Waldo (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report - Jan 2018

Waldo homes did not last long when put up for sale last year--they generally went under contract in less than two weeks and median prices were up 5.6% over 2016. I think demand for Waldo homes will continue to be strong in 2018.  Below is the first report of home sales for the year, using the geographic area of Gregory to 85th St and State Line to Holmes:

 

January 2018                                                         January 2017

 

Median list price:     $164,450                           Median list price:      $159,950

Median sales price:    $160,750                        Median sales price:  $159,000

No. of homes sold:        18                                  No. of homes sold:       27

Days on market:            24                                  Day on market:            36

 

The lowest closed sales price last month was $58,500 and the highest was $295,000. 

 

Currently there are just twelve single family homes for sale in Waldo, with a median list price of $227,500 and ten days on the market. The lowest priced home is $70,000 and the highest is $399,900.
