An idyllic Lee’s Summit location in the Raymore-Peculiar School District. Quality-built, affordable new homes designed for minimal maintenance. Family-friendly amenities that include a swimming pool. All of this and more are available at Kensington Farms.

And as the Spring Parade of Homes continues through May 13, prospective buyers are invited to the community to experience all that Kensington Farms has to offer and see why the community is especially popular with one particular group of buyers: current renters interested in purchasing a home.

“Market conditions — including low interest rates — make it more attainable to get into a new home than some prospective buyers might think,” said Kevin Lau, community manager. “At Kensington Farms, monthly mortgage payments can be less than rent.”

As current renters contemplate buying a new home, a common hesitation is maintenance and being prepared to cover an unexpected (and sometimes costly) issue.

Yet those who purchase from Inspired Homes enjoy the peace of mind that comes with an Inspired Homes floor plan, thanks to thoughtfully selected building materials, an incredible warranty and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction.

“We build homes differently, from no site condition costs at the start to our 1-year workmanship, 2-year systems and 10-year structural warranty at completion,” said Todd Lipschutz, president, Inspired Homes.

The Spring Parade of Homes is an ideal time to see the Inspired Homes process firsthand. Kensington Farms features two parade entries, including the community’s model home (entry 101), a two-story Saddleback floor plan with four bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms located at 1421 SW Sapperton Rd.

The second parade entry is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch home that offers 1,505 square feet. Priced at $279,835, the home (entry 102) is located at 1316 Cornwall Rd.

In addition to touring these homes that exemplify Inspired Homes’ customer-focused approach to homebuilding, prospective buyers have more to explore throughout the community. Six inventory homes are move-in ready throughout Kensington Farms, and Lau said that number will likely double by June.

The selection includes all of Inspired Homes’ Kensington Farms floor plans, a mix of ranch and two-story layouts. Prices start in the mid-$200,000s. And for a limited time, Kensington Farms inventory homes are even more affordable. Buyers who purchase one of the available inventory homes and close by June 30, 2018 with Inspired Homes’ recommended lenders, NASB or Franklin American Mortgage Company, will receive $4,000 in closing costs.

That’s not all! Prospective buyers can also choose from several available homesites in Kensington Farms if they prefer to work with Inspired Homes on a personalized home. An appealing variety of floor plans is available, including the just-launched Napa, a reverse 1½-story layout with 2,201 square feet of living space that starts at $269,990.

That exciting pace of construction activity — as well as Inspired Homes’ continual focus on meeting customer demands with new floor plans, an appealing array of standard features and an industry-best 2-10 warranty — encapsulates the Inspired Homes difference.

“This is why we created this business: to be able to provide a home and an experience to more of the market,” Lipschutz said. “We have the opportunity now, between our existing communities like Kensington Farms, as well as our new communities that are starting this year, to grow that platform of an exceptional experience, great value and high quality.”

Buyers who purchase a new home now will be moved into Kensington Farms just in time to enjoy community amenities during the summer months, including a swimming pool, cabana and playground.

Plus, an ideal location near Interstates 435 and 470 give residents easy access to entertainment, shops, dining and points of interest throughout the Kansas City area. Despite that close proximity, Kensington Farms is enveloped in 74 acres of green space, creating a lush backdrop and peaceful surroundings. Given all that Kensington Farms and the surrounding area have to offer, it’s no wonder Money magazine ranked Lee’s Summit one of the “100 Best Cities to Live In in the United States.”
