The Spring Parade of Homes, which opens today and runs through May 11, promises to one of the best and busiest in the past several years, even surpassing the 2013 Spring Parade, according to the Rob Ellerman Team of Reece Nichols Realtors.
The Rob Ellerman Team represents 12 new-home communities throughout the metropolitan area featuring 25 homes on the Parade, which is presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City. Whether Parade visitors are looking for a new home in the Southland, Northland or Johnson County, the Ellerman Team said they will see a variety of options in their communities.
“In our Rob Ellerman Team communities, we have a lot of new floor plans, new phases, new builders and a ton of furnished models with new and exciting colors, designs and upgrade options,” said team leader Rob Ellerman.
He added that the fast home-buying pace of 2013 has continued into 2014, driving interest in the Spring Parade of Homes.
“Homes are selling so quickly that builders are putting up more specs and most are selling before they are completed,” Ellerman said. “Based on the traffic we’ve already had in our communities since the first of the year, we expect this Spring parade is going to bethe
busiest we have seen in the past couple of years.”
Homes on the Parade will be open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily today through May 11.
“With the interest rates still low and prices on the rise, the urgency is there if you are thinking of buying a new home,” Ellerman said. “I hear buyers say they are going to wait a year and it makes me wince.
“You can’t out-save the market,” he added. “If the rates go up just a little, with appreciation and price increases, most buyers end up losing way more than they saved. We have plenty of loan programs for any type of buyer and we can show them how to save more money buying right now versus waiting.”
The Rob Ellerman Team also is available to help buyers who need to sell their current home.
“If you are worried about selling your current home, with offices in Parkville, Overland Park and Lee’s Summit, our team specializes in helping sell it quickly so you can move into your new home,” Ellerman said.
In fact the Rob Ellerman Team is ranked No. 2 with over $128 million in sales and over 560 homes sold, among all Realtors in the metropolitan area by the Kansas City Business Journal for the third year in a row.
