Prairie Village…one of my favorite neighborhoods in the Kansas City area! This small suburb also continues to be a popular area for homebuyers. Below I have outlined the single family home sales statistics* for January 2012 for Prairie Village, KS:
In January 2012, 25 homes sold. The lowest sales price was $62,000 and the highest sales price was $989,000. Average list price was $232,612; average sales price was $228,320. Average days on market: 107.
In January 2011, 18 homes sold. The lowest sales price was $65,000 and the highest sales price was $525,000. Average sales price was $183,161, average list price was $191,119. Average days on market: 92.
Average sales price is way up for 2012—however, keep in mind the higher priced homes bring up the sales price when closed. Still, it’s good to see more homes are selling, at a higher average price even if it’s taken a few days longer to get a firm contract.
Homes in Prairie Village that are updated, well maintained and priced right will always sell. Buyers enjoy the great location and excellent public school district, plus the area parks and shopping centers. I’ll continue to report sales stats every month as we get into the busy spring buying and selling season.
