Leawood KS Home Sales Report - 2015

Leawood Kansas...one of the most popular Kansas City suburbs to live in.  You can find older homes on windy streets, shaded by tall trees and friendly neighbors, or recently built  homes with all the amenities of new construction. Home values in Leawood are increasing--so let's check the stats for single family home sales in Leawood for 2015:

 

In 2015:

*531 homes sold.

*The median list price was $450,000.

*The median sales price was $440,000.

*It took an average of 48 days for a home to go under contract.

*43 homes sold for over $1 million.

In comparison to the previous year 2014:

*490 homes sold.

*The median list price was $449,972.

*The median sales price was $435,000.

*It took 48 days for a home to go under contract.

*34 homes sold for over $1 million.

 

In 2015, the median price of a home rose just over 1%, and 8% more homes sold. Rising prices and more units sold are positive for buyers and sellers:  Leawood continues to be a sought after location for buyers who want to purchase knowing property values are on the upswing.  Sellers can be assured they are building equity in their homes.  And of course, the teardown/rebuild trend continues to be strong in Leawood.

If you are thinking of buying or selling a Leawood home in 2016--I would be happy to provide specific data for you.  Contact me at mary.hutchison@kansascityhomes.com.
