How much is my Prairie Village house worth?

The overall trend is picking up as far as sales volume compared to late 2008. Credit is getting slighly easier to obtain although it will not return, at least anytime soon, to the easy credit access of 2003-2005. Those days are long gone.

Buyers are very interested in the $8,000 tax credit which is spurring interest in the market. This seems to be especially true for the under $250,000 price range. Time is running out to take advantage of the progam as buyers MUST close on or before the end of November 2009

In General, interest rates are at or near generational lows, assuming you have good credit. Now is a great time to buy, while activity is starting up and there is time to get your low low low interest rate locked in.
