Waldo Home Sales Report-July 2019

Reading this blog may seem like the Groundhog’s Day movie…same news about Waldo home values increasing, over and over!  Let’s take a look at the numbers:

July 2019                                                              July 2018

Median list price:     $239,000                         Median list price:    $215,000

Median sales price:   $243,000                       Median sales price:  $210,000

No. of homes sold:     34                                  No. of homes sold:      43

Days on market:      3                                       Days on market:         8

Most of the homes that closed last month sold at or over list price, at a substantial increase over last July.  Fewer homes sold, and were available, so that pushes prices up and note–listings went under contract in an average of 3 days!  Below are YTD numbers:

Jan-July 2019                                                               Jan-July 2018

Median list price:     $225,000                                  Median list price:     $199,800

Median sales price:  $225,000                                 Median sales price:   $200,000

No. of homes sold:     198                                         No. of homes sold:     234

Days on market:        8                                             Days on market:         16

When there are fewer homes for sale, prices go up–that’s what’s been happening in Waldo.  Most sellers continue to get ask or over list price for their homes.  So far, Waldo home prices  have risen 12.5% this year.  Currently there are 29 active listings, with a median price of $235,000 and 41 days on market.  Prices range from $45,000 to $399,000.
