Housing sales continue to be strong in Brookside! This is positive trend that we have experienced all year. Here are the home sales statistics for August 2012, plus year-to-date figures. I am using the main Brookside zip code of 64113 for this report on single family home sales:
In August 2012, 31 homes sold. The average list price was $375,358 and the average sales price was $357,238. Average days on market: 95.
In August 2011, 21 homes sold. The average list price was $304,262 and the average sales price was $295,040. Average days on market: 78.
These stats show the housing market in Brookside continues to outperform last year. More units are selling this year, and at higher prices. There was a huge jump in average price over last year –28%–for the month of August! Some of the increase can be attributed to more higher priced homes selling this year.
Year to date, 200 homes have sold in zip code 64113, at an average sales price of $321,320, with 109 average days on market. From January-August 2011, 142 homes sold at an average price of $304,125 and 130 days on market.
These year to date figures reflect the same monthly trends we’ve seen: more homes sold at a higher price, with less days on market before going under contract.
Typically, home sales are slower in the last four months of the year. We’ll see if Brookside continues to outperform 2011 sales as we head into the cooler months. There are fewer listings coming on the market, so buyers will have less to choose from, and the attractive, updated homes should sell even quicker.
