Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: October 2017

Armour Hills (Kansas City MO) September 2017 Home Sales Report

Armour Hills in Brookside has been one of the hottest neighborhoods for buyers this year--prices are up and homes sell fast.  Here is  the September 2017 home sales report, with comparisons to last year:

 

September 2017

Median List Price:     $311,225

Median Sales Price:   $313,250

No. of Homes Sold:      6

Days on Market:           3

 

September 2016

Median List Price:     $244,950

Median Sales Price:   $247,500

No. of Homes Sold:      6

Days on Market:          39

 

The lowest closed price last month was $195,000 and the highest was $415,000--$16K over the asking price of $399,000.

Checking year-to-date comparisons:

 

January - September 2017

Median List Price:     $314,750

Median Sales Price:   $313,250

No. of Homes Sold:       76

Days on Market:            7

 

January - September 2016

Median List Price:      $269,700

Median Sales Price:    $268,500

No. of Homes Sold:     62

Days on Market:          25

 

So far, median sales prices are up 16% over the same period last year--however I don't think we will finish the year with that high of an increase.  You can see the trend of sellers getting at or over the sticker price for their properties...and a very short time on the market before an offer (or offers!) are made. 

 

Currently there are six homes listed in Armour Hills, with a median price of $317,000 and 32 days on market.
