A red-hot housing market and new home construction in Staley Hills have kept onsite community managers and ReeceNichols real estate agents Deb DiPonio and Sara Stucker and the homebuilders they work with busy this spring.
“Our buyers are finding that their current homes are selling within hours of coming on the market, often times with multiple offers over the list price,” said DiPonio. “This fast-paced housing market has driven the demand for new homes, especially those that are completed as many people need to move in four or five weeks. Our builders have been pushing to keep available inventory for buyers to choose from.”
There are currently seven move-in ready homes to choose from in Staley Hills that include reverse 11/2-story, 11/2-story and 2-story floor plans with prices starting in the upper $300,000s.
Inventory homes are constructed by an experienced team of builders including Aspen Homes, Freeman Custom Homes, McFarland Custom Builders, New Mark Homes, Olympus Custom Homes, Robertson Construction and Summit Custom Homes.
“One of the things homebuyers love most when they visit Staley Hills is the variety of floor plans and builders they have to choose from,” explains DiPonio. “Not only does this allow them to select a home that meets the needs of their family, but they appreciate the variation of front elevations keeps the neighborhood from looking cookie-cutter and gives each resident a home that is unique.”
Situated north of MO-152 off N. Woodland Avenue and Shoal Creek Parkway, Staley Hills is close to many conveniences such as Zona Rosa and has excellent access to major highways, Kansas City International Airport and downtown Kansas City.
Staley Hills provides residents a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with two dramatic water features bordering the community’s entrance, a crystal clear swimming pool, scenic walking trails and beautiful, stone-clad homes lining the streets. A large playground and can be found within a short walking distance in the recently completed first phase of Anne Garney Park.
The community’s latest amenity, Benton House of Staley Hills, will open next month providing high-quality assisted living and memory care just west of Staley Hills. Benton House will feature 59 apartment style suites situated around two lushly landscaped courtyards and provide several areas for residents and their friends and families to gather for meals, entertainment and conversation.
“This area has seen a tremendous amount of growth in the past few years, fueled mostly by its accessibility to some of the area’s major employers and inclusion in the attendance boundaries of North Kansas City School District’s Staley High School,” said DiPonio. “The addition of Benton House will allow generations of families to live close by and is one more reason why people will want to call Staley Hills home.”
Construction is well underway for the next phase of Staley Hills that will include a new entrance off of N. Woodland Avenue and 63 homesites, many of which will back to green space.
DiPonio has been contacted by numerous buyers interested in building a home in the new phase.
“We anticipate having these homesites available for reservation by mid-summer,” she explains. “However, I encourage anyone interested to stop by the information center or give us a call so we can send you additional information as it becomes available.”
All seven available inventory homes are currently open daily from 11am to 6pm during the Spring Parade of Homes.
