Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: February 2015

Brookside (Kansas City MO) Home Sales - Jan 2015

Last year, 291 single family homes sold in the Brookside zip code of 64113.  That averages to about 24 homes per month.  In 2015...we are getting off to a slow start.  Let's look at the specifics: 

 

In January 2015, eight homes sold in the Brookside area.  The median list price was $279,500 and the median sales price was $275,000.  Average days on market: 23.

 

In January 2014, thirteen homes sold.  The median list price was $299,950 and the median sales price was $295,000.  Average days on  market:  38.

 

THe highest closed sales price in January 2015 was $930,000 and lowest was $170,000.

 

Although we are behind in unit sales compared to one year ago, sales will pick up.  January is typically a slow month for closings, and inventory is  low, especially in the $225-350K range.  The busy spring buying season is just around the corner so these numbers will go up as we head into warmer weather.

 

Currently there are 60 single family homes for sale in Brookside (zip 64113) with a median list price of  $409,000 and 123 days on market. The higher median price reflects the fact that the lower priced homes are selling fast as the higher priced ones sit on the market longer.
