One of the reasons that Prairie Village KS is such a great place to live is because of the community involvement.  I know from living in Prairie Village that there are several opportunities throughout the year to volunteer our services to make Prairie Village KS a better place to live.

One of the opportunites to volunteer in Prairie Village KS is with the Village Volunteer Program.  This program was developed by the City of Prairie Village to “help bring the community together in assisting residents with correcting code issues which also serves to preserve and protect the value and safety of their property and the community as a whole.” (City of Prairie Village KS).

What a great program to not only help our Prairie Village KS home neighbors who are not able to do the things that are necessary to correct the issues but a way to help maintain the beauty and home values of  Prairie Village Kansas.

Let us know if you have a volunteer opportunity in Prairie Village KS that you would like to share with us.

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. 🙂

Looking for a new Mexican restaurant destination?  I had completely forgotten about one that is located in Prairie Village Kansas.

My husband and I were heading out for a quick dinner and had again decided to head to a fast food Mexican location.  Heading down 95th Street in Prairie Village Kansas, we passed by Kokopelli Mexican Cantina which we had both previously talked about visiting,  but had just never made it there. 

We decided to try it out this time.  Kokopelli Mexican Cantina has a great atmosphere and good variety of Mexican dishes.  While I am certainly not qualified to provide a critique of restaurants, both my husband and myself had great meals and the service was excellent.  They offer the old fashioned fried tacos which we both had and a chicken fluta.  Excellent and the sauces were exceptional.

Now that I have visited this Prairie Village Kansas restaurant, I will be back.  So, if you had forgotten about Kokopelli Mexican Cantina or have not been there, you might want to try it out.

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.
