I have started to report Waldo home sales stats in this blog each month as suggested by a reader. The geographic boundaries I am using are: 85th St to the south, Gregory to the north, State Line to the west and Troost to the east. There is a huge range of prices in this area, and already prices are up compared to one year ago. Let’s look at the numbers:
In January 2014, 16 single family homes sold. The median price was $120,000 and 112 days on market.
In January 2013, 23 single family homes sold. The median price was $97,500 and 70 days on market.
Although more units sold in January 2013 and in a shorter amount of time, the median price was higher this year. As I mentioned, the range of prices in this area is all over the board: last month the lowest sales price was $36,000 and the highest was $299,000.
Currently there are approximately 74 homes for sale in the Waldo area with a median sales price $130,000. The lowest list price is $29,900 and the highest is $374,900. I think we will see strong sales for Waldo once again in 2014!
