Armour Hills (Kansas City MO) Aug 2018 Home Sales Report

Quite a few homes closed in Armour Hills last month--our subdivision continues to be one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Brookside!  Below are the stats and year-to-date comparisons:

 

August 2018                                                              August 2017

Median list price:    $327,450                          Median list price:   $285,000

Median sales price:    $322,500                       Median sales price:   $285,000

No. of homes sold:       10                                 No. of homes sold:    11

Days on market:          22                                  Days on market:        19

 

It's unusual for there to be such a large difference in the YTD sales price--over $37,500--however last August, more of the lower priced AH homes closed.  The lowest price last month was $217,500 and the highest was $370,000.

 

Now for year-to-date numbers:

 

Jan-Aug 2018                                                    Jan-Aug 2017

Median list price:     $315,000                       Median list price:      $315,000

Median sales price:  $320,000                       Median sales price:    $312,500

No. of homes sold:      55                                No. of homes sold:     71

Days on market:         10                                 Days on market:        7

 

Home values are up 1.5% over last year at this time and fewer homes have sold--the days on market are about the same.  Note actual sales prices are over list price for the year--indicating strong buyer interest and multiple offer situations.

 

Currently there are six homes for sale in Armour Hills, with a median list price of $394,950 and 53 days on market.
