Those looking to take advantage of the hot housing market are in luck. Five of the Northland’s most popular new-home communities have available homes that allow buyers to move in and settle before the start of the school year.

“The housing market remains strong and a number of buyers have scrambled to find new homes because their existing home sold quickly,” said Jenni Mann, marketing manager for Hunt Midwest Residential. “The home builders throughout our communities have worked hard to keep up with the demand and I’m excited about the inventory homes that are now for sale. Even if you’re in the early stages of looking for a new home, I invite you to visit the on-site sales centers to learn more about the buying or building experience.”

Hunt Midwest Residential has been developing master-planned communities for over 20 years, including Running Horse, The Reserve at Riverstone, Staley Hills, Benson Place and Woodneath Farms.

Treed home sites and gorgeous inventory homes sit nestled within Running Horse, a growing neighborhood attracting the choosiest homebuyers.

Seven homes are currently in various stages of construction, five of which are move-in ready and available to tour by appointment. Homes by Aspen Homes, Sallee Homes and Ernst Brothers Home Construction start in the upper $200,000s.

With a pastoral setting spread over 145 acres, Running Horse is just south of Platte City on Running Horse Road. The community offers residents a swimming pool, playground and paved walking trails that connect to the Prairie Creek Greenway.

In addition to beautiful home sites and family-friendly amenities, a thriving school district and an ideal location have made Running Horse one of the best-selling new-home communities in Platte County.

Although development first began nearly eight years ago in The Reserve at Riverstone, recent improvements have left it looking and feeling like a brand new community.

The second phase of The Reserve at Riverstone opened recently and includes 40 premier home sites, with a limited number backing to open space. Other additions include a brand new community swimming pool, entrance monument and nearly 100 trees and other landscaping at the north entrance off of Tiffany Springs Road.

A reverse 11/2-story home by Sallee Homes is open to tour. This popular plan features hardwoods throughout the main floor, built-ins surrounding the soaring fireplace and two living spaces. An additional reverse floor plan by Ernst Brothers Home Construction and a two-story home by Brookeview Design + Build are also under construction.

Surrounded by trees and green space, Staley Hills offers 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.

Situated off North Woodland Avenue and Shoal Creek Parkway, just north of Missouri 152, 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. It is located within the highly acclaimed North Kansas City School district where students attend Staley High School, New Mark Middle School and Bell Prairie Elementary School.

Two available homes, starting in the low $300,000s, feature the latest in floor plans and interior design. Many more are now under construction in the community’s latest phase which includes home sites backing to trees and green space.

With eight homes starting in the mid $200,000s, Benson Place continues to be a homebuyer favorite. Located in Kansas City, North on 96th Street just west of Flintlock Road, it boasts family-friendly amenities that include a competition-sized swimming pool and cabana, children's spray ground, playground, five-acre lake, picnic area, walking trails and more than 40 acres of parkland and natural areas. A second community swimming pool was recently completed and opened this summer. Students in Benson Place attend the highly sought-after Liberty School District.

Six completed homes starting in the upper $300,000s are available in Woodneath Farms, a destination community with rolling hills, larger home sites and grand residences all located in the Liberty School District on Flintlock Road north of Missouri 152. All homes are required to have brick and stone facades, giving them a classic, timeless look. Woodneath Farms recently opened its most anticipated phase in years, Links III, and a limited number of home sites backing to the Shoal Creek Golf Course remain.

Amenities were designed with families in mind and include a competition-size swimming pool, lake and fountain, walking trails, playground, nature areas, tennis court, picnic pavilion, recreation area, generous landscaping and brick entrance monuments. The Mid-Continent Public Library Woodneath branch and Shoal Creek Elementary are situated on either side of the community’s entrance, adding additional conveniences within walking distance of home.
