A mild winter has the home buying and selling season off to an early start in Hunt Midwest Residential’s master planned communities. In fact, the number of home sales nearly doubled compared to this time last year.
“The low inventory of new and resale homes on the market is driving a lot of our traffic,” said Jenni Mann, marketing manager for Hunt Midwest Residential. “People are finding that their homes are selling so quickly that they are left scrambling to find their next home. It’s a complete turnaround from where we were just three or four years ago.”
Home builders in the Northland have been busy keeping up with the demand.
“We’re grateful to work with a fantastic team of home builders who continue to keep a variety of quality homes available for buyers,” said Mann. “Real estate agents know that they can bring their buyers to any one of our communities to see a wide selection of floor plans. Our onsite community managers have years of new homes experience and enjoy walking people through the process of building or buying new.”
Move-in ready homes are now available in six of Hunt Midwest’s Northland communities.
With 16 homes starting in the upper $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 two community swimming pools, each with a cabana, children's spray ground, playground, five acre lake, picnic area, walking trails and more than 40 acres of parkland and natural areas. Students in Benson Place attend the highly sought-after Liberty School District.
A brand new model row and six inventory homes are now 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. A limited number of homesites remain backing to the Shoal Creek Golf Course, and homes start in the mid $300,000s.
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.
Surrounded by trees and greenspace, 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 M-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.
Ten 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 homesites backing to trees and greenspace.
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, now bustling with construction, offers a variety of walkout homesites 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.
Aspen Homes, Brookeview Homes, Ernst Brothers Home Construction and Summit Custom Homes have 10 homes in various stages of completion, allowing homebuyers the opportunity to choose their finishes. Prices start in the mid $300,000s.
Treed homesites and gorgeous inventory homes sit nestled within Running Horse, a growing neighborhood attracting the choosiest homebuyers.
Two move-in ready homes are available to tour by appointment. These include the popular Ashton floorplan, a 1.5-story with two bedrooms on the main floor and two in the finished, walkout lower level. The Spruce II, a craftsman style two-story, has four large bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. These homes 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 homesites 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.
