Waldo (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report April 2017

Waldo continues to be a hot spot for homebuyers this year.  As prices keep climbing in the 64113 zip code to the north, those who want to buy on a more modest budget look south to 64114.  Those first two sentences exactly what I wrote for the March 2017 stats report.  It’s a trend!!!  These figures are for Waldo single family home sales, using the boundaries of State Line to Holmes and Gregory to 85th:

 

 

April 2017

 

Number of homes sold:    43

Median list price:              $165,000

Median sales price:          $170,000

Average days on market:    4

 

April 2016

 

Number of homes sold:      29

Median list price:              $169,900

Median sales price:          $169,000

Average days on market:    12

 

The highest price sale in Waldo last month was $468,500 and the lowest was $54,000. Note the sales price was higher than list price--because 32 of the homes that closed were at or over the asking price.

 

Here are year-to-date comparisons:

 

Jan-April  2017

 

Number of homes sold:   120

Median list price:            $165,000

Median sales price:        $170,200

Average days on market:  31

 

 

Jan-April  2016

 

Number of homes sold:    100

Median list price:             $169,450

Median sales price           $169,450

Average days on market:   40

 

Prices are up, homes are selling very fast and sellers are getting sticker price.  Waldo isa a very desireable location for homebuyers! Currently there are just 11 active single family homes in Waldo, with a median list price of $170,000 and 8 days on market.
