Some Positive (and Not-So-Positive) News for Missouri Homeowners
Forbes Magazine has ranked Kansas City fifth in its “Best Cities for Home Sellers” list.
This is good news for Kansas Citians, who have been largely spared from the harshest wrath of the current housing “correction.” Saint Louis residents haven’t fared nearly as well, with the latest housing price index indicating year-over-year price declines of 5.2 percent. In fact, Forbes lists Saint Louis as number 4 in its “Riskiest Real Estate Markets” list.
Leading Kansas City on Forbes’ list were San Jose, Calif., San Francisco, Calif., Salt Lake City, Utah, and Austin, Texas.
