Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: Waldo (Kansas City MO) April 2020 Home Sales Report

Waldo (Kansas City MO) April 2020 Home Sales Report

Waldo home prices have been rising fast--will the pandemic slow down the market?  Prices in the Brookside/Waldo area have taken a dip, but I still see strong demand for homes in these areas.  Let's take a look at the numbers for Waldo, using the boundaries of State Line to Holmes and Gregory to 85th:

April 2020                                                       April 2019

Median list price:     $197,500                       $227,000

Median sales price:    $208,000                    $217,750

No. of homes sold:       26                                  32

Days on market:           5                                    9


Home prices down about 4.5% compared to April of last year. However, note that sellers were getting over list price for their properties.  This may be due to bidding wars as a result of lower inventory.  Below are the year-to-date comparisons:


Jan-April 2020                                                  Jan-April 2019

Median list price:      $209,450                          $225,000

Median sales price:    $210,750                        $219,900  

No. of homes sold:       90                                        93

Days on market:           21                                        19


Year-to-date, prices have fallen just over 4%.  Currently there are eleven active single family listings in Waldo, with an average price of $279,900 and 14 days on market.

Lots of good information there for buyers and sellers, your market still is active and falling days on market shows that there is demand for homes. Hope you are busy and sellers will be well advised to give you a call.
