Armour Hills (Brookside, Kansas City MO) March 2017 Home Sales Stats

 

 

 

Buyers are snapping up new listings in Armour Hills this spring! Most new listings go under contract within the first few days of hitting the  market.  Let’s look at the March 2017 home sales for Armour Hills, and a comparison to last year.

 

March 2017                                              

 

Median list price:      $325,000                          

Median sales price:  $325,000

Number of homes sold:  6  

Days on market:             39

 

Four of the five homes that sold last month in Armour Hills were over $300K, pushing the median sales price up. Notice it was only a few days before the new listings went under contract.   



Now let’s look at year to date:

 

Jan-March 2017

                                                   

Median list price:      $395,000                                    

Median sales price:  $395,000

Median sales price:    $382,000

Number of homes sold:   57

Days on market:              34

 

So far, prices are up 29% over first quarter 2016.  However, most of the increase is due to more expensive homes selling this year over same period one year ago.  Currently in Armour Hills there are four homes listed, with a median price of $312,000 and 18 days on market.
