So you want to buy a house in Johnson County Kansas, Great! So how do you go about saving that payment? The good news is that recent changes by mortgage lenders allow you to purchase a home with as little as 3% down payment on a conventional mortgage and 3.5% on FHA. 1. Gift Funds - This is probably the quickest and easiest way to gather your down payment nest egg. Both conventional and FHA mortgages allow 100% of your down payment to be gifted to you by a family member, friend or secret admirer.  Insider tip: Tell your parents that you want to move back into the basement at home to save a down payment, check books open quickly after this discussion.Click Here to See all Homes for sale in Johnson County2.

The year 2014 marked a major turning point in the real estate market for Overland Park and Johnson County Kansas. For the first time since the housing market crashed in 2007 we saw consistent home price appreciation in resale homes and a sizable increase in new home construction. However, something was still missing. Have a question for the Russell Home Team? Click Here So what was missing? First time homebuyers. First time homebuyers normally make up 33 to 35% of all home purchases. In 2014 we saw that number drop to a historicall low 26%. This blog is the first in a series exploring why first time buyers are not purchasing homes and what can be done to reverse this trend and help make purchasing that first home possible.

As 2014 comes to a close it is a good time to reflect on the past year. As a resident of Hampton Place and the # 1 listing agent I like to keep my fellow home owners up to date on recent sales and trends. See All Hampton Place Homes For Sale at www.HamptonPlaceHomeListings.com Hampton Place continues to be a destination subdivision for families, the combination older & newer homes appeals to a broad array of would be homeowners, especially younger buyers wanting to move into the Blue Valley School District. While the number of homes Sold in 2014 was just  below that of 2013, it can be explained by a supply issue and not one of demand. See All Homes for Sale in Johnson County at www.SearchJocoHomes.com   As we move into 2015 we should see a continued demand for Hampton Place homes. A nor...
