Forget vaccines, the real competition this spring is Johnson County real estate.
In the first quarter of 2021, homes on the market in Johnson County, on average, sold for $412,000.
The median sales price in the first quarter was $350,000, up nearly 13% over the same time last year and a 75% increase over the past decade.
The phenomenon is not unique to Johnson County, of course. KCTV reporter Nathan Vickers encapsulated the general mood by retweeting this much-watched TikTok:
