The peak spring and summer buying season is over, and as we get closer to the holidays, there will be fewer listings that pop on the market. For Brookside, (using zip code 64113) last month’s stats were similar to a year ago–with higher median price. Let’s break it down:
Aug 2019 August 2018
Median list price: $385,000 Median list price: $354,500
Median sales price: $380,000 Median sales price: $338,750
No. of homes sold: 26 No. of homes sold: 28
Days on market: 26 Days on market: 22
The lowest closed sales price last month was $275,000 and the highest was $973,000. Now let’s look at year-to-date stats:
Jan-Aug 2019 Jan-Aug 2018
Median list price: $389,950 Median list price: $399,900
Median sales price: $380,000 Median sales price: $390,000
No. of homes sold: 217 No. of homes sold: 201
Days on market: 22 Days on market: 18
Prices are down 2.5% compared to same time last year; however I think that could be caused by more lower priced homes selling later in the year. Overall, I expect Brookside home values to be higher than 2018 at the end of the year. Number of homes sold and days are market are running similar to 2018.
Currently there are 42 active listings in Brookside, with an average list price of $479,975 and 40 days on market. Prices range from $229,000 to just under $6 million.
