“Inventories continue to be tight as we start the new year,” said KAR president, Kathy Minden with Crown Realty in Paola. “The number of active listings at the end of January was the lowest recorded since statewide statistics began being compiled at the beginning of 2010.”

January 2018 Market Highlights

  • Home sales saw another month of positive gains. Homes sold were up 2.2% in January over the same month the previous year. Limited inventory continues, driving up home prices.

This outpaced national home price increases of 5.8% above last year. Kansas homes sold for 97.1% of their list price in January.
  • Mortgage rates continue to climb. The national average commitment rate on 30-year conventional mortgage for the week ending February 15, 2018 was 4.38%, the highest it’s been since April 2014.
