As promised, this year I will begin reporting home sales stats for the Waldo area in the blog. The geographical area I’m tracking is: 89th St to the south, Gregory to the north, State Line to the west and Holmes to the east–these are the boundaries defined by the Waldo Business Association. Prices are up in Waldo for the 2013 year–let’s look at the numbers.
In 2013, 386 single family homes sold. The median price was $133,000 and 79 days on market.
In 2012, 335 single family homes sold. The median price was $121,500 and 110 days on market.
Overall, prices rose by 9.46% and days on market dropped by one month! Currently, there are 83 active homes for sale in Waldo, with a median price of $125,000 and 107 days on market. The lowest price home is $58,900 and the highest is $289,500.

The geographical tracking area to the East should extend to Troost and not Holmes. I realize this is defined (arbitrarily) by the Waldo Business Assocation but you’re missing a large chuck of housing developments that live less than two miles from 75th and Wornall.
