Currently living in midtown Kansas City, which seems to be one of the low-cost places people are moving to. Combined with a slow revitalization of the urban core, houses in this part of the city have been trending upward for the past couple of years. We bought this house in July 2019 for ~$112k. I believe we could sell it now for around $140-$150k without having made any significant changes aside from some landscaping work. The house is a 4bd/3ba built in 1921. Mechanicals are in good shape and the kitchen and bathrooms were renovated by the previous owner.
More to the point, my wife just took a job in another city. My work is fully remote and I don’t expect that to change any time soon. I’m wrapping up my bachelor’s in December and we have the option to sell after the 2-year mark in July or to wait until I graduate. Of course waiting would be easier for me since I have work and school commitments, but I’m concerned we would lose out on the hot market by doing that. Thoughts?
