Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: March 2012

Home Sales are UP in the Kansas City Metro Area!

Personally, I’ve had a strong start to the year and the statistics confirm my experience—sales are up in the area!  Let’s look at the figures for Jackson and Johnson counties:

 

Johnson County KS:

 

§  Sales (YTD): +32.8%

 

§  Avg. Home Sale Price (YTD):-1.0% to $232,102

 

§  New Listings YTD: +13.2% to 981

 


Jackson County MO:

 

§  Sales(YTD): +7.3%

 

§  Avg. Home Sale Price(YTD):+1.9% to $104,992

 

§  New Listings (YTD): +8.2% to 1,111

 

Jackson County still suffering from more foreclosures than Johnson County but it is  encouraging to see increased activity so early in the year.  Overall for the five county area that Heartland MLS serves, home sales are up 15% over last year at this time, and the average home price is up 2.5%.

It’s great to be reporting GOOD news about the housing market!  For detailed statistics about what is happening in your neighborhood, email me.
