any of the homes there. Why would you want to just make do when you could do better? best house for the best price

One that will hopefully sell for more than you pay for it today. So, we can certainly look at all the homes you find on the internet, but how about if we also look at some that may offer you more of what you want for a better price to value?

    1.Describe the basics of what the home must have for your life.  How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need? What kind of space do you need in the common areas? Do you need a guest bedroom? Do you need an office? How much garage space do you need? Is it important for you to have a private drive? Do you need a main floor bedroom? Do you prefer to cook on an electric or gas stove? Do you need a library? Do you need a room with east facing windows for your art studio? Does anyone in your family have special needs we need to consider? Do you need space for mother-in-law or returning college students?     Grandma and grand daughter  

    2.Define the possible locations. How close or far do you want to be from work?

    Do you want to live in a particular school district? 

    Are there friends or family you'd like to live close to? 

    3.Look at your lifestyle. Where do you go on your days off? What do you like to do? Do you like to be able to walk to the grocery store? Do you go out to eat often? Do you want a neighborhood bar within walking distance? Would you like to be near music venues? Do you want to be closer to Nieman Marcus or Target? Do you want to be on a bus route? Would you like a community swimming pool close by, one in your own back yard, or nothing to do with a swimming pool? How about tennis courts or a bike trail? Do you like to garden? Would you prefer a small yard that can be mowed in 10 minutes or as big of a yard as you can get?

    4.Consider the ambiance of the neighborhoods you're considering. Do you want to be in a vibrant, lively neighborhood where people are always walking around and visitng or one that is quieter? Would you enjoy living in a historic house or neighborhood? Do you prefer new construction? Do you prefer a more urban, suburban, or country environment? Do you want your own stables or would you rather board your horses nearby? Do you or would you like to belong to a Country Club? Would you like a lake community? Would you like to live on a golf course? Do you know that more than half of the people who prefer living in golf course communities do not golf? They just like the landscaping around the golf course and the community of people who live on golf courses. (Some of them just like to ride around in the golf carts.)

    5.What would you like your home to have but would not be absolutely essential in your selection? This can be anything. Some people will only live in a Tudor style house while others would absolutely never live in a Tudor. You may need a fenced in yard but that can be added to most any house so one with a fence would be preferable but not essential. Is a fireplace an absolute 'must have' or something that would be nice but not necessary? 

    6.Determine your preferred price range. Figure out how much you are willing and able to spend - all at once if paying cash - or on a monthly basis if using a mortgage to finance part of the purchase price. Make sure it is an amount with which you feel comfortable. This should really be your first step as you will not want to start out looking at pictures of million dollar homes on the internet and then try to satisfy your aspirations on a $400,000 budget. 

    Take some time to think about how you use your home in your daily life. When you sit down for your initial consultation with your real estate agent, tell them everything you can about what you want and need. Taking the time to do this at the beginning will save countless hours of frustration later. 

    Notice that the photo is of people, not a house. Why? Because your home is where you live a big part of your life. It's about the people in your life and the time you share together. Your home is like a stage set in the play that is your life; it's important but the people are more important.

    One of the tenets of the National Association of Realtors© (NAR) is to advocate for the right of the individual to own, use, and transfer real property. For more than 100 years, the NAR has worked to protect property owner's rights as well as supporting or opposing any legislature that would have an effect on property rights or home owners. [i.e. property taxes and the expanded clean water act.]

    I remember when the insurance corporations campaigned to get more control over health care delivery. It took them decades but in 1983 they finally got Congress to support DRG's (Diagnosis Related Groups). That was their toehold and every year after they took more and more control away from medical doctors, other health care professionals, and hospitals. Today, our health care delivery system is in shambles.

    Now I'm watching as bankers, financial corporations, and others try to wrest control of real estate transactions from real estate brokers and agents. If you are not alarmed, you are not paying attention. National Association of Realtors

    I'm sure you receive the same emails I get when a bill is up for vote in Congress. You know the ones, Urgent: Take Action Now! from RPAC or your state and local Realtor© associations. I always take time to make the phone call, sign the petition, and/or send the email or letter to my Congressman voicing my support or displeasure with the bill under discussion. 

    Recently, I've noticed a number of companies offering their services to the general public that concerns me. On the surface, it may seem like a good idea to a homeowner to save money on commission by using these flat fee, limited service, or discount brokers. 

    It's certainly mildly concerning that a homeowner would choose limited service/representation in the transaction of an asset worth several years of their income but more alarming than that is the possibility that this trend continues. The voice of 1 million Realtors© can make an impact with Congress. What will happen to that voice if more and more people leave the field? 

    Already, there are about 800,000 real estate agents and brokers who choose not to belong to the NAR and adhere to our Code of Ethics. We all know agents who left the business during the last few years with the recession, banking debacles, and increasing challenges of making a living as a Realtor©. If our voice becomes weaker, who will stand up and fight for homeowner's rights? 

    The Department of Justice, on this site, seems to be advocating for these reduced service business models. This concerns me on two levels. One, that the DOJ sees fit to steer the public in this manner. And two, that the DOJ does not offer any guidance on how the consumer might choose one of these discount, flat-fee, or limited service brokerages. It seems irresponsible to encourage a homeowner to choose a broker based only on cost. 

    There is a house listed in our MLS now by a flat-fee broker in Florida. I am not familiar with this company but I worked on a transaction with a limited service broker out of California that was a nightmare. They did not return phone calls. They did not know local law and procedure. They did not return documents according to the timeline defined within the real estate contract. They did not inform their client about the Inspection Period procedure, deadlines, or resolution. My workload was twice what it is in a normal transaction with a competent agent on the other side. My client was able to get very good terms for the house they bought but still, it was a nightmare and I felt bad that the seller did not have good representation. 

    The long term effects of consumers migrating away from agent representation to flat fee, limited service, and discount brokerages may not be in the homeowner's best interest. It may seem to save them money on commission but in the end could cost them much more than the perceived savings. And not just on the sale of their property. 

    We, the members of Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors, keep our Heartland MLS up and running with accurate data entered 24/7 as changes occur. Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, and all the others pull from our data. We revise our customizable, standardized contracts annually, with occassional amendments mid-year, to reflect changes in real estate law and local procedures.  We pay dues to KCRAR, Heartland MLS, the State Board, and NAR. This money keeps all the tools going. Our monetary contributions to RPAC and our state and local political action groups assure we have a voice when bills threaten homeowner rights. 

    If enough people sell on the cheap, systems could be developed to shoot them through an assembly line from listing to closing. I'm sure the banks would love to get in on that! All of the niceties could be cut out. Sellers could watch instructional videos instead of having their own personal agent to help them evaluate comps. I suppose companies will come up with all kinds of self-help programs to sell to the homeowner. The fees are low now but I'll bet they rise as more people use them. Eventually, the homeowner could end up paying what we charge now in commission but with far less service and no one who really cares about standing up for homeowners' rights.

    The American Public is giving every indication that they want to see homes, sell homes, and buy homes on the internet - without involving those professional Realtors©. Recent events in my professional work life as well as Pamela Seley with her post Where's The Buy Button? , inspired this post.

    Buy Sell Show me now

    Press the red button and Voila! - anyone can buy that house now!  Just fill in the online form and you're done! Ha! 

     

    Just press the blue button and Voila! - a real estate genie appears in front of the home to open the door at your whim! 

     

    Press the green button, fill in the form, and Voila! - the corporation that owns that website will conveniently remove their commission, fees, and charges before transferring the remaining balance to your account.

     

    Is there any reason this cannot or should not be done? Never mind that Ralph Nader, along with hundreds of thousands of citizens, fought and marched and petitioned Congress for years before winning  rights of representation for people when purchasing real estate. Never mind that sellers really want only qualified buyers coming to view their homes at all hours. 

    Let's just move along and pretend that Consumer Rights Advocacy never happened for real estate transactions. Let's just pretend that this seems convenient and will make everyone happy. Heck, we know the banks will love it, right? Zillow and Trulia will make loads of money. What could possibly go wrong?

    Remember when we let the greedy buggers maneuver control of our health care away from doctors and give it to the insurance corporations? Heck, that turned out just hunky-dory, didn't it?

    Home buyers in Kansas City are often faced with this choice.
    Shall we buy a home that's already updated and remodeled or look for a home that needs some updating? foyer  
     
    The first consideration is how much money the buyers can afford to put into a home on top of the purchase price. New HVAC systems may run from $2,500 up to 20,000+ depending upon the size of the home and the age of the air conditioner and furnace and whether the house has existing duct work. Windows may be another $10,000 or more depending on what type of windows and how many you need. Kitchens and bathrooms are the rooms most often remodeled. It is a good idea to price out various finishes and appliances as you plan the remodel. Removing walls to open up the space between the kitchen and dining, living, or hearth room(s) will require a consultation with a structural engineer. In most cases, the funds for remodeling will need to come out of the buyer's pocket; they cannot be rolled into most mortgages. 
     
    Next, they need to think about how much time they have to either do the work themselves or hire part of it done. Even if they hire contractors to do the work, someone will need to check on the work being done at least daily. Someone will need to pick out colors and materials and coordinate deliveries and installations. 
     
    The final consideration is can you live in the house while the work is being done? If it's just painting and new kitchen appliances, it won't be too inconvenient for too long. If walls are being moved, the electricity needs to be turned off for hours at a time, or plumbing is being rerouted, there may be days that are noisy, dusty, and a need to use the bathroom at the corner gas station. 
     
    The convenience of having the work all done before they move in is nice for those who don't have the time or experience to deal with remodeling and updating. The price of the home will be more than that of a home needing some work. If you are experienced with remodeling and tolerant of the messy inconvenience, there are some great deals out there.

    This is a question heard from buyers quite frequently. They'd like to live in Brookside but are not sure if their budget can accomodate the home they want.  This graph may help buyers get a better understanding of what is available in the area:

    Homes sold in Brookside by price range graph   

    These are the numbers of Brookside homes sold between January 1 and today (20 September 2014) by price range.         . price range percentage sold As you can see, homes priced in the $200-400,000 range (purple and orange on the chart) take up the largest share followed by the $400-650,000 price range (dark red on the chart). Homes priced over $650,000 fall into the luxury category in the Kansas City area. In Brookside, most homes in that price range are going to be closer to Loose Park, Ward Parkway, or Morningside.

    Homes priced under $200,000 in the Brookside area are few; under $160,000 is rare. Buyers planning on spending less than $175,000 will probably also be looking in or near the Waldo area to get the house they want at a price that fits their budget. 

    If someone really wants the Brookside address, they may be willing to accept less space, a shared driveway, shared garage, no garage, or a home that needs some TLC. If the home is in the lower price ranges, they will want to move fast as the house will sell quickly (maybe in a day) and there is a good chance there will be multiple buyers vying for the same property. 

    Homes sold in Brookside 1 Jan - 20 Sept 2014     Brookside is defined as the area south of 55th Street, west of Oak Street, north of Gregory Blvd, and east of State Line. Please refer to the map on your left. 

    Today, there are 101 homes for sale in Brookside. Priced between $168,000 and $4,450,000. The average home price for Active listings is $622,542. 

    There are 23 Pending sales priced between $154,500 and $1,495,000 with the average being $460,904.

    There are 23 homes under BackUp status priced between $169,950 and 949,000 with the average being $423,359. 

    The chart below shows the Average Sale Price of Brookside homes over the last 10 years including all those priced between $150,000 and 650,000. [We removed the lowest priced homes as there have been a few that were distressed in some manner which would skew the results. We also removed the highest priced homes as the luxury home market suffered a few years during the recession and that would also skew the results for the majority of homes in Brookside.]
