Had the opportunity to cruise up to Parkville this week to check out a big home in Riss Lake. It was pretty predictable – large, newer, pretty, vaulted ceilings, finished basement with tons of room for kids and parties, big kitchen, big master, the works… As of today, there are 51 homes for sale in Riss Lake with prices ranging from $269,000-$1,290,000. Pretty big range there! It’s such a pretty subdivision – with rolling hills, lots of trees, and a lake (Riss Lake). If you haven’t made the drive to Parkville, it’s super close to downtown KC. Just over the river and to the northwest just a little bit. There’s a great little downtown commerce area with shops and restaurants, and even a brewery. The Missouri River runs along the downtown area, and there is a great park with walking trails and place for farmer’s market and festivals. Seems like a good community to buy into, plus values and development are increasing in the northland.
