Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City

Brookside (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report-Jan 2020

This is going to be a quick blog, as I start 2020 reporting home stats.  I will just be posting January numbers with comparisons to 2019--as there is no YTD figures until next month.

 

So, here are the figures for single family home sales in Brookside, using the zip code of 64113:

 

January 2020                                                               January 2019

Median list price:     $415,000                                       $350,000

Median sales price:  $400,000                                       $339,000

No. of homes sold:        7                                                  10

Days on market:          44                                                  31

 

Prices took a significant jump but with so few homes selling, I think the more expensive homes went under contract last month.  Fewer homes did close compared to last January, and they sat on the market longer.  As we get into the warmer weather, more listings will come on --and more sales will follow!

 

Currently there are 22 active listings in Brookside, ranging in price from $289,000 to over $7 million.
