Moving is always difficult – but it’s impossible if there isn’t an actual home available.
We’re talking about middle income houses.
Unfortunately the real estate market has been hit hard during the pandemic. It means there’s a short supply of middle income homes.
Often times, people have to either know about a property ahead of time to get the chance at a new home, but many are forced to be put on a waiting list instead.
Kim Motley, Fort Scott Resident, said, “We moved on it instantly, because we knew as soon as it went up, it was going to be gone.”
The housing market has become incredibly competitive in places like Fort Scott.
“If you see it, you better grab it, I mean sometimes even before it goes on, within minutes, literally minutes.”
Since the pandemic started, less people are wanting to sell, making those sought after properties harder to come by.
