Waldo (Kansas City MO) Aug 2018 Home Sales Report

Waldo home values up again..I think I’ve been reporting that every month I share the stats!  August was no exception. Here is the single family Waldo home sales report for August 2018, using the boundaries of State Line to Holmes and Gregory to 85th St:

August 2018                                                              August 2017

Median list price:    $198,000                                Median list price:    $176,000

Median sales price:   $192,000                              Median sales price:  $179,000

No. of homes sold:      37                                        No. of homes sold:   34

Days on market:         28                                         Days on market:    9

The lowest sales price last month was $108,500 and the highest was $355,000.

Here are year-to-date stats:

Jan-Aug 2018                                                      Jan-Aug 2017

Median list price:    $199,975                          Median list price:    $175,000

Median sales price:   $202,750                        Median sales price:   $177,500

No. of homes sold:    266                                 No. of homes sold:     272

Days on market:        16                                    Days on market:     14

Prices are up 14% over last year, and many buyers continue to pay over list price.  Houses continue to go under contract within about two weeks of hitting the market. Waldo is a hot neighborhood!

Currently there are 30 active single family homes in Waldo, with a median list price of $217,000 and 33 days on market.
