Re: Real Estate Listings of Interest (Metrowide)

A realtor lying about sq ft? I'm shocked! Shocked! The county records (which also suck) say the above grade living area is 3527 sq ft. The total basement area is 2339 sq ft. The basement is unfinished. Realtors frequently input the total basement area where the finished basement area is supposed to ...

Wasn't it built that way to survive an EMP? Thought I read or heard that somewhere.

Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

Does Johnson County follow the same process? If so, why does it matter if this is what Jackson, County is using it? Johnson County can use the process described in the article because their data is vastly superior to Jackson County's and they attempt to inspect most houses after they sell. They hav...

Re: KANROCKSAS

Went both nights and had a blast.  Everything was done really well and the sound was fantastic at every stage.  Been to a lot of festivals and I don't remember the sound being as good at any of them as it was at Kanrocksas.  The heat wasn't even that bad, especially on Friday.  I am not a Muse or Em...

Re: Pho Hoa - New vietnamese place on Indep. Ave.

I have eaten there twice and it is good.  I got it to go both times so I don't know how the service is but the people at the register were very nice and I ordered what they recommended both times.  Had the shaken beef and the pork and egg (can't remember what they call it).  Both were good, not grea...

Re: NE Side

There is a new noodle place across from the medical school.  I have always been curious about the Dairy Queen.  I have lived here for six and a half years and have never seen it open but it looks like there is stuff inside.

Crazy shit, I have done some work for him in the past.  He was a different cat but liked him.  I am curious by what you mean by his lifestyle.  Are you just talking about his choice of where to live?

Re: Hamburger Mary's

Seems like I see tenants getting evicted all the time after foreclosure.  Don't know if it is the same with commercial property though.  Dangerboy, do you have any info on the new law?  I have not heard about it yet and would like to know more.

Re: Westport demolition

Looks like the buildings are 14 and 16 Westport Rd and 3934 Main St.  All are located in the Southside Historic District which is on the national register of historic places.  3934 Main was approved for demo in 1998 but the permit was suspended.  There is also a notice on 3934 Main, CASE #250-S100  ...

Re: Urban Core Condo Supply (ongoing tracker)

Most of the neighborhoods I have appraised in lately are showing signs of decline.  Increasing DOM, decreasing absorption rate, etc.  I am hoping it is seasonal.

Re: Buying rental property

Getting a loan for the property might be difficult.  From my experience most lenders do not want to make loans that small and when they do, the interest rate is typically very high.  Unless there is a program I don't know about, which is possible, the house has to be owner occupied to get an FHA loa...

Re: Tragic beating in Westport

But it draws in the types of people who are more likely to start fights and just do dumb shit in general. Did crawl for cancer a few weekends ago and we started at AP.  When they opened up the door the bouncer announced to everybody to leave their knives at the door.  Everybody just looked at each ...

Re: Westside Local - Restaurant & Beer Garden

Second time there on Friday night.  Had the chilean sea bass and the date had the mussels.  Both were very average.  I was very jealous of the guy beside me that had the hamburger.  Beergarden was nice.  Very good service.

Re: KC housing prices should rebound by Q3, 2013

I would be very surprised if we return to pre-recession levels by 2013 if prices continue to drop until mid-2011.  Historically, home prices have not increased that quickly.  Especially since the cost of money is going to go up and probably stay that way.  I do hope that things pick back up this spr...
