Waldo (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Stats-May 2019

I remember a time not that long ago when I would show homebuyers in Waldo a pretty nice, small 3 bedroom, one and a half bath home in Waldo for under $200K near 75th and Wornall. Not anymore--buyers are having to go farther south and/or east, plan fix up projects or get less square feet for that price.  Waldo home values continue to rise at a fast pace. Here are the stats, using the boundaries of State Line to Holmes and Gregory to 85th St:

 

May 2019                                                                  May 2018

Median list price:     $229,950                               Median list price:      $224,700

Median sales price:    $227,500                            Median sales price:    $227,000

No. of homes sold:       40                                       No. of homes sold:      40

Days on market:          4                                           Days on market:          9

 

Prices rose over last May, and homes went under contract faster. The lowest sales price was $49,950 and the highest was $375,000.  Here are year-to-date figures:

 

Jan-May 2019                                                            Jan-May 2018

 Median list price:     $225,000                              Median list price:     $195,000

Median sales price:    $219,950                            Median sales price:     $195,000

No. of homes sold:        132                                     No. of homes sold:        161

Days on market:           10                                       Days on market:           15

 

Fewer homes have sold YTD, but home prices up 12.79% over last year.  There is still a huge demand for well maintained, move in ready homes in Waldo, especially near the bustling 75th and Wornall intersection.  Walkability--on just about every Waldo homebuyers wish list!  Currently there are 32 homes for sale, with a median asking price of $242,475 and 29 days on market.
