Just 18 months ago, you'd be hard pressed to find a condo owner that would entertain a lease purchase arrangement. Now 40% of condo owners and developers in Kansas City have condos in ownership buildings for rent.
So if you've been thinking about moving from the suburbs into the city, why not rent a condo if you're on the fence about owning. That way you can see if you love the lifestyle, arts, walking, energy and entertainment.
Condo rentals general aren't inexpensive though. Most owners are trying to cover their mortgage payments and some of the home owner's expenses.
Want a two bedroom condo for rent? I have a penthouse at The Vista in KCK for $1250 a month and a luxury furnished apartment in The Hemingway for $2000 per month. I also have a 2 bd/2bth on the fourth floor at the Metropolitan downtown for $1450 a month.
Want a one bedroom condo for rent? Ask me about my furnished 800 s/f unit on the 7th floor of The Hemingway for $1100 a month.
