Location, Lifestyle and LivabilityEveryone knows the old real estate mantra, “Location, Location, Location”. That was an apt philosophy for many years, and it still has some relevance today. But times have changed. For most home buyers, it’s becoming less about where they want to live and more about how they want to live. Perhaps it’s time to update the old triple “L”  real estate saying to “Location, Lifestyle, and Livability”.

Every time a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes agent helps a client find the perfect home, it’s special. But for Blue Valley Agent Lori Lange, a recent homeownership story involving the smallest house of her career was especially memorable. Not only was the home tiny, but the client was quite diminutive as well. It was a perfect match and it never would have happened without a little luck and a lot of love from Lori.

Like many agents at BHGRE Kansas City Homes, Lori supported the company’s annual ‘Go for the Green’ food drive that takes place every year during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. She donated to the drive which benefits Harvesters food bank to help feed the less fortunate in Kansas City. And like everyone who donates,

Every year, when February 14th rolls around we take the time to show our family and loved ones just how much we care about them.

Bring in Some Bling

No one’s suggesting you buy your home a tennis bracelet or a ruby ring. But you can still get it something nice to make it look and feel pretty. A new piece of art, fancy end table or a decorative lamp may only be one gift on one day for your home, but you get to admire it all year long.

Everything really could ever want is here… big city amenities, an exciting nightlife scene, highly livable suburbs, major league sports, arts, and culture… this list goes on.

Foody's
