2018 Greater Kansas City Home Show

The 2018 Greater Kansas City Home Show is right around the corner!  The Home Show is presented by The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (HBA).  The Home Show has been a Kansas City tradition for 70 years.  Every year, thousands of area homeowners visit the Home Show for the latest in ideas and inspiration for their homes.  The Home Builders Association held Kansas City’s first home show in 1948.   Therefore, the annual event has become the go-to showcase for home improvement, technology, and design ideas as well as a fun-filled day with activities for all ages.  The event will be held at Kansas City’s Bartle Hall Convention Center in downtown.

Spring home shows often spur people to tackle small (or major) home improvement projects or even look for a new home to purchase.  And new construction continues to be as big as ever.  We recently profiled 5 south Johnson County neighborhoods where listings are moving quickly and properties are hot, both new construction and resale.
