Find Your Dream Home in the Barry Brooke Community
In a growing market like Kansas City, there’s certainly no shortage of new communities popping up all over town. Whether that be in the heart of the city or north of the river, there’s certainly something out there for any potential vision you could dream of. However, the amount of options available can seem a little daunting in the beginning. You’ll need to make decisions on new construction vs. resale, number of bedrooms/bathrooms and of course, the surrounding area. And if you opt to go the new construction route, you’ll want to consider which builder is really capable of making your dream home a reality!
Here at Hearthside Homes, we’ve been honored to be selected as a builder in many new developments. These are spread all throughout Kansas City, Parkville, Liberty and Kearney. In a sense, each community has its own personality. From the amenities offered to the general vibe, we truly mean it when we say there’s a community perfect for everyone! One in particular that we’ve been involved with has been the Barry Brooke community. Throughout this blogpost, we’ll highlight some notable qualities of this beautiful Kansas City neighborhood, as well as an inside look at a recently sold Barry Brooke home!

Do Your Homework!
As always, the best piece of advice we can give to prospective homebuyers is to do your homework before signing your name on the dotted line! If that purchase happens to be a resale home, you’ll want to make sure all of the necessary inspections have been completed and that you’ll have the peace of mind that no unforeseen nightmares will pop up a couple of years down the road.
On the flipside, if you’re opting to pursue a new construction home, it’s extremely important to make sure you’re 100% confident in the builder you choose to work with! Due to a home being such a large investment, you’ll want a building process that’s easy to follow and a builder that’s consistently proven to be capable of producing a superb end-product! We compiled a complete homebuilding checklist in one of our recent blog posts! However, here’s a few topics you’ll want to discuss before finalizing anything:
- References/Reviews – Does the builder have any proven examples of satisfied customers? Google reviews are a great place to gauge this!
- Warranty – Obviously, if you’re building a new home, you don’t expect anything to be wrong. If some hiccups do occur though, you’ll want to make sure you’re covered!
- Timeline – Building a home is an exciting process! At the same time though, the last thing you want is an estimated 6 month project to drag on for a few months past the estimated completion date! Make sure they have a system in place where you can stay updated on the progress and any timeline changes.
