Your home says a lot about you (never mind the mess in my kitchen). Where do you live? What are your favorite features? How did you decorate? 

As you may know, the housing market is still crazy for buyers. There just simply aren’t enough homes to go around. Listings are going fast, so it helps to know what kind of home best fits your needs.

Enter: KCtoday’s housing personality quiz

How it works

This quiz will ask you six simple questions about your ideal next home. You’ll be able to choose one answer from a selection of options, and the result will hopefully sum up your general preferences, tastes, hopes, and dreams. 

Note: These results are only single-family houses. We did not include condos or rentable units, even though both of those are great options depending on your stage of life. 

The fun part? You don’t need to be ready to buy a home to take the quiz. We just like playing games and looking at cool local homesdon’t you?

Your answers indicate that you’re practical, easy-going + budget conscious. This ranch-style home is a straight shooter, and that’s exactly what you need. Like much of this area, the older home dates back to 1910 — but it was remodeled in 2018. There’s garage space for three cars, granite countertops, hardwood floors, and even a covered deck. It also doesn’t hurt to be less than 10 minutes from downtown.
