January 2024 Quick Overland Park Real Estate Stats You Need to Know

Real estate is always a hot topic and here are some January 2024 quick Overland Park real estate stats you need to know. Whether you are considering selling your home or not, everyone wants to know what the local market is doing.

These are December 2023 stats for the Greater Kansas City area as those sales are completed. As you can see, the days on the market increased over the previous month. The average days from listing date to contract date was 41. That’s over a month of having your home on the market. Also noteworthy is the fact that while the average sales price may have increased, homes are currently no longer selling for over asking price. That makes it a perfect time for buyers to buy. Mortgage rates may be up from last year, but you also won’t be paying thousands of dollars over asking price. There were also 5,267 homes for sale in the metro area.

Finding Your Forever Home Will Quickly Change Your Life

The concept of finding your forever home often elicits thoughts of where you’ll spend the rest of your life. However, determining the right time to make such a move requires careful consideration of many factors. This blog post explores certain key indicators that 2024 might be the year to start searching for your forever home. And once you do, you’ll never look back. Your life will be changed so quickly.

Financial Stability

One of the most crucial factors to consider when finding your forever home is your financial stability. First of all, be sure to look at your current financial situation, including income, savings and debt.  Furthermore, are you in a financial position to afford the home you desire? Now is the time to get your finances in order and know what you can do financially before you consider searching for your forever home. Contact me here if you need help with a mortgage loan or want to get creative in your financing.

Long Term Goals

Be sure to reflect on your long term goals, both personal and professional. If you know it’s time for you to downsize and get settled in while you still can, it might be time to settle into your forever home in 2024. The real truth is if you don’t feel like doing it now, you certainly aren’t going to feel like it a year or two from now. Needless to say, you’re not getting any younger.

Family Considerations

Do you have a desire to downsize to be closer to family? If so, your forever home could take you out of the area. Be sure to research your options to be closer to family in a new city. Finding your forever home can be easier with an introduction to a Realtor in your new destination. I have 35 years of connections to Realtors all over the country. Reach out to me and I’ll introduce you to the perfect agent that will find homes for you that aren’t even on the market yet.

Market Trends

I always say the right time to finding your forever home is when you are ready. Waiting for the market trends to be perfect when you’re getting up in years, might not be in your best interest. What I know for sure is the longer you wait to downsize, the harder it becomes. But remember…it’s your stuff and your responsibility. Do it now while you still can.

Declutter to Downsize

If your goal is to declutter your life to downsize your home, 2024 might be the right time to get started to make it happen. While you may still need help from friends or family members, it always takes longer than you think when it comes to getting rid of a lifetime of belongings. The most important thing is to know is that it won’t get any easier, the longer you wait.

Finding Your Forever Home

Deciding when it’s time to move to your forever home involves a careful evaluation of all of the above considerations. You should be able to make a well-informed decision that aligns with your goals and dreams of settling into a home that better suits your current and future lifestyle.
