Home sales in Brookside continue to slow down, as is the usual this time of year. When the weather gets colder, and darkness falls at 5pm...interest in home-buying slows down. Still, prices are up! Here are the home sales stats for October 2014, reflecting closed sales in zip code 64113:
In October 2014, 25 homes sold. Median list sales price was $340,000, and median sales price was $320,000 with an average of 41 days on market. The lowest priced home sold was $158,000 in Armour Hills and the highest was $615,000 in Romanelli Gardens.
In October 2013, 23 homes sold. The median list and sales price were the same: $279,000 and 35 days on market.
Virtually the same number of homes sold compared to a year ago, but the sales price was higher.
Looking at year to date figures:
From Jan - October 2014, 244 homes have sold at a median sales price of $307,000 and 37 days on market.
From Jan - October 2013, 271 homes sold at a median sales price of $298,000 and 46 days on market.
So far this year, the trend has been fewer homes sold yet prices are up. There is still a lack of updated, well maintained homes in the $200-$225K price range in Brookside. It is encouraging that home values continue to rise, so we continue to make up equity lost during the housing crash during the recession.
Currently there are 81 single family homes for sale in the Brookside zip code of 64113 with a median list price of $384,950 and 80 days on market. Of the 81 homes for sale, 24 are priced over $500K and 9 are priced $1million. (All figures taken from Heartland MLS and deemed reliable but not guaranteed).
