Yes, I am one of those that buys all kinds of plants to put in our garden every Spring.   And, yes, I am one of those that says that when the heat hits later in the summer that I will gladly make sure to water those new, sometimes “costly” plants.

Living in Prairie Village KS means that we live amongst some of the most beautiful tree lined streets in the entire Metro.  Why not just add additional beauty to our yards by planting those ever beautiful flowers as soon as the weather allows.  How beautiful they are!

And then…the heat hits and hits and hits . Triple digit heat.  STOP…enough watering! 

Well, I guess stopping watering the plants is not such a great idea.  But, here are some tips that may be helpful:

4 Ways to Rescue Your Plants From The Heat Wave

I guess these tips will be helpful to me next year when the pain of the heat and watering become just a memory and I once again make that Springtime trip to the garden center.  I think this is true for all my Prairie Village KS home neighbors. 🙂

I came across this article that explains some of the signs to look at to determine if we are in a real estate recovery.  You will see that a real estate recovery is heavily contingent upon the status of the foreclosure market. 

REALTOR® Magazine-Daily News-Signs of a Real Estate Recovery?.

I think it is important to continue to monitor Prairie Village Kansas home foreclosures that are for sale.  In monitoring those Prairie Village Kansas homes that are currently for sale in the MLS system, it appears that there are 3 homes currently under contract and indicated as a foreclosure along with 1 still active.  

This is not to saythat there are not additional Prairie Village Kansas foreclosures on the market for sale that are not advertised as such in MLS.  However, it is my opinion that we do not have an excessive quantity of Prairie Village Kansas foreclosures on the market at this time.  However, based on the Realtor Mag article, I believe it is important to continually monitor the forecloure inventory to watch for signs of any significant changes that may affect our Prairie Village Kansas home neighbors.  I will be updating this data with future posts in hopes of providing quality information for valuing our Prairie Village Kansas homes.

One of the first things you notice when you are in Prairie Village Kansas, is the number of beautiful tree lined streets.  So many folks that I sell homes to in Prairie Village, bHouse with pine trees in the front yarduy largely due to their love of the mature trees.  I am a huge believer that one of the ways to add value to your Prairie Village Kansas City home is to plant trees on your property and to maintain the great trees you have. 

It is never too late to plan ahead for when you sell your Prairie Village home.  When it comes time to sell your Prairie Village KS home, you will definitely find that the majority of buyers are excited about the added value of your landscapping and trees.  Below is an article that I came across that helps inform you about the positive impact that planting trees has.
